Given how great a transfer window Tottenham Hotspur are having, many fans are getting carried away and think that they may make a charge towards the PL title. Whilst this is not too far fetched, it is important that fans have their expectations tapered somewhat. Some of the best sportsbooks, such as those found here, have Spurs as 3rd favorites to lift their first Premier League title, sitting round the 16/1 mark. This however is going to be incredibly difficult given the strength of Liverpool and Man City, so what should the expectations of the fans actually be? Let’s take a look. 


There is absolutely no doubt that Spurs fans should expect to win some silverware this season, the club’s first for almost 15 years. With a manager like Conte at the helm who is a proven winner, plus the wealth of talent which they have in the squad, this team should win at least one trophy. Now some Spurs fans may say that they don’t mind what they win, but given the opportunity the side has, a league cup probably won’t cut the mustard. In reality Spurs should be looking for 2 trophies, be they domestic or European. Spurs have already made it to a Champions League final, so this ambition should not be scoffed at. 

Solidify League Finish 

Whilst the club should always seek to win the league, as should all teams in the top 6, what is most important is that Spurs nail down the top 4 as soon as they possibly can. Being in the Champions League is valuable in terms of revenue, growth and how attractive the club is to some of the world’s best players. As we often said about Arsenal, top 4 is not a trophy, but Spurs still need to ensure that they are firmly in that elite group of PL teams. 

Home Domination 

When it comes to the best online casinos USA sportsbooks often have Spurs as favorites at home, even against the very best teams in the league. Unfortunately however, last year they lost a lot of home games which they should have won. Given that the side have one of, if not the best stadium in Europe, they have to ensure that it becomes a fortress. Spurs fans should turn up to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium knowing that they are going to put on a show and deliver against all-comers. 

Smooth Ride

And finally Spurs fans most certainly should expect a side which is consistent throughout the season. This means making sure that everything runs smoothly on and off the pitch. Antonio Conte often used press conferences to make a point against the Spurs board, leading to plenty of press speculation. Those tactics worked for the Spurs boss, which means that the aim will now be to deliver with the players he has, and keep Spurs’ name out of the press unless it is positive. 

These are the realistic expectations which Spurs fans should have for the season ahead.
