Tottenham’s Objective for the Season
Andre Villas-Boas was on Sky this morning saying that our objective for the end of the season is to finish 4th. Surely after what happened last year that should not be the case? We are in 4th now with a 3 point cushion. The league objective has to be 3rd; guaranteed Champions League qualification. 4th again, with Arsenal or Manchester United winning the Champions League would be a financial and emotional disaster. Was he really set that as an objective on signing? It would be a significant achievement, as it was for Harry, given where we started but an objective? No way.

The sad news is that Sandro’s knee injury is serious and he will be out for the rest of the season. Best wishes go out to him. Let’s not make the old mistake of rushing him back before he really is fully fit. If it wasn’t obvious why I wrote in my first blog about the transfer window that we needed two quality midfield players as squad cover, I hope it is now.
Arsenal: this time it’s our turn….
It’s not long now until Arsenal come rolling over the hill again. The league position is even closer than last season at this stage. Let’s not blow it this time. We were in complete control of the last derby until Emmanuel Adebayor was sent off. The players need to remember that rather than what happened afterwards. Theo Walcott has just signed a new contract reputed to be for £100,000 a week. It looks like he talked them up from an initial offer of £80,000. If he stays fit, I think it will be good for him and good for Arsenal. Shame. Look out for them splashing out on a new striker now they know they don’t have to buy a replacement for him.
