I keep reading comments from awfully well meaning types this morning saying that at the beginning of the season they would have taken fourth.
Wow. How noble. But more to the point, what a really odd thing to say.
In isolation, finishing fourth is a good thing – no; an excellent thing. Champions League football and peck on the cheek from the Prom Queen. So what if another team outside the top four wins the Champions League and nudges us out? What are the odds?! You can’t legislate for crazy, madcap things like that happening. Can you?
Well you can.
Because this finish wasn’t in isolation to anything. To assert otherwise is insane. Not optimistic, not naive but just common or garden bonkers.
Given that Spurs weren’t struck down with any season wrecking injuries or suddenly faced teams that revolutionised football the flushing of the 10+ point advantage is why we’re all now nervously making pro Bayern noises.
Some of you can’t cope with the reality of the situation. You’re the same lemmings that haven’t noticed that since he’s run out of exit doors that Arry has started calling us, ‘us’ again and not referring to us in the third person.
What happened to this Club this season is nothing shy of scandalous.
And now we have the rogue playing the health card as many do when they’ve run of legitimate reasons why people should bother paying them any attention. He’s saying he might not got to the Euros with the BBC because of his trials and tribulations. Ooh my heart, ooh me tax case. Ooh naff off you chancer.
“I want Bayern to beat Chelsea, whether Frank plays or not.
“He knows there’s no love lost. My allegiance is Tottenham only. I want Tottenham in the Champions League next year.
“I’ll be rooting for Chelsea I want to see an English team win it anyway and I think they can do it.”
Arry Redschnapps April 21st 2012
“If people get carried away with what Tottenham should achieve, they need a reality check.”
Arry, the only reality check people want is the THFC Board to replace you with one of those orange Keepon things off the EDF advert …or something equally competent.

Moyes said it all for me on MOTD last night “I don’t see anything to celebrate about finishing 7th. I want to finish first”
And then of course Moyes went on to say “We have been brought up that you finish in first and maybe, in the Premier League, if you get the Champions League or even if you finish in Europe.” He adds that if he had finished seventh and got Europe next year, that would have been worth celebrating.
Maybe next time you should actually listen to his entire sentence instead of jumping on the first few words.
Fair enough. I still want us to be first – and I’m not advocating for Moyes to take over at WHL. Liverpool are gone, probably Chelski too and question marks about Wenger and Ferguson longevity. We have to be relentless with improvements in stadium, squad and league placing.
I hear pat rice is available.
I hear Pat Rice is off to take up impersonating Elton John full time now, made him more money and gave him more satisfaction
Mick Jagger as well?
MRS Doubtfire he looks like a granny,keep him away from Rooney.
I said it before and I’ll say it again…Anyone happy with this team finishing fourth is blinkered beyond comprehension. The top is the target and any failure to get as close that as talent and guile will allow is, well, a fail. This culture of mediocrity needs to go and we need no ghost come from the grave to tell us where to start.
You’ve said that before……..
‘It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory.’
what part of this statement does he not understand?
Assuming for the moment that Levy has decided to dispense with his services, just how soon can we expect the announcement to be made? It’d be a real kick in the teeth to see Villa nick Lambert from under our noses if Harry is to go.
We didnt win 4th. We lost 3rd.
We lost it by conspiring to throw away a 10 point lead to our most hated sneering rivals in a manner both embarrassing and pathetic even for us. We have also possibly yet got the added joy of watching our champions league spot handed to the most despicable racist scum bag of all football clubs.
Yeah, im happy with 4th. Its better than fucking Christmas.
You are right, ” even for you”.
