It’s a good thing I am not a drinker but watching Spurs take Stoke apart tonight drove me towards drink, knowing the Arsenal squad are currently capable of doing this but they just don’t. Matters made worse by the fact that Spurs currently have the best attack and defence in the league, parameters that justifies their claim to the title if they end up winning it. When an Arsenal fan gets to a point that he thinks that Spurs deserve the title provided they claw back the points on Leicester then you know he has lost the will to live just a bit!
Spurs knew they had to capitalise on Leicester dropping points and they went all out for it today, they took the game to Stoke . I compare this display of Spurs with the one of Arsenal at Old Trafford facing an understrength United team knowing they had to win and it’s like night and day. The desire, composure, organisation, drive and mindset of this young Spurs team is very enviable . A team is a reflection of its manager to a great degree and this team reflect their manager of two seasons Mauricio. He has carried on from Southampton and has gone on to instill his style of play and a stronger mentality in this Spurs squad.
So the lead at the top is now down to 5 with 4 games to go and with Spurs with the easier run of fixtures I wouldn’t be surprised if Spurs go on to win it and if they do, they would have deserved it, can’t believe I just wrote that. I witnessed the meltdown from Arsenal fans on twitter as a result of Spurs mauling Stoke I am trying to imagine what that would be like if Spurs actually went on to win it, Arsene will have to find somewhere to hide till next season starts.
Like someone said on twitter can Arsenal give the 6 points they took of Leicester back? It hasn’t done Arsenal any good…
It’s the midweek games left now and the source of football joy remains my fantasy league. I am off to eat some chocolate, ice cream then sleep.
