I don’t think it’s a shit thing to say. There’s a breaking point in all things. As much as we’d love to believe our passion for Spurs is unconditional, there will be things that on a personal level are too big to overcome.
For some it would be having some seedy Saudi billionaire owner taking over. For others it might be the redesigning of the club football format to favour a select few. Judas becoming our manager would definitely see me going on hiatus from all things Spurs.
To be honest, I’m already going through the motions in a lot of ways. I said that the moment Chelsea win the CL and the Sheik Mansour team win the Prem I’d realise how empty and soulless modern football had become, and that moment came and went (at our expense, no less). Since then there have still been several great highlights for Spurs, but I rarely get particularly emotional about football - win or lose. The last time I genuinely felt emotional about us was the WHL finale. Maybe the new stadium will rekindle that...just in time to be snuffed out by a pathetic new format that excludes millions of fans across Europe for the sake of a few.
If this new league actually happens I honestly hope the whole of professional football collapses. United, Chelsea, Woolwich, Liverpool, and the Sheik Mansour team would then only be remembered for killing off one of the great entertainments of human history.
Perhaps but you could look at it another way. With the 5 gone and all the international nonsense that comes with it English football might actually be able to go old school somewhat.
What remains of the English league can reform and perhaps promote English players, teams can win the title without spending 3 billion, the FA cup might become the great trophy of yesteryear.
Getting City, United, Arse, Chavs and Pool our might take with it all the bolloxs that’s ruined football. Long as those 5 never have any way of coming back to English football.
Think of Tottenham as English league champions while Woolwich sit bottom of the international fancy pants league.
