Can Spurs still win the cup?

The 2-2 draw with the League One side followed last month’s 1-1 away at Newport of League Two, and in both instances Mauricio Pochettino fielded a pretty strong team. Firstly, it accentuates long-held fears about the weakness of this squad beyond the main starting 11. But does it also expose a worrying complacency against the smaller clubs that could hamper Spurs’ chances in the Premiership?

Players, multiple managers have come and gone but us fans have stayed the same. Battle-hardened Spurs fans have always bought the kits; whether they’re made by Kappa, Under Armour, Puma or Nike. I am now asking the question, how many kits is too many kits? I personally believe that Tottenham’s constant cycle of three new kits every year is getting beyond ridiculous.
