The tides are definitely turning in North London and it’s good to see that media giants Sky Sports has realised the same as well.
Sky Sports released their Premier League fixtures for the 2019/20 season and its promotional poster is something to be surprised by, reason being the inclusion of Tottenham Hotspur in it while leaving out media favorites Manchester United.
This positive attention coming from Sky Sports has been much appreciated by the Spurs fans, who think it has been a long time coming.
The bias against Tottenham
After finishing second behind champions Chelsea in 2017, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was denied a place in the manager montages when it even featured the managers that finished way below Tottenham (Thick Accent).
Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts also blasted Sky Sports News back in December over their coverage and accused their pundits of being biased (Twitter).
Spurs have often been excluded from enjoying the status of a ‘big club’ in the eyes of the footballing world and it’s about time that we start appreciating the efforts of the club & their manager.
Spurs leading the way in the world of football
Pochettino inherited a team that had long lived in the shadow of London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea.
Since then the Argentine has modernised Spurs as a club, leading from the front by imposing a dynamic style of play on the team.
Since he took over he’s had a plan to become one of the best teams in Europe and now we’re not far away from the biggest game in Europe and in our club’s history. He’s done a fantastic job, he’s a great manager.Harry Kane on Poch back in May (via Reuters)
Last season’s runner-up in the UEFA Champions League, Spurs have secured four consecutive top-four finishes in the Premier League and have moved into one of the most impressive stadiums in the world at an estimated cost of £1 billion.
Sudden increase in their fan following across social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram is indeed a manifestation of their monumental rise (Thick Accent).
