The Big Question

Can Spurs break into the TOP THREE?

No, seriously, Jermain…

Jermaine Defoe 

It was a good Tottenham show against Man City last night, and certainly one that has reinvigorated the high hopes for the season after the spluttering mess against Wolves. So much so that Harry Redknapp appears to be dreaming of more than just a top four finish.

That’s right, how about a top three?

“I’ve said since the start of the season that the champions will come from Chelsea or Man United but after that it’s up for grabs.”

With Spurs now in fifth place, just two points behind Arsenal and Villa, things are hotting up at the top. But does his team have the consistency to pull out Man City performances week-in week-out, or is there always a savage Wolves one lurking in the shadows?

    As much as I love my spurs and their superior football, you just cannot count on them to beat the beatable sides on the regular.

    Never should have lost to stoke. Never should have lost to Wolves and never should have conceded 2 goals and missed a penalty in the 90th minute after being 0-2 up @ a then struggling Everton.

    Wherever we end up, i’ll be happy though. Some great performances this season. Even when we’ve lost we’ve played some great stuff. I hope for top 8 this year. If the other teams are as inconsistent as us then I could see top 4. Not top 3 though.

    Also has everyone forgotten Aston Villa’s colossal meltdown in the 2nd half of last season? I fully expect another but the press have been kissing Villa’s arse lately. Ahaha.

    I agree to some extent with you Anthony. The losses against Stoke and Wolves were really disappointing considering they were at home and I thought we should’ve bagged the win against Everton, but hoping for a top 8 finish is being a bit pessimist, remember we ended up 8th after a nightmare first half of the season, everyone thought we were going to relegate last season but Harry just picked up on the mess Juande Ramos left us … so to expect an 8th place finish again is a step backwards. I really think with no injuries for the rest of the season we might really crack top 4
