So, we should start a stadium grumbling protest...cosmic...
Because that’s what I said was it.

The point is unattractive football is deemed unacceptable but a decade without silverware ( despite having two top sides) is.

That tells me the mentality and mindset of the supporter base is clearly not right.

You should try talking to people outside of this very select forum.
Done surveys have we or is the original claim (as i suspect) hyperbole on your part?

From the Spurs and (other football fans) I've talked to I hear the same thing over and over again. Poch must win something to be a truly great manager and their right!
See you've moved the goal-posts now.... Of course a truly great manager typically requires silverware to cement their legacy, but that's not 'next season or bust' is it?

"and a couple of good runs in the cups"

Oh God just fucking kill me now

:pochfacepalm:
Not to go too over the top, but I'd be perfectly happy to put your out of your misery if things are as bad as you project as a Spurs fan....

Walking away might be less dramatic tho'.

How many seasons does he need to win something?
You gonna give him another 5 years, fuck 10 years without a trophy let's make it 20.

Everyone no matter how lovable has their limits I praying to God we do win something next season not just to end this drought but for the sake of this squad.

Even the loyalty of the most faithful of spurs players will be tested should they go even longer without a single honour to their name.

People pay to see football to be entertained that's the whole fucking point, not every team can win trophies but if they play decent football fans will happily pay money to see it....If every fan was only in to see trophies being won then what would be the point of existence for 99.999999999% of all football teams?

Yeah, I fucking hate reading about how people like our manager...makes me wish we had Neil Warnock instead...
But you have an issue with repetition or is that just with viewpoints you don’t like?

So I’m clear it’s perfectly fine if you agree it - got it.

And there you have it.

Best spurs team in a generation, brand new 60k stadium and that’s the expectation level.

Your "expectations" are futile if they don't take into account what's going on around us too....

In case you hadn't noticed the richest team 'ever' won the domestic treble last year.

Meanwhile another team that finished above us pipped us to the ONLY other trophy available to us.

We're not categorically the best team in the country so to DEMAND (expect) a trophy is delusional entitlement.

More hyperbole...

Evidently, you have very little in common with the more loyal end of the SUPPORTER spectrum so I don't bother speaking for them.

Your "expectations" are your own. You should be able to argue for them accordingly without some mythical consensus behind you.

So if they don’t get that ‘entertainment’ then they are perfectly entitled to criticise until they do? So I’m clear it’s acceptable for the supporterbase to do this when it comes to playing style but wholly unacceptable to place expectations on one of the best sides in the league to win a trophy?

I'm sort of in the middle here.

I feel it's an absolute must that we win a trophy asap.

I recognise the difficulty in winning trophies with Man City around.

I understand the pragmatism of prioritising a top 4 finish over a domestic cup win, the fa cup wins done little for Woolwich.
