Tottenham Hotspur may end the season without a trophy or fourth place but there are reasons to be optimistic.
Tottenham Hotspur’s defeat to Aston Villa last weekend has seen the club’s hopes of a top four place become even more difficult with a seven point gap to overturn with six games left to run this season.
It’s been a familiar story of inconsistency for Tottenham fans all over the United Kingdom and the rest of the world, but regardless of where the club finishes in the Premier League, there are some areas where this season can be considered a success.
The Younger Players
Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and more have all come of age this season.
Kane and Mason in particular have progressed to a point where they are now priceless to the first team when there were plenty of other players ahead of them in the pecking order before the season got under way.
Few would have believe that Kane would have been sitting with a current tally of 29 goals across all competitions by this stage of the season.
Financially the club is in good shape and debt free, with the Daily Mirror recently reporting a 22% increase in revenue.
The results suggest that there will be money for the club to spend this summer if Mauricio Pochettino feels he needs to improve his first team squad in specific areas.
The New Stadium
The Daily Mail has reported that preparations have already begun for the development of a new stadium with increased capacity.
The new ground will increase the financial amounts the club can earn through gate receipts as well as increasing the number of commercial opportunities open to the club.
It’s necessary move for the future development of the team and the club.
The League Cup Final
The final itself was not a success, but Spurs battled their way to a showpiece final, which created the opportunity for them to win some silverware.
It showed that, regardless of how Tottenham’s run to the final was perceived, the current crop of players have it in them to go all the way in a knock out cup competition.
