Paul Merson tips Tottenham for the title shock.

Posted on September 20, 2013 by Scraggs

Having looked into Paul Merson’s predictions for the fixtures coming up this weekend there are very few, if any, major surprises, Arsenal, Chelsea and United all to win and Tottenham to draw in Cardiff. In reality with the exception of United against Manchester City they are all reasonable predictions, we believe that Tottenham will be too strong for Cardiff but they have already beaten City on home territory and cannot be discounted.

Most of us can certainly live with and accept his argument on the outcome of the fixture but read a little more and these are the words that really catch your attention:-

“I┬ádon’t see how Tottenham will fail to create chances and I’m going to go for a draw – but if I had to pick someone to win I would say Tottenham. I’ve been impressed with them and I think they’ve got every chance of winning this Premier League”.

Stunned silence was the first reaction as at long last an Arsenal old boy, ardent follower and supporter has said those magic words, Paul Merson thinks that Tottenham are now good enough to win the Premier League. Nowhere does he say that they will win it or that they are favourites to win it, simply that have as good a chance as any other team and we shall take that as acknowledgement of the work done by all associated with Tottenham Hotspur FC.

It does seem that the tide is turning and that more and more pundits, reporters and supporters of competing clubs are now beginning to concede that something is brewing in N17. When Modric and Harry went last year the prediction was that the Tottenham challenge was over, it wasn’t, when Gareth Bale was being courted by Real Madrid it was the end of any Tottenham dream to make the big time, that doesn’t seem to be the case right now though as more and more now consider that Tottenham have the credentials to do well this season.

Last night AVB made six changes and still the team performed and rolled all over Tromso, they suffered three injuries but whilst disappointing they simply brought on Eriksen, Vertonghen and Paulinho and still had plenty more on the bench. That is the power of Tottenham this season.

We at JTN have been banging the drum for a good while now about just how good this squad could be and what it might be capable of, Tottenham fans know it but some still need a little more convincing as it’s all new to them, at last those that ridiculed Tottenham hopes in the past are now beginning to sit up and take notice because the drumming is getting louder by the week. Amazingly Tottenham are still only sixth in the betting for the title behind last seasons top four and Liverpool, the odds have shortened to about 14/1 but expect those to shorten still further in the coming weeks.

Tottenham are the shakers and movers in football and whatever AVB might say the title is their motivation.

    read that arse lawrenson though, he predicts spurs win but take rise out of avb, can’t wait until Liverpool have 3 games in 6 days.

  2. Eric says:

    expect to win with eriksen in form n lamela having few games.Our defence has been good so far n in case soldado doesn’t score we still have an inform defoe to call upon.Yes city lost there but they were new to pellegrini’s style with garcia in defence,gotta keep that in mind

    • Tony says:

      eight different scorers so far with chadli,lamela and the centre backs to join in yet. It’s the sort of game we need to win and will tell us a lot more about where we are.

  3. Eric says:

    I’ve noticed with eriksen,soldado seems to be more mobile in the penalty area.It’s as if his anticipations r more now.Good news

    • Tony says:

      just think that up top is the most difficult area to click but soldado is a very canny player. only one offside all season. eriksen is a special type of playerhe will work it out with soldado who i expect to score tomorrow.

  4. Eric says:

  5. Eric says:
