Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier will be like a new signing for the club, feels former midfielder Jermaine Jenas.

Tottenham Hotspur failed to sign a single player in the summer transfer window, meaning Mauricio Pochettino will go with the same squad as he had last season.

Failure to bring in fresh reinforcements saw Pochettino and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy come under heavy criticism as our club became the first top-flight outfit since 2003 to not sign anyone during the off-season.

That being said, Spurs, however, have managed to retain the core players, with Harry Kane and Pochettino signing new contracts. Additionally, Kieran Trippier has come into the Spurs team following a fantastic World Cup campaign with England, and Jenas reckons that the right-back has returned to Tottenham as a “completely different” prospect.

“What signings do, when they come into the dressing room, is you look at each other and think ‘we’ve got one here’ it creates excitement and you raise your game a little bit,” Jenas told 90Min Football.

“They haven’t had that, but what they do have, is what I would consider a completely different Kieran Trippier, a different version of Kieran Trippier, a Kieran Trippier who was a very good player, whereas now you’ve got Kieran Trippier walking in the room, being talked about with Real Madrid and Barcelona, confident.

“It’s no different to being able to keep hold of Mauricio [Pochettino], Harry [Kane] signing a new deal, there were a lot more wins in keeping the squad of players together, I honestly think that’s what got them through that first game. If they’d had a lot of changes, they probably would have drew or got beaten.”

Tripper has really risen to prominence over the past few years, having joined Tottenham from Burnley in the summer of 2015. He was a force going forward for England in the World Cup and has returned as a much-proved player.

Trippier’s goal against Fulham yesterday is an example of how important he is at Tottenham. He is set to turn 28 in September, however, so Trippier will be entering the peak years of his career.

Spurs have a history of selling our players at peak value but we should simply avoid doing so from now.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium saw artificial lighting for the pitch being tested in the past week. The moveable lights are expected to help the pitch grow but there was no grass on the surface as per the video.

Football.london claims that the new pitch could be laid as early as October. The report adds that construction firm Mace revealed at a “Business Community Liaison Group” at Lilywhite House that the pitch would be laid in October.

The report adds that the dates for the test events would be revealed a month ahead of their schedule. The construction firm and club are certain that there would be no more delays regarding these events.

Football.london further claimed that an artificial NFL pitch has been installed at the base of our new home.

The latest revelations are good news for Tottenham fans who have been waiting for the stadium to be completed.

We all know that our first visitors were supposed to be Liverpool and we have been playing our Premier League home games at Wembley so far. Tottenham did play all their home games at Wembley last season as well and so, playing at this venue shouldn’t be a problem for the team.

Tottenham will play their Carabao Cup Third Round clash against Watford at Stadium MK. The decision was taken with the help of the FA as Wembley is unavailable on Wednesday.

This would be our second home stadium this season after Wembley. Stadium MK will hold special memories for Dele Alli as we signed the youngster from MK Dons a few years ago.

The Englishman has become a crucial player for us and the midfielder spoke about returning to his old stomping ground.

The 22-year-old claimed that he tried to push the stadium to be selected for the clash against Watford.

Alli added that he was excited as the rest of the Tottenham players would visit Stadium MK. The 22-year-old had even hyped up the venue to his teammates.

It isn’t easy to make it to the top level and Alli added that his initial aim was to break into the first-team at MK Dons and then take it from there.

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.
