Van Der Vaart: City Has Lost It

Van Der Vaart: City Has Lost It

Tottenham striker, Rafael van der Vaart believes his team has the advantage during the run-in for the Premier League title.

In recent weeks Manchester City's form have began to jitter especially with the goalless draw against WBA and the defeat at the hands of Sunderland, and the 28-year-old Netherlands international believes the tide has turned.

Following Tottenham's recent 2-0 over Everton the Dutchman said...

'City are not so consistent any more,' who was booked when City thrashed Spurs 5-1 in August.

'They have lost a few games and maybe that's a little in their heads so we can take advantage.'

'We will know where we stand after City. But everybody in the dressing room believes we can win the league. Absolutely.'


Spurs come to the Etihad Stadium in two weeks time (Sunday 22 January) in what is most definitely a six-pointer.

I have to admit but i'm bricking it already. If Wigan manage to get something from our game on Monday then i'll need therapy (my left eye is beginning to twitch) and the Spurs game is weeks away.

Mind games occasionally work on fans - they don't work on players, nor will they work on Mancini. As far as I'm concerned, I like it when the opposition go all giddy - in the back of their minds they will feel that the job is already done. After our last few games, any lingering thoughts that we were home and hosed will have quickly gone - and I feel that gives us the edge going into the run-in. Don't let the last few results fool you, we mean business, and Mancini and the team will merely use this sort of mouthing off to strengthen their resolve.

Didn't VDV say something similar last season? We saw how that all panned out, didn't we?

BTW Spurs fans, I'm surprised not a one of you has cottoned on to the fact that 'arry's remarks this morning about how the amazingly virtuous Tottenham haven't spent any money are merely code for "There's no value in the market". Don't reckon you'll be very active in this transfer window then.

What Spurs fans have cottoned on to is that if this is what you get for a BILLION quid then good luck to you!

And where are you getting a billion from? Since the takeover we have spent approx £420 million on transfers. Are you Dr.Evil in another guise?
