If spurs had europe this year they would be nowhere near CL positions in my opinion

We drew at Wham too and most thought it was a good result for us, isn't it the same for Spurs? Their game in hand is against Chelsea, not tonight's.

That's probably more due to the late equaliser and the injury time disallowed goal for them. It was a good point in the context of the game.

Had we taken the lead, let them equalise and then plodded around for sixty minutes we probably wouldn't have seen it as a good result.

Sure, but before both games a 1-1 apiece would be seen as the same for both teams and that's where I am with it. It's one game less for them to gain ground on us, I just don't trust Chelsea to do the business against them in their spare game.

Well, it's better for us than them winning, isn't it?

They could have gone above us and they failed.

A win for us tomorrow night would really set the cat amongst the fighting chickens.

The idea that their game in hand is at Chelsea is not quite right. They have 8 games left to play. Chelsea is just one of them. Each is worth 3 points. Its a mental shortcut to look at where the extra game comes from but its not mathematically relevant.

I would also state their game in hand is against Chelsea because until they play it, every matchday Spuds will be on one game less so not a true representative of the current table. (Same with the three ahead of us as well.

I'm not quite sure why people are so adamant that Chelsea won't do well though, (well actually I do but it seems those people are in self denial about being downers). Chelsea raise their game against "big" teams and one off matches. They beat Spurs 4-1 at Spurs, they drew with Man City twice, and Arse /Plop once each. So they can easily get points off Spurs.

4th currently having played the same number of games, 4th going into the weekend. Obviously I desperately hope we get over the line, but this Emery's something else.

It’s going to be tight. I can see us both getting 10 -12 points from the last 8 games…
