Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier unhappy with ‘Spursy’ tag

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier has confessed his unhappiness over the ‘Spursy’ tag used to mock the club’s trophy drought.

Spurs have not won a trophy since their League Cup success in 2008. Despite possessing strong squads since, we have failed to add silverware to our collection. This has seen rival fans use the moniker ‘Spursy’ whenever they are keen to make fun of us for falling short.

“That’s something that’s quite frustrating to be honest.”

It was especially prevalent during the reign of Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine built a team that is capable of competing with the best. However, we fell short in two Premier League assaults and also in the Champions League final in 2019.

Hopefully, things will be different this season. Jose Mourinho has assembled an excellent squad that is currently at the top of the Premier League. Although there is still a long way to go, there is a real belief that this Spurs squad is unlike any other in the Premier League era.

Dier believes the ‘Spursy’ tag is not an accurate reflection of the times under Pochettino. He also praised the edge that Mourinho has brought since he joined.

“We finished second. We just didn’t manage to win it and people were calling that Spursy. I don’t believe this team has had that tag for a long time.”

The English international believes that Tottenham are a difficult side to play against. He admitted that teams do now enjoying matching up against the North Londoners who are dogged competitors.

The team’s performances have seen a number of opposition fans and managers sit up and take notice. If all goes well, ‘Spursy’ could very well come to mean a habit of winning trophies.

While we have not won much in recent years, every team has to start somewhere. And this could very well be our season.
