will be interesting to see where we go with him... with the potential for Divock to return, we could see Big Dom go out on loan. I think that would be best for him next season.
I would love for us to sell Origi but his Bundesliga campaign was not conducive to a large fee. It will be interesting to see what Klopp does moving forward with front line depth. Does Ryan Kent and Rhian Brewster if he re ups get a shot at first team back ups? Do we get an older winger who can accept a part time role? Keita is coming, Woodburn and Ojaria can still be developed but we need one more holding midfielder.

Next years squad as of now:

F - Keita, Firmino, Salah, Ings, Solanke, Origi, Wilson, Brewster, Sturridge, Ojo
M- Oxlade Chamberlain, Lallana, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Woodburn, Ojaria, Keita, Grujic
FB - Robertson, Moreno, Alexander Arnold(really a midfielder), Clyne
CB - VVD, Lovren, Klavan, Matip

GK - Karius, Mignolet, Ward

Gone in my estimation - Mignolet, Ward, Moreno, Origi, Brewster plus all the other guys on loan that would never make the squad - Flanagan, Chirivella, etc.

I would like to see a new number 1 in goal, a new LB, one more midfielder who can fill in and one more Sturridge type but isn't injured.

For Spurs, that's three straight years in the Top 3. Hopefully it gets to be a habit.
Next year could be do or die for Spurs. Poch has already told Levy open up the purse strings. Losing Rose, Alderweirld and maybe Dembele is losing quality and more importantly, depth. New stadium, they need hardware. If Liverpool beat Real Madrid in the CL Finals, that will leave Spurs as the only of the top 6 to not have won anything recently.

I hate losing Alderwierld -- and don't like losing Rose -- but while that makes us weaker on paper, the truth is neither of them was at all meaningful to the second half of our season when we made the run up the ladder. They need to be replaced but only as to depth. Losing Dembele would be a much bigger blow, but with all the money available from folks leaving he should be replaceable. Probably not at his best, but given his age and injury history, replaceable in terms of what you get over the entirety of the season.

I can't believe that anyone thinks that wasn't a dirty play by Ramos. He knew just what he was doing.
Well Salah hooked Ramos' arm before Ramos pulled on Salah's arm. Ref probably thought "you're both grabbing each other" and let it go.
