'If It's Football, It's Vital'

I'm sorry, but I really feel that I have to…

It probably isn't the most long-sighted thing for a rival fan to do, but it seems to be, too big an opportunity to miss out on…

In recent times or even decades, Spurs have been the butt of so many jokes and abuse from Arsenal and Chelsea fans, that I feel it only right and proper that we have a chance to have a laugh at their expense, even if this jokes ultimately prove to be short lived. The sight of Arsenal fans leaving their stadium early, after another humbling defeat to Swansea. That leaves them with only two wins from their last ten domestic games, though we ought to remember that one of those was a little painful for us.

As for Chelsea, you almost couldn't make it up. They sack the manager who brought them the Holy Grail of the Champions league and who started the season playing some of the most attractive football since the arrival of Mr Abramovich. Sadly for the legendary Italian, he wasn't doing it quickly enough or quite how the owner would have liked it. It is obvious to everyone but a certain Russian that Fernando Torres couldn't score in a brothel, but he did pay £50m for him, so he must be right and the whole world must be wrong.

The managerial tactic of Wenger selling one and buying three, again appears to have massively weakened the side and seeing them in 10th, has to be a nightmare scenario that could hardly get any worse, until they hopefully slip up again against a WBA side that will really fancy their chances next weekend.

As for Chelsea, could Rafa be their shortest termed manager yet? Today we read that they are considering appointing Avram Grant in some sort of advisory role between Rafa and the board. Now thats bound to work…. What odds on Mr Grant being the interim manager himself before Jools Holland plays his first note on New Years eve?

Of course it could all end happily for our beloved rivals, and they with the Manchester's could all remain happily settled in the top four places in May and it could be us that are crying in our beers at another wasted season and having an inept manager, a board that doesn't invest and players that are rubbish. But I for one, fully intend to at least smile at my clubs fortune and the current ineptitude of others, after all it could all be so different this time next week….
