Those were Martin Jol’s words after Spurs scraped a 2-2 draw with Wigan on Sunday.
You can say we’re doing well [in fourth place] or that we’re throwing things away, but the truth is we’re not good enough yet. – Martin Jol
You have to say he’s right, one win in the last six is bad enough but when in those six there’s games against Sunderland, Fulham & Villa it ain’t good enough.
No matter how good Wigan have been doing, especially away from home, if Spurs want that Champions League spot these are the games they need to win. They need to increase that gap to ARSEnal not just keep it around the 4-5 points, punish them when they slip up not constantly keep them in it.
Also some better fullbacks are going to be needed at some time, Sunderland’s equaliser last week was another shocker – god I hate it when players busy trying to play the man when it would be far easier and safer to play the ball out – they are just too damn soft. If not then a European campaign will resemble Everton’s this season.
At least Defoe has decided to start scoring again, now just need to get the midfielders to join in. I had thought I’d put the kiss of death on him by putting him back in my fantasy team.
