March the Key Month

March the Key Month

With only one Premier League game remaining for Tottenham in the month of February, it looks like March will be the all important period as far as Spurs cementing one of the top four positions is concerned. It begins on the 3rd with Arsenal making the trip to White Hart Lane in what is sure to be one the the most competitive battles of the Premier League season thus far. Tottenham then go to Liverpool, followed by a home match with Fulham and finally, they face Swansea at The Liberty Stadium. With Arsenal still only four points behind as things stand, a positive result for Spurs in that particular encounter would give Andre Villas-Boas men the perfect start.

From a gambling perspective, I can only compare the upcoming month to the live March Madness bets that are placed on the NCAA every March. The markets on the Premier League are growing each and every weekend and punters can now back Spurs to win a half, player’s to get hat tricks and even on red cards (an outcome which would not surprise me during the Arsenal game!) Those who have backed Spurs to finish the season in the top four will definitely be sweating during the next few weeks. For more information on the March Madness, visit the March Madness 2013 website.

Now unbeaten in ten league games, Tottenham will be confident of finishing the season on a high. The FA Cup exit aside, Spurs’ form has been excellent over the last few months. Andre Villas-Boas team now have a two legged, last 32 Europa Cup match with Lyon to look forward to which I personally believe they have every chance of winning. West Ham away at the end of February is not going to be easy as Sam Allardyce’s side always perform at Upton Park but it’s another winnable encounter.

Maybe I should be looking up the table rather than down it, and the fact is that Tottenham now site just five points behind second placed Manchester City. With Chelsea and City looking out of sorts, who knows just where Spurs could be placed after five more Premier League matches. Let’s hope that March is when it all falls into place for the Lilywhites.

  1. Currently we’re looking down on the red scum and are in the driving seat for 4th. But who knows having seen City’s collapse at Saints and Chelski’s inconsistency what’s to stop us finishing higher?
    The only slight niggle is that despite Spurs bloggers saying it’s not so, we’re starting to look like a ringer for a one-man team (like we accused arse of being last season!) Yes Holtby is looking impressive and Lennon has his moments, but I’m struggling a bit right now to see where else goals are coming from?
    hopefully big Ade will fill the void and Dembele and Holtby will start getting a few, plus our big defenders at set pieces. Odd though that even the near misses are down to Bale at the moment…
    Dempsey needs to chip-in I think and I’m sure master-tactician avb will get it sorted. Anyway if only Bale scores who gives a monkey really? :mrgreen:

  2. Who gives a shit if Bale scores all of our goals until the end of the season, all I care is that my team win and the rest of the team contribute in some way, whether that be hard work, tackling, assists, or actually scoring the odd goal, Bale knows where the net is and has the confidence to score so let him do what he does.

  3. Wouldn’t worry about certain sections of the media trying to label us as a one man team.
    How would Man Utd be doing without RVPs’ goals?
    How about Liverpool without Suarez?

  4. Something I’ve noticed but no ones written a post about, when did we last score from a corner? I think we’ve been racking up somewhere close to -5 corners a game (clearly attacking well and forcing deflections and saves) but were not converting them. I think this could be a way for others to score, take a little pressure of bale and lift others spirits a little which in turn would hopefully lead to them scoring more.

  5. Some will never learn. We are about reach that time of the season when a team in London catches totinitus. If that doesn’t work, there is always some lasagna left over to do the business . Enjoy your fifth place at the end of the season.
