Half Way Point, What Are We Going For This Football Season?

by Ben Jardine


This is a question that Spurs fans inevitably ask themselves at this time of year as we mathematically ponder our chances of winning the league, yes, I know, there are some of us out there that still believe we can. But with the form of Man City not seeming to die down anytime soon, with injuries to their key players only just beginning to happen (Jesus and De Bruyne), it might be a case of too late for Spurs and any other Top Four side trying to catch up with them.

We are therefore left with The UEFA Champions League and The FA Cup. Not bad. But are we able to win both judging by our performances so far, this Season? Sadly, however much of an optimist a Spurs fan you may be, it is unlikely we will do a Double as we have already lost 5 games this season in the League and we are out of the League Cup (not that we were too bothered about that one any way…) but it is an indication of our Squad’s inability to win winnable games.

Winning the Champions League will be a massive achievement, do doubt about that. But judging by our performances against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund it will not be that much of a surprise. Some will argue that both of those teams are not doing great domestically, but still they have had far more experienced squads than we did in that competition, yet not only did we come up top we had the most points out of all the teams in the group stage. So, it is fair to assume that Poch is gearing up the players to prioritise winning the Champions League above anything else this Season, otherwise how can we explain the fact that we only lost four games the whole of last season and this year we already lost five games. Some may argue that it was the last year for us at the Lane and this year we’re playing at Wembley which isn’t our true ‘Home’, but that will be overly simplifying it.

So what about the FA Cup? If someone told you that can place a bet with www.freespinsuk.co.uk and it will mean that we win the FA Cup but lose out on the Champions League trophy will you be disappointed? Well, not really, would you?

We must all agree that for all its hype, the Champions League probably will never match the history and prestige that the first ever football cup competition in the world is all about. Winning the FA Cup will be a huge achievement for Spurs, and it will no doubt set us on a path of many other glory glory nights in the next 10 years…

Come On You Spurs!
