It was a difficult end to the season for Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino, as Spurs missed out on the opportunity of a memorable Premier League title, eventually slipping to third and behind Arsenal once again for the 20th consecutive season.
Things seemed to have gone from bad to worse for the English boys at White Hart Lane too, as Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Harry Kane – who were all picked in Roy Hodgson’s 23 man England squad for Euro 2016 – were eliminated in humiliating circumstances, losing to the tournament’s surprise package Iceland 2-1.
What could have been the most memorable season in the club’s history ultimately ended as one for forget on all fronts, and boosting morale for the whole squad and of course the young Englishman – all of whom failed to turn up in France at all – will certainly be a huge task for Argentine Pochettino in the coming months.
However, the Lilywhites are still expected to be one of those who challenge for the Premier League title next season, with many putting their late season collapse down to a lack of experience from what was a young and fresh-faced squad.
The signing of Victor Wanyama from Southampton has opened Spurs business in the transfer market, and with the Euro’s drawing to a close over the next few weeks, expect their to be plenty more business at the Lane before the season begins.
Our Spurs fans at the Tavern think they can win the League next season if they have this squad. Do you agree?
