The feeling within Tottenham at the moment is that you can’t mount a serious league campaign and play your first choice team in the Europa Cup. Yesterday, Tim Sherwood gave the clearest indication yet that Spurs will play a second string side throughout the European competition if we were to qualify.
“I don’t think it’s an ideal competition for a team who have got aspirations of playing Champions League football next season,” Sherwood said.
“But it’s a great opportunity to look at what we’ve got in reserve and I honestly believe that we have the players to step up and play.
“Liverpool have done it and they’ve got a good few players coming through and playing Premier League football at the end of the season.”
Tim was also upbeat about our season and insists we will be challenging the top four again before long: “Lots of clubs have invested heavily in trying to get the edge and unfortunately we’ve come up short,” he continued.
“Fifth and the Europa League is not the end of the world. Hopefully, next year we can get to the Promised Land again.”
Sherwood has confirmed what many fans have already been thinking so does the club have the talent in depth to mount a real challenge in the Europa Cup?
