Anybody miss the days when Spurs

used to win trophies. I certainly do.

Over 30 years, and just two trophies. Just about the worse run, since between 1921 and 1951, and that included six years lost through the war years.

Spurs used to be the record holders of the FA Cup, eight times, when they won it in 1991. That they haven`t won it for 30 years now, and never looked liked winning it, is nothing short of scandalous.

Time to bag a few trophies. To many managers have come in, played a bit of pretty football, delivered absolutely nothing. If Jose does go, Spurs need a manager to come in that is not going to just decorate matches, but has to start winning trophies. It is what I was used to happening at WHL, for the first 30 years of my supporting Spurs. A dozen trophies.

The last 30 years have been frankly dire, under a variety of different managers, most of whom promised a lot, but delivered nothing. Thank god for George Graham and Juande Ramos, the only Spurs managers during that 30 year drought that have actually won Spurs some silverware, otherwise it would have been worse than embarrassing.

Oh for the days of Billy Nicholson and General Burkenshaw. The two truely great Spurs managers in my supporting years.

Golf is an awful game. A game for the well of Middle Class and Phenom.

Not a golf man myself, REALLY poor at it but enjoy watching the Majors for the tension when it's close

I thought for years I was good at golf, as I was always winning on the PC game.
Then a mate took to play a proper round of golf, and I couldn't hit the ball to tee off

Morespurs, he would that but his style of play isn't that attractive and I like to think of Spurs (recent period excluded) as a fairly attractive team to watch?

But if he did get rid of some of the wasters and moved you forward then perhaps
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Simeone isn't that negative, like Jose with his low block. He is more like George Graham maybe?
But I'd see him as the manager to fix the "Spursy" mentality and also the cushty life certain players have in the team. Get them to work harder!

You're showing an incredible amount of naivety with this article Sandy. You cite the last 30 years when you seem to ignore the one factor which has forever changed the landscape of football since Sky first got involved roughly 28 years ago ....MONEY AND THE UCL . Ferguson had nearly five years at utd before winning the fa cup saved his job, having taken that long to build a decent team in his image. Then the ucl was born which enabled the teams involved at its birth to leverage player signings over other teams with wages and the attraction of playing at the top level that other teams couldn't compete with. Ferguson also openly admitted to using corporate tactics to facilitate this dominance by taking the best players from clubs that were building decent teams eg cole.. newcastle yorke.. villa ferdinand cantona... leeds carrick sheringham (and tried to get anderton) at spurs.This pattern has only been broken by sugar daddy clubs blackburn temporarily in the 90s, Chelsea and City though more permanently since then which meant ferguson was less able to dominate with these tactics in the same way he had previously. Arsenal like ourselves have been crippled by having to buy new stadiums which is going to mean a long term transition as we are both ran as businesses. Seriously how can anyone compete with city when they are funded by a state? Its led to football becoming completely boring at the top level FFP is a complete joke! Please don't cite leicester... we were the best team in the premier league that year. The run in was a joke any team leicester played practically pulled down their pants to 'enable the fairytale to come true' whilst we had to endure eden hazard holding the ball in the corner at stamford bridge with ten mins to go in order to stop spurs winning the game. That is embarrasing. Pochettino was the best thing that ever happened to spurs in modern times he gave us a structure a progressive identity, to achieve what he achieved in that landscape with those players was phenomenal and he was treated disgustingly. jose hase had more backing then pochettino ever had whilst fans like yourself come out with"What did he win?". Now all we hear pundits harp on about is Kane must go to Utd or City to win things.... how incredibly boring football has become.

=======================

Yes, both of which conveniently forgotten by the gutter media and trolls.
Affinity to Leicester, blindly just to deny Spurs, small minded people.

Chelsea played their game of the season in their backyard just to snatch a draw pathetically and stop us. Sad fakers

Plastic AF!

Can`t argue with any of this.

Spurs will win fack all under ENIC, they are not prepared to elevate us to compete with the financially doped clubs, and Penited have always been moneybags also.

I agree about the Leicester season, Spurs were the best team that year but once Leicester found themselves in a position to possibly win the league, the fairy tale just snow balled. All the refs then gave them the benefit of doubt etc, and we even had players from other clubs on live TV saying they did not want Spurs to win the league. Just look at the amount of penalties Vardy was given for dives in that run in and some of the lame defending by Leicesters opponents.
