"It is a club that generates emotion and passion and that is the most important thing."
Those were the words of Argentinian manager Mauricio Pochettino and thinking back through the last 57 years, well as far as I can remember back, passion has always been there. In the late 70's and early 80's I was there every week, a scarf tied around each wrist going through the joy and heartache of following my team.
I had no idea then I'd one day be writing about them as a fan to thousands of fellow supporters young and old. I have seen a lot in that time, I have seen the glory years, experienced the joy of winning trophies and then despair at our first ever Wembley loss and also our relegation season.
We have been peering over the edge as a bankrupt club and then along came Daniel Levy. While the rest stood still or even went backwards, Levy has built Tottenham into the sixth richest club in the land, but still he wants more.
The aim is to compete on level terms with the biggest and there isn't a Tottenham fan who can wait for that to happen. Nothing, nothing can jeopardise that, it is central to our future. Within that Mauricio Pochettino has been a talented and youthful team that is not the finished article. Still there are squad members who need upgrading within our current means.
While I'm going to enjoy the remainder of the season, I also can't wait to see who we are going to buy and let go this summer. It won't be a window like the last one where none of the top clubs made any changes to their squads.
The Premier League title already looks to be in the hands of Chelsea, leaving us with a top four spot and the FA Cup to aim for. There must be no mistake against Millwall and then the first eleven fielded for the semi-final.
Plenty to play for yet this season.
