So with less than a week to go before we open up the Premiership season with a mouth watering fixture agaisnt Manchester City what can we class as a successful season again? I would personall be more than happy with another top 4 finish and I might be a little greedy here but I would love to get through the group stages of the Champions League, I don’t see any reason why we can’t have a good run in that, Leeds have done it before so why not us?
When it comes to the League Cup you can pretty much bet that our squad will be weakend during the early rounds, if we get to semi final stage then I would expect Harry to take it a little more seriously, I don’t see this issue happening in the FA Cup so there is no reason we shouldn’t be aiming to win it.
People have come out and said that we could be title contenders, now as a Spurs fan and a realist I think this might be a little optimistic, so not just yet. I think our aim should be another top 4 finish but I think even that will be harder than last season. We are a very good side but I still think we lack something, we still have that inconsistent Tottenham way where we will beat a top team one week and lose to a bottom of the league team the following week.
If we are to maintain that top 4 push again we will need to ensure that White Hart Lane remains a fortress and we should be aiming to win 8 or 9 away matches. Last season’s away record was a big improvement on recent years which is why we finished 4th. Harry is the right man for the job, he won’t be taking any crap off of the players and will ensure they remain professional and 100% focused. I am sure we will have a couple of blips along the way but I am also confident we will pull off a few great results.
In about 10 days time we will taken on Young Boys for a place in the Champions League proper, can you imagine the feeling when you sit down on a Wednesday night and the Champions League comes on the television, then it sinks in that it is actually Tottenham you will be watching. This is something we have all dreamed of for years and this season it could and should become a reality.
So in conclusion for me, my aim is another top 4 finish and a good run in the Champions League, Would also like to have a day out at Wembley in one of the cups. So please use the comments box below and share your views, I would be interested to know your targets and what you would call a successful season again for the 2010/11 campaign in all competitions.
