The humiliation is complete – Spurs qualify for the European Conference League
By Bruce Grove -

At least this horrendous season is over with and we can no longer be subjected to any more humiliation.

Tottenham beat Leicester City, finished seventh, one spot above Arsenal and that means that we are now going to be forced to partake in the joke European Conference League.

The fact that we have ended this season with a 29-year-old novice in charge of team matters sums up perfectly where we are at right now.

The sad thing is and there is no glossing over it, there is very little sign that things will be any better next season, I mean, even our best player has had enough.

How Spurs managed to find themselves top earlier in the season will be one of the great questions of the ages because I will be honest, I have no clue.

It is hard to pick out any positives from this season, even the players that started off well like Reguilon and Hojbjerg have faded into obscurity and unlike a few of our rivals, there are no great youngsters coming through for next season, though Oliver Skipp could be special.

Tottenham is in a right mess at this moment in time but at least we managed to finish above that lot down the road and so we will not be subjected to months of banter from them, though we are hardly in a position to banter anyone ourselves.

I’m not so sure about the lack of banter from the Arsenal fans. If I was a gooner I might just be congratulating Spurs on their great achievement in reaching the conference!

Strange game. Thought we actually played well for a change. Probably the best game of the season from Winks and Doherty. For me, Sanchez did a lot more good than bad- the second pen was not a pen. Just wish the lads gave this much effort the whole year.

Have to disagree regarding “at least we managed to finish above that lot down the road and so we will not be subjected to months of banter from them”.

I think in a battle between finishing in the Midtable League Trophy & finishing above a N Lundun rival, finishing in the MLT is the more demeaning.

I’d swap positions in a heartbeat.

It’s a meaningless victory. Both clubs are husks, essence and soul sold down the river by merchants who care nothing for the football. Unrecognizable corporate emptiness.

I am ok with us getting in the ECL. We can recruit better players than Arse now and I don’t have all my friends giving me crap all summer.

That competition, if we handle it correctly, should be a great way to get our young, promising reserve players more experience. We know we have hired the correct manager if none of our top squad players see a minute on the pitch in that competition.

The best think Winks did was take out Iheanaco ,& pick up a yellow card. The down side of winning is Levy thinking a better manager & we could finish top 4…. I was hoping we’d lose today for that very reason…

Can’t believe some still regard it as successful to finish above the sh*te down the road. That’s not the winning mentality Poch and Mourinho had in mind. This has been a disastrous season. Don’t forget it.

We will be irrelevant until we win the big prizes. There is no trophy for finishing above Woolwich unless it’s when they’re second in the league is there? Trying to take small, pointless and frankly pathetic positives from a totally sh*t season is why we are where we are. We’ve all been conditioned by ENIC’s lack of ambition and ability. I suppose they’ll put a picture of the 2020-21 league table in the trophy cabinet and say it’s a success because a crap Arsenal side finished below us.

To be honest, I would only really care that much if we finish above them if they finished 2nd. Which of us is 7th or 8th doesn’t matter a jot to me.

the one aim today was not to finish 7th and we can’t even do that

we look like dopes against a side weaker than Leicester (Leeds)…and then turn up against Leicester when all hope is gone and if we win we kneecap next season with an interrupted pre season and a load on ‘no win’ games (you win it means nothing…it’s the conference, you lose..you lost in the conference, you’re a joke side)

amazing

Only reasons we won were due to Rogers trying to protect a lead, Bale providing a bit of quality in the final 3rd & Leceister having to win… if that game was say 2-3 weeks back we would of folded like a deck of cards.

We are at rock bottom now and still beating Arsenal, we need a new manager to manage a good sqaud that needs refreshing. We have a stadium that can back some ambition. No we can’t spend money like Man city etc but we can add quality. Mason did his best and we are rid of the insipid special one.

This constant doom and gloom is embarrassing, momentum takes time as does proper coaching , things won’t get fixed overnight but now is the time to get behind the team not hide behind this constant whining monologue.

Do you ever have anything good to say? You just expect everything to be right all the time? This is why we Spurs fans have such a rep, we are not entitled to anything . Get behind the team somewhere about something , you are a dark cloud of negatively.

We all know the season was awful but to dig something out last day shows there is still the remanents of a team in there despite Mourinho. I will enjoy another season of being superior to Arsenal despite how bad we were . Is that success no, but it’s better than nothing , at half time we had nothing.

Now it’s a long journey, a new manager, a rebuild and it will take time and patience. Let’s not be fickle fans feel we are entitled, remember how far we have come

COYS

How far we have come?
Prior to Enic we still came top 4 but we also won stuff mainly F.A cups .
Someone recently put up our honours and league standings over the decades and this is currently a lean spell .
So after all we have been through we fooked it so must start again from god dam scratch .
No manager ,losing our best players and more debt than anyone.
Its ok though because if we fluke it multiple times like finding Poch and and finding Kane almost by accident and chucking him in as we had nothing else working.

Its ok though we will get Christian Gross turn up with a 4 pence budget a lazy arsed squad that cant be sold and have to kick off a season in July for a tournament that no one wants to be in .
As someone else has put win it your laughed at lose it your laughed at even more.
Cant wait mate .

I agree, a lot of titles could be described as a fluke. It all depends on you having certain players playing a certain way at a certain time, while the teams around you are not having certain players playing in a certain way at that certain time. Leicester. Nuff said.
That season we had those players in that condition, and bar Leicester having that fluke season, which they utterly deserved, we would have been the fluke.
But rather than recognise how close that near-miss was, and improve that squad to go that step higher and actually win, Levy and ENIC opted to not invest in the team for 18 months and focus on a shopping centre instead.
