“Thanks for reminding me how far we’ve fallen” These Tottenham fans not impressed with Champions League reminder
By Bruce Grove -

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:

Playing against the very best teams *pick your favourite* makes up for not winning any pots.
To be fair we should have won a couple under Poch but the CL buzz tempers all that.
Well Mr Byrite those days were long ago so I suggest you unlock the purse in January and get some proper players in (creative midfielder anyone?)

Those certainly were the good old days.
I loved watching Spurs under Poch and my how things have changed.
I can still see Daniel Levy crowing in front of the Amazon cameras when he brought in Mourinho. The cat had finally got the cream but unfortunately it left a very sour taste in his mouth.
The reality that Levy must face is that we cannot operate in the economic sphere he has become accustomed to without Champions League football. The idea that we keep Kane, replace players with Premier League rookies and keep our fingers crossed that Nuno can do a “Poch” is fanciful.
Kane could of got a deck chair out, started reading the paper at Selhurst Park on Saturday and nobody would of noticed the difference.
I know the international break has hurt us but.. in my personal opinion this is the worst squad we have had in fair few years.
Too many players that either can’t play or simply don’t want to play for us.

Like i’ve said on here before, i like Nuno and i wish him all the best. He has one of the hardest jobs in the league…. let’s hope he can keep it beyond Christmas.

Make no mistake Levy was cutting corners in getting Mourinho in as he admitted on the Amazon show he did admit only time will tell if it is a mistake ( and it clearly was )

Mourinho told Levy he would bring silverware in with some tweaks to the squad which just did not happen, simple as that

There`s an old saying you do not know what you have had until it is gone ( Poch ) he worked miracles with a load of 5hite

A load of shite? Lloris is a more than decent goalkeeper and probably the best we’ve had since Ray Clemence. Toby and Vertonghen were a genuinely good centre half pairing and for a period during Poch’s reign, Walker and Rose were two of the best backs in the division. Dembele was a highly rated midfielder; listen to what his team mates at Spurs and in the Belgian side had to say about him. Kane and Son are top class strikers who would get a game in most if not all top flight English clubs and at least for a couple of seasons, Ericksen was top class. Poch was hardly working miracles with a load of 5hite.

Yep we definately over achieved under Poch and now our true squad is showing itself. We are very thin when injuries/isolating kicks in. No disrespect to Palace but we should be winning those games, guarantee the so called top six sides go there and all pick up 3 points. It’s like Leeds last season, we were the only top six side scalp they got! We dropped from 1st to 7th I know it’s only 1 point, but I said to Tappaspur a few weeks back that I couldn’t see us being top four by the end of October. God I hope I’m wrong!!

Who’s to say Mourinho wouldn’t have won us the Carrierbag cup as promised,had he not been bladdered a week before.He certainly knows how to win one-off games.

But we’ll never know of course.
