So close, but yet so far for Tottenham Hotspur
The 2016/17 Premier League campaign was one of genuine positivity and hope for the White Hart Lane faithful. Spurs finished the current season entirely unbeaten at home of course, and big things are subsequently expected of Tottenham once their brand new stadium is fully operational and ready to serve the North London faithful.
Yet after falling at the last hurdle once again among the most recent Premier League title race, Spurs seemingly have it all to prove next season. This time it was Chelsea who stole the plaudits when all was finally said and done, despite the constant pressure applied by Tottenham among the upper echelons of the English top-flight.

Mauricio Pochettino has nonetheless sounded himself out as one of the strongest managers in world football after improving Tottenham’s overall title chances and all-round status across the continent. Spurs have failed dramatically under Pochettino when it comes to plying their trade in Europe, but such an eventuality may indeed fail to deter any elite European powerhouses looking for a new main man in the dug-out next season.
That said, Pochettino arguably has every reason to stay put with his current employers. Although Tottenham have somewhat overtaken their North London neighbours in regard to “bottling” their most serious title hopes right when it seemingly matters most, this is a young team with bags of potential to improve even further. It really is as simple as that.
Each of Harry Kane, Danny Rose and Dele Alli provide the Three Lions national setup with some renewed fortunes looking forward to the 2018 World Cup, and as for the likes of Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld – well, any top-flight manager would simply love to call this genuinely impressive set of players their own.
Pochettino has therefore crafted a really exciting side down at White Hart Lane in recent seasons, a team the Tottenham faithful should be immensely proud of – even if they are yet to truly claim the Premier League title as their own.
Those who cast Spurs aside as nothing but a failure in light of their recent inability to prove their title-winning worth over the course of an entire season, must look at Pochettino’s successes with greater perspective, and greater scope for what the future could very soon offer this plucky Tottenham Hotspur outfit. Perhaps it’s time to watch this space as they say…
