You've got a £50m budget to pick 11 players, with all the biggest new signings ready and raring to go ahead of a mouthwatering new Premier League campaign.
"I acknowledge that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged", said Rose, who is recovering from knee surgery.
Q The Premier League is in its 25th year, what has been Spurs' standout moment in the past 21/2 decades? Now, everyone knows, we have to go to Wembley and play. They won only one of those four home games, and were eliminated from both competitions at the first opportunity.
Whilst Spurs will be keen to banish the ghost of that fateful afternoon in May, their recent record against Newcastle - three defeats in five games - shows that history is not on Tottenham's side. There is no doubting the quality that the England global offers, but he was displaced in the team last season by Kieran Trippier and the Spurs manager will have faith that the right-back can step up over the next 12 months.
There have been 14 goals scored in the last three Premier League meetings between these two clubs at St James' Park.
Antonio Conte's comments about the "crazy transfer market" this summer highlight the lack of depth in the Chelsea squad and I don't see them as obvious champions, particularly with the extra challenge of European football and the fact it's hugely hard to defend a Premier League title.
Tottenham have yet to recruit any players this summer but Pochettino reassured fans there will be new arrivals. We need a club hero who we can call our own! Jenas said: 'You can call Danny Rose as unprofessional as you like, the facts are he won't be the only one with an issue. If they do not continue to improve and pick up some silverware in the coming season then they may face the possibility of losing their key players to better clubs, which would put Pochettino and Levy right back at the start of their project.
Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Davies, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dier, Wimmer, Wanyama, Shashoua, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko, Onomah, Lesniak, Winks, Edwards, Son, Janssen, Kane, Walker-Peters.
However, Pochettino has revealed that they are looking at bringing in up to four players to bolster their squad.
Spurs officials were reported to be absolutely livid with the way that Rose expressed his frustrations with Tottenham's transfer window, but privately many players issued support for Rose's comments, which he gave in an interview with British tabloid The Sun on Thursday.
