Sam Ramm’s Blog – The season so far, my thoughts…

It’s time for an overview on Tottenham Hotspur’s season, with only 9 Premier League matches left to play, will Spurs secure Champions League football next season?

In the summer of 2023, Tottenham appointed head coach Ange Postecoglou from Celtic. Ange had won back-to-back league titles with the Scottish club, before he made his move to the English Premier League. His exciting style of attacking football was exactly what Tottenham had been missing for many years and the fans were very optimistic that Ange could be the answer in bringing back ‘The Tottenham way’.

The summer transfer window also saw the departure of striker, Harry Kane. After almost 20 years at Spurs, Kane signed a 4 year contract with German Champions, Bayern Munich.

Tottenham fans were undoubtedly left feeling very deflated before the season had even begun, however Spurs looked to strengthen their squad in all areas of the pitch and bought in exciting new players such as James Maddison, Micky Van De Van and Guglielmo Vicario.

Club captain and goalkeeping stalwart Hugo Lloris also left the club on a free transfer to the MLS, albeit in January, but it did mean we needed a new captain / leadership group which Ange duly appointed.  Fan favourite Heung-Min Son was announced as the new captain of Tottenham Hotspur and saw James Maddison and Cristian Romero become the two vice-captains.

Tottenham’s season started off on a high, with Ange Postecoglou winning the Premier League Manager of the Month award for the first 3 months running, which no other manager in Premier League history had achieved before. Despite this, Tottenham then went on a downward spiral after going 10 games unbeaten in the league and their season faced many highs and lows along the way ever since.

Today, Spurs are currently sitting 5th in the Premier League and with 28 games played Tottenham have seen 16 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses. Tottenham’s two previous matches were of complete contrast to each other, one of which saw them win 0-4 away to Aston Villa, but then the following week losing 3-0 at Fulham.

The exciting style of attacking football that has been bought to the club has been extremely enjoyable to watch, however it goes without saying that there is a lot of work still to do at the back of the field in order to keep out the many goals that are being conceded, many of which could have been easily avoided.

Ange Postecoglou’s side remain only three points off of the top four and with just nine games left to play and the possibility of fifth being enough this year the fight for the Champions League spots remain open and in sight.
