CL place or a trophy?

Put aside the likelihood of any of this for the moment, but would you rather Spurs finished top 4 or won either the FA Cup, League Cup or the Conference League?

Personally I would prefer top 4 over any domestic trophy. I don’t like the fact that that’s the case, but let’s be honest both the FA Cup and League have been so devalued in recent years, that I just think top four is the greater prize and one which cetegorically offers the greater reward both in terms of money and prestige.

As for the Conference League, it’s just a joke of a competition, there’s just no other way of seeing it beyond a Johnstone’s Paint trophy for European teams. I’m not against the concept of it, but it should have been limited to teams from smaller leagues. I don’t know what will bring about more banter, us winning the thing or losing out on it.

Yea we need CL trophy to build on so then we can go and win trophies. Let's not bother about trophies now. Why win trophies now when you can build towards winning trophies later on.

Fans confuse me.

You can't win trophies now though. You haven't been able to since 2008! The closest you came was... the Champions League
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The history of our club has been winning cups. I know that's not true of recent era, but it's something we used to be proud of. Spurs fans should always aim for trophies/cups. This obsession with top 4 is nothing but corporate brainwash.

Makes you a big club though...which you desperately yearn for

Champions league if we actually had a plan to win the league...seeing as we don't and Levy is free-wheeling then Trophy each season every season.

If Paratici can change this attitude and strategy of the club then he will deserve a statue.

Under Poch I preferred us to be in the CL than winning some random League Cup. Being CL regulars and competing at the top of the PL was a new and enjoyable experience, and we had a core group of players capable of competing against Europe’s best.

As it stands now though, I would say a trophy. Firstly, because we just need one as a club. But secondly from a realism perspective, we are so far off CL it’s ridiculous. Nuno isn’t getting this team near Chelsea, Utd, Liverpool or City. The best we can hope for is a Europa League place, and I’d rather achieve that winning the Europa Conference than via league position.

We aren’t winning a domestic cup so forget that, at the end of any company the likes of City or Chelsea wheel out the big guns and the likes of us crumble. Remember last season when we thought we had a chance of the League Cup under Jose, half our fans talking like we’d won it already, forgetting various Prem teams waiting to force us into a cup final surrender job.

We are a crap team and Nuno is a crap manager, the sooner our fans lower their expectations and get used to that, the better.
