Why the Downer on Tottenham?

August 13, 2010 12:41pm CST
Everywhere I look here in England journalists and pundits are writing off Tottenham's chances of finishing in the top four for a second season. Is the challange of competing in Europe going to change Spurs that much? Last season it was being pointed out that only Chelsea and Tottenham have two established players in each position, and the squad is stronger now. What do you think?

The Europe challenged couple with the League and FA Cup will definitely take a toll on the players. Tottenham is new to the challenge and the players might find it hard to get the necessary energy to meet the demands.

Spurs have a really big squad and all the games might keep players like Keane, Bentley and Kranjcar happy. The CL should be a good thing!

Actually this is probably going to be the defining season for Tottenham. Whether their last year's top 4 finish was a flash in the pan or well deserved will depend on how they fare this season. Also they have the additional load of playing in the Champions League this year, so they will need to cope with more work rate this season. Knowing Harry he would have something up his sleeve to ensure that the things can be managed. Cheers! Ram

Lets hope so, last night was terrible. Worst performance by an English team in any incarnation of the European Cup or qualifiers.
