    I think the position 12 games ago raised expectations.

    Hence the feeling of disappointment when the performances went to that of a relegation team. Another week and we’d have thrown it all away.

    Meh... Eriksen set piece goal, Lamela looking decent, hopefully no injury to Alli...

    Four consecutive top four finishes, CL football at our Pepsi Max, live life on the edge, Bowl next season. That is a tremendous achievement by the players, Pochettino, the coaching staff and Levy. Even if the league season finished with a whimper.

    On to the big one.

    It did raise expectations. Too high for me as I was hoping we could sustain a title challenge to the end. But perspective gives clarity and a bit of rationality to that. Averaging it out over the whole season, it's pretty good and not exactly unfair on us.

    Not for me. Sissoko has done it over the course of the season, without any rest....

    Everton and Tottenham are considering a swap move involving left-backs Lucas Digne and Danny Rose. Spurs are interested in French international Digne, but would only consider the move if Rose was part of the deal. (Star)

    We have now played an equal amount of draws in 4 games as we did at Wembley for 15. Statistics don't lie! Anyway, 4th and a CL final exceeds my expectations for the season by a margin. A fair few players has disappointed a bit as the season went on, but a lot of it can be due to the squad being paper thin. Sissoko player of the year, from constantly playing sh*t to never playing sh*t, that's some progress. Son 2nd, Vertonghen 3rd. Honourable mention to Harry Kane, just for being Harry Kane.

    Let’s not forget that we only got fourth becuase three other clubs had a total meltdown too. Yes, we’ve had a very good cup run and yes, it happens to be in the most exciting and prestigious cup competition possible.

    But other than that, we’ve been brick for a good couple of months, and it’s difficult to believe that a good rest for everyone involved is going to be a panacea.

    400% agree.

    It’s a worry a) as Poch must be tinkled hence all the leaving noises and b) doesn’t bode well for next season.

    A much needed refresh of the squad will hopefully refocus everything.

    Whilst I do not disagree with what you say when you factor in how well we did the first half of the season with the disruption to the side in the second half then I think we thoroughly deserved 4th minimum. I'd imagine we hardly played the same 11 players in the last 12 games which obviously has an impact on performance.

    Jeff Stelling knows fudge all. The four top leagues have 4 automatic qualification spots.

    It is expecting a lot for players who have hardly featured to come in and excel.

    Or in fact, to use any form of spreadsheet software.
