Fans of Tottenham ought to be happy.
Tottenham Hotspur supporters ought to be thrilled about the upcoming season, in my opinion.
Spurs, in my opinion, have a good chance of finishing in the top four spots in the Premier League this year.
Yes, they hadn’t had the best of results before their victory over Newcastle United, but they’ve been playing well and entertaining to watch.
Tottenham can definitely qualify for the UEFA Champions League, but I do not believe they are good enough to compete in the Premier League.
