The 'big number' concept has been around for decades now, and membership has changed several times.

In the 80s, it included Everton and occasionally us. I remember talk of a big 6 which included Sheffield Wednesday. Imagine 20 years ago suggesting Man City or Chelsea being in such a grouping. 20 years ago, Newcastle would have been included.

The fact we hear about it so much is driven in large part by the need to segment clubs in some way, the need to drive marketing.

I understand why it exists but it makes me want to vomit.

Especially the idea of Spurs in it, which makes me want to vomit AND shit the bed at the same time.

Sours have spent most of my life marketing themselves far far better than we have. Especially in this era now of social media. We spent most of the last decade being shit and irrelevant to the world, they spent most of it telling everyone how great they are and in the CL.

As examples

Twitter
Us 2.4m
Spurs 8.8m

Insta
Us 3.9m
Spurs 17m

Us old fuckers may think stuff like that is crap but it's a massive difference in reach, brand awareness and people potentially buying a shirt or something. I don't overly like it but it's the world we live in.

I'm hoping we're now going to be actlng like we belong up there.

Although a massive proportion of those will be from Korea, which is something else we missed out on unlike the bigger teams.

Of the so called Big Six Spurs should not be in there purely on merit. They have won fuck all across the years the other 5 sides have hogged all the trophies. They are there purely on geography and, frankly, because it’s good radio for their inevitable fuck ups from every conceivable position of advantage.

People forget - Spurs have only won the title twice, and the last time they did it was closer to the reign of Queen Victoria than to today.

With them, it is.

1. London - so they've always received more media attention than they've deserved.
2. Repeated European competition qualification - including a CL final
3. Nice big stadium so they now generate way more revenue than lots of other similar clubs.

4. Saying they are. Give a journalist a line and they'll invariably accept it, especially if it's something they don't know much about. Lady Brady was good at peddling the woman in a man's world guff and saying they were the final Big Club to get into the Premier League.

Too right, unless you are a vegetarian/vegan, I can't see how you can criticise some animals being eaten whilst eating other animals.

Spurs are no bigger than Wolves or West Brom.

In fact I'd say Wolves are bigger.

Its the height of cheek how they're considered part of this Big 6 club.

Most of it is down to location but a bit of it is being associated with Arsenal and being their shitty local rivals.

I don't have hard evidence to back this up but I've always thought spuds get more attention than they deserve because a lot of the national journalists are from London and so a disproportionate percentage support them.

Londoners are also ignorant to the rest of the country, especially here.

I remember Merson saying when he came here he thought we had won one FA Cup and it blew his head off when he learned it was actually 7.

If we had the London postcode we'd be Big 6.

No offence to any London Villa fans hehe x
