It’s a very tight and strange run in. I still think Spurs end up 3rd, they should be able to ride the wave of the new stadium with majority of their remaining games to be played at home.

For me, it’s out of Arsenal and United for 4th. And I still believe Chelsea will win Europa, so will play champions league next year regardless.

I’m not sure Arsenal’s run home is as easy as some think. 5/7 away including 4 trips to the toughest of the non top 6 teams.

Spurs play City away which is basically a loss but outside of that they have 5/6 at home against also rans.

I’ll leave judgement till after the palace game. If we smash them in the new stadium I’d be very confident of at a minimum 4th.

Good old Tactics Tim thinks we can win every game. :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

You can talk up Spurs chances, but you've D1 (which was lucky it wasn't a draw) and L4 (again, unlucky against Liverpool), in your last five. It's not really encouraging.

Who is tactics Tim?

As I said I’ll reserve judgement until after the Palace game. If we win comprehensively I see no reason why Spurs shouldn’t be confident of finishing the season strong

Interesting to see how the new stadium at Spurs affects them. Traditionally it takes time for clubs to get used to a new venue. They need to hit the ground running.

It’s anyones still. Arsenal are probably slight favourites but didn’t realise five of their last seven were away. The new stadium may help or hinder us (mind you could hardly hinder us any more than of late with our results). Having been there at the weekend I feel it will help us but no guarantee

Wasn’t there meant to be a giant cockerel on top of the roof area?
It's there, well a scaled up replica which has every scratch and dent, even the one Gascoigne made with an air rifle. It's facing east so that the left wing faces the pitch, which given it's in the south stand not the east stand it is one quarter turn to the right.

The originals are in the museum, and the players tunnel.

Incredible attention to detail. Must admit the new stadium looks fantastic. Might have to have a look when I go to London next.

Must've been a big job to raise that giant cock up on the roof.

Staggering how much they've tried to make it like home. From a spot marked where the old centre spot was, to having Bill Nich's ashes re-interred, to using bricks from the Old Shelf Side as feature walls in some of the bars, and even using the rubble from the old place mixed in the aggregate of the new concourse floors.

They've done such a good job that even JD has praised Levy.
A pre-easter miracle.

Just another reason why we are the world’s greatest football club and all others are mere pretenders.

Incredible to think we nearly ended up buying the London stadium - although I believe the thinking there was to knock it down and build something new.
