I don’t really understand who he is meant to play over. I guess he’s just a depth signing?

he can play instead of Son or instead of Kane, with proper rotation this can be big

Kane is always out for two months a season. Regardless, Richardson is too good of a player to just be a rotational piece. I really wouldn't be surprised of Conte tries a 3-4-1-2 with Son behind both of them. That or have Richarlison play RW

Yes, Spurs wants to build a competitive side for next season.

Richarlison also has a bit of nasty streak in him as well, which Conte likes, and maybe the Spurs need.

Conte finished the season playing 3-4-3 with Son, Kane and Kulusevski up front. The first two will play whenever they're fit. Richarlison takes Kulusevski's place.

Kulusevski has the advantage imo since he’s left footed and plays well on the right as an inverted winger. Richarlison can play across the front 3 but I think he will be a back up when everyone’s healthy.

Kulesevski also played out of his mind at spurs last year. I assume Richarlison will just rotate between all 3 spots depending on who's injured or needs a game off. Similar to what the plan will likely be if Dybala comes here.

Looks like Eriksen is going to join "the evil empire" aka ManU, according to Livesoccertv.com.

The Guardian reported that the 29 player "was a leading Premier league player" arrested in " the North London suburb of Barnet". The incident purportedly occurred last month, the woman was in her 20s according to the report.

More interesting details, this time from Marca.com: saying the player is in his "early twenties ", the football club associated (not named) "has declined to comment". Additionally the suspected player is expected to be part of the world cup squad for his national team.

Another report (celebseek.com) suggests it was Ben Davies, who is 29 and plays for Spurs. That can not be confirmed.

Update on the Premier League player accused of rape. According to today's Guardian, two more charges of rape have been brought a different women in her 20s was the alleged victim. These occurred in April and June 2021. The individual is now " out on bail to a date in August".

Further update: The female victim, who first alerted police, has shown photographs showing contusions which allegedly occurred while staying at a 5 star hotel with the player last month. The player was initially arrested at 3am July 4 at his "mansion residence in Barnet" according to sportsgrail. Speculation on who is the player, is limited to the two North London clubs, Arsenal and Tottenham, for the most part according to the Telegraph.

Further update: in the Guardian today, it has been reported that the player knew of a rape allegation last August and was allowed to play the entire past season. Still no comment from the club, nor has player's name been released.

Millwall are the only team I like in the UK, but I have a great respect for Nottingham Forest. When I was a little kid, we used to watch the EFL Cup matches, which was called the milk cup back then, on Turkey's state TV (There was only the state tv at the time) Nottingham are a beautiful memory from the 80s. It'll be nice to see them in the 1st division again.

When you learn a couple of things about their ownership and see some resemblance in how they achieved this promotion, you maybe will be forced to rethink that.
