We only needed a point last Sunday to secure second spot, as we took on Newcastle at St James’ Park. However, Pochettino’s men went off the boil and were stunned by the Toon as they thrashed us 5-1, meaning yet another St Totteringham’s day for all involved with Spurs. However, we did finish in a highly impressive third place wich was our highest finish in many years and Mauricio Pochettino’s lads in doing so have qualified for the group stages of next seasons UEFA champions league, a feat which at the start of season was barely imaginable from fans, journalists and pundits. No one can deny that what Pochettino and his players have achieved over the course of the season, was a spectacular achievement. The Argentine manager implemented the perfect style of play to suit Spurs’s game, he once again made the players a remarkably fit side, and most importantly he got us winning big matches and with a great flourish. Although, undoubtedly some will be left wondering how we didn’t catch Leicester in February and how we didn’t take our chance in one of the most open title races in a generation.
However, the vast majority of Spurs fans are extremely proud of what their club has achieved and they know Pochettino’s plan will become brighter and greater as the seasons progress. Let’s not forget, we played some remarkable matches this season, they done the double over Manchester city, they thrashed Manchester United, Stoke and West Ham, and remained unbeaten against arch rivals Arsenal and Chelsea in the league. We also finished the league campaign with the fewest goals conceded which was a remarkable achievement considering our poor defensive record the previous season. However, in my eyes one of the greatest things I saw this season were the exceptional team performances from our players and it didn’t go unnoticed, as Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose were all named in the PFA team of the season. Harry Kane also finished the season as the top scorer in the league and the Spurs star attained the golden boot for his triumphs. Furthermore, all of our players showed pride, quality, hard work and an unquestionable passion for the club in which they play for.
Ultimately and imperatively, we must forget of the disappointing blip at the end of the season and we should instead remind ourselves of the glorious football that has been shown this season from our club. Our wonderful and youthful side will continue to grow next season and in doing so will become an even greater force to reckon with, both domestically and in European competition. The new season cannot come quickly enough for myself, for I believe it will be a great and memorable occasion! Thank you Spurs for a fantastically memorable season and we’ll see you again next season! COYS⚽️
