Are Tottenham Still a top four side?

By Harry Hotspur -

This season has been an unkind one so far for Spurs. The arrival of the serial winner Antonio Conte really ought to have rubber-stamped the owner’s resolve to take the club on a path of greater certainty, but instead, we have another coach who after making his appraisals, is left staring at the same selection of players that failed to ensure continued employment for the last three men in the North London side’s hot seat. With the club’s form over recent weeks resembling that of a side fighting a relegation battle, serious questions need to be asked about the short to medium-term future of the club.

Many fans routinely plot their sportsbook activity using https://bigwinwall.com/reviews/ and a shift in a club’s consistency is a major issue, Tottenham’s recent match against Manchester City was appalling from any Lilywhite-based perspective. Going two goals ahead, to then concede five smacks of an existential crisis. Maybe that’s the size of the problem.

Fabio Paratici has been busted and banned from trading in Italy for the sort of financial irregularities which might well carry a prison sentence in any other walk of life. The Italian is more than likely to also be similarly banned from operating in the UK for at least the next couple of years, and so it remains uncertain if THFC will even retain its services, were that to be enforced.

Heung Min-Son too has been unrecognisably poor this campaign, and there will be those keen to cite the fact that playing with a mask is not for everyone, but the South Korean’s form was just as bad prior to the injury. From Golden Boot winner to a player who can only score against Premier League sides that are in free-fall, is again, deeply concerning.

Elsewhere, Tottenham invested a lot of money in Richarlison, who has a modest track record for scoring domestically for anyone in England. For Spurs, he has yet to find the net even once. Sure, there’s plenty of niggling and gamesmanship, but nothing of any substance whatsoever. Some fans protested at Hotspur Way this week.

Of course, the darkest shadow has to be the demeanour of Conte himself in his press conferences, where the Italian most recently felt that the club, the medical staff, and his Director of Football ought to field questions from the press. This was less about the coach’s limited understanding, and more a case one felt, of sharing the burden of the blame with those involved in tying his hands.

Are Spurs still a top-four side? Unless there is some radical rethinking at board level, they may not even be a Premier League side for much longer.
