And there I completely differ.
You miss the point here we will have periods of failure, no club has had 30 years of constant shining success, not one. Our club has been great and it's been a failure over a log period of time, every team is the same. Try talking someone who has witnessed us being relegated, funnily enough they will also recount the promotion season as being quite special.
Consider this, you're a City fan, the day they returned to the Prem from 1st division, is still probably their most prized memory. One of my most prized was the Crouch goal against City when we got our first run at the Premier League, are these moments meant to mean nothing just because they don't equate to a trophy of note?
The difference is that even now you can't acknowledge success, you can't see that the direction of travel is right. You hyper focus on silverware, you believe we should all be angry at not having silverware, I find it a bit joyless.
The real problem with your outlook is I can't see how you can be happy and support Spurs with that way of thinking, I'd be driven mad if I agreed with your line of thought because, really, nothing the club could do would ever really be enough and even if you were angry and upset about the lack of silverware, the truth is that you have no real effect on what decisions the club makes.
The time isn't now, it doesn't have to be because we're all going to be watching Spurs for a very long time, make of it what you will, I hope it's not as unhappy for you as you make it sound.
I started following us in ‘92 so I don’t really need to talk with someone about other failed eras. Again that was then this is now - it’s pointless to continually reference failed periods more so when they were decades ago. Seriously move on and focus on what we have now and make the absolute most it whilst it is here.
Speak to any City supporter and they will tell you their most prized memory is Aguero scoring in the 93rd minute to win the league beating their rivals in the process.
Success in competitive sport - whether it is football, tennis, Rugby success is defined by silverware, that is thee definitive outcome and terms of measurement. Now you may wish alter the definition of that - the game doesn’t and never will. Does that mean we cannot enjoy other times and moments - no it doesn’t but I will always want ( and expect when we have a team of this standing) to challenge and win silverware. That’s the clubs history and tradition and it’s our jobs as supporters to uphold that.
I suspect you are another one of those ‘90s’ supporters who is endlessly marooned in that failed time. And I get it - how can you ever be disappointed when your reference point is that era - even a modicum of success will be magnified when that is the basis of comparison.
