The question we are all asking is ‘will we finish in the top 4 and a Champions League place’. Before you answer that and make your judgement, lets just look at a few facts.
We have been in this position – with things in our own hands – on a number of occasions and nearly every time we have ‘blown it’. Only when we made the champions league a couple of years ago, every other time we have blown it. Even last season, on 3 occasions we had it in our hands to finish 3rd (and then we would’nt have had to worry about Chelsea), yet we blew it each time.
Year in, year out, we get ourselves into a great position and shoot ourselves in the foot. This season, just a couple of weeks ago we had it all in our own hands against Fulham, we blew it. Last weekend against Wigan we had it all in our own hands, we blew it, and once more it is all in our own hands again with 4 games to go. Win them all, we cannot fail to make the Champions League. We should beat Southampton, Stoke and Sunderland, and then the Chelsea match. What would the betting be that we actually beat Chelsea, but don’t get the victory we need in each of the other games.
So, the question is, will we make it or will we blow it?
Being a Spurs supporter since 1962, i have no option unfortunately other than to be pessimistic. We always seem to get our hopes set up – look at all those who said when we beat The Woolwich Wanderers that we were certain to get in the top 4, and when i said lets not count our chickens, i was castigated by idiots with obscene remarks.
So, this is not a debate article, it is a simple YES or NO answer.
