This season started with a real sense of optimism at White Hart Lane, but with just four games left to go after the 3-3 draw at West Brom, there isn’t much to be cheery about in the white half of north London. Gareth Bale’s departure was always going to be a blow, but there was a feeling that Spurs could at least challenge for the top four, but the dream of top level European football at the Lane next season looks all but gone – and the feeling is even more annoying to the club’s followers with Liverpool’s title charge still going. So what has gone wrong? Here are three reasons why Tottenham aren’t good enough to be in the top four.

Lack of a killer edge

While many of the other top sides have top class striker, Tottenham are over-reliant on the hot/cold Emmanuel Adebayor – who missed a penalty today. Roberto Soldado has also been a £25m disaster, and Harry Kane is too inexperienced to be a regular.

 

Tim Sherwood isn’t good enough

He may well be off at the end of the season, but the damage has already been done by good ol’ Tim. Sherwood has become a walking joke of late, with his gilet throwing and punch rumours giving other fans a real laugh.

 

 

 

Awful summer signings

£110m should buy at least four top class players, but the only Spurs player to have lived up to his potential this term has been Christian Eriksen. The others – including the missing Erik Lamela – have had a season to forget.
