It wasn't the best performance, but there's every chance we'll turn it around at White Hart Lane. Although a part of me hopes we don't. Without the distraction, we'll be able to concentrate on finishing 4th or better, which realistically is the only thing that matters this season.

FWIW, having looked at the remaining fixtures, and added up the expected points, my best guess is that we'll finish 5th, a single point behind Liverpool.

Are you taking our well known ability to completely fuck things up against teams we shouldn't into consideration?

Ahem. I'm a Spurs supporter. We've got you beaten hands down on that front.

Well, at least nobody can call Liverpool boring this season.
We may have one of the worst defences in the league but dull we are most certainly not.

Surely it's Norwich you should be cheering on?

I rest my case. Ho hum. Top four was always going to be difficult, but I'd say it's completely out of reach now.

Yeah, but it was a bit of a struggle. It's the same old story for Yeovil- lots of graft but not much to show for it. A win's a win though! :)

I still think it may a bit of a push for you to get out of trouble.

As for the mighty Rovers, a massive win at Reading extended our unbeaten run to 5. An amusing thing I've noticed is that we haven't conceded a goal since our supposed best defender and captain Scott Dann jumped ship :lol:

Massive fortnight coming up with a derby away at Bolton this week and then a potentially explosive derby against the in-form dingles the week after. Here's hoping to stay undefeated at least through those two.

Oh, I'm under no illusions, we're basically already relegated. But at least we're keeping it entertaining down there, and at least we won't go down without a fight. Which is good, as around christmas time I thought we were going to fade without a trace. :P

Are you playing Millwall? :lol:


Already played them, and actually took 4 points from both games. They actually weren't even that rough, and the fans I met after the home match were pretty normal, decent guys who were nothing like the image that Millwall fans are given. That said...the Leeds fans I encountered were disgraceful human beings. :twisted:
