This season has been a tough one for Tottenham fans. The Lilywhites have had some jubilant highs and then some rock-bottom lows, and the last few weeks in the Premier League have certainly been low. In their last four Premier League games, they’ve lost three and drawn one, falling out of the title race and into a battle for top four.
– Just a few weeks ago, @SpursOfficial were genuine title contenders…
Now, they face a fight to qualify for next season’s @ChampionsLeague!
What’s going on at Tottenham?
— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) 27 March 2019
The question that Sky Sports have put out on Twitter is ‘what’s going on at Tottenham?’ and the Lilywhites have themselves have been on-hand to try and answer that. It is really easy to get drawn into the negatives, yet you cannot ignore all the good going on in North London. Mauricio Pochettino is working magic on a budget and has shown that you don’t need signings to be a success, even if the fans are desperate.
This summer will certainly be make or break, and what happens when the window opens could depend on the way the last eight games go. Poch has worked wonders, but the fact that his side have had horrendous injury woes, the shortest recovery time from the world cup and no signings set them up against it, and the fact that they’re still sitting pretty in 3rd regardless of all of that just shows what an incredible job the Argentine has done.
You can read the Lilywhites’ explanations for the season here:
truth is poch is making this team overachive so much that people forget we didn't spend 1.5 billion pounds on our player, bought nothing for two windows and played away from home every game. just shows what a good job he's doing.

Zero spending and too many big injuries is what happened.

We were never a title contender, just over achieving and now exactly were we should be

Lack of depth relying on the same players tiredness nibs will take its toll in the end

We have played every game away from home and spent £0….clear officiating bias towards liverpoo and against spurs,along with media bias against https://t.co/tI2jkTg7to have touted our manager and best players to rival clubs to unsettle us (Neville).shameful

The Lilywhites are all quietly pleased with their side and how far they’ve come and won’t start backtracking after a few weeks of bad form.
