what a mess.
all the ifs and buts in the world don't matter in the slightest. I don't care about what could've happened, but I do know that what didn't happen was us getting close enough to either of Chelsea or Leicester to be serious challengers. fact. at best, we were merely best of the rest. or second-best of the rest in Leicester's case.
We have been in a title race the last two seasons, the outsiders, playing catch-up, never with our destiny in our own hands (apart from the above mentioned NLD), but title contenders none-the-less. If you can't just accept that, perhaps you should examine your own motives rather than imputing the feeble minded vacuousness of everyone who believes contrary-wise that THFC were actually in a title race.
could you point me to where I said we have NO chance of winning the league?
Okay. Now we have this verb in the Enlgish language to infer. It is a thinking verb, not a doing verb like, say, to run, or to jump. It is of its nature creative, so ironic that you game me a <Creative> rating, because when to infer, when we make an inference, what we actually do is we examine a series of related arguments to extrapolate further meaning from a persons statement. Let me show you how this is done:
The general argument that you seem to be agreeing with runs that THFC should target the League and FA Cups, but particularly the League Cup as they will never win the league or CL.
You say that finishing third and second has fooled our fans into thinking we were genuine contenders.
You then claim that "now we, Tottenham Hotspur that have won all of 2 trophies in the last 25 years, seem to have this attitude that domestic cups".
So, the opinion from your side of the argument (that you don't necessarily agree with completely, is that we won't win the league or CL (treated as fact), you believe we were never in a title race previously and you state that because of our historic record we should target the domestic trophies.
Is it really such a logical jump to infer that you think we should be targeting the domestic cups because we've never been contenders for the title and aren't like to this year either? I not only think it is a logical inference to make, I think it is the most logical thing that can be inferred from your statement. If you didn't mean that at all, and you really do think we can win the league or CL this year say so and I will retract that portion of my frothing at the mouth rant. But it really does make your insistence that anyone who believes we where in a title race the previous two seasons is a fool, seem like a strange and pointless comment if you didn't mean to imply something about this seasons chances.
or where I've said we haven't improved dramatically as a club over the last 25 years?
you've literally just invented arguments to get wide-eyed and frothy-mouthed over. very bizarre.
