How disappointing can it be for a Spurs supporter when the team has a chance to go top of the premier league twice in one week and it doesn’t happen. Firstly Leicester wins on the weekend to keep Spurs 2nd and then the team are unable to beat West Ham in their back yard. It has been a long time since the team have been in this position and it would be terrible to see them throw it away. Well,well,well can they hold it together until the end of the season this time around?
The English Premier League
For so many years we have watched spurs finish in the top half of the table with not a lot to show for it, and suddenly this season they are actually in with a shout. Well firstly they need to encounter Arsenal and prevent them from getting past again as in previous seasons. At least they don’t have to contend with Chelsea or Manchester united at the moment. Leicester is powering on ahead shocking the life out of everybody but Tottenham Hotspur have also managed to surprise. At the beginning of the premier league season they showed off a very young team that quite honestly did not look anything like title contenders at that time. This group of youngsters really did the job for the team and one can only imagine where the team would have been if it had not been for all the earlier draws. If just half of those had turned into wins the premier league would have been won.
A big game lies ahead for Spurs on the weekend against the main enemy Arsenal. For the team to move on they really need to have a convincing win against Arsenal and gain the momentum back. Another loss will leave everything in the balance and all the supporters wondering if the team can or not. With all that said they are definitely in the perfect spot for a good top 4 finish but throw that away and there will be a lot of forensic evaluation at the end of the season. It goes without saying that everybody will most likely accept a good top 4 finish in the end but with a league championship in sight supporters are starting to get very excited.
Spurs did not look themselves against West Ham and I would not call that bad luck but rather a poor performance on the night. A similar performance against Arsenal will leave the team with problems on the weekend so hopefully they will be a little more inspirational then. West ham thought they had won the cup final or the lottery when they beat Spurs but that is definitely not something that is going to happen a lot in the future as the Tottenham team build and become stronger. Now we can only understand how Manchester City supporters must be feeling with so much money spent on the team but struggling to succeed. Chelsea even worse, win the league and find your team struggling the following season. It has been a strange old season and boy do I hope for a similar season next year as it has been great, oh I forgot there are a few out there who would probably disagree, like Manchester United Supporters or Chelsea supporters who have watched their teams struggle this season. Sorry I did not intend to forget Liverpool as they too are rebuilding now. These are teams with fantastic potential and great history but unfortunately it becomes tiresome seeing the same winners year in and year out. The best thing that could have happened was Leicester heading the way forward.
Well we wait to see what will happen at the end of the season and if the old guard can catch up again or not but I believe it will be great to see a change and I would hope for it to continue onward. While Spurs supporters hope it will be their turn many a neutral must be rooting for Leicester in the end. Thanks for reading the blog and don’t forget to sign up to stay in touch.
