“It’s only Spurs” – Sky Sports pundits predict Man United should beat Spurs this coming weekend
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur has the opportunity to take control of their future next weekend when they travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United. The Red Devils occupy fourth place in the fight for the final top-four spot. 

Despite their hiccups over the past few weeks, Spurs are in a position to come away with the fourth spot and clinch UEFA Champions League for next season. In a discussion on Sky Sports, the round table of pundits spoke about which team is playing in Europe’s top competition next season. 

Former United stars Roy Keane and Gary Neville think The Red Devils still can obtain qualification for next season’s Champions League.

“If Man United don’t finish in the top four, it’s going to be even harder to attract a top manager,” Nevile said. “If you’d have said a few months ago Arsenal could finish ahead of Man United; you would have been locked up. Amazing, a big turnaround for them, but United could still do it.”

“I still think United could do it (get fourth place). I don’t trust Arsenal fully. Manchester United have still got to go to Arsenal; there’s a long way to go. United have got to beat Tottenham next week.”

Keane replied, “It’s only Spurs.” Nonetheless, Neville did respond by saying, “they’ve got Conte as manager though.”

If Tottenham needs any motivation for how big this upcoming matchup is this coming Saturday, Keane and Neville are providing it to them. Spurs pulled off an impressive road win a couple of weeks ago at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City; they’ll look to see if lightning strikes twice in the same city.

The problem with the ex Man U players who are now pundits is that they cannot accept other teams being successful, they behave like spoilt kids, throwing insults at everyone thinking they have the right to say whatever they like.
I think the level of punditry in the game now has fallen way down the pan, and every ex player is churning out verbal garbage offering little in constructive criticism, with sky and talksh1te being the biggest culprits.
Keane was embarrassing on sky last night and I really do not see what the new darling of football punditry, Micah Richards brings to any worthwhile debate, and don’t let me start on Jamie.

Keane has some front criticising managers and coaches when he’s failed at both. Nevilles the same. Easy to sit there giving it large. Very different outcome when you’re doing the job.

Both of them are failures. Best ignored IMO. Redknapp too. He’s just bitter and twisted when it comes to Spurs.

Keane is like some of the people i worked with very quick to say what rubbish some one else was at doing their job BUT given the chance to do said job when person was on leave all ways turned the chance down. Re Reknapp he s another poor soul who had to “slum” it at Spurs

Arrogant bar stewards would be a fair description.

Arsenal are fourth, six points ahead of us having played the same number of games as us. Those defeats at home to Southampton and Wolves were massive as was yet another ambition-less transfer window in January.

I still stick by my Goon/Manure/Eel Munchers/Melts prediction.

More than happy to amend it if I see something especially in the Melts

We’ve got 3 games in hand on those immediately above us. We are currently in 7th position. On current form, 3 games in hand is worth … well… 3 points. Those extra 3 points would leave us in … 7th position still.
