Tottenham's consistency fail to live up to expectations, drop points in crucial games that should have been won, and miss stunningly simple chances right in front of goal.
ex. Spurs fans are feeling something new; JOY! Happiness! They are winning, nothing could go wrong... JOINK! And the opposition have equalized, OH! And there's another, this is devastating for the fans. THAT'S SO SPURSY!

Tottenham Hotspur is an English football/soccer club that plays in the Barclays/English Premier League. For years, Spurs were known to drop points at crucial times and hence the current definition of Spursy. Not anymore. Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs' current coach, has transformed the team. Today in the 2015-16 season of the premier league, Spurs sit at no. 2 behind leaders Leicester and have scored the most goals, conceded the fewest goals, have the highest goal difference (+35 vs +28, the second highest) and have won more points (17) from losing positions than any other team this season. If anything, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are more Spursy from a few years ago.
