Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premiership Season
for 2009-2010 - Match 32
Going for a Premier League record next Saturday!
Thanks to Paul Yarden, who prepares "My Football Facts", for his assistance in the preparation of this page

Spurs win against Portsmouth was their fifth consecutive Premier League win and equalled the club record during the Premier League era. This figure has been achieved three time before in the Premier League years.

The last occasion was quite recently, under the leadership of Martin Jol in the 2006-07 season, when we beat Everton, Bolton, West Ham, Watford and Reading in consecutive league games played between late February and early April. We finished fifth, but with five points less than in the previous "Lasagne-Gate" season.

In November and December 2004, also under Martin Jol, we beat Middlesbrough (H), Blackburn (A), Man City (A), Southampton (H) and Norwwich (A).

The other time we managed five consecutive Premier League wins was in the first season of the Premier League, when Terry Venables was in overall charge, but Doug Livermore and Ray Clemence were assisting. This was a 42 game season, and Spurs finished 8th. The five game winning run came in January and February 1993, with wins against Crystal Palace, Southampton, Everton, Leeds and QPR. It is interesting to note that Everton feature in all three runs.

Spurs have a long, long way to go to match their all time best run of consecutive wins. That was at the end of the 1959-60 season, and start of the Double season, when they won no less than 13 games on the trot!

A win up at Sunderland next Saturday will set a new club record of six consecutive Premier League wins. Of course teams at the level to which we currently aspire achieve such figures on a regular basis, so we have plenty of improvement to make!

Interestingly enough, Harry Redknapp's record for the second half of the 2009-10 season is now 24 points from the 12 matches played - an average of exactly two points won per game.

Our current points haul of 58 after 31 matches is a new club Premier League record (beating the 55 points set in 2005-06) and we're 20 points ahead of what we had amassed at the same stage last season.
