We were the 9th best team in the league that season, it's in the books.

If Spurs had two of their games this week, ie Burnley and Sheff U, they’d need to win by a combined score of 6-0 to go ahead of us. They’d then need more points from Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City than we get from Chelsea, Liverpool, Brighton and Palace.

That's a lovely, comforting, step-into-a-warm bath way of looking at the run in.

We can definitely still screw it up, but based on what we're doing at the moment we really shouldn't.

Yeh I got a tingle in my loins from that also. Bottom line is I’d much rather be where we are than them. And if we were in their position I’d probably think it was done

We're 4/11 to finish in the top four, they're 13/5.

We're 1/4 with Paddy Power.

Two more wins and that will do it. No way on God’s green earth Spuds are overhauling that.

And if they do with that run in, they’ll probably deserve it.

I'd still begrudge it to them, but you're right.

I hope diddy Jamie Maddison is crying himself to sleep tonight following our win and Cov's penalty heartache.

We win our next two and it's all but done IF Spurs lose to Arsenal and Chelsea. Would mean they'd be 12 points off us so would have to beat Liverpool and Man. City to have a very remote chance of finishing above us.

Isn't there a thing about how Spurs always do surprisingly well against Man City?

But then that's offset by how there's a thing about how they always do surprisingly badly against Chelsea?

I think it's probably good that there's still a 3 way fight for the title. Whatever about the other two, I can't see Man City slipping up.

Absolutely.  Arsenal and Liverpool aren't going to win the league, but I don't want them going into a game against Spurs thinking that they can't win the league.

There were posters on here who thought Man Utd were dead certs to finish above us when they were 14/1 to finish top four and we were 13/8 or something.

Spurs will win some games, and lose some games. So will we. Both of us are capable of beating anyone else, as has been proven across this season.

6 points gap feels big though at this stage of the season, more so for them I'm sure.
