Nil hope your right mate, we are definitely more balanced now & have a bit of steel about us that we didn’t have previously. As for the title thread I don’t think it really matters how the season ends with fixtures, we all go to play each other twice & injuries etc can occur at any time. It could be seen as better to play the top teams later if your in contention for the title, depends how you look at it. I wish the FA Cup was still seen as a big trophy, I have a soft spot for it so hopefully the youngsters & fringe players get us close to the final & we can snag that.15th June 2019 at 4:23 am #42617

I made a promise, but catching a tube or two sounds good, only snowballs around here. Don’t do hate, it’s all love, except for things I don’t love… like rabbits and other things… 🙂15th June 2019 at 6:24 am #42618
Oz, I don’t know what the general consensus is mate on us. As biased as this may come across, I genuinely believe the impression that we are liked and received well by opposition fans.
Generally, it’s the nature of the beast for others to hate on us if we keep winning things regularly and the arrogance sets in, but we’re not like that, I’d like to think.
I dunno mate. It falls back to your point and you were right about the stranglehold and spending power in Man City. Not a great deal others can do except basically spend big like them, but that’s the most obvious formula and a quick fix or a ‘get out of jail’ people see. Real Madrid are a perfect example of this.
Whether this is right ‘ethically’, it gave City a clean sweep of the Domestic Trophies, which others may argue Spurs should have had one of those Cups because of the how well they progressed last season.
We are living proof of suffering losing all these finals. We struggled and learned the hard way. Finally something good happened to us and all it is in essence is just expressing some happiness and excitement whilst remaining humble at the same time.

For me, the Cup lost a bit of sparkle when they knocked down the old Wembly, still doesn’t “feel” right at the new one to me.15th June 2019 at 8:02 am #4262015th June 2019 at 8:38 am #42621
Does it really matter who plays who first or last, fixtures have pros and cons for every team. End of the day you have to play and try to beat whoever and whenever.15th June 2019 at 10:56 am #42622
Well said it Moos,now tell us,who do you support today:Chelsea or City?Lol

The magic of the cup started to diminish with the advent of televised league football, barring the odd international and the World Cup it was the only live game on the box. The whole day was dedicated to it. For me footy on the box has gone past saturation point. It’s a shame really as cup final day used to be something special….Pagan15th June 2019 at 1:09 pm #42624
It will matter to those teams that have back to back difficult matches and then find themselves struggling in the bottom half of the table.15th June 2019 at 5:07 pm #42625

Clubs have to win Cups not have them given to them because they had a good season and CL Final aside Spurs season v previous seasons was average at they lost 13 of their 38 PL games and got knocked out of both domestic Cups.
With regards to City’s spending providing it falls within the FFP rules nobody should have a problem with it.
Liverpool’s season last season was boosted by the £250m spent on 4 players not a criticism but that shows what can happen if you buy the right players.
Spurs if they buy the right players this Summer and retain their key players too are the most likely challengers to City and Liverpool next season imo.
If Clubs want to challenge for the top trophies they have to invest in their squads bar Leicester City which was a once in a lifetime achievement that’s the way it’s always been.15th June 2019 at 8:12 pm #42626
The sentiment towards Spurs was a supportive one in a sense that they deserve not to end the Season without a Trophy. To be fair to them in reality, they were the only team last season as genuine outsiders.
You’re right Nine to an extent that the amount of losses in the league will rightfully tell on the final table and there were a batch of losses which isn’t really presenting itself with high standards as such, though their journey in the Champions League was commendable.
To put it into an analogy, it’s a shame to be the Bridesmaid and I sense this is what and why Spurs supporters maybe may feel hard done by.
We ourselves play with a front 3, but in my view, any team wanting to challenge realistically for honours have to have at least 2 Top Strikers, out and out.
