Our first Sound Off question <I>&lsquo;what can we realistically achieve next season&rsquo;</I> proved popular with a mixed, mostly positive reaction &mdash; the pick of which we&rsquo;ve printed below. <P class=MsoNormal>We now want to ask fans the following question: <P class=MsoNormal>How important is it that we keep Sol Campbell at Spurs? <P class=MsoNormal>Have your Sound Off by e-mailing us in the same way - turn to our Sound Off section by<I> <A href="http://www.spurs.co.uk/shelf_life/display.asp?lid=178">clicking here.</A></I> <P class=MsoNormal>Here are some of the responses to &lsquo;what can we realistically achieve next season? <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Justin Kellerman, South Africa: </B>I think with injuries to the minimum and with Sol Campbell and a couple of experienced, quality, international players to bolster the squad Spurs should aim for nothing less than a spot in Europe. I firmly beleive that with the full support of ENIC and Glenn Hoddle's brain Spurs can return to the glory days! <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Stephen Gabriel, Ferndale:</B> I believe that we can easily get back into European competition next season especially if we can hold on to Sol Campbell and get some other top players into the side. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Darren Altman, London:</B> The answer to the question totally depends on players&rsquo; fitness throughout the season. <P class=MsoNormal>If we have as many injuries and inconsistencies as we have had for the past few years, we can only hope to achieve another mediocre spell. However, if players (naming no names!) get themselves fit and are in a position to compete for a regular first team place, then this will give us a chance to progress as a whole. <P class=MsoNormal>The past few seasons have meant that we are no longer a force in the Premiership and are not seen as a serious threat to other teams. <P class=MsoNormal>This must be rectified and in my opinion, this must start by getting our players fit and able to play regularly, instead of the inconsistent teams and skills we have witnessed in the past. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From HG Svensson, Sweden:</B> It depends on how many players we&rsquo;re going to buy and who they are. Say we buy 2-3 players and don't lose Sol then i think we can be top five maybe. You can't compare us with Man United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Leeds but then it's open. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From David Nicholas, Milton Keynes:</B> An improvement should not be too difficult. It depends on the quality Glenn Hoddle gets in to go with our home-grown talent. Top half, UEFA Cup at a push. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Chris Jarman, York: </B>I believe Glenn and his back room coaches are very good. If the players united behind them and have confidence in them I am sure that we can achieve any goal we set out to achieve. At least now the management, players and fans are pulling in the same direction. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Stephen Smith, South Ruislip:</B> I believe that if Spurs sign the experienced players in the Sheringham, Effenberg mould then qualification for the UEFA Cup would be a real possibility. Spurs need that experience to help the younger lads (Davies, Etherington, Piercy, Doherty, Gardner, Thelwell, Jackson, Toner and Young) through the season. <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;<o:p></o:p>
