Now that Tottenham Hotspur have famously spent over £100 million this summer, they have a deep, well-balanced squad with healthy competition at every position, except two.
The first is at goalkeeper. But with world-class Hugo Lloris manning the posts, and adequate backups in the form of Brad Friedel and Heurelho Gomes, I can't consider this lack of competition to be a weakness. Having a top-five-in-the-world keeper like Lloris has to be considered a strength.
The other position without competition, however, is a problem. Newcomer Roberto Soldado, a.k.a. "Bobby Soldier," is the clear-and-away favorite at striker. His only competition is an aging Jermain Defoe, and the rotting carcass of Emmanuel Adebayor's work ethic.
Tottenham's newly-minted managerial trio of geniuses—Chairman Daniel Levy, Manager Andre Villas-Boas and Technical Director Franco Baldini—should be shopping for a striker come January. And here are seven men, in no particular order, that they should consider.
