Tottenham 2 City 1

I guess you can only cling onto something for so long before it gives way, which fairly sums up the past few weeks as we held onto the hope of that final seventh position in the table which would provide a route into Europe next season.

As it is, todays 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane mathematically ends any prospect of us finishing that high in the table and leaves a straight fight between Tottenham and Fulham for that final place.

To try and illustrate any positives feels like an attempt to clutch at straws, so the plus points of a start for Petrov and a goal for Bojinov seems somewhat of an ambitious attempt to take something from the defeat.

Another away defeat then, and from reading the reports and post match comments etc they could well have come from any number of away games this season - a hard luck story, chances to win the game but ultimately contributing to our own downfall.

There is the old saying that 'the table doesn't lie', and our current position clearly shows that over the course of the season we ultimately haven't been good or consistent enough, with what seems a very lengthy season now almost coming to a close before the inevitable post mortems begin.
