Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premiership Season
for 2012-2013 - Match 33
Not a good week for non-playing Spurs

It was not a good week this week for Spurs, for whom the fates served up a rest after their gruelling penalty shoot-out defeat to F.C Basel last Thursday. We were due to play Chelsea last Sunday, but they were busy losing to Man City in the FA Cup semi-final.

Fulham might have beaten us a few weeks ago, but they couldn't put up a decent enough show at home to their true London rivals last night, losing 3-0, which put Chelsea back up to third place. Regarding Arsenal and Everton, their 0-0 draw on Tuesday night was probably the best result for us, as there was a risk that the gooners could have moved 7 points above us before we play Man City on Sunday. Arsenal play at Craven Cottage on Saturday. Perhaps Martin Jol can buck up his men for that Derby match to help us out.

We are in control of our own Premier League destiny, as we now have a game in hand over Arsenal, but of course, that game in hand is at Stamford Bridge (now fixed for May 8th), and we do have the little matter of the other "moneybags" team, Man City on Sunday.

The news that Gareth Bale is a doubt for Sunday (yet to be confirmed) does not help, and there is plenty of nail-biting to be done before the season ends. The fact that West Ham held Man Utd might help Spurs, because that title has not been clinched just yet, and Sir Alex Ferguson's side will be looking for something out of their game at The Emirates on 28th April.

Exciting, isn't it? For your reference, here is a summary of the remaining games for those teams in contention for a top four place:-


Chelsea (3rd)         Arsenal (4th)

Liverpool (A)         Fulham    (A)
Swansea   (H)         Man Utd   (H)
Man Utd   (A)         QPR       (A)
Spurs     (H)
A. Villa  (A)         Wigan     (H)
Everton   (H)         Newcastle (A)

Spurs   (5th)         Everton (6th)

Man City  (H)         S'derland (A)
Wigan     (A)         Fulham    (H)
S'hampton (H)         Liverpool (A)
Chelsea   (A)
Stoke     (A)         West Ham  (H)
S'derland (H)         Chelsea   (A)
Perhaps it is wrong to discount Liverpool, but one way or another, they will have a hand in the run-in, with home games against both Chelsea and Everton.
