    Surely there must be another one of our run in opponents also having a week off - why not try the sensible option and move a game forward?

    I'm not sure its a disaster. We have a tough run coming up starting with Liverpool so a few extra days break in advance isnt the end of the world

    Typical isn’t it, the one long week we get for some tactical prep and the next league opponents are a team with no tactics to analyse other than hoofing it long and diving.

    That's a bold prediction! Might well come back and bite you in the ass.

    Likely to be a similar selection to the marine game, the a team will be focusing on the league match.

    If BA can get the van fixed of course.

    Can't believe we're 4 points off top after the run we've just had - wide open

    It’s why it’s frustrating

    It’s really frustrating but all clubs have had bad runs or are having bad runs. The only thing is, other clubs bad runs feel like bad runs of form and ours feels a bit like we’re being limited by the manager’s tactics. But maybe I’m saying that because I’m so close to our games and results.

    We could do with City having another run of dodgy results...

    In my view, City and Liverpool would finish above us 9 times out of 10 if you played this season repeated times from here. I'm therefore not really that bothered by their results - Man U, Leicester, Everton and Chelsea are greater threats to us IMO

    You’re not a proper Spurs fan.

    When the inevitable self destruction comes, the disappointment that is the very essence of supporting Tottenham Hotspur is more acute the higher your hopes were to start with.

    Im hoping for a league title. fudge it, I’m expecting a league title and we’re gonna win it by 10 points minimum.

    Only the West Ham equalizer was a one in a million shot, IIRC. There's been one or two masterclass goalkeeping performances too, I think.

    Yep
    Every one pretty much has been avoidable
    Yet we have been scoring too notch goals a lot of the time (and all goals are avoidable)

    I thought Vardy had and issue when I've watched Leicester in recent weeks. It gives them something to deal with as they have looked very settled with Tielemanns Maddison Albrighton all looking in solid form plus they've landed on their feet defensively in that the players that came in to replace their various injured defenders have all proved themselves to be more than decent.

    The amount of residual hope still around because we were top of the league briefly is ridiculous.

    We are P18 W9 D6 L3 Pts 33
    On December 16th 1996 under Gerry Francis we had the exact same record. No one was thinking of a title. We finished 8th that year.

    Just because we think we have signed a 'pact' to watch horrible football doesn't mean we will win something.

    Our next 5 are Liverpool (h), Brighton (a), Chelsea (h), West Brom (h), Emirates Marketing Project (a).
    We are more likely to be fighting to get into the Europa again than any title.

    I dont think that many people are realistically expecting a title challenge. CL football is the aim

    The hope is more due to the form of the sides above/around us - looking to be on course for a particularly low points total for 1st place this season, less than the Liecester season in fact, so we don't need to be that good
