    Exactly, Tottenham clearly didn't rate him very highly either considering the amount of times he was sent on loan.

    The difference is that no one really expects anything from Spuds, because they have won so little throughout history; their last league title is 57 years ago.

    That in general people expect more from us is a testimony that Arsenal is a much bigger club, although sadly Spuds are the better team currently. Things can change quickly, though. If they lose Kane and don't replace him properly we'll catch up to them instantly.

    Yeah but why did people expect things from us in the banter years? We couldn't afford to buy anyone yet were constantly slated for not competing.

    I've long since realised that opinions in football are pointless, people will say what they want.

    At the end of the day sport is a results business, and where it matters on the pitch they've still finished above us only once since I've been a fan and haven't won anything in a decade.

    All this "pride of England" and Pochettino the genius spin put out by the media will never change that. Ask any Spurs fan if they'd swap them being a "solid, tough team" for one of our FA Cups and they'd bite your hand off.

    No one other than Spurs fans will remember the great PL challenge of 2016/17 in ten years time.

    smaller club. we have higher standards, they don't demand success like we do. in the banter years, we still challenged for the league but bottled it in key moments. 2008, 2010, 2011, 2014. they've only had one league challenge (2016, i don't count last season) in decades.

    spurs is firmly third in size in London:

    Arsenal
    Chelsea
    Tottenham
    West Ham
    QPR
    Palace

    in that order.

    He answered another question then made a point of circling back and criticising their history :lol:

    I saw the interview, cracked me up that he went back & emphasized that fact "we know their history" :lol:.

    Was pleasantly surprised at the level of his English . Clearly angling for a premier league move, one can only hope its here ;)

    God I love the guy hahaha.

    Actually loving that whole team right now for all the digs they aimed at Tottenham. Juve is now the only team I'll support in that Champion's league.

    Mo Britain You should be ashamed of yourself Gazidis

    Historically they are second. Only the oligarch has pushed Chelsea to second. Had it not been for their one previous league title they were arguably behind West Ham too.

    That's what Kane will be wondering to himself as well when Madrid come knocking in the summer.
