Hoddle blasts Spurs: You blew it last season!

Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle says they blew last season's title race.

Hoddle wrote for the Mail on Sunday: "Tottenham have only themselves to blame for failing to take their opportunity last season to record what would have been the club's greatest achievement since the Double of 1960-61.

"Mauricio Pochettino's team could have gone down in history.

"Title races are a little like the Grand National; if you're in sight of the leader with two furlongs to go, you know you may never have that chance again. It's a once-in-a-lifetime moment. That's how it feels with Spurs and the title last year. It seemed like it was a unique season, when the major powers were re-grouping.

"Tottenham did amazingly well to take advantage, but when they faltered, dropping points against Arsenal, Liverpool and West Brom, there was always that fear that Spurs fans and players might be looking back with regret for years to come."
