    the point ALL us spurs fans are trying to make is.....even us arm chair fans would have put priority on finishing top 4 first before anything and that would include a cup.......would bale put pen to paper if we do win the UEFA cup?...or would he be more likely to do so if we finish in the top 4 and guarantee us champions league matches?.....

    with champions league matches next season it will not only open the possibilities of better buys in the summer but will argue the fact of keeping our top players for at least another season...by not buying in the january window has just shown our top players that spurs are a season to season club and not one that truly builds for the future...since jan even ady has lost that little spark he had and because of that it has started to dawn apon the rest of the players that this could well be some of them playing together for the last time at the lane ...

    this importance of CUP win has harmed not only this season but our future as well...if bids for bale,ady and even vertoghen come in after a failed challenge for champions league spots it would be a minor miracle if we managed to hold on to them...

    this Everton game on the weekend is a make or break game for spurs and a win is a must...if AVB doesnt set aside his ego and play a second string team for the return leg against basle then he really needs to look himself in the mirror and ask......"am i the spurs coach or am i just a coach looking to prove himself to everyone that doubted him"... for that i must point him in the direction of arsen wenger... who doesnt careless what people think of him but has always the best interests of his club.

    i agree half and half here.......i was dreading the UEFA cup, its for clubs that have nothing else to fight for and for clubs that can boast a large enough squad to rotate and give their fringe players a chance to impress and push for a first team slot...we made our first huge mistake back in january....we never bought a striker..not even an on loan player...... you guys say wheres our belief and hope..well it went in january in my books.... this is starting to become a regular trend for spurs..start well then fall apart after the new year..... i dont blame the players..they've really tried their best and to be in 3/4th position thus far is a great achievement and more than AVB could have asked from his players from the start of the season...they havent let us down...LEVI has, by not strengthening the squad in jan when we could all see there was a great chance in finishing top 4 and at that time we were still in 2 cups...

    i agree with above comment...this season will be a scrap to fifth place not top 4....we've played an extra game remember....which means chel/arsen win their game we drop to forth 1 point infront of arsenal and once they move in front theirs no way we will over take them again....

    my opinion is...this season was a great opportunity but ended in disaster....

    sandro cant play wasnt registered so you'll be seeing a line up of..... gomes
    hutton,gallas,dawson,bea
    lennon,jenas,palacios,pinaar
    vdv
    crouch...

    at least as long as we dont concede in the first half and maybe later in the second half we will see maybe krank come on for lennon..iam praying for a 1-1 would be a dream result to get away from home.. first half is very important..no silly mistakes esp from palacios and gomes and we have a chance. COYS.
