History May Repeat Itself - Nervous Or What?

History May Repeat Itself - Nervous Or What?

The final game of season 2009/10 saw Manchester City and Tottenham play for the last Champions League place and the way the current Premier League is panning out history may repeat itself.

We all know what happened and Tottenham qualified. In addition, and if I'm honest Harry Redknapp's team are proving a huge success in Europe's prestige competition. Could we have done any better? I'll leave you to answer that one.

The competition

Chelsea has suddenly found their form and consider themselves favourites to pip City to the post. I have a feeling; similar to many of you who think the Premier League is going down to the wire - again. Will it be Chelsea or Tottenham battling MCFC for a top 4 place?



The following clip, taken from the movie Blue Moon encapsulates the nerves and tension surrounding the climax to last season. Could history repeat itself and are you nervous. I know I am.

Chelsea will still be vunerable, one loss and its panic stations again, if we can both do a job on em and hope united beat them at old trafford, I think it will be them who miss out, then a friendly draw at eastlands and we can both enjoy the CL party next year!!

Yep. If it had to come down to it, I'd go for liam's very good recommendation above and push Chelsea out of the equation entirely.City and Spurs making up third and fourth would do for me, though not in that order obviously.;)

Just hope you guys are right and both City and Tottenham make the grade. I bet, having had a taste of the CL you want more.

We are desperate for more. Absolutely desperate. Good luck though. It has been another good, tight season so far.

Fair point, well said James. I just hope we get a taste of the promised land next season. Having said that we're still in the FA Cup and the Europa League so we could still win a trophy or two.

I'd love to see you and Spurs finish above Chelski. Have to say if you do get Champs League football I don't think you'll have the same impact as Spurs have. You might be more successful, but you won't set it alight the way they have. Spurs play with fearless tactics, whereas Mancini sends out your team not to lost more often that he should.

If we got into the CL, we'd sign at least two top players, including the elusive creative midfielder we lack, someone like Sneijder.
