Spurs and Arsenal fans here in their respective Taverns ponder the possibility of bringing a trophy home to London this season.
The Gunners and Spurs have always had one of the most hotly contested rivalries in English football, dating back to the days when they used to battle it out at Highbury and, not so historically, the old White Hart Lane.
It’s fair to say that Arsenal in the past have normally dominated proceedings dating back to their dominance with greats such as Patrick Viera and Thierry Henry in the unbeaten season. However, in recent times as hard as it may be to admit for Gunners fans, the roles have been reversed as Mauricio Pochettino and his Spurs now look be the predator out the two.
Many people embark upon a successful season as being one that brings trophy triumphs, but some believe it can be down to league position or a new culture and thinking that’s been enforced. For both these clubs, previous years has seen them both land at opposite ends of the spectrum.
Arsenal have certainly enjoyed the limelight when it comes to trophies during Pochettino’s reign, as they conjure up an impressive 3 FA Cups. Spurs on the other hand, haven’t managed to produce a title under the Argentinian so far. Equally, if you’re a fan who views success in the form of trophies then you’re going to call upon Wenger as the more potent out of the two.
However, the whole structure of the club has changed under Pochettino, lending itself to a set-up able to deliver long-term success.
So, we’re asking Tottenham fans, would you swap Wenger’s 3 FA Cups since Pochettino took over for the impact the Argentine has had on your club?
