With Gomes the latest Spur vowing to ensure we are not watching the Champions League 'from the outside next season,' every 90 minutes that we endure each week provides us, the fans, the opportunity to argue and decide where they believe Spurs will sit come full time of the Birmingham game. We're usually left bewildered as we beat Arsenal in their back garden for only then to struggle up at Blackpool and Wolves. Struggle is a strong word but 1 point from 6 screams louder than anything else.
With our growing improvement falling in the same time constraint as City's spending, it is inevitable that we've had to work harder to ensure we are amongst the best and are still in the fight for Europe's lucrative competition once more next season. This, despite exploiting successfully Liverpool's drop from Champions League winners to Europa League battlers and moving in to set up on the turf in the top 4 that they had nestled comfortably in for the last few years before last season.
So, where will we finish? We have a Champions League squad although we sit in 5th spot and the pessimistic view acquired from years of misery in my lifetime is proving to be the driving force in believing that this is where we'll sit come the end of May; this closely followed with folded arms, grumpy faces and a whole summer of Modric, Rafa and Bale linked with 50 clubs a piece.
With City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool still to face, you could say it's in our own hands and we should look to take advantage of these opportunity's. Although, Blackpool illustrated that we don't have the biggest hand when it comes to grabbing golden chances.
But you never know what you're gonna get with Spurs. That's what you've got to love. Haven't you?
