Which is rather less painful and embarrassing

Which would you rather pick?

Conference League is an embarrassment of a competition and we will get bantered for the majority of next season as the first english side to ever qualify to that lowly competition

St. Totteringham Day will also be very painful after the season woolwich have just had, but they will also become a barrel of laughs if they qualify to that banter competition.

IMO I would pick finishing below scum and completely miss out on european football next season. It will be painful for a couple of weeks but we will also get to laugh at woolwich for being in that competition.

Also, lack of Europe will enable the new coach to work efficiently with smaller squad plus free weekdays which is going to improve our league performances and better chance of winning domestic cups.

I couldn't care less about being bantered. I support Spurs, I'm used to it. Our fringe players should easily be able to navigate most of the early stages.

If your desire is to avoid being "bantered" then surely you also want to avoid "St Totteringhams day", which is also just banter?

Fuck the Woolwich either way. 3 points today please and whatever comes with it.
 
I want a win today. (It's the hope that kills you... every damn week.) I want the highest possible finish. I FOR SURE want to see the scum behind us.

I know this Conference League is a booby prize. But we blood our youngsters, we let our new manager (who I hope will be here for a while) really get to know our pipeline of talent, and we move forward. That's not the worst thing.

ANTONIOOO CONTEEE
I’d pick Conference League without a doubt. I don’t get why the fans are so arrogant to downplay this competition, no matter how tinpot it is. It’s not like we’ve won fucking shitloads of trophies to be selective about what competition we want to take serious. We can’t win UCL anytime soon, reaching the final again will be incredibly difficult if we get back in UCL and we seem to choke in EL everytime we get past the group stages.

It’s not like we’ve won fucking shitloads of trophies to be selective about what competition we want to take serious. We can’t win UCL anytime soon, reaching the final alone again will be incredibly difficult if we even get back in UCL and we seem to choke in EL everytime we get past the group stages.
Spot on.

Furthermore, ECL could be a chance to watch the likes of Scarlett, Devine, Cerkin against professional opposition.
 
There’s a another option which would avoid both horrible outcomes: Everton get 7th and the ECL and Woolwich get 9th. We finish 8th so no ECL and above the goons again.
 
Only my opinion but I'd like to get into the conference league and win it.

It seems like the only piece of silverware that spurs have a realistic odds-on chance of winning and beggars can't be choosers under the limitations of the Levy/ENIC ownership.

Bit of a hollow laugh at Woolwich being in Europe's 3rd tier when we couldn't even qualify for that.

Being above Woolwich is literally all we've left to play for.
