Ghana, Chelsea didn't even start with Hazard in the semi final, if Pochetinno did that with Son and lost you would be saying the same thing. We are 2nd in the first time in about 50 years, it has only been the last 2 seasons we have been competing properly. Obviously the players efforts are not good enough just yet as they didn't win the league, Chelsea did better.

It's taken a record 13 game win streak, points total, no europe playing Chelsea to beat Spurs to the title. Gary Neill pointed out that average number of player changes for a title winning team is 100+. Chelsea made 38 changes this season to personnel on the pitch. Says it all for me. Since start of 2015/16 season we've taken 15 more points than closest rival and now won 10 of last 11 games. I doubt anyone was expecting such progress and were waiting for us to do a "Spurs" snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. We never lead the league, never threw anything away, just continued to get better. Bar Chelsea, there aren't any others in the top 7 that are happy with their league season. 2 personal bests in 2 season? Mauricio Pochettino, he's magic, you know!

Ghana, yep, no trophies to show for the great endeavour and performances shown this season. Can't argue with that. Let's stay on topic though. We weren't playing for a trophy last night, though Harry and Son will have you believe otherwise. It was a phenomenal performance against a team that has been on the up under Shakespeare. We've defied the myth of season-end collapse. Harry off to collect another golden boot, 3 players with over 20 goals, record points haul, and more to the point, CONTINUOUS improvement under Poch. That to me shows this team is keen to continue to learn as is the manager. Therefore, I can live with another trophy-less season as they continue to head in the right direction. Surely, the next step up is to start filling that dusty cabinet. I think we are heading in the right direction. having waited 20 odd years for a trophy, surely we can afford Poch and the boys more than 3 years on a steep learning curve? COYS!

Ghana, the tactical issue to refer to are fine margin calls. had it worked in our favour, Poch would've been hailed a messiah. I bet Chelsea fans were gobsmacked when they saw Hazard and Costa on the bench. On the day, seems the stars were aligned for Chelsea as you can't legislate for one defensive error and a worldie shot for the goals. Before that Semi-final game, many were concerned about the lack of pace on the left with Davies. Poch imo selected son to help out as there were no other options from the squad. Hopefully, the pacy AM's (wingers) will be added to the squad to resolve such shortcomings. Hope you've still enjoyed the season and appreciate the year-on-year improvements. COYS!

Ghana, I was surprised at Son being a wingback and wasn't happy about it, I was at that game and thought that was one of our better performances and should have won, didn't happen so can't blame Pochettino for losing the semi final considering the performance put in, mistakes cost us there. Keegan and Rodgers both blew big leads and were top of the league and lost it. We have never done that. We can only go on what we see now, at the moment it is good and if we carry on improving then hopefully the trophies will follow.

We last won trophy in 2008. If you look at winners of the domestic cups since then, the "rich 5" virtually clean up. Besides them, you have Wigan, Birmingham, Portsmouth - who have all been since relegated....Portsmouth in the bottom tier even. No one can claim that these teams have more guile than Spurs. On top of that, Swansea also won the league cup since we last did it, and they only just scraped survival this season....and do not have more guile than us either. Winning a trophy is about either being one of the big 5 or avoiding the big 5 (or catching them fielding their kids - which they never do vs Spurs), then maybe pulling it off in the final. Bemoaning not winning a trophy these days is like bemoaning the fact that we aren't one of the "big 5"... Instead of moaning about it, we should try to BECOME one of the big 5... That is what we are doing. We are finishing in the top 5, then 4, then 3, then 2. Being unbeaten at home, increasing stadium size and revenue and profitability. "We should have won a trophy this season" is merely a statement saying that we were good enough to win one, not that we lack the guile to win one. It just wasn't to be. A few seasons back Liverpool should have one the title, and were good enough to, but it wasn't to be. Incidentally 'big trophy cabinet' Liverpool have won no more trophies than us in the last 10 years.... And we consistently finish above them these days. Arsenal have just one more trophy than us in that time.... We really aren't that far behind when you look at the big picture. The trophy is coming, and many more after that. A very strong foundation is being built here.

Ghana, it was good talking to you,. I am off to be happy to be 2nd this season, not because I want to be 2nd but that is where we are so am happy. I don't care what Leicester do either but as you keep comparing us to other teams and Pochettino to other managers then it bothers you. Hopefully we can win something soon so you can be happy with a trophy.

