VIDEO: Merse gives blunt answer when asked of Spurs’ height of success

Paul Merson has stunned fans by giving ‘the most sensible’ he has ever answered to a question after talking about Tottenham’s recent performances.

Jeff Stelling talked about whether “this was as good as it gets for Spurs” because there “isn’t any money, there won’t be any money for the foreseeable future with the stadium, course, they still haven’t got a date for the stadium, it’s not going to be this year now”.

Stelling went on to say “there’ll be question marks over some of their talented players, as there always are, the Harry Kanes, Deli Allis, Christian Eriksens before asking the former Arsenal player “Is this, possibly, the height of their success?”.

Merse, with a confused look on his face, simply gave a blunt but perfect answer “What success?”.

The video went on to be retweeted over 3,100 times, received nearly 8,000 likes and viewed by 260,000 users on Twitter.

And it’s fair to say, Merse is correct in what he’s saying. Tottenham’s last major trophy was around 10 years ago in the 2007/08 season when they won the League Cup, beating Chelsea 2-1, Drogba getting the first goal before Berbatov equalised and Woodgate scored a 94th minute winner.
