Ahead of the north London derby this weekend, I thought I’d take a look at some of the things I dislike most about Tottenham.
This could have been a very long list, so I restricted it otherwise I’d still have been typing at kick-off.
Let’s start with the one I hate the most at present:
Despite not finishing above Arsenal for two decades until Arsenal were so bad they had to sack their most successful ever manager, every time Spurs have a good run in the league we have to listen to discussions about how the power is shifting/has shifted in north London.
Even though they managed to finish above Arsenal twice (twice!), that still doesn’t represent anything like a powershift. Totenham haven’t even managed to win a trophy during this infamous ‘shift’ while Arsenal won three.
Come back when Spurs have won another 11 league titles, one of which with an unbeaten season, and finished above Arsenal for 20 years in a row.
Then we’ll talk.
