Palacios: Spurs should aim higher than fourth

Wilson Palacios has claimed that Tottenham can aim for higher than a fourth place finish.

The top four places in the Premier League carry the coveted Champions League qualification spots and the midfielder believes that Spurs are capable of finishing higher than fourth.

“The manager has said that Liverpool are the favourites for fourth, and I think you’ve got to say he’s right, given their pedigree and their recent European history. But in the dressing-room we’re determined to get higher than we are now. We know where we are now and we’ll try to get higher,” he told the Ham & High.

“I think the team has been going very well, certainly this season, but we need to take it to that next level, to improve that bit more.

“We maybe dropped one or two points where we could have picked up three, but everybody is determined that this will be a successful year.

“We were looking forward to the game against Liverpool all week so that was very disappointing. I expected it to be cold when I came over here and after two years I am used to it!

“I think I’ve come on since my time with Wigan, I definitely think I’ve been making reasonable progress,” he went on. “I think I have a very good understanding with Tom [Huddlestone] since I came to Tottenham, not only with Tom but with Jermaine [Jenas] as well when he plays. We now want to push on and get an even better understanding.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I agree with Wilson Palacios, we have got an excellent squad of players and we are not currently playing in Europe this season or in the carling cup.

    With our current form, our goal should and only be to aim higher than fourth position.

    Let’s be positive about it, the points between the current top five teams in the league are very close this season.

    I feel the second and third position is there for the taking,
    Furthermore Spurs normally does better in the second part of the season.
    So let’s get behind the team and live the dream.

    T Army
