Will it be a failure if Tottenham Hotspur miss out on a top-four finish in Premier League?

Even if Tottenham Hotspur miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, the fans will have much to rejoice.

Tottenham Hotspur are challenging for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, but they could well end up fifth or even sixth.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently seventh in the league table with 53 points from 30 matches, six points behind Manchester United, who are fourth.

With Southampton and Liverpool above them in the standings, there is a distinct possibility that Spurs may not finish in the top four.

For a club as ambitious as Tottenham, it will be a huge upset if once again they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

However, would failure to make it into the top four of the Premier League make the 2014-15 season a ‘failure’?

From one perspective, yes. If Tottenham are unable to make it into the top four, then they will end the season with nothing to show.

Spurs lost the League Cup final to Chelsea at London's Wembley Stadium and could not get past the round of 32 in the Europa League.

What was promising to be a successful season is now threatening to fizzle out.

However, the Spurs fans have much to rejoice even if Tottenham do not qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The rise of star striker Harry Kane is certainly the story of the 2014-15 Premier League campaign.

The youngster has been arguably the best young player in the English top flight this season and has recently been capped by England.

The progress of young midfielders Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason is another reason for the Tottenham fans to be happy with the 2014-15 campaign.

Tottenham’s football has been quite entertaining this season, and there have been goals galore at White Hart Lane.

If Spurs chairman Daniel Levy maintains his faith in Pochettino and retains the services of the Argentine manager, then the Tottenham fans can look forward to an even better 2015-16 campaign.
