The benefit of dazzling form still eludes our team, but we probably ask for too much. Spurs have withstood the considerable pressure that is mounting as the season draws to its exciting climax. Certainly, it has the potential to be our most successful and rewarding league season for many years.
Spurs have won three of their four games, and only lost at Chelsea in circumstances too painful to recount.
Our win at St. Andrews was the most convincing, but was that result put into perspective by Liverpool's 7-0 thrashing of Steve Bruce's side within days of our visit?
There's no question about who is the player of this month for Spurs. It has to be Robbie Keane, who really has displayed the greatest class. His opener against Blackburn was blissful, especially as Robbie Savage was one of the opponents left in his wake, as OUR Robbie advanced upon his objective.
I have fully extolled the virtues of Robbie in the match report for the West Brom game, but I was minded to think of the famous Rudyard Kipling poem......"IF".....in relation to the two goals that gave us all three points against West Brom:-
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs ............
Here is Robbie Keane's scoring record for us since his arrival in 2002:-
Pld Sub Gls
2002-3 31 1 13
2003-4 37 3 16
2004-5 26 15 14
2005-6 20 11 13
TOTAL 114 30 56
(as at 28.03.06)
It's a superb record, and in amongst those goals you will find plenty of real gems. Apart from those mentioned above, his excellent late equaliser at Villa Park this season comes to mind, to illustrate the importance of Keane's goals.
Robbie has surely earnt the description of "Pure Genius". May he and his colleagues maintain their prowess in April, when the games get progressively tougher. When I write the April review, we may know our fate, as there will be just one match to play.
COME ON YOU SPURS!
