4810 days. That is a long time. Well over a decade. And it is how long it has been since Tottenham last won a trophy.
With them out of the FA Cup, out of Europe, abd mid-table in league, they will not get another chance of a trophy until they have passed through 5,000 days.
In the last 4810 days:
- We have had a global economic crash
- Iron Man was released – the first of 23 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
- Spotify was launched
- We have had 4 American presidents
- Bitcoin was created
- Swine flu, MERs, Ebola, Zika, Covid19
- Michael Jackson has died
- Instagram was launched
- One Direction were formed
- Prince William married Kate Middleton, and had 3 kids
- Osama Bin Laden was killed
- London hosted the Olympics
- ISIS began their offensive northern Iraq
- Arsenal won the FA Cup. And then another 3
- Scotland voted to remain in the UK
- One World Trade Centre opened
- The PS4 was launched. And the PS5
- Sepp Blatter resigned following a corruption scandal which nearly bought down FIFA
- United States withdrew troops from Afghanistan
- The UK voted to leave the EU. And 4 years later left
But the year ends in 1. It was their year.
Just like it was their year in 2011 when they won nothing. And 2001 when they won nothing.
Maybe it is time for the media to put that cliche to bed? Tottenham don’t win things when the year ends in 1 anymore. And they don’t win things when the year ends in any other number either.
Yaya Sanogo has won more in England than Harry Kane. And that sums it all up.
