The problem is that we have been taken in by this kind of talk before. Every fresh start is meant to be the time we get it right at last. It's easy to be carried away with sentences like the one above but I've seen countless managers line up with countless players for pre-season photocalls and every time you'd have someone saying 'We have a good squad and a good manager, we are making solid signings and future is bright'. Don't get me wrong, they will have my full support as usual when they take the pitch, as I have already stated, but I won't get carried away so easily, now more than ever. I want to enjoy it more, not face being let down by false expectations. It's those same expectations that leads to unrest when it doesn't all quite go as it should. I'm stopping to take a deep breath, looking forward to sustained progress and just hoping the next downturn in fortune isn't going to happen anytime soon. It sounds very pessimistic for me of all people but it is too easily labelled as that by those who buy into an overly optimistic view. It's amazing what stepping back and looking at things from another angle can do. I'm just sharing that view.
Just think back 5-7 years when the team was a joke. I also think taking a deep breath is fine and I can't help how you felt in the past or were suckered in by false claims but my honest response to you is if you don't care like you stated in your first post then don't come on here, if you do care then don't make posts saying how disinterested you are. Seems pretty simple to me. Anyway, for the most part I agree with what you are saying just not in the tone you seemed to be portraying is all. You should have said cautious not disinterested is all.
Besides this is Spurs, if you want realistic go support a team that knows its place, Spurs should never settle for average and we as fans should get excited when we bring in huge signings like Modric and Dos Santos with what we already have. Just need a few more signings to shore up def. midfield and goalkeeper IMO. Why not come on here and talk about the signings we need to make to get you excited for the new season then??
Anyway, not trying to be rude to you and think you made some good points just didn't like the attitude is all. :cheers:
