Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premiership Season
for 2009-2010 - Match 14

The last week-end that Spurs won and Arsenal lost was erm - last week! Once upon a time we used to greet such events as a rarity, but hopefully we will learn to regard such occasions as normality. A Spurs win/Arsenal loss situation also occurred on the week-end of 29th-30th August, so that's two out of fourteen so far then! Alright, I know we didn't win this week, but it just felt like we won at Villa Park on Saturday, and we are above them in the league table again!

Ryan Giggs (36 on Sunday 29th November, 2009) became the 17th player to score 100 Premier League goals on Saturday. Amongst those already beyond the magic 100 mark are Robbie Keane with 121 to his name, and within reach of 100 Premier League goals for Spurs alone. Jermain Defoe is also within reach of joining the 17.

Portsmouth's plight at the foot of the table looks increasingly desperate. This time last year Spurs were on the up and up with 15 points, whilst West Brom (eventually relegated of course) had 11 points. Not that we should worry about them too much (I do worry about the morale of our own Jamie O'Hara) but they do have to play Chelsea away and the gooners and Liverpool at home before the year is out.

Arsenal are at home to Stoke next Saturday, so they'll probably be above us before we face Everton away, but Liverpool face a tricky trip to Ewood Park, where I doubt they'll manage a three goal margin that could put them above us too. Our trip to Everton is also tricky of course, but if we want to stay in the top four we need to win these games. A point would do the job though!

Your Spurs man of the match in this week's game was Niko Kranjcar, with Michael Dawson running him a very, very close second.

Finally may I refer you to a book, author and cause well worthy of your attention? it is the story of Del Deanus, a former Spurs Junior, now in his thirties but suffering terminal illness with Motor Neurone Disease. 4 from every book sold will go to The Motor Neurone Disease Association.
