In light of what I have learned this last few months Football is pretty trivial but I am going to hang onto it because a bit of triviality can put things back into perspective. My Tottenham had an amazing beginning to the season after getting thumped twice they went on a run of premier proportions but it all began going astray after that beginning in mid February with a terrible 0-0 draw at Stevenage in the FA Cup and we then went on to throw away what seemed to be an unassailable lead so now the fight for third place and an automatic place in the Champions league has gone down to the final day. Chelsea getting beat last night at Liverpool was a dream result for Tottenham fans because it ruled them out of finishing anywhere above 6th place and I hope Bayern win the Champions league that way fourth place will still be open. Sorry Chelsea but I couldn’t give a fuck to be honest.
The table is tight. Arsenal in 3rd with 67 points and +24 GD, us in 4th on 66 points and +23 GD and Newcastle on 65 in 5th and their GD doesn’t matter (unless they win 17-0!) We’re home to Fulham, Arsenal travel to West Brom and Newcastle travel to Everton. In terms of how we are going into the last day I believe it couldn’t look better for us with both our rivals having away games and us at home, but this is Football and anything can happen. Tottenham just have to win their game and that’s all there is to it but it is kind of scary with Martin Jol in charge at Fulham, this kind of omen often proves to make the difference, hopefully this time it won’t though!
We just have to win and hope other results go our way. So I will be praying for Everton and West Brom and watching Soccer Saturday this coming weekend with my undivided attention. COME ON YOU SPURS!
