Home and Away

I don't know about you, but I am the type of Spurs fan who likes to look ahead and try and predict results.

It's become something of an addiction, and if you ask me who our rivals next three games are I can rattle them off quick as you like. And this leads me to an interesting twist in this years Premier Laegue, that I'm sure you will have noticed, and which has perhaps given rise to this rollercoaster feeling of being a Spurs fan at the moment.... it's this new schedule of two home games followed by two away games. I don't know whose idea it was and frankly I don't like it, but what it has helped to do is constantly keep the table evolving. If you can nick an away win, and back it up over the next two weeks with another six points, you can be flying up the table while one of your rivals might have faced two tough away games and be slipping down. On the reverse, muck it up at home and you could be left wondering where your next points are coming from.

I don't think it is any coincidence that our form has come in bursts - a group of four wins, one win in five etc, followed by three wins out of four. Just look at what has happened...a defeat away to Arsenal left us mid-table, but we had the knowledge of two home games where we could get points. As we beat West Ham and Liverpool, Arsenal had two away games (Villa and Everton) in which they garnered two points. Luckily for us, we then got bonus points away at Fulham while they squandered points at home to Swansea. We are in a position where the two teams I consider to be our rivals for 4th spot, Everton and Arsenal, have opposite fixtures to us - ie when we're at home they are away.

Next up for Everton are trips to Stoke and West Ham while Arsenal are away to Reading and Wigan. We have two home games against Swansea and Stoke, and I would expect us to be in 4th come Xmas Day. However, we then have two away games (Villa and Sunderland), while Arsenal are at home to West Ham and Newcastle and Everton are at home to Wigan and Chelsea. Those two away games over Xmas are vital - string 4 results together and we could even be pushing for 3rd. Less than 9 points from four games and we could be back in mid-table.

All of this helps to add to the highs and lows of being a Spurs fan, and I fully expect to see us fluctuate between 4th and 6th between now and the end of the season. Let's just hope that we have got our toughest away tests (United, City, Arsenal, Everton and Newcastle) out of the way, and can string together a good sequence of results to help guide us up the league.
