Re: spurs V fulham

Pre the Leicester i game i thought about this. If we had beaten Leicester and Spurs beat Fulham that would have had us 8 clear with 11 left. Add a conservative 2 wins to that out of those 11 for us and we are 14 clear of them. Would they get 5 wins in their remaining 11 games? Doubt it very much. As...

Only Taylor played him onside although I appreciate that doesn’t fit with your agenda.
If Mee had stuck to his job instead of crazily stepping out on his own then he would have been in a better position to cover Bales run. By stepping out he left Taylor looking the mug.
