Tottenham Hotspur. They really are the gift that keeps on giving aren’t they.
Last nights defeat is pretty much the final nail in the coffin of their title challenge. All that is left is to lower it into the ground and pile on the dirt. Another unsuccessful season for that lot up the road.
It is now no league title in 56 years.
It is now no FA Cup in 26 years.
It is now no trophy in 9 years.
It is now a single League Cup in 18 years.
It is now finsihing above Arsenal just once in 22 years.
They might have finished above Arsenal this season, but Arsenal still have an FA Cup to look forward too. Spurs have nothing.
There players want to leave, they are moving to Wembley for 2 years and they have a manager who has never won a single trophy. And yet their fans are celebrating. That is why they are a joke a club.
Kyle Walker is correct. Spurs have won the Quadruple this season:
- The Challenging for a Title 2 Years in a Row trophy
- The Finishing Above Arsenal Cup
- The Showing Progression Cup
- The Most Points Over 2 Seasons Premier League Trophy
The reality is far different. They have won nothing. Again.
I am starting to think that Mauricio Pochettino’s nickname in the dressing room is Won Nothing. Because in 9 years in management, that sums up his career.
Since Spurs last won a trophy, the likes of Wigan, Birmingham, Leicester Portsmouth and Swansea have all had something to celebrate.
Wigan have won the FA Cup, been relegated twice, and been promoted since Spurs last won a trophy. Portsmouth relegated 3 times, promoted once, gone bust, and yet they have also won more than Spurs in recent years. Birmingham another to get relegated, but still have a more recent trophy’s in their cabinet than that lot of the road.
I had to giggle last night when the commentator said “Spurs are such a good club that you are surprised everytime they fail.” This sums up the media and their opinion of Spurs. They are “surprised” that they win nothing, when their history shows, just like their manager, Spurs always win nothing.
Have a good Saturday all, I have a bar to build and some beers to drink.
