I missed the tournament with the highest probability of winning.
Tottenham Hotspur lost 0-1 to Sheffield United in the 5th round (round of 16) of the FA Cup in the 2022-23 season held at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England on the 2nd (Korean time). As a result of this match, Tottenham was eliminated in the round of 16 for the fourth consecutive season.
Another long-cherished opportunity to win was missed. Their last win was the League Cup in the 2007-08 season. No trophies or kites for 15 years.안전놀이터
The FA Cup was, in fact, the tournament with the greatest chance of winning Tottenham. Tottenham is 4th with 45 points from 25 English Premier League (PL) games in the 2022-23 season. It is a whopping 15 gaps with Arsenal (25 matches, 60 points) in first place. Even looking at the recent trend, it is difficult to compete for the championship. The realistic goal is to finish in 4th place, which is the right to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season.
In the meantime, the Champions League is also in danger of being eliminated. Tottenham lost 0-1 in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against AC Milan on the 15th. In the second leg held at home on the 9th, life and death must be staked.
However, even if they pass the round of 16, it will be formidable. Powerful teams such as defending champions Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City are still alive. After finishing runner-up in the Champions League in the 2018-19 season, advancing to the round of 16 is the best record ever.
Desperate for a trophy, Tottenham lost to Sheffield in the English Championship (second division) and was eliminated from the FA Cup. On this day, Harry Kane (29) started the game from the bench. Richarlison (25), Son Heung-min (30), and Lucas Moura (30) started a three-top operation.
In response, head coach Christian Stellini, who directed Tottenham instead of manager Antonio Conte (53), said, “I have no regrets. There are still many games left in Tottenham. We need to see it in the long run.” He went on to explain: “Kane has been in the last six games. His form has been a problem. He needs to manage the best players.”
He left an apology to the fans. On this day, about 5,000 Tottenham fans were seated at Sheffield’s home stadium. “I missed a big opportunity. I have to apologize to the fans,” added Stellini.
