Tottenham preview

In light of the comments on the recent post on the former-Thai PM, perhaps this preview should centre around the political and humanitarian fall-out from Sunday's game at White Hart Lane - perhaps a City win could affect the outcome of the Labour leadership?

Well, it would be more interesting to write than putting something together about a game that has only minimal interest on a large scale due to Tottenham requiring a point to qualify for the UEFA Cup.

In light of recent events (both on and off the pitch) it is seemingly the case that the club and everyone connected (mainly the fans) just wants the season to end. Once the spectre of relegation had lifted it is fair to say we have been stuttering towards the end of season, turning in some inept performances, continuing our goalless home form and enduring off and on pitch incidents which have seen plenty of negativity come our way.

As for Sunday's game, Tottenham will undoubtedly be favourites and I fully expect them to get at least the point they require. Team wise, not many options jump out at Pearce but it may well be the case that Stephen Jordan and Trevor Sinclair feature in what would be their final games in a Blue shirt whilst Paul Dickov may well beat Adrian Heath's season of futility back in the early 90's.

Spurs have no such problems selection wise, but are unlikely to feature Hossam Ghaly following his shirt throwing antics against Blackburn this week.

So, another season draws to a close and I don't expect it end on a positive note to be honest. Interestingly though, we need five goals to equal the 1995/96 record low of 33 goals.

Could this be the day that the 5-2 prediction finally comes in?
