      Looking at the last PL 12 matches of the season, there aren't any I think we should not win:

      H Everton
      A Palace (Postponed)
      H Southampton
      A Burnley
      A Swansea
      H Watford
      H Bournemouth
      A Leicester
      H Arsenal
      A West Ham
      H Manchester United
      A Hull

      The 2 games we have against top 6 opposition are both at the Lane and I think the term 'Fortress' can be used for proper home games at the moment. Even if we draw 3 of those 12 games and win the other 9 we are looking at 83 points for the season, even if we only won 7 and drew 5 we would thump our previous best points total in the Premiership by bagging 79 points. Farking blimey we could win the farking lot of them and get loads! Could we catch the chavs? Nah, not unless they go bonkers and throw it away, but let's hope eh?

      I don't give any fucks about jinxing or jumping the gun or minding the gap, so I am confident that this will be our best ever finish in the PL, I will bet anybody a whole quid on that. Mind the gap. It really is going to be an exciting 3 months.

      The last two home games won't be a walk in the park for sure but it could also depends on what other teams have left to play for by then. 0i don't think Burnley away will be a simple task or Hull either but all the games are very winnable! I'd be happy with second spot, closing the gap on the chavs, and a record points total. If we can get the FA cup as well then it'll be the best season in my memory by far.

      The only that might happen is that we lose away to Burnley or Home to United or something, because we are human and I won't mind that, because we'll stuff everyone else - scoring 4 goals every game in the process, it's our new favourite number of match goals this season.

      Yes lets come in the top 2 and win the FA Cup beating Arsenal along the way, so we don't have to leave London again.....oh that's guaranteed already, well let's beat Arsenal twice between now and the end of May, or Arsenal and Chelsea I don't mind. We're second and playing beautifully, this is really good stuff, the last time I can remember us being second was....um last year, but before that was ages and ages ago. The 80's I think, we were battling Everton at the top of the league, no-one had heard of Chelsea and Man City back then and United hadn't discovered Fergie. It was football with prper teams, not cheque books and we were very good, well most of the time. my memory never fails....does it?

      Iv never been so confident in a Spurs team in my life.

      We've wobbled of recent but seem to be back on message.

      I simply want the lads to believe and play for one another.

      I still think our depth is lacking but that shouldn't be a problem any more now we're out of everything but the FA Cup. Either way, it's being an interesting season so far and long may this stuff continue.

      I would agree but when you consider the injuries we have to Jan, Toby, Rose any team in the prem would struggle. Trippier, Wimmer and Davies are good replacements but are not as good but would get into most teams in the prem

      My issue has been our attacking options. We have Lamela injured, Sissoko, Janssen and Nkoudou who do not seem to be up to it

      What I am confident in, is if we had everyone fit we would beat any team in this league.. A feeling I have not had for years
