They’ve dropped 7 to Fulham Leeds and Newcastle recently...

Leeds W
Wolves W
Villa W

You are way too optimistic
You'll draw at least once in the 3 fixtures above.

Leeds are much better than any of those sides though, plus they basically played their second team against Fulham because they had a CL game that week

They've dropped a lot of points against shiiite sides this season but I dunno if you'd say results like that are to be expected

We basically need everything to go our way to a tee which is never the position you want to be in

I think we'll end up being a good few points shy

For sure - I’m not betting my mortgage on the above - like I said, for S&Gs.

For us to get top four we HAVE to go on an epic run regardless of what any other team does. Knowing Spurs, other teams WILL drop enough points, but we’ll collapse when we can’t afford to the most

Pretty much just said the same thing tbh

Spurs to win all their games and everyone else to drop points looks very likely. Good article

I don’t know why some people do it to themselves.
Top 4 was gone months ago. In fact, when was the last time we were actually IN the top 4? Christmas if I were to hazard a guess. Been chasing 6 or 7 teams for months and not going to happen with a handful of games to go. The annoying thing is that it was there for the taking this season. Most teams have been very inconsistent.

We may have had a chance had Levy got rid of Jose one game sooner. Think we would have beaten Everton under Mason and given ourselves 2 more points than we have now. 3 points behind Chelsea with those fixtures left would be pretty doable.

posted on 3/5/21

Yeah I can only echo most of the above comments. I would love to see it but I can't see us beating Leeds right now. They'll run us ragged.

That said I wouldn't mind betting on the Spammers completely bottling it. Fifth is definitely there for the taking

Top 5

Nothing is ever set in stone in football. Spurs have no cup distractions. Both Chelsea and Leicester do. I wouldn't put it past Spurs to win their last four games, then it will be who drops points above them. Some have to play each other, so they cannot both win.

Under those circumstances, I head to the spare room with my iPad 👀. Purely to converse on 606 of course.

Of course, these sort of posts are always done just for fun, but for me, beating Leicester on last day to leapfrog them into 4th would result in the best day since my kids were born.

Their fans have become way too mouthy in recent times, with no real history of success to back it up. Just a freak title and a couple of ok league campaigns.
Egg on these people's faces would be very enjoyable.

That said, shouldn't Utd get docked like a minimum of say 15 points for yesterday's inability to control their local idiots, leaving their front door unlocked plus another 5 points just for Gary Neville active support fot their actions ?

My favourite bit is that united should get docked points because a former player sided with fans. The rest was good, but that bit was great.

Loving Bale's little digs at Jose.

Everton and Newcastle results facked us. Win either of those and it would have been on. If we win all 4 we have a chance due to our GD, but we won’t win 6 league games in a row.

posted on 3/5/21

If we were to somehow to win all 4 games I think that would sneak 4th. However, there is a minute chance of that happening.

It would be nice to beat Leeds next week and City beat Chelsea to keep things interesting, but Leeds will be a very tough match and I would be surprised if we beat them.

And that one post sums up why Spurs as a club and an entire fanbase will always be a bunch of no mark runner up bottlers. Finishing fourth would give you the best day since your kids were born, to exact some some of imaginary revenge on a season where you didn't even come close to winning the title and ended up finishing third.

Leicester spent longer at the top of the Premier League in that one season than Spurs have done since the Premier League was formed. And yet the salty bitter tears still flow.

Wonderful.

I think if you write an article like this then there's no point unless you assume we will beat Leucester.

Both above us have the cup final and CFC have the UCL SF so this wil have an impact.

I have always felt Leiceater are our target as we play them last and their tricky run in, but we kinda blew our chances when we failed to beat NUFC then lost to UTd. 3 points there would have had us 4 points behind with much better fixtures to play.
