Why Spurs deserve WAY more credit than they’re currently getting

Essentially homeless, Mauricio Pochettino's side are holding their own

Spurs are third, six points off the top but two clear of Chelsea and Arsenal, who were tipped for the title and have embarked on their longest unbeaten run since 2007 respectively.

All this without a stadium they can call home.

Spurs have somewhat dispelled the curse that haunted them last season, but the apathy towards their temporary ground is at an all time low.

Just 33,000 fans attended their easy win over Southampton on Wednesday night, barely enough to fill the lower tier.

This isn’t disillusionment with the club – far from it – but instead the soulless, gutless Wembley itself.

Spurs, to their credit, keep plugging away and have incredibly registered more wins on the road than any either side in Europe this season.

Wembley is the polar opposite; a wide expansive pitch where opposition players can enjoy themselves.

A regular home ground creates a sense of belonging and identity.

Considering where Spurs are, they’ve exceeded all expectations.
