Whilst I am a fully paid up miserable old tart, it does make me grin that Spurs are in a position to hammer a big nasty nail into Chelsea’s coffin this weekend, and pretty much bury their chances of Champions League football. Sure, this won’t the game that decides their fate but we have an distinct opportunity to play our part.
Unlike Pochettino, the Blues gaffer doesn’t mind letting people know what he’s up to, he told PA Sport “Our target for this final (stretch) of the season is to take a place in the Champions League and reach the final of the FA Cup and, this season, try and win it.” None of this mealy mouthed round the houses cobblers from old Conte. Everyone knows that at Antonio’s level the gun is permanently against his head, so why play games?
It’s been a hell of a long time since Spurs won at Second Hand Fridge, in fact the last time was prior to the inception of the Premier League, in February 1990. To provide some stark contrast, Conte was a 20-year-old midfielder playing for Serie A side Lecce then, while our man Harry Kane, who is a major doubt for the game with ankle ligament damage, was not born!
