    Agreeing with all of this, it's still somewhat comfortable going into a weekend knowing that we're definitely going to lose. 90s and early 2000s-style perverse relief.

    The Arsenal game really hurt because nobody expected to crumble and lose that badly, but not expecting anything of this weekend!
    Amazingly pleased we got a point! With 8 games to go and a 5-point cushion we surely can't mess this up. Right?

    Especially as we've finished our "hard" games and Chelsea still have Arsenal and Liverpool to play. Right?

    We'll finish top four. Right?

    Please...

    Still want 3rd tbh. Will be very happy indeed with 4th but I don't think 3rd is totally out of reach.

    At the start of the season I thought we'd be 6th behind United, City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool (not necessarily in that order). So to finish 4th would be amazing.

    Third is definitely still on, Arsenal still play City and Chelsea and there's only a three point gap. But we're going to have to win all our remaining games. Doable for sure, but not in our current form.

    Do you know when Lennon's going to be fit again?

    Quality atmosphere in the spurs end today, especially second half. Some excellent songs too, notable 'He'll eat what he wants.' Hope spurs get 4th if not 3rd.

    He'll either come on as a sub against Bolton or be ready for Swansea, I reckon.

    First time I saw few Tottenham fans on the train home today. Good to know we are a growing flock now. I'm still used to seeing alot of glory Utd supporters in my area as well as Arsenal fans. And I'm from near Tottenahm for gods sake!

    Also......Wemberrellyyyyyy. Again. Please I hope we don't flop the semi's again. Pretty please.

    I've come to realise that there are loads of anomalies when it comes to assuming that someone will be Spurs or Arsenal based on geography. Obviously you have the areas around Arsenal like Islington, Camden, Holloway, Highbury and Archway where there's next to no chance of a Spurs fan's presence but then areas closer to us will be full of Goons. Seems as though anywhere to the immediate west of Tottenham will have a good chance of having Arsenal fans, not to mention the south and south west. Wood Green's annoyingly full of Gooners despite being a stone's throw away from us. My cousin's one of them despite living virtually on the Enfield side of the A10 and therefore far closer to Tottenham.

    The A10 seems to be the divider then, even in Hertfordshire, though it thins out as you go north. I used to live in St Albans and remember it being very much Arsenal but Stevenage apparently has more Spurs fans. Still, we're in the general minority, hardcore and armchair alike

    In other news, Wemberleeeeeeeeey, Wemberleeeeeeeeey, we're the famous Tottenham Hotspur and we're going to Wemberley!

    Hmm yeah, even down Seven Sisters station, where I used to work near, there were very little football fans near the area. So I do actually wonder where all the Spurs fans are based. I rarely go to socialise or whatever in my area, so I'm never around to actually see, but it would be good to spot a few spurs fans on match days or wherever I'm about. I always tend to meet Arsenal fans or glory Utd supporters. Forever alone Spurs fan.

    Spurs such a disappointing choke, I can't believe your surrendering your cl spot to Chelsea, weren't you considered title contenders sometime ago? can't blame people for not taking you seriously even though you were 2 points behind us.

    Well Tottenham this is one of your supposed easy games and you're making a right old meal of it. Lucky not to be two nil down at half time tbh.

    Irony of an Arsenal fan berating a club about 'easy' fixtures.

    Its delicious.

    It's hardly "choking" is it? In the grand scheme of things, the self-destruction of Man City and Chelsea is far worse. Spurs are more of an inevitable disappointment. I would say that most Spurs fans have secretly accepted being caught by Chelsea; but are ready to count coming 4th as a huge surprise victory.

    This season, it's not like we've plumbed the depths of vanPersie FC, who were ready to storm the Bastille early in the season over Wenger.

    Actually that's the point I was trying to make. There are no 'easy' fixtures, but most Spurs fans I have spoken to recently think their easier run in gives them the nod for third.

    Some Arsenal fans spoke of a challenge before the QPR game.

    Fans be fickle creatures.

    Yes over the season we are treated to plenty of bull**** from fans of all clubs. Premiership wouldn't be the same without it!

    This Spurs team is so finely balanced, if you remove either of the wingers or Ade up front they just look like a different team.
