Ryan Mason: Tottenham Hotspur’s season has been ‘decent’

Ryan Mason reflects on Tottenham Hotspur’s 2014-15 season.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has told The Sun that the team had a decent season.

Spurs finished the 2014-15 Premier League campaign fifth in the table with 68 points from 38 matches, six points behind fourth-place Manchester United.

The North London outfit also reached the final of the League Cup and the round of 32 of the Europa League.

Mason, who enjoyed a breakthrough season at White Hart Lane, has given an honest assessment of the 2014-15 campaign.

“I think it has been a decent season,” the 23-year-old England international told The Sun. “When you look at the money the top boys spent.

“Everton and Liverpool also spent a lot, and Southampton had a good season as well. So for us, it was important we finished the season well…

“To finish fifth after reaching a cup final this season with such a young side was a bonus. Hopefully next year we can kick on and if we get to a cup final we can learn from our experiences and win it.”

Tottenham’s aim was to finish in the top four of the Premier League; from that perspective the season was disappointing.

However, in the end, Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished above Liverpool, Southampton and Everton and just six points behind United.

It is now important for Tottenham to build on this season and try to go further in the 2015-16 campaign.

If Spurs make the right signings in the summer transfer window and get rid of the under-performing players, then they should be ready to challenge for the top four next season.