Tony - I don't share Ghana's frustration about this season, but I do share his concern at lack of trophies recently. For example, it does somewhat surprise me that we have been arguably a better team than Liverpool, on average for a decade or so, finishing above them in the league 7 out of the last 10 seasons. Yet their last trophy dates from 2012 and they have appeared in League Cup finals, Europa League Finals and FA Cup finals in the last 5 years. There is no reason why we couldn't compare our performance to them - you look at Swansea, Portsmouth and other to make your point that they are worse off, but we should be looking at our peers (ie top 6 teams), especially the ones we have been competing closely with and/or beating frequently, as closer measuring sticks. Also "Winning a trophy is about either being one of the big 5 or avoiding the big 5 (or catching them fielding their kids - which they never do vs Spurs)" - didn't we get beat by Liverpool's kids in the League Cup this year?

ghanahotspur, you are very depressing. Seems you've been on Pochettinos case ever since you signed up to this site. Even before it was reasonable to ever expect a trophy. Although I suppose that is all the ever shrinking naysayers have left to moan about thanks to Poch. But it does leave me wondering what the motive is behind all this. Sounds very personal, like someone else who use to post on here. I think its important to note, the progression from shambles under Tim Sherwood, to 2nd in the league, breaking records left, right and centre, in just 3 seasons with close to a zero net spend, has been amazing, given the clubs and world class managers we're competing with. With everything that's going on, its a good time to be a Spurs fan. Hopefully we can win a cup soon, but football should be more than that surely. Lighten up maybe?

One of the things that pleased me most last night was that we played with the same intensity and desire as if it was the opening game of the season. Hopefully that should put to bed the notion that Poch's teams can't last all season. And we had a European campaign to boot.

Gary Onedaysoon, I agree and I think that stems from the manager himself. If you compare MP's reaction to Sons miss in the 1st half yesterday, vs his demeanor in the last few games last season, where he barely left his seat, there was a noticeable difference. But as good as we were yesterday, Leicester were a disgrace in front of their home fans. As we were vs Newcastle at the end of last season.

@Ghana, you're right, feel free to continue your depressive state of mind and anti-Pochettino agenda.

ghanahotspur, no, he's the manager of the club I support and happens to be doing a very good job. Not sure where your recent irate attitude has come from, given we will finish higher than we've ever finished in half a century and just beat Leicester 6-1, but you are usually well mannered and calm. Hope you don't get hit with the ban hammer, but seems like you're treading very close to crossing that line. Your comment to me was childish, but harmless. But keep off the racial/sensitive unrelated-to-football personal stuff. Its just pointless. Hope you get back on form soon..

Great performance and emphatic result, lovely to take Vardy and Co down a peg or two. Our Harry showed there is a gulf in quality and know how between him and gobby Vardy, Son also looks a good foil for Harry and together they are a formidable pair, and Deli, what can you say, the guy has so much natural ability that he can simply be as good as he wants to be, he has the potential to be the best player ever to wear our shirt as he matures and develops.

It really makes me wonder what the expectations of some Spurs fans were at the start of last season and the start of this season were and whether we managed to achieve them. Personal bests in position, games won, games lost, goals scored, goals conceded and goal difference, but it would appear that it's not enough, as though we had an Alex Ferguson at the helm. The Rich 5 winning trophies, and those that did "ponce" one have all been relegated or struggling in the league. I suppose doing better than you have done for 50+ years isn't good enough for some, which is a shame. Other than Chelsea, every other team in the league would be proud to have had the season we did, including those that would be deemed bigger/better than Spurs, but let's deem not winning a trophy a failure of a season, despite all the positives. I hear Arsenal fans saying they expect to win the league, despite not challenging for 10+ years. We've managed to do it 2 years running, which exceeded what our remit was: to challenge for a top 4 spot, unless all of a sudden we're ahead of the Rich 5 and have a God given right to winning trophies. Maybe I missed that period. Some, who may be disappointed, may need to look at what their expectations were in August 2015 and 2016, see where we ended and put 2 and 2 together. Yes, it does equal 4. Fantastic season, progression and the future looks Lilywhite. COYS!

When a man points to another man and accuses him of racism because of simply presuming him to be of a certain ethnicity or having a different cultural background to himself and yet, that other man has said or done nothing to incite such feelings, it's usually the sign of a man expressing nothing more than his own innate prejudice.

Unless I'm mistaken, none of us on here are in our hundreds. Therefore, we have no responsibility whatsoever, on our shoulders for any British colonisation of any land that happened a hundred and more years or so ago, anywhere on this planet. and ... Ghana itself gained it's independence from British rule before I was born. Likewise, for any other Europeans that post on here that may come from a country that was also responsible for the ransacking of other Nations around the world. .... What some folks need to understand also, about British history, is that the powers to be, for many hundreds of years have also had the ordinary everyday man, woman and child within this Island of mine under it's thumb as well. We are not all the decedents of aristocracy and the ruling classes. They were and still remain to be, in a small minority. - My Grandmother herself, as a 15 year old, was an uneducated maid (servant) for a wealthy English family (until she ran away/escaped to London). The vast majority of us come from this kind of background. Not a privileged one and certainly not from a position of power, even within the confines of our own villages and towns, let alone another country. - I would also like to add that it was an Englishman, Yorkshire man, William Wilberforce, that lead the campaign to abolish slavery. Not just in the British Isles but around the world. If I was alive in the 1780's, I would have probably been a supporter of his movement. Presume what you like about anyone but don't assume you are right in your presumptions. That is ignorance and that is inflammatory and foolish.......... sorry all but I needed to get that off my chest! .......... 6-1! Happy Days!
