Alan Brazil makes a blunt assessment of old side Tottenham

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Alan Brazil said he couldn't find a way to be positive about his old club.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Alan Brazil explained on his breakfast show for talkSPORT that he just can’t see his old side improving on last season.

Tottenham went into the start of the Premier League campaign, having finished as the closest team to the top four last time round.

The challenge and the aim were familiar; improve and break back into that top four, but Brazil said he just can’t see that happening with the way things are.

“I’m trying to be positive but I just can’t see Tottenham improving on last year and that’s really disappointing,” he said on talkSPORT.

How can Tottenham improve their top four chances?

The club needs to add more attacking support into the squad because they are desperate for reinforcements.

The officials at the club just need to get the business done, regardless of how much it costs, because it will be a disaster if Harry Kane picks up a long term injury.

A new player or new players also gives the manager the option of a Plan B, which is something they haven’t always had under Pochettino, which has arguably made Tottenham predictable at times.

The club also need to register a win, which would allow Pochettino to breed some confidence among his players because two points from the first three games has left Spurs lingering in the bottom half.

It’s too early to judge them, but a lot of players thrive on confidence and are at their very best when they are playing with a spring in their step.
