TOTTENHAM have been mercilessly mocked on social media for 'ending' their trophy drought for having the best Premier League ground.
The North London outfit have expressed their delight after scooping the "prestigious" Premier League Grounds Team of the Season award.
A proud tweet read: "A huge congratulations to our Grounds Team, who have won the prestigious Premier League Grounds Team of the Season award for 2021/22!"
Supporters were quick to mock Spurs for finally adding to their trophy cabinet having not won a major honour since the League Cup in 2008.
Replying to Tottenham's post, one user said: "Your grounds team won a trophy before your football team."
Another joked: "Open top bus parade happening tomorrow at 12 noon."

This fan then said: "Premier League Grounds Team of the Season award!!!! You’ll never sing that!!!"
Despite the reaction from fans, Spurs further expressed their joy at the award as they praised their ‘hybrid carpet’ pitch.
Darren Baldwin, Head of Playing Surfaces and Estates, remarked: "This a very prestigious award within our industry and it really means a lot to everyone involved.
"Why? It’s been a long time coming, we last won in 2007, and to win with this new technology, the first ‘hybrid carpet’ pitch, is phenomenal.
“We’ve seen pioneering work here. It’s a real game-changer, and I’m sure other venues will soon follow our model. The work that goes into it shouldn’t be underestimated."
