Would Spurs be happy with 5th and a decent cup run?
Given the absolute shambles that has been Spurs for the last couple of seasons, i would take that as long as the performances were solid and we didn't continuously capitulate like we did last season.
I think most half sensible Spurs fan realizes where the club sits in the upper echelons of the league standings. Clearly the two bank rolled clubs are out of the equation, so that's at least third. Then add in the fact that we've not finished above Arsenal for ages now so that's 4th then at best, then you're fighting against Liverpool for the next spot. So yes, 5th this season with perhaps a cup to show for it at the end and solid team performances i would take right now. Perhaps going all the way in the Europa.
