We as Spurs fan always expect quite a lot of our team and this season you could say we’ve even raised the bar on expectations based on the sum of money spent in the squad. Have we over looked the fact that we are still Spurs and not to dwell on the past but the result against West Ham? It doesn’t really do our squad justice. We are a much better squad than what we saw last weekend and I believe we will continue to be disappointed as the season goes on. We have this uncanny ability to lose to teams we shouldn’t and that really drives me up the wall. It’s as if our players become complacent and forget how competitive the Premier League really is.
I hate to say it but I have doubts about our ability to qualify for the Champions League this season yet alone the title itself, Our squad is amazing yet they are still new to each other, once they all have a season together I will be more confident along with hopefully some more signings in January. Also Arsenal, Chelsea and both Manchester’s have strengthen their teams significantly, maybe with not as many signings but I think that will help them in the long run, as they all already have a squad of players who know how to work with each other, and a new player here and there will pick it up very quickly.
There is no doubt we have created a force for the future with our signings and I believe that has been promised to most of the new guys. This season though, our work is cut out for us, and as it is still early its hard to predict, yet my spidey-sense says that our inability to put down less impressive sides could prove decisive. If we can only establish a 1 or 2 goal advantage over teams lower than us and then give it up to concede a draw or loss, how can we hope to beat the top dogs? I hope I am wrong and this next game at Aston Villa could sum up exactly what I’m saying or prove me wrong, I hope it’s the latter.
