All future hopes rest for Spurs on Bayern Munich winning Saturday’s Champions’ League final against Chelsea. After too many lacklustre performances during the second half of the season, Tottenham played and won 2 – 0, their last Premier league game of this season at White Hart Lane against Fulham. They ended this season in 4th position after Arsenal ended their season with a nervy 3 – 2 win away to West Bromwich Albion, who tried but failed to give Roy Hodgson a good send off, to the new England Manager’s post.
As chronicled extensively in the press, the 4th spot in the Premiership will not automatically result in entry to the Champions’ League, as Chelsea, who ended their season 6th, go to the final, looking not only to take the CL trophy but to gain entry for the following season.
Spurs are not only looking for the riches that playing in the CL brings, but more importantly, keeping the world class players currently plying their trade at White Hart Lane, for whom, CL football means a great deal. Coupled with this, the top line players that Tottenham have on their wish list, would probably choose other teams that will play Champions’ League football, rather than in the less fashionable Europa League.
We all wait with anxiety for the result on Saturday 19th May.
