Spurs fans were living in the past, now they are living in the present and the future. Those were the sentiments of Hugo Lloris and he goes on to explain what has changed.
If you stop and think for a moment, he is right. We meandered through season after season with nothing to look forward to and then came the UEFA Europa League era where we were qualifying each season.
That though was still viewed as a disappointment, the aim of course being the main European tournament, the UEFA Champions League. When we did make it we made an impact, but again we had to live off the memory of that as we waited for another finish that would take us back into the competition.
There is real hope now, it took a while for some supporters to realise we do have a team that can not only compete for a top four finish but achieve it. But for the most extraordinary achievement in Premier League history with statistics that suggested a relegation team, we would be holding a trophy aloft. The end of season when the players simply gave up wouldn't have happened.
Despite a poor Champions League campaign spirits are not dampened as we look in good shape at the moment to achieve another crack at the tournament with young players who will be a year older and a year wiser.
