Tottenham…Still Sucking

As entertaining as it is to see two teams fight not to win a trophy next season (in effect, the Championship), there’s something humiliating that Tottenham “this is our year” Hotspurs is one of the main contenders to leave the Premier League. How could things have gone so wrong?

At least their draw against Middlesbrough edged them out of the relegation zone, but tough times lie ahead for Tottenham. While it wasn’t the brightest of starts for Tottenham, Darren Bent (the ₤16.5 million wonder) surprised us all by actually finding the back of the net. Spurs couldn’t hold on to the lead though and Boro managed to equalise from a long-range shot by Luke Young early in the second half. After a few more tries, everyone decided that they couldn’t be bothered and the match petered out as a draw.

So Tottenham haven’t had a league win in the last 9 matches. Bravo boys! With this kind of form, you’re sure to knock Arsenal out of the top 4. Boro doesn’t really have much to celebrate either, being just one point and one place ahead of Tottenham on the table, ignoring the fact that they have Jeremie Aliadiere as their attacking spearhead.

All in all…a boring match with both teams scrabbling not to lose and neither having enough desire to win.
