It's still to win titles and put trophies on the table but if you asked any Spurs supporter what they would rather have, a league cup trophy or to finish above Arsenal, they would take the latter.
This goes both ways!
You have to take in to account the value of the competition and prioritise, hence all managers value a top four finish above winning a cup comp other then CL that is.
I guess I'm very different to most raider. id rather win silverware than finish top 4 or ahead of u goons.
but I know financially that is a stupid thing to say. its better for spurs to finish top 4 than win the Europa league for example.
I think it kind of sums up everything that's wrong with modern day football.
its better to finish 4 than win the FA, league or Europa cup.
it seems silly to me that both spurs & celebrate getting in to the CL when neither have any real hope of winning it.
which just highlights its all about money!
I agree its inevitable that u will finish ahead of us. but the amount of arsenal fans boasting about it or celebrating it is odd for something that is as inevitable as u say.
maybe its just my bad memory. But when u were challenging for titles most goons didn't seem that concerned or interested in the fact u finished ahead of spurs. they didn't really boast or talk about it much as u had much bigger fish to fry. we seem to be the fish u fry now. which kind of highlights your decline.
