AVB: We wanted to win


Andre Villas-Boas remains hopeful that Tottenham can still snatch a place in the Champions League despite our 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

We all were looking to come away from Stamford Bridge with all three points to really put us back in the driving seat for European football. With two games remaining Spurs are two points adrift of Arsenal, with Chelsea a point better off.

We now have to rely on Arsenal dropping points against Wigan and Newcastle which seems unlikely, while we have to win against Stoke City and Sunderland.

“We wanted to win obviously,” he said.

“The feeling is that a point is not bad, but it is not dependent on us now. Someone will have to drop points. The task was to win here.

“Our focus will be to continue to do our job and hopefully with the teams Arsenal and Chelsea have to play, fighting for survival, something can happen.

“Anything can happen. The Premier League is completely unpredictable. Chelsea have a difficult game against Villa at the weekend.

“We have a difficult game against Stoke as well who are also fighting.

“This fixture before the emotions of the last day can be decisive.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What a great game last night! Adebayor in particular was superb. If only he had played like hat much more during the season. Where we have also lost out this season is, of course, in defense. We give away too many last minute goals making basic errors.Gallas should be sold. We need anoher world class utility defender urgently. When reviewing the season, Losing at home to Fulham and only drawing at home to Stoke is totally unacceptable. There are other matches where we have lost vital points also. We must be stronger all round in order to compete with the very best teams.

    • Why should we sign another CB when we have Vertonghen, Caulker, Dawson, Kaboul…? As for dropping points: it's going to happen. What the others have what we do not, is the ability to batch several wins together. The other two have finished stronger than us, so we merely need to improve squad cover to be able to last entire season
