Tottenham Comparison With Last Season After 36 Games

A comparison of Tottenham’s results throughout the past season shows that Spurs are matching last season’s performance in terms of points gained but their final league position could still drop to 7th depending on the outcome of the final two games.

Comparison After 36 Games

At the end of March, after 32 games, Tottenham had 56 points which was 2 points less than after a similar number of games last season. This season in the next four games with 3 wins and a draw Spurs have acquired an additional 10 points to take their total to 66 points which is the same total they had in 2012-13 after 36 games. The 4 games in 2013 resulted in 2 wins and 2 draws.

So at the same stage as last season, in what has had the feel of a ‘disappointing’ season, Spurs are level with last year when the challenge for a Champions League place went down to the final day.

Comparison with Corresponding Fixtures

At the end of March, when comparing the corresponding fixtures, Spurs were -1 point. Comparing the results of the last 4 games with last year’s results against the same teams, Spurs situation has improved and taken then to an identical position as last season.

End of March:  – 1

Sunderland (h)  -
WBA (a)  – 2
Fulham (h)  + 3
Stoke (a)  -

End of April:  -

With two games to play Tottenham can match last season’s record total of 72 points by repeating the results gained in season 2012-13 with two wins at West Ham and over Aston Villa at White Hart Lane.

Last Season’s Results:

v West Ham United (a) Won 3 – 2
v Aston Villa (h) Won 2 – 0

The big difference in comparison with last season is that a top 4 finish is out of reach and even with two wins, Spurs could finish in 6th, a place lower than last season. If Spurs win their final two games they need Everton to fail to secure a win in either of their final two games at home to Manchester City and away at Hull City. If Tottenham drop points that would allow Manchester United with 3 wins in their final games to move above them, leaving Spurs in 7th and without European football next year.

      Why is that?

      I’m just pointing out that while we all regard this as a ‘disappointing’, ‘poor’ or what ever adjective you want to use to describe the season, we are actually on a par with last season and could yet equal last season’s record points total. COYS!

    Doesnt matter whether we are “on a par” with last season!! THIS season has been a fakkin disaster from top to bottom!!!! Allthe excitement and anticipation before this season started evaporated like a fart in a hurricane because of pi55 poor performances and the club being “run” by someone who is well out of his depth when it comes to managerial appointments!!! Absolute 888888 joke this year…i will buy no Tottenham merchandise or pay to watch this shite until Joe Lewis grows a pair and replaces Levy.

      The problem is that at the start of the season, we were all drawn into having far too high expectations, especially, in hindsight, with having 7 new players with no PL experience. While we lost our best player and weakened our position, the clubs around were able to strengthen their squad and so 72 points might see us finish in 6th, a number of points off 4th and the CL. Until last season, 72 points was a guarantee of CL football.
