It's cos back in the day our expectations were much lower. An amazing night at the San Siro was the stuff of dreams, now we expect to be at level with them. We were happy to reminisce about thumping Real Madrid and even fairly content with going toe to toe with Juve.You’ve been on here for a long while now. Is it my imagination, or were player threads more positive back in the day?
Now, even after a victory, the first threads bumped on the Spurs forum are Winks being called Wanks, Stevie B being called Fatberg, Doherty being a donkey, Aurier being an idiot, Kane and or Son being greedy, Lamela being a crock, etc.
Seems to happen after every match. Maybe it’s just my imagination that it used to be different. I’m very possibly just being an old man shouting at a cloud. Just seems strange that the first reaction to a victory is to rip into one of our own.
As you said elsewhere, constructive criticism is fine, but there’s a hell of a lot of agenda driven shite going on here.
But we're running out of patience after all the near misses. We've got our mega stadium, the world famous manager, two of the best strikers in the world, a world cup winning captain, and spending man City money for a few players.
We're so close to greatness that every minor misstep feels like a huge opportunity lost.
