In 1960/61 we did the league / cup double but there was something also very special that season. We did it using only a total of 17 players (so much for squad rotation in those great days).
We also won our first 11 matches (drew the 12th with Man City). That record of 11 consecutive wins still stands amongst the top five European Leagues which is an incredible statistic but one that is also under threat.
Roma have won their first ten matches and will equal the Spurs record on Sunday if they beat Torino then they will surpass it if they beat Sassuolo the next week (and they are currently next to bottom).
I know that comparing the two is wrong and that records are there to be beaten. I also know that to win 10 consecutive matches in this modern era is a wonderful achievement. If they do manage 12 consecutive wins then I will have nothing but admiration for them. I will still however have this little voice inside me cheering on a football team I know absolutely nothing about and hoping somehow they manage at least a draw against the Roma side.
Come on Torino !!!
They drew 1-1….with both Torino and Sassuolo………Spurs still hold European record with 11 consecutive wins COYS !!!
