Two Different December Tales

As another Premiership weekend passes by many Spurs fans start the new week with a bad taste in their mouths.

Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory. The updated Premiership table highlights how tight it is in the fight for fourth and makes us wonder just how costly the weekend events may very well be. It would be difficult to have a decisive outlook on the season events so far and my opinions and thoughts like many others have swayed back and forth at times.

However, I believe both the Optimists and the Pessimists have substance to each stance. Lets take a look at the positives. We're in 5th on goal difference, 3 points off third and we've got Goodison, Old Trafford, the Ethihad, the Emirates and St.James Park out of the way. The new players have settled in well with Verts, Lloris and Dembele rated by almost everyone and Dempsey and Siggy winning others over as of late.

We've qualified for the knock-out stages of the Europa League, Defoe is in top form, We still have Kaboul, Parker and BAE to return, the youngsters are getting solid game time and we have a fixture list with winnable games on the horizon. On the other hand, elements of this season have been disappointing. Our inability to hold on to leads has cost us against West Brom, Norwich, Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal and Everton. 2 points from 18 in a winning position.

The Lane is no longer a fortress. We are out of the League Cup. Modric, VDV and King are gone and some will argue not replaced. Walker has been below par, Gallas is no longer able to cut it at the top level, Adebayor hasn't done a single thing of note apart from get a red card at the Emirates and we've still got numerous players that the manager would have happily shipped out in the summer.

Now I'm not going into a debate over AVB or whether there is a need to buy in January. Obviously opinions will differ. I believe the Optimists and the pessimists are both fully justified in their own thoughts on the season but lets get behind the team over the festive period. A good run and we could be flying high around the new year. Some says it is a season for transition and we can't expect too much and that may very well be the case but lets just wait and see what the next few months have to offer. COYS!
