Following Tottenham has been an uphill battle for too long

A forlorn fan posted on social media that he wants Tottenham players and officials to be pallbearers at his funeral so they can let him down one last time.

That was after the abject capitulation at Bramall Lane which saw Spurs knocked out of the by a Sheffield United side weakened by illness. It was devastating for the 5,000 supporters who made the midweek trek to Yorkshire full of optimism after watching Tottenham climb into the Premier League top four by beating for the first time in nine games.

Dreams for us Spurs fans of ending the long drought without silverware stretching back to the 2008 League Cup were cruelly dashed by the inept performance and, barring a miracle, that is another year without a trophy. It’s the hope that hurts. But hey, we love our club and Newcastle’s Saturday lunchtime defeat at handed Spurs the opportunity to cement those top-four credentials by winning at Wolves.

Fair point? Or should premier league fans stop moaning?

Who didn’t fleetingly feel the adrenaline coursing through their veins as expectation once again reared its ugly head? The subsequent 1-0 loss was another hammer blow, another weekend ruined. You would rather be Sisyphus – that’s the guy in Greek mythology doomed to continually push that rock up a hill only for it to roll back down again – than follow the boys from N17.

Spurs were the butt of further jokes from people supporting a wide variety of clubs stranded in football’s backwaters who conveniently forget their team has never played in the Champions League let alone reached the final.

They would love to have a manager of the calibre of Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho or Antonio Conte in charge of their side but there’s the real rub.

Three of the finest coaches in the business have been left frustrated by a lack of proper investment with chairman Daniel Levy and the board spending enough to take Spurs to the brink of success but not enough to go the final yard and win trophies.

Conte may well leave in the summer when his contract expires and the N17 circus, not F1 karting or Beyonce concerts, will be the biggest show in town once more.

Ah well, at least we’ll smash Nottingham Forest next Saturday. Possibly.
