10 Reasons Tottenham MIGHT Win the League

I emphasise the word 'might' before oppo fans have a dump in their trousers. I realise we are a longer shot than some other teams and that we are 7 points off top. Anyway here goes:


1. We are only 7 points off top with 54 to play for. Entirely summountable.

2. We have the best defensive unit in the league (Lloris, Walker, Toby, Verts, Rose, Wanyama). We have the best fullbacks and in Toby the leagues no1 CB.

3. We have played all of the current top 10 away, except Liverpool and City. We play these two before Europa restarts, which will aid our competitiveness in those games. Our remaining fixtures are therefore as favourable as you could hope for at just past the midway point.

4. We have the experience our young squad gained from last years unexpected challenge, a title tilt will not be unchartered territory anymore.

5. We have negotiated a prolonged period of poor form fairly unscathed; our only two defeats this season are away at Chelsea and away at Utd, games you'd write off anyway.

6. Our attacking players are coming into form; Eriksen scoring & assisting, Alli has 7 goals in 4 games, Kane has found his shooting boots, Sissoko looks more settled, Son scoring.

7. Our squad options are good; Trippier is playing really well, Dier is an excellent utility man, Wimmer more than capable, Winks looks a real prospect, N'Koudou looks pacey and lively.

8. We have flexibility with formations; 352 or 4231 both suit the players we have, and can be adapted to suit the type of opponent.

9. We still have Lamela, one of last seasons most instrumental players to return, which will be like getting a new player.

10. We have shown our quality; twice we have ended the winning runs of the in form league leaders, comfortably beating City and Chelsea 2-0 each. The power, fitness and athleticism of our current team, combined with a good balance of forward options is there for all to see.


To temper this here's a few reasons we might not win it: form of others in top 6, Europa League, Pulis, going all Spursy, lack of contribution from Janssen.

COYS!

Very rarely do, but if we do slip up(in probably the most competitive league season in years) then it would be an improvement and give us confidence to win more PL titles

We'll be even stronger next season as will United and City.

Spurs missed their chance

Spurs had chance to win the league last season.

But Poch block is too one dimensional to win the league this season.

The winners will need more than physical hard pressing football. They will need creativity too

You've scored 3 more goals than us ffs

You won't ever win the league with Levy in charge.
