Gladys tells me that the fall out from Saturday lasted well after the game and recommenced a pace on Monday.
Whatever Poch said publicly about character building wasn’t the half of it. He wasn’t happy and the players had a frank exchange of views with him and each other.
Is that it then, the amor has been cleared and it’s now all all systems go?
Chance would be a fine thing however while Spurs have been in a coma, the opposition have been well and truly at it.
Sam Allardyce hans;t mucked about: “We’re not getting too carried away. Delivering 13 points from a possible 15 is an outstanding feat from where we came from and what position we were in.” Weren’t;t they written off? They couldn’t have got the memo. Suddenly the Toffees are 6 points behind us.
Leicester City have been quite storing the away the points. Their recent 0-3 fiasco at home to Palace ended a 5 game unbeaten run that included us.
Immediately above us are Burnley. I wonder what fault Spurs fans will find with them? They too lost just one game in their last 6.
And so to the Arsenal. Just two wins from their ;last half dozen games has been just enough to keep us and anyone else at bay. Until now. Christmas scheduling will shine a more intense light upon them.
Liverpool rather irritatingly appear to have got their act together. Their unbeaten of 9 games goes back to bizarrely the first game after we whupped ’em 4-1 in October.
Chelsea and the two Manchester Clubs are not going to implode, disband or otherwise. So it the competition for that last Champions League spot consists of us and handful of other unreliable sides all vying for a chance.
Spurs to win the Champions League? The bookies don’t believe so. We’re priced at somewhere between two and three times less likely to win than the usual suspects.
Any positive forecast requires something rather seismic to occur.
