Man U v. Spurs 05/14/17

 

Well…. What can we say about this season? We know for sure that the title isn’t possible w/ Chelsea clinching today, especially with our loss at the Hammers last Friday. Would this have ultimately changed the outcome? delayed the inevitable? Chelsea had a strong year. The Spurs did extremely well. We have to appreciate the improvement in the club given that the Spurs racked up the highest point total of all EPL teams over the last two years. We also understand this means that it has amounted to a 3rd place last year and a 2nd place finish (yet to be assured) this year.

Sunday represents the Spurs last game at the Lane. They are also undefeated at the lane this year, against a Red Devils side that are fighting towards Europa league glory to likely clinch their champions league spot after an important win against Celta Vigo.

When you are at this stage in the season what do you expect? The Spurs have Champions league locked up. Man U appear to have their mind set on Champions league requiring a different route. The Spurs could stay undefeated in a sentimental final at the Lane.

Three games left, and what to play for. The final at the Lane, two away games (Leicester, and Hull)

The Spurs starting XI will be as we usually expect. Sonny, fresh off play of the month honors (as was Manager Poch). Man U had their not losing streak snapped last week at Arsenal and hampered with a number of injuries. It’s hard to see them coming out with a great result.

Unlike the previous year, I believe we’ll come out and get the 3 points and confidently finish in second place. The only team that provided any real challenge to Chelsea who had a remarkable run mid season that helped carried them through. The most significant difference is the slow start (relatively speaking) where they will rue the 1 point ties that had them slow out of the gate. Let’s hope they continue to build on this at Wembley for next season..

Oh when the Spurs go marching in… To Dare is to Do.
