Tottenham Hotspur – No Wembley curse after all

Share This Post

Tottenham had another quality top-four campaign. The season started without a whole lot of hope for Spurs and their fans as they faced the prospect of 38 so called away games. As we all know, the North London side became the West London side for one season only as Wembley Stadium became their temporary home.

Wembley Curse

The season at Wembley didn’t start particularly well as they didn’t manage to record a home victory in the league until mid-October. For a while, their top scorer at ‘home’ was own goals as they struggled to get past teams like Swansea and Burnley.

The curse started to lift in October when Spurs managed to eek past Bournemouth before tearing apart a lack-lustre Liverpool side a week later. The curse also didn’t seem to apply to the Champions League either as Spurs cruised past elite opponents in Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.

As the season went on, Spurs managed to maintain their position in the top four and despite some late challenges from Chelsea, they hung on to ensure Champions League football will be played at their new home next season.

Unfortunately, they fell short of their targets in the Champions League and FA Cup as that all important piece of silverware continues to elude them. They surrendered a commanding position in the Champions League knock out rounds to Italian giants Juventus. As well as that, their semi-final FA CupĀ loss to Manchester United was a bitter pill to swallow. Despite the lack of silverware, it was a good season for Spurs in unfamiliar surroundings.

Tottenham Player of the Season

Jan Vertonghen – Club player of the season this year was none other than the veteran Belgian defender. Vertonghen has been outstanding at the back all season long and has managed to avoid making many mistakes.

Although, it is hard to overlook a guy who scored 29 goals in Harry Kane and a creative genius in Christian Eriksen but Vertonghen’s impact on the squad is a big reason why they boast the third best defensive record in the league.

Next SeasonĀ 

The new White Hart Lane is still under construction but it will be ready in time for Spurs to start a new campaign their next term. The future of Mauricio Pochettino is still up in the air as rumours circulate in the media about his whereabouts for next season as Chelsea reportedly sniff around the Argentine.

In a similar vein, we of course aren’t 100% sure of whether or not Spurs’ big hitters will still be at the club. Although, if I was a Spurs fan, I wouldn’t worry about that too much. However, if next season once again yields no trophies, we could see players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli get itchy feet.
