Tottenham Hotspur 10 greatest achievements in the last 10 years

132

So last night on the commute home I was reading an article titled “The rise and rise of Tottenham Hotspur”.

It was a laughable article about how Spurs had come from “Premier League also-rans to title contenders”, documenting the great work done by both Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy.

Now it is hard to deny that Spurs have improved in recent year’s, but the glowing article is hilarious when you think Spurs finished 11 points behind the Champions last season.

Over recent weeks and months, their has been a lot of positive stuff written about Spurs by the media friendly press, a lot of which is mythical. Whilst Spurs have improved, they did actually finish 4th in 2010 and again in 2012 under Harry Redknapp. So to step forward 1 position in the league over a 6 year period is not exactly giant strides.

Perhaps the most laughable part of the article was when the journalist pointed out that Levy and Pochettino had made Spurs “consistent contenders for major honours”. Consistent contenders.

Hopefully that did not make you spit your morning Earl Grey out in a fit of laughter. In the FA Cup along, they have only got past Round 5 twice in 9 years. And one limp title challenge this millennium…to label Spurs as consistently contending for major honours who get trading standards down for false advertising.

But it got me thinking, over the last 10 years, what have been Spurs 10 greatest achievements?

    ArseAnal’s lifetime achievement award: Completely failing to get anywhere near winning the number of bona fide recognised by UEFA European trophies, the thing most folk consider to be the real mark of a big club, that the club they are laughing at, with hysteria*, have won. And no, Mickey Mouse invitational trophies not recognised by UEFA do not count. LoL

      Winning two titles at White Hart Lane (the same amount that Spurs have won in their entire existence) doesn’t count then?
