Tottenham v Sunderland

Postby Conner99 » Wed May 15, 2013 5:57 pm

Tottenham find themselves needing a win to have any hope of qualifying for the Champions League next season , they lie a point behind north London rivals Arsenal and with the superior goal difference the Gunners have a draw will not be enough .




Sunderland head into the game at White Hart Lane knowing they are now safe from the drop after Wigan were relegated yesterday ...it will need a good performance to take anything from Tottenham as they fight for the last Champions League place ...can they cause an upset under new manager Paolo Di Canio

As a West Ham legend I would really love it if Paolo Di Canio managed to prevent the Spurs from finishing in the top 4 this season.

Come on you Mackems!

I would also be rather happy should Sunderland deny Spurs all 3 pts .

I wouldn't expect 'good luck' messages from our rivals, so a plague on both your houses in return gents. I'm thinking Sunderland will put up stubborn resistance but, of course, that Spurs will have too much for them in the end. I'm not holding out any serious hope that Newcastle will do us a favour if we get the 'W', but it keeps the season bubbling right up to the final day.
Spurs 3 Sunderland 1
COYS!

it will be very nerve wracking for both clubs fans , a point could be enough for Arsenal ...a defeat could even be ok for Arsenal ..Tottenham definitely have to win though so I guess they will be listening to the crowd during the match ..

If Newcastle are winning and look good, then i expect Spurs to steamroller Sunderland.

They have no Sessegnon, Gardner, Cattermole and Rose cant play.

My only worry is that if arse are winning at st. james' park because that might take the edge off our performance as it would all be in vain.

It would be great for us to win this regardless because 3 points would take us to 72points - our highest ever in the PL. Only once in the PL era has the 4th placed team finished with a higher total. And yet we looked doomed to 5th.

Its officially squeaky bum time!

Many possible outcomes...it would be typical of us to have Arsenal lose at Newcastle only for us to . it up at home - but I would expect a positive result at The Lane so will hope the Geordies can do us a favour.
Incentives for Newcastle include pride & finishing above Sunderland, I hope Pardew's comments about not caring don't rub off on the team.

:lol:

A few months back I thought we may have had the honour of relegating Di Canio now he could really p** on our party!

Yep I hope he does move to a bigger club just so we can see him in the best teams and in the CL, unless AVB really improves Spurs in the summer and makes it an even more exciting team :)

FT

Tottenham 1-0 Sunderland
Bale 89'

Spurs fail to finish in the top 4 but have still had a great season thanks to so many wonder goals from Gareth Bale.

Any comments?

Obviously I am gutted, disappointed....but in the same breath proud & hopeful - our highest points tally ever, normally 72 points would guarantee Champions League but it was not to be (such is the Tottenham way!)

But hats off to AVB, lets build on what we have achieved - fingers crossed Bale stays, the noises being made are positive ones but I wont hold my breath until an official announcement is made.

Sunderland defended as if their lives depended on it...blocks left right & centre, but step up the magician, the lillywhite wonderboy and all fell in to place- just a shame Newcastle couldn't do us a favour, but it was in our hands a couple of months back so we cant blame any other.

it would really surprise me if Gareth Bale left as he is still only 23 .....but is it like a Robin Van Persie situation , Bale has given everything to Tottenham for 6 years or so ...what has he won though ...nothing .

As an individual this year he won both the player and young player of the year award and the football writers award too so he hasn't done too badly.

It looks like Lord Sugar could have been responsible for sparking wild
celebrations at WHL by tweeting that it was 1-1 at Newcastle but he has denied it saying there was no signal in his box :lol:
