Finishing in the UEFA Europa Conference League spot last season was a new low for Tottenham and it also showed how far they have fallen as a club.
The Lilywhites reached the final of the Champions League in 2019 and had been building their reputation slowly before getting there.
Most fans had expected that they would kick on from there and become one of England’s top clubs.
But they failed to recover from the heartbreak of losing the final to Liverpool and a poor start to the 2019/2020 season cost Mauricio Pochettino his job.
Spurs replaced him with Jose Mourinho, who could only get them a Europa League finish at the end of that season.
His second season was poor and they sacked him with Spurs finishing the campaign 7th on the league table.
They will look to win the first ever Europa Conference League, but even that tournament is far from a guarantee of success.
The club posted a video of them in a Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund in 2017 and it drew reactions from their fans. Here are some of them:
Hey, thanks for reminding me how far we’ve fallen. I’d almost forgotten— Upside Down Erik (@UpsideDownErik) September 14, 2021
Might as well have been 20 years ago. ENIC & Levy had their chance, they chose the money…..— Dan (@ElCapitain82) September 13, 2021
The good old days 😭— Charlotte (@Charpercy84) September 13, 2021
i cannot get over how negative we are now. Honestly now other than united away i cannot remember the last away game that we actually went after a team, pressed them, dominated the ball and attacked start to finish. This has to be the plan from levy and nuno— James Smith (@JamesSm11221027) September 13, 2021
Wonderful, another reminder of the fantastic side that fell apart and stagnated led by a visionary young manager that the chairman and board decided not to fully back in the transfer market. Try reading the room Admin. #Levyout #ENICOut— Ducati Yido 🇮🇱 🇬🇧🏴#THFC ⚽️ (@Rog_THFC) September 13, 2021
