Spurs playing away to QPR brought back some unhappy memories of last season and that 1-0 defeat, courtesy of old boy Adel Taraabt. While Tottenham will argue that we deserved the win, QPR parked the bus effectively and could have snatched the game with a prolific centre forward leading the line.

Last season’s loss came in the middle of a run of poor results that ultimately saw us lose third place and after the match Scott Parker, who had been an early substitute for the injured Sandro, said that the players were determined not to slip up again.

‘It’s in everyone’s mind because it’s happened before,” Scott said.

“We need to maintain our performances. We have some tough fixtures coming up but we’ve got some players coming back from injury. Hopefully we can freshen it up that way. I’m sure we’ll be fine.”

“We’ve lost some world-class players but we’ve added some too. Maybe we’ll learn from the last two years and stay strong.”

February has marked the start of a slump in recent seasons but as Parker states, the returns from injury means that at present, only two first teamers are on the physio’s bench. Meanwhile, Emmanuel Adebayor may be off to AFCON but overall the club seems to be in a much better position from which to maintain that Champions League Challenge.

  1. We will play better football without Ade in the team and defoe will thrive up there with someone to play through balls to him. Benny will slot back in for Sunday which opens up bale down the left again and spurs will come good over the next series of games.

    The obvious concern of Defoe being our only forward is a major worry and we will be kicking ourselves if he gets injured. That in itself would have us spurs fans worrying about last years capitulation repeating itself. Sign a forward FFS .

  2. We have had bad end of season runs the past two years and its cost us.

    We really need a couple of quality players (striker and creative midfielder) to add momentum, add competition for places, allow more rotation etc.

    Second half of the season planning starts now!!

  3. I dont think we’ve learnt anything from last season at Spurs we should have already signed negrado and the you son from korea to solve our striking problems and we should also have signed snieder or willian and i think that would have garenteed us qualifying for the champions league . If we slip up again this year then i think Daniel Levy and co-owners should sell the club to someone who has real ambition and dosent just think about money.

  4. maybe levy should learn and buy a quality player this month to see us finish strong – holtby is a great signing but thats for the summer we need a striker ade is a joke every spurs move that broke down against QPR was because of ade losing the ball or miss placing a pass – not to mention the chances he always misses
