A few weeks ago, I was sitting behind a cocky Arsenal fan at the Spurs - Arsenal reserves' game at Stevenage, whilst he conducted a number of phone calls, including an undertaking to an associate that he would be able to get the Real Madrid Champions' League semi-final tickets! How sad that his dreams were shattered last night, and that his team have been knocked out of two trophies in the last week. Where's your Double/Treble gone now, gooner? I would also just like to mention that Spurs are a North London side who HAVE been to the semi-finals of the Premier European Competition. Alright, it was a long time ago, but in the summer, I hope to run a series looking at more of Spurs glorious history.

What has any of the above got to do with the Everton preview, I hear you ask? Well, quite a lot actually. Chelsea started last night with the team they fielded at White Hart Lane last Saturday, when they narrowly won a game where we were cheated out of one, possibly two penalties. My point is that's how close Spurs COULD be to achieving something, if only they could apply themselves throughout the season, and not just for the big games.

From one team in blue that we cannot beat in the league for love or money, to another, who must hate the sight of us, as much as we do Chelsea. Everton are a team we have beaten consistently since the Premiership was established, having lost just one game in those 12 years. The fact is that the two Easter games are crucial for both these sides, moreso for the home side, who, when they face Leeds at Elland Road on Tuesday next, COULD be facing the prospect of being level on points with Leeds. That's assuming we do beat The Toffees, and that Leeds get a result at Blackburn on Saturday. On the other hand, of course, if Everton can beat us, then they would climb above us in the table, and we would face Man City on Monday in a state of advanced trepidation!

Spurs are on a losing streak, which they will be despearate to end, whilst Everton's defeat at St. James' Park was their first in 6 league games. So, on form, the home side has the upper hand, but they will be missing Ferguson who is serving his suspension early at the request of David Moyes, as he (Ferguson) claimed back trouble would keep him out of the Easter programme. Pity about that, as Spurs fans would have loved to have baited him about his spat with Steffen Freund which has led to a 4 match ban from the FA. Rooney too will miss the Spurs game, so it will be Campbell and Radzinski up front, whilst Stubbs is struggling to be fit for this one.

It is sure to be a tense atmosphere for the TV match on Friday night, and I can't be confident about Spurs chances really, especially when we don't know which of our midfield creators will be fit for action, as Redknapp still nurses that split lip, and Anderton and Davies only returned to training recently. I'll take Spurs to win by the odd goal, which probably will not be as spectacular as Fredi Kanoute's 30 yard piledriver, scored in the 3-0 victory in October. My report will be posted mid-morning on Easter Saturday.
