I think I was quietly confident that we would win this match, Spurs have become an ultra defensive team, Italian 1980s team type of defence, the meanest defence in the league. Unfortunately this means that the cavalier excitement has gone. We’re awful to watch. Honestly, its paint drying. However, we are actually in the top position! Technically that means we are the best team in the whole of England. This is not something that can be sniffed at. At the start of the season not a single pundit thought Spurs would finish in the top #4 and if I’m honest I didn’t think it either, I was hoping and dreaming for 4th, whereas my brain was saying most likely 5th. So to be where we are is a huge achievement and although we have a great many matches left before things draw to a close, I am confident that we will finish in the top #3 now. Which is great, we get to play in the Champions League next season and our team will be far better bedded in and better drilled. I’m still concerned by the boringness of the display, however I am hoping this is only because the quality of our recent opponents are high so we don’t take any risks whereas when play slightly more inferior teams we can be more expansive and drop the tortuga tactics. We’ll see I guess.
