Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
It looked at one point last night that all the results would go against us. But, it shouldn't matter what the other teams do - the problem is that now it does. 4th is ours to lose and 3rd is now the Woolwich bunch's to lose.
Again, I didn't think we were 'that bad' last night (and thought overall that we may just - just - have deserved a win), but there seemed to be a lack of pace to our game that made it look relatively comfortable for Stoke to deal with.
I still don't get this '2nd half' of the season issue with goals. We've now seen the same trait over the past two or three seasons and I can't for the life of me see what the problem is. Maybe it's Bale thinking he's the goalscorer rather than the provider? Teams getting realising how to handle us? I originally thought it was the VdV affect - but that doesn't explain why the 'main strikers' just don't seem to be on form.
That game's gone, onto the next and as 'arry says, there's a few more twists and turns left in the season.
well,i have been a spurs supporter since 1948.....and to me this sadly,familiar territory
they lift you to the heights.....then drop you down again ....losing to teams that they should beat comfortably.....get ready for a roller coater ride....mr muamba may not be the omnly one having a heart attack.....here is hoping for a happy ending

As long as we play well Fab (and win of course), I don't really care if it's the Chavs or Swindon. You have to play them all in a season.
If you want to be in the top 4, you have to play consistently well and show you're not afraid of the so called big teams and be able to eek out results against the lesser teams even when you're not playing so well.
I still don't quite think we have the belief - but that comes with time - the longer we stay near the top the stronger the belief becomes in the players and supporters. The 'feel the force' moment.
Seems to be that Spurs are just unlucky at the moment.
But I do keep noticing a trend with our conceded goals that should be addressed. Many of them are headers, from crosses, corners and free kicks. Why aren't the defenders clearing these high balls?

it seems that spurs have had some back luck nearing the end of the season , and arsenal have had some bad results at the start of the season. this happens. your priority is to beat chelsea saturday and that will give you a good buffer of 8 points. you really cant afford to lose this match, also city beating them has still left you with a 5 point gap.still 9 games to go, so spurs really need to get winning games. myself i think your get 4th but chelsea will fight all the way
