    We have a better manager and a better team than we did then. We are aiming to win the league but the best teams are competitive in all competitions, playing a lot of games is a good problem to have not a bad one, it means being in the mix to win something.

    Well, the Peace cup is one of the high points as Spurs fan for me. Reckon I'd enjoy CS too

    I'd love for Spurs to play in the Charity Shield every year.

    Ten years, zero trophies. And now by the end of October we're down to the FA Cup with our reserves, or the Champions League (year, right). Make that eleven. Not good enough.

    You don't even need to win big games that often, as Mourinho shows. You need to draw them, and be consistent against the rest.

    Even in the cups you just need to take them seriously and have a bit of luck.

    These are the bastions of footballing talent Manchester United had to defeat to lift a European trophy last season:

    Fenerbache
    Feyernoord
    Zorya Luhansk
    Saint-Étienne
    Rostov
    Anderlecht
    Celta Vigo
    Ajax

    We could have done the same, if we wanted. And we need to. You need that winning mentality to keep players happy, to take the pressure off when you're close to the bigger trophies, to make winning a habit rather than a dream. Not to mention it's ultimately what we all want to see from the club.

    I'd rather we lose a game trying to win than lose trying to scrape a draw. At least if you're trying to win there's a chance you may succeed!!

    Of course you would, but that's not the way the game was going. United had had a couple of big chances, including hitting the post, and were clearly the more threatening side at that point. In a six-pointer away from home that's the stage where you cut your losses and take the draw. We don't have their squad depth to bring on players like Martial costing ridiculous money, but we have to play smart around that.

    League title off the list and we're not winning the CL so all about the FA Cup now. Still optimistic if we can make a couple of signings in January.

    Having said that there's probably more chance of us winning the CL than signing anyone in January.

    FA Cup this year has to be the one. Has to.

    That and top 4 will take us nicely into NWHL next season.

    Yes, but we don't. We would never had won all those games. We would have slipped up somewhere or had some hilarious disaster. Remember, we'd been in the Europa League for years and years without making any impression on the tournament.
    We must prioritise a win in one of the minor cups. A win in the FA Cup this year would be absolutely massive for us and give us the confidence to push on in the bigger comps. Someone have a word with Poch!

    I don’t believe we’ll win a cup this year. Under Poch must I assume that we will win things if he stays - but I think not this year

    i think Pochs record in the cups is awful, i think we have only won 2 games against premier teams in the cup since he started and lost about 7, in that time we have also nearly gone out to Sheff united and Wycombe
