TEN jaw-dropping things Tottenham fans could have done in their 13-year wait for a trophy
It’s been a long, long wait for silverware in Tottenham...
When it was announced on Sunday that six Premier League clubs had made the decision to become founding members of a new European Super League, the news was met with a potent cocktail of fury and derision from most parties – and justifiably so too.
With governing bodies across the continent threatening to enforce blanket bans on clubs and players who take part in the competition, there is a very real possibility that a tournament of this ilk could rip the beating heart out of several top divisions, including the Premier League.
But while the concept itself has caused widespread anger, so too has the roster of clubs who are set to take part.
In particular, much of the rhetoric on social media has focused on Tottenham Hotspur, and specifically, what qualifies them as an elite club.
The fact of the matter is that Spurs haven’t lifted a trophy since they won the Carling Cup under Juande Ramos in 2008.
At the time of writing, it has been 4,803 days since they pulled of that feat – equal to 115,272 hours, or 6,916,320 minutes.
Of course, they could win the Carabao Cup next Sunday, with a final against Manchester City on the horizon, but the sudden dismissal of Jose Mourinho on Monday has left big question marks over what state they’ll be in for that clash.
And that got us thinking – 13 years is a long time without silverware, so long in fact that many supporters probably wish they could have filled the time in other ways, rather than tottering around in a state of perpetual limbo.
With that in mind, we've put together a countdown of all the things Tottenham fans could have been doing instead of watching their side over the past 6,916,320 minutes.
If it happens to double as a mild comment on the ludicrous nature of hand-picking arbitrary clubs from across the continent to compete in an annual competition that will completely eradicate the meritocracy that should underpin all aspects of professional football too, then what a happy coincidence.
