Alasdair Gold says Arsenal journalists told him something exciting about Spurs this week

Alasdair Gold has revealed that his colleagues who cover Arsenal see similarities between the current Tottenham side and the Gunners side during the early days of Mikel Arteta.

There are certainly a lot of reasons to be optimistic as a Tottenham fan at the moment, given that the Lilywhites now boast of one of the youngest squads in the Premier League, with many of their young players nowhere near their ceiling.

Additionally, we have seen that Postecoglou’s sides only tend to click into top gear during his second season in charge, with this being a transitional campaign for the club.

At the start of the season, most Spurs fans would have bitten your hands off had you told them that the side would be three points behind fourth place with nine games left to go, particularly after Harry Kane’s departure.

However, the 3-0 defeat to Fulham has caused a bit of an overreaction among supporters, with many now perhaps questioning if this team is capable of challenging the best sides in the division over the next year or two.

Tottenham are on the way up

Addressing that topic, Gold has now said on his YouTube channel: “Funnily enough, I had some of the reporters at the game yesterday, there were some that normally report on Arsenal. And I was talking to them about the parallels between the Arsenal side under Arteta in its first few seasons and where Spurs are at under Postecoglou. And a lot of them could see the similarities.

“They could see games when there’s terrific football and they’re tearing people apart, and other games where they look a little bit lost and a little bit static and not entirely sure what to do against teams who set up well against them. And I thought that was quite interesting, just getting a different perspective.”

This project was never going to be smooth sailing all the way through and there were always going to have a few hiccups. In fact, one can argue that without this young Spurs side needs nights like the one at Craven Cottage to mature and learn from their mistakes.
