This week last year

Spurs are only one point behind the total of 33 that they had accumulated after their 26th Premiership game of last season. On 10th February, 2007, we lost 2-1 at Bramall Lane and it looked as if we stood no chance of qualifying for Europe.

As we all know Martin Jol's side went on a run of 12 matches during which they lost only to Chelsea (and that was the game played within 36 hours of playing in Seville) by a solitary goal.

The Spurs run-in this year once again will include Chelsea, who we are scheduled to play on March 19th, unless they face an FA Cup replay. We all look forward to a hearty gloat on that night!

Having already qualified for next year's UEFA Cup after our glorious day at Wembley last Sunday, the Premier League programme becomes less important, but starting at St. Andrews on Saturday (where revenge is required for their 3-2 win at The Lane in December) there are a number of eminently winnable games on the agenda. After all, the team that out-played Manchester United and Chelsea in February, needs fear no other team in the Premier League!

Another factor regarding league position is that this season, there is an 8 point gap between us and West Ham, whereas last season, we were within easier reach of the teams above us.

Having beaten Chelsea in the Carling Cup, Spurs have given those teams chasing a UEFA Cup League place another problem, as they now know that they will have to finish at least 6th - and that depends upon a top four side winning the FA Cup.
