Tottenham Failed To Capitalise Their Game In Hand

Tottenham Failed To Capitalise Their Game In Hand

Congratulations Tottenham you did Manchester City a favour last night by only managing to add one point to your Premier League tally. The 3-3 draw with Arsenal was a classic but let's be honest, you failed to capitalise on the game in hand.

The race to end the season within a Champions League place is reaching fevering pitch especially as there is only six Premier League fixtures left to play. The draw at White Hart Lane means Spurs remain in fifth, two points behind City but more importantly, both clubs have played the same number of games.

As of Thursday 21 April 2011 the title is Manchester United's to lose and unless something spectacular happens between now and Sunday 22 May the current league table will more than likely remain the same.

The crunch game of course comes on Tuesday 10 May when Harry Redknapp brings his side to the City of Manchester Stadium. A win for either team will in my opinion settle fourth.

The race to the final hurdle is most definitely on.

Beacause of goal difference City would have still been in 4th even if Spurs won yeaterday but that point does mean in all likelihood Spurs will be in 4th place when City kick-off at Ewood. Game on

I think our run-in is slightly less tricky then Tottenham's but then again every game is a potential banana skin. Spurs did it last year and now I think its our turn for a stint in the Champions League.
21/04/2011 09:45:00
Gonna be very tight again. Can city win us at eastlands tho? How long has it been now?????
21/04/2011 10:12:00
We're due one stelios, we're a much better team now, are Spurs?
21/04/2011 10:17:00
Spurs put a run together at the end of last season because they were fresh and nearly every game that mattered was at WHL (except City). Last night's draw is points dropped and 4th is certainly City's to lose as it has been for the entire season. 'Arry's comments after yesterdays game about City spending £150million to finish one place more than last season really did my head in. He's a prrrick. He's nervous now cos he knows Spuds are *****ed if they don't make CL and he feels obliged to make comments about our season. What a tosspot..
21/04/2011 11:08:00
Rojo he may be nervous but is it not true that since the end of last season you have spent that much on new players?? Also not sure how u come to the conclusion Spurs will be *****ed if we don't make the CL??
21/04/2011 11:47:00
He was having a swipe Ossie and it was totally uncalled for in the context. He's making his excuses nice and early if you ask me. And Penfold Levy has admitted you're financially screwed if you don't make the CL and will have to 'streamline' your squad ie. sell all your best players, to reduce your wage bill significantly. Arry just needs to shut his trap. Banging on about the Stoke fixture too. he's a proper knobend.
21/04/2011 12:00:00
Check out the Forbes most valuable football list Ossie - gaining entry to the Champions League increased your club's annual income by 70% over the previous season. Now think about losing that and tell me you don't agree with rojo's assesment of where you'll be without it...

Sorry, helps if I remember to include the link!
21/04/2011 12:21:00
Its in Spurs' hands. Win our last six games and we're in the CL -again!!
