Tottenham Hotspur

Has there ever been a more exciting time to be a Tottenham Hotspur fan?

With the club about to secure Champions League football for the second time in three years, and playing the league's most attractive football, Spurs season ticket holder Matt Davis asks the question.

During the 130 year history of Tottenham Hotspur, there have been 30 trophy wins for the North London club. This includes eight FA cup victories and being the first English team to win a UEFA competition; the Cup Winners' Cup in 1963.

Yet, with Spurs being third in the Premier League and their closest to winning the highly prized title, has there been a more exciting time to be a Spurs fan?

Of course it is a matter of opinion. Although, the way the team is playing at the moment with pace from Bale, skill from Modric and quality tackling from Parker, it can be said that in the most open league in the world, Redknapp is doing something glorious to the club.

Spurs are now being considered as one of the "top four" as a result of outplaying some of the most accomplished teams in English footballing history such as Liverpool and their North London rivals Arsenal.

As well as this, by Spurs being able to show that their Champions League spot two seasons ago was not a fluke by reaching third in the League, it looks as if the club have turned over a new leaf displaying sheer quality.

Furthermore, the possible relocation of the Spurs stadium could help the side to accumulate more funds for the transfer market, with an approximate 30,000 extra seats being created for their new ground.

However, the 1961 double winning squad is historic in the world of football. The Spurs team were the first club in the 20th century to win both the League and the FA cup, paving the way for other teams such as Manchester United and Chelsea who have followed in their footsteps.

Yet, it could be argued that with £80 million pounds being spent on players in the modern day, the standard of football expected in the most prestigious league in the world has changed drastically which is giving a new thrill to the modern day, consolidated by the transfer window.

Hearing potential transfer rumours for your club is always an exciting time. Yet, when you are being linked with world class players such as Hazard, and in competition with prestigious clubs such as Liverpool, any Spurs fan will say the future is beyond bright.

Being tipped as favourites for the FA cup this season and looking certain to clinch a Champions League spot, I don't think that there has ever been a more exciting time to be a Tottenham Hotspur fan, as shown by the world class peformances being produced week to week.
