Also TOttenham doesn't make as much money as those clubs. Arsenal is the same way. Only players I can think of Arsenal signing who could play on big teams are Ozil and Sanchez.http://m.goal.com/s/en/news/1862/pr...-expectation-the-difference-between-liverpool
While I'd say since last season (barring bottling the end of it) Spurs have been indeed getting more positive press, this is remarkably on point.
Particularly with the reality of Spurs players (and Poch) always being talked about in the context of their value to whatever bigger club rumored to buy them.
However, historically it's not like that's an unfounded perspective. You know, because Daniel Levy.
Arsenal is swimming in funds compared to Spurs. Significantly underfunded compared to all our top six rivals.Also TOttenham doesn't make as much money as those clubs. Arsenal is the same way. Only players I can think of Arsenal signing who could play on big teams are Ozil and Sanchez.
That being said, Tottenham has done a great job bringing in kids, and the fans should be proud. But they're not gonna have the ability to keep players from MAdrid, Barcelona, Munich, Paris, Manchester, or London. Those clubs have a ton of money. Call it the Dortmund syndrome. Dortmund is a big club in many regards, but they can't compete with Bayern. ANy of their players who Bayern or another big club wants, they get.
Hopefully they do well, competition is good. Don't just want Chelsea and City dominating while Man U figures out life post Fergie.Arsenal is swimming in funds compared to Spurs. Significantly underfunded compared to all our top six rivals.
Arsenal's problem is that they can offer money, but no so much on the glory. Madrid, Barca, Bayern, *choke* Chelsea, offer money AND glory. At least with Liverpool and Man U there's the history even if the clubs today aren't as successful as in the past.
But Spurs are showing hope for the future. And at least the current squad seem happy to believe in it.
But ultimately you're right, don't have the funds to attract the big stars (nor the willingness to pay for it, thanks Levy), and the trophies have to start coming in to get the glory part down.
So while I'd say you're right, that may be changing. Especially with the new stadium in the works.
I'm not sure how you're defining history here?! They are as successful as those teams in the past and in terms of history, have spent the longest uninterrupted in the top flight. It'll be 100 years in 2019.At least with Liverpool and Man U there's the history even if the clubs today aren't as successful as in the past.
Simply put, trophy count. It's not even close. Arsenal has won their share, but nowhere near Liverpool and Man U.I'm not sure how you're defining history here?!

We're gonna win the double!Dude, you are just spurs. I know it's the best you been for a long long time, but nobody is really seeing you. Being second in the league and being above the Gooners don't cut it in an American forum.
Hey, it ain't like I'm pissed at your lot stealing our manager!!
Maybe not. Rumor was he was heading to MLS this summer to the LA Galaxy, but the Galaxy look like they need some help right the hell now, so they'll likely pick up someone else in the summer window, leaving them without a spare designated player spot. It's possible Zlatan joins expansion side LAFC in January/February if he still wants to come to MLS, the only other potential option that I can think of right now is NYCFC, but they might not be so keen on a 36 year old given their....issues with Pirlo.Ibra out until January. He's gonna be coming to MLS me thinks.
Well, at least it looked like they were trying most of the time.Also thanks for the lack of help, Southampton.
Well we all appreciate your continued cooperation as everyone else's academy/farm team. Us and Liverpool especiallyWell, at least it looked like they were trying most of the time.
If Saint's manager Puel works out next season, that will be Arsenal set for their next French Manager, Everton will still have Koeman, and You guys will still be lovin' on Poch........Jebus, It's bad enough when you can't hang on to good players, but losing any half decent manager we sign too? It's getting very depressing being an also ran.
Thank heavens the fair play rule works out so, um fairly for the smaller clubs. :smack:
