You can't point to any team (Excluding the Manchesters and Arsenal) that wouldn't of taken 4th this year.
It's called a filler rebuilding season.
Something you're going to need next year.
They'd of gotten a CL space if it wasn't for Bayern not taking the stupid amount of chances they had.
Not saying Liverpool didn't have a good season, winning the League Cup and having a decent FA Cup run is good but Spurs should be very happy with getting 4th. Especially if they can copy/build on this season.
That's like saying Newcastle had a shit year. Just cause Spurs didn't make up as many positions as Newcastle did doesn't mean it isn't a bad season for them.
Could've been better but 4th is respectable.
