Tottenham star James Maddison hopeful of ‘something special’ after win vs Brentford

Tottenham star James Maddison has expressed his optimistic outlook for the remainder of the season, emphasising the team’s potential to achieve something special despite facing challenges. In a candid statement, Maddison acknowledged the stop-and-start nature of the season, primarily attributed to injuries and suspensions that disrupted the team’s rhythm, notably referencing the setback in the Chelsea game.

The game against the Blues, back in the early weeks of November, marred by injuries and suspensions, stands out as a pivotal moment in the season. Madders saw himself injured, and so did Micky van de Ven. Cristian Romero was on the receiving end of a red card in the game as well which caused a lot of disruption.

Despite these challenges, Maddison radiates confidence in the squad’s capabilities under the guidance of manager Ange Postecoglou. The talented midfielder highlighted the team’s refusal to impose a ceiling on their aspirations, signalling a collective belief that they can embark on a significant run in the remaining 16 games of the season after a close 3-2 win over Brentford at home.

Here is what Maddison had to say via BBC on his hopes for the rest of the season:

“I feel really positive, we have had a stop-start year with injuries to our XI. It derailed us a bit, with that Chelsea game with injuries and suspensions. But I don’t think the gaffer wants to put a ceiling on it, we can do something special. We have 16 games left, we can go on a big run. If you don’t believe something special can happen, nothing can happen.”

Need to Maup the league

The win that propelled Spurs back into the top four of the league standings serves as a crucial step in their pursuit of success. Maddison’s comments certainly reflect the determination within the squad to overcome obstacles and secure a strong finish in the Premier League. We have to acknowledge the huge existing gap between Tottenham and league leaders Liverpool.

Despite that, Maddison’s optimism implies a steadfast commitment to closing that distance through exceptional performances in the remaining fixtures.

Postecoglou’s influence on the team is evident in Maddison’s words and the style of play, obviously. The manager’s philosophy and guidance seem to have instilled a sense of belief and ambition within the squad. Maddison’s positive outlook extends beyond mere rhetoric; it serves as a rallying call for the entire team to unite, push beyond limits and strive for excellence in the final few months of the campaign.

The absence of additional cup competitions provides a unique advantage for Spurs. With a streamlined focus on league performances, the team can surely concentrate on securing crucial points and climbing the Premier League table. Maddison’s emphasis on optimism becomes even more critical in this context, as it underscores the psychological strength required to navigate a league campaign successfully.
