Hammers must stop Spurs title charge

west-hamSpurs are the Premier League title favourites, according to Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri. They are two points behind leaders Leicester with 11 games remaining.

“Tottenham are strong in every situation,” said Ranieri today  “Everyone is speaking about Leicester but nobody about Tottenham,” he said.

“Tottenham, in my opinion, are favourites. When they defend and when they attack, they know what they want.We are the surprise, that is fantastic, a good energy, but if we are realistic the real competitors are Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham.”

I would personally welcome Leicester City with open arms to win the Premier League this season, it would be good for the Premier League in general.  I could even tolerate Arsenal or Manchester City winning the crown this season but what I refuse to accept is the merest possibility of Spurs being crowned as Premier League champions. I shudder just to think about it. Their fans would dine out for that for the next twenty years or more!

Tomorrow is our cup final! Our treble over them in 2014 is a distance memory and means nothing, just water under the bridge now. We are unbeaten at home since August at the Boleyn Ground since slipping up to Bournemouth 4-3. We need to nip this Spurs title challenge in the bud and bring them back to earth with a shuddering thump on Wednesday night. We expect every-man and women on and off the pitch to do their duty and get behind getting one over on our London rivals.

Mr Shankly once said “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that”

  1. I’m just looking at point’s totals and our position in the league with 11 games left to play .
    The fact that Tottenham at home is game 28 is irrelevant, as it could easily have been a different team had the fixture computer mixed it differently . We want to win game 28 because if we don’t we could go down to 7th or 8th and our dreams of Europe would start to fade . I don’t want to see Tottenham win the league ( that would be unbearable ) , I just want to see three more points against whoever it may have been on game 28 . The fact that it’s Tottenham with dreams of the league is irrelevant .
    Come on you Hammers .

  2. Irrelavent ! Take you’re meds keV and tell the minders where you are ! Its late ?

  3. Kevin is right. The only thing that is relevant to us is the points. I mentioned a while back that if we relax for any game, we could be overtaken very quickly by several teams. One of those team’s I mentioned was Chelsea who I see are now up to eighth with yet another win.
    With eleven games still to go a million things could still go wrong for anyone. Let’s focus on making sure it’s not us and forget about Spurs other than it is another team we need to be at our best for

  4. The treble win over Tottenham is still a nice memory. I am still dining out on it thanks and I will still be reminding spurs fans about the year we beat them three times in a season for several years to come. I also hope to remind them of the 2016 season when we stuffed them at home and put paid to their title dreams.
