The Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are a bit embarrassed about this…
You’ve got to feel sorry for Tottenham Hotspur. After impressing for the entirety of last season, a stumble at the death effectively ended the Lilywhites’ chance at Premier League glory.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men were near unstoppable all season long, but a few poor results towards the end of the campaign allowed Leicester City to run away with it.
Perhaps the most significant game was their clash against Chelsea, in which a disappointing Hiddink-led side managed to hold on to a 2-2 draw against Tottenham – effectively ending their title charge. Now, for the first time, Spurs defender Danny Rose has revealed the emotional impact of the game on the Lilywhites.
Despite trying to put a positive spin on this, you can tell that Rose and his teammates really struggled as a result of the game. They were so close to the title, but couldn’t quite reach the brass ring – much to the amusement of the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Nonetheless, Tottenham are looking good again this season – and look well on the way another successful campaign under Mauricio Pochettino.
This weekend, however, will prove to be a real test of strength for Spurs – as they look to get revenge on Chelsea for the heartbreak that the Blues caused them last season.
Our landlord thinks that it will be tough, but he is backing Spurs for a win…
