Looking at Tottenham Hotspur you cannot discount 2019 out of their history.
After an year playing at Wembley, Spurs shifted to their new stadium on 3rd April, 2019 and since then they have played and lost a Champions League final, got their hands busy in the summer transfer window, sacked Mauricio Pochettino and roped in Jose Mourinho to change their dwindling fortunes on the field.
One would logically assume that Daniel Levy has done everything in his capability to fill in the rather scantily populated trophy cabinet at the newly built stadium. However, the outcome of Daniel Levy’s investment has not bore the fruit he would have wanted, with his club desperately fighting for a Champions League spot in the Premier League and his new signings not hitting it off at all.
Spurs finished 2019 with a 2-0 loss to Chelsea at home on 22nd December, winning 2-1 against Brighton on Boxing day and drawing the final game of the year against Norwich 2-2 at Carrow Road.
Their fortunes didn’t change much as they started the year with a 1-0 defeat against Southampton at St. Mary’s and could only manage a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.
Spurs fan and a popular YouTuber Expressions Oozing recently went on Sky Sports to discuss the transfer possibilities for Spurs in the January window and with a little pinch of humor said on air what might resonate with entire Spurs fanbase at the moment.
Starting the show, the Youtuber clearly expressed his opinions on the ‘Christian Eriksen’ situation.
Expressions reiterated that even though he acknowledges and thanks Eriksen for his contribution, but his time is all but over at Spurs owing to his lack of energy and hunger on the field.
With a host of clubs pursuing Eriksen’s signature and Inter Milan chief Giuseppe Marotta confirming their interest in the Danish midfielder, it is set to be an interesting transfer window for Spurs fans as they wait to see how much they can earn from the star midfielder’s sale should he choose to go.
After having a detailed discussion about Christian Eriksen, Expressions quickly moved onto Jan Vertonghen and how the defenders contract situation is delicately poised.
Expressions opined that he believes that Jan Vertonghen is one of the best defenders in Spurs squad and he would quite like for the Belgian to stay as a squad player.
Expressions ended the segment with his opinions and wishes on the areas Tottenham need to strengthen and he suggested a host of areas including full backs on either wing, centre backs, a defensive midfielder and a forward.
To sum it up Expressions’ segment was highly entertaining, quite sensible from a footballing perspective and football fans loved the humorous way with which he explained and kept his opinions.
