Despite coming close to winning major pieces of silverware, including the Premier League title and the Champions League in the last five years, Spurs have failed to secure a trophy.
While some may be tempted to look at the last five seasons as a failure due to the lack of trophies, the reality is that Spurs have made considerable progress both on and off the pitch.
The club established themselves as Champions League regulars under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino and always competed near the top end of the Premier League table.
They managed to sustain a high level of performance every year despite the club having to tear White Hart Lane down and build a new stadium, costing the best part of £1 billion.
Sunday World journalist Kevin Palmer has examined Premier League clubs’ net spend over the last five years (via transfermarkt.com) and he found that Spurs, along with Liverpool had spent just a fraction of what some of their other top-six rivals have.
After Liverpool’s owners decided not to spend the money to get Timo Werner, I’ve done a piece in @sundayworld looking at net spend transfer over the last five years.

The net spend figures do not even tell the whole story as they do not include clubs’ wage bills and things like agent fees. Putting all this together, one will find that our investment in the squad has been much lower than even Liverpool’s, which once again shows how brilliant a job Pochettino did at Spurs.
