The future is bright

9

However Spurs end this season, whether it be on a high by finishing in the top 4, or on a low by narrowly missing out on the elite Europe spots, one thing can be said for certain. Tottenham Hotspur are going places.

We have a young, technical and passionate manager, with a dedicated circle of supporting staff and those working behind the scenes to ensure that Spurs have the best possible chance of achieving success. Andre Villas-Boas is 35; in his first season with Spurs he has radically changed the system and style of play, yet continued the consistency around the top 4 position. He is already an excellent manager, both tactically and personally, yet admittedly has a lot to learn. He could follow the example of Ferguson, Gradi or Wenger, and stay at our club for years upon years to come: at least 30 years of management is still to come from the little Portuguese ‘ginger ninja’.

The core of the Spurs team is solid, improving, talented, and youthful. Players such as the 25-year-old Jan Vertonghen, the 26 year old Hugo Lloris, the 24 year old Sandro and the 25 year old Mousa Dembele will form the backbone of this Spurs team for many years to come. In attack, we have the young Gareth Bale, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Lewis Holtby, who are always improving, whilst future stars such as Tom Carroll and Shaq Coulthirst are emerging, almost ready to break into the first team. Our team now could be Lloris-Walker-Vertonghen-Kaboul-Rose-Dembele-Sandro-Sigurdsson-Holtby-Lennon-Bale, and our team in 5 years could be Lloris-Walker-Vertonghen-Kaboul-Rose-Dembele-Sandro-Sigurdsson-Holtby-Lennon-Bale. Imagine how much those 11 players will improve our the next 5 years. Our potential seems never-ending.

Off the pitch, our future seems similarly incredible. We are in advanced planning to build a 56,000 seater stadium – where the atmosphere will be unimaginable – and we have a chairman who loves the club, desperately striving to meet the pivotal balance between balancing the books and improving in the league. We have a dedicated and growing fan-base, who love the club and appreciate the direction that it is going in.

Our potential seems to have no bounds. On and off the pitch, we are improving as a strong, united and learning unit, who are determined to achieve greatness.
The future is bright. The future is Lilywhite.

  1. We do have the makings of something special. However, if we don't make champions league football, then we cannot afford to sign top quality players and we also run the risk of losing top quality like Bale. It is a catch 22! We need to qualify to have a brighter future.

  2. we've only got in the chumps league once, and it hasn't stopped us signing Lloris, Vertonghen, Dembele, Sandro, Sigurdsson or Holtby. Equally, being in the competition hasn't stopped Arse's best players leaving.__It would be heartbreaking to miss out again but it's not the end of the world by a long way, we are still looking to have a good future.__As for europa league, i hope we go for it. i'd love a trophy more than top 4 but they are not mutually exclusive. AVB stated at the start he had to condition the squad to get used to 2 games a week. What is the point of qualifying for the CL if we then throw away our league form in order to compete or we throw away our chances of progressing in order to finish top 4 again?__Now, let's do this thing… Come on you Spurs!

    It would be heartbreaking to miss out again but it's not the end of the world by a long way, we are still looking to have a good future.

    As for europa league, i hope we go for it. i'd love a trophy more than top 4 but they are not mutually exclusive.

    Now, let's do this thing… Come on you Spurs!

  4. If you are a top quality side, then you can cope with finishing well in the domestic league and the European competition. When Man Utd did the treble, they didnt complain of fatigue!

  5. some great points. champions league is overrated. when we were in it there was no influx of world class players – only van der vaart and as rightly stated we have still signed top quality emerging talent without being in champions league.
    as for Dom's point about top quality sides and man u etc. they have far greater resources and as such a bigger squad than we do. Hopefully AVB has done enough no matter where we finish to be given the backing to keep tapping the global market of emerging talent and really produce a champions league team
    i was worried at the start of the season with AVB and whilst there are some questions unanswered, just to still be in there fighting for a champions league place is great considering this was always gonna be a transitional season.
    Go for the europa league trophy! COYS

  6. nice read, i think this is an exciting time to be a spurs fan. Having seen this as a season of transition as we lost the spine of our team – King, Modric, VdV – i think winning the Europa League or making it in to the Champions League would be an amazing achievement given the number of changes we've had.

  7. Nice, it's good to see there's still positivity despite our recent troubles.

    After years in the doldrums even the most negative fan must see that we are heading in the right direction. Harry led the way and achieved great short-term success, now we look like we can build on that with something more long-term.

    With FFP coming in (hopefully) we should be in a stronger position very soon. Furthermore, if the CL is expanded then we can look to cement our place amongst the elite.

    It will be disappointing if we blow 4th, but it won't be the end of the world. It's still in our hands and there will be surprises (look at Man C last year)…..all to play for!
