With the Euros coming to an end, many English Spurs fans were heartbroken due to the penalty disaster.
Therefore, the Tottenham faithful will be turning towards the upcoming season, once again looking for hope.
However, is there anything to look forward to this season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?
Last season was nothing short of a disaster for Spurs, with a mediocre 7th place being the end result. Jose Mourinho was sacked after arguably his worst season in management and Spurs yet again failed to win silverware despite reaching a final.
This season, Nuno Espirito Santo has walked through the door, with some fans classing it as an underwhelming appointment.
Spurs have gone from one of the best managers in world football with Pochettino to Nuno within two years. This is nothing short of embarrassing, which makes me think this season won’t be one to remember.
However, the manager isn’t the only reason that I think we will have a poor season. Within N17, the standard of players is continuing to decrease, with the likes of Winks and Sissoko somehow still earning a wage in North London.
Obviously, there is a possibility that the deadwood will be sold, however, the likelihood of Levy doing this is slim.
Recently, I have described Levy as a ‘bad’ chairman. The fiasco with the Super League, lack of clarity with the fans and the poor managerial decisions have left a sour taste amongst some Spurs fans. Therefore, there is zero chance that I have any belief in Levy.
Any honest and realistic Spurs fan will not expect Levy to spend big and rebuild this summer. It’s not the man he is and, although we may hate it, we must be realistic.
However, if a rebuild does not even begin, then there is no way Levy can continue as chairman. Levy must spend, he must rebuild, but I don’t think this will happen, therefore I don’t think we will succeed.
The combination of an underwhelming manager and a weakening squad leaves little enthusiasm for a positive Spurs season.
Meanwhile, our inclusion in the UEFA European Conference League may make our performance within the Premier league worse, travelling to some of the most random European destinations will most definitely fatigue the players on a Thursday night.
However, it isn’t all doom and gloom within N17. Even though the Conference League, has some negatives, our inclusion does give us a serious possibility of a trophy. We are arguably the best team in the competition, so we should aim for the win.
Although, it is almost written in the stars for Jose Mourinho’s Roma to beat us in the final. It would be typical Spurs, so be prepared for the inevitable.
In conclusion, I don’t believe there is much hope for Spurs this season.
Obviously, Nuno and the players might surprise me, but I’m already expecting the worse.
The return of fans will definitely boost the players, so if we all get behind them, maybe something incredible could happen…?
