Have a great summer one and all, see you for the Euros!
Surely this must be up there with the biggest Spurs f**k ups ever? Finishing below that clueless Arsenal team of ours managed by a clueless manager who's well past his sell by date is an utter disgrace. That Spurs team is easily the best in the league in my opinion, you guys should have walked the PL. Big big chance missed.
The hashtag Legend on the wind up again
Sup homeboy. Long time no speak!
Frankly 3rd is probably about right - we drew too many games this season and failed to learn the art of seeing out victories from winning positions. As 'bad' as Arsenal have been, still have had that individual quality to dig them out of games whereas for us our poor squad depth has been exposed big time. Because where I'm sat it appears to have been a 'perfect' storm of:
1) Pochettino's intense style finally taking it's toll on the (limited sized squad of) players into the last 4-5 games
2) Losing Alli and Dembele to stupid disciplinary discretions and Mason/Son failing to provide adequate cover crucially when needed
3) The mental toll of having to pick themselves up after being knocked out of title contention, particularly in the manner of the way it occurred (at home to West Brom, followed by THAT game against Chelsea).
The reality is probably that we indeed live in a Matrix where there's a hardcoded algorithm developed by our Machine Overlords that demands Spurs continuously bottle it and finish below Arsenal in order to contribute to the appearance of stability in an otherwise instable and chaotic Universe. This way we humans will never wake up and they can continue to harvest our bodies for energy whilst our conscious minds remain distracted.
As for the hashtag legend: It's the least I expected. Podolski and Wilshere will follow suit pretty soon. They are a great reminder of the old adage that the emptiest vessels make the most noise. It'd sting more if they hadn't faded into irrelevance and obscurity as players. Now it's too easy to just laugh at their attempts for recognition, particularly given the vast majority of the Spurs players will going to the Euros whilst they sit at home, forlorn and unloved. Sadface.
