It was indeed a mixed week for Spurs and while some supporters remain unconvinced by yesterday’s 1-0 win against 10-man West Brom, three points is three points. And with Everton slipping up at home to Aston Villa, our lead in fourth place has been extended.

After the game, head coach Andre Villas-Boas declared that he was just happy to get those three points on the board.

“It was an important week for us with Norwich and West Brom away, extremely difficult matches,” AVB said on the club’s official website.

“We managed to get four points from those fixtures, get back to winning ways at West Brom and our team hasn’t lost since December in the Premier League.”

The win also saw us close the gap on Chelsea in third, after the Blues slumped to a 3-2 loss away to Newcastle.

“We also benefit from the weekend’s results and it’s put us in position to close in on third place and also release some of the pressure from behind us as well,” Andre added.

The one downside to the weekend was Arsenal’s win over Stoke but next up for Spurs is our home game with Newcastle, in Saturday’s televised early kick off, while Arsenal travel to Sunderland and Everton take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.

  1. Guys, if we needed any type of reminder about how well the club is doing look at the signing of Lewis Holtby as an example of the most astute bit of business you are going to see done. He is the bright end to a hard week. We needed a number ten more than anything else and now we have a guy with the brain and left foot of rafa and an engine and eagerness to bring us up a level going forward. Ade will enjoy playing with this guy so let’s hope he can get us a few goals from now on. Dempsey and Defoe are not up to the standard of the rest of the team and really are good impact off the bench at best in my opinion. We can’t have guys playing who consistently give the ball away in good positions. I see good things for us from now until the end of the season.

  2. I think the reason why we won’t make top 4 is because of our strike force. We already know what the Manchesters possess. Chelsea have Torres and Ba with many contributors. Arsenal have what it looks like a very impressive group moving forward as well. I’m not worried about Everton. We needed to address issues up front or I am worried we might not have enough goals in us even with Ade back. Defoe and Dempsey are ok, but I have never been too confident in their ability against a determined and organized side. I like the rest of the team, but not getting a legit striker hurts.
