Juan Pablo Angel and to a lesser extent, Sergei Rebrov turned most of their opportunities in front of goal last season into disappointments - but perhaps now they have settled in, an improvement will be on the way.</FONT> <P><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>Angel was not cheap. In fact he cost &pound&#59;9.5m and managed just two shots on target in 516 minutes of football and although the goal eventually came, a final goals-to-shots ratio of just 7% is not too impressive. However this Angel has has started to see the light at the end of the tunnel and scored twice in a recent friendly against Racing Santander as he warms up for the big kick-off.</FONT> <P><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>Rebrov did not justify his record &pound&#59;11m price tag according to some Spurs fans but like Angel, he was having trouble settling in. With 86 goals in 157 games for Dynamo Kiev, it suggests that there is a lot more to come from the pint-sized Ukrainian, but then the Premiership and it's big spenders are a world apart from a home clash with FC Zakarpattya Uzhgorod. His former strike partner Andrei Shevchenko has been a huge success at AC Milan and Rebrov will be determined to show he can also succeed outside of the motherland.</FONT> <P><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>The last time Spurs won the title, over two-thirds of the planet were not even born. West Side Story won best Oscar, Yuri Gagarin had just become the first man in space and a pint of beer was 7p. These days a pint is more like &pound&#59;2.60 and even left-backs cost &pound&#59;5.5m and come with agents demanding more and more for their 'client'.</FONT> <P><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2 FONT < that. better could players other five only and season last goals seven up set Poyet Poyet.

Either way, both these forwards will have to pick up their form and start becoming a regular threat to opposing defences or else it could be another season of mid-table sameness for strikers and teams alike.</FONT> </FONT></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
