    It just shows how much power TV has - any sensible person would at least adjust these fixtures so that Spurs and Everton get a total of 7 days rest and Pool/City/Wolves are down to 8. There will always be some teams who have an easier Christmas period than others, but it would be nice if football's "governing" body would at least pretend to try to even it up.

    If we want to win the league title, we have to move into top of the league table first ! In the last 10 years, we have only been in the top of the league table 3 times/weeks. We were only top of the PL league table 2 times in August 2009 (Week 2 and 3) and 1 time in August 2014 (Week 2) which was Pochettino's first season as manager. Since then, we have never been top of the league table despite fighting for the league title and finishing in top 3 for the last 3 seasons.

    I think if we can move into the top of the league table and stay there for 3-5 weeks, we can stay there for a long time and go on to win the league for a few years ! For now, the first place seems like a jinx to us, just like the FA Cup semi finals. If we can break the jinx once, we can make it our own for a long time.

    Here are our weekly league positions since 2014/2015 :

    It is amazing and annoying how we didn't manage to be top the league table even once in 2016 and 2017 when we went so close to win the league title. For the record, we were the best team in 2017 despite Chelsea winning the league as we had the best attack(most goals scored), best defence(least goals conceded) and lost fewer games than Chelsea but Chelsea became champions because they won 4 games more than us.

    I wanted to try and quantify how much we have had to chop and change our team so far this season, due to injuries and other absences.

    The following table compares this season's Spurs with this season's Liverpool, last season's Emirates Marketing Project, 16/17's Chelsea and 15/16's Leicester (i.e. current table toppers / previous title winners).

    It counts a) how many players played at least 3,000 minutes, and b) the total number of PL minutes played by each team's most-played 8 players.

    (For Spurs and Liverpool this season I've scaled the numbers from 20 matches to 38 matches).

    upload_2019-1-1_13-39-50.png

    So basically: the numbers confirm that we've had to do loads of chopping and changing this season - more than any recent PL winners / leaders, particularly Chelsea and Leicester.

    Our penalty shoot out record now read, played 16, won 4, lost 12 ! Surely, no other team, not even England, have a worse penalty shoot out record than us in world football !

    25-May-84 UEFA Final (2L) 46,205 H Anderlecht D 1 - 1 Roberts (2-2 aggregate)
    (Spurs win the UEFA cup 4-3 on penalties)
    (Roberts=scored,Falco=scored,Stevens=scored,Archibald=scored,Thomas=saved)

    -------------------------------------

    We won our first ever penalty shoot out to win the UEFA Cup in 1984. But since then, we have lost every penalty shoot out in all the big matches, including 1 League Cup final and semi final each. We really need to start practising penalties ! Special mention to Lamela, as he has now been involved in 3 penalty shoot outs with us, winning 2 and losing 1.

    I've somehow become quite repulsed by the idea of a draw........rather just go kamikaze all out for a win. You just don't get anywhere with a draw.

    YES! I've said for years that a point is such a meagre return for a club trying to get in the top 4.
    Definitely worth going balls out for the win IMO.
    You know when a team goes into turbo overdrive for the last 5 minutes? Do that with 20 minutes to go, really push forward and go go go!

    We need a corners thread. That would be a fun place full of agreement, goodwill to all men (women/non-binary/gender fluid) and general bonhomie.

    Perhaps getting ridiculed by their countrymen for a lack of bottle during the international break might shake any complacency out of our squad...
