Spurs are the Premiership's kings of England

Tottenham Hotspur are the Premiership's kings of England! The football club now in fourth position in the English Premier League, is chasing for the fourth and last Champions League spot. Martin Jol, the Spurs manager said that his team deserved the fourth spot and that everyone in England should support Spurs to take the last Champions League spot away from Arsenal, their biggest rival. From Mirror:
The whole of England, he insisted, should be proud of what is happening at Tottenham.

That they should salute a policy that has offered a chance to compete at the top level to young, homegrown players of real potential.

Jol believes it is simply not happening enough, and claims too that such a short-sighted policy can eventually have a damaging effect on the future of the national team...

"But last week in the Champions League there wasn't a single English player and that is strange and worrying. "That is why I think everyone in England should get behind us and be proud that we've got an English team with some foreign players thrown in."

You know what? He is right. Spurs play some exhilarating football in the right spirit, and they do it with young English players.
I'm proud of being a Spurs fan. We play with a lot of young English players, something that other clubs do not. For example, during the weekend, we had NINE Englishmen on the pitch! Champions elect Chelsea had only three and Arsenal - zero!

No matter what happens at the end of the season, I think we have done a good job. No one expected us to be challenging for the Champions League spot when the season began and we have been in fourth position for a long time this season. We are very likely to play European football next season through the UEFA Cup competition even if we do not qualify for the Champions League. Our talented English players are still young and they can only get better.

Spurs meet Man Utd tonight and Arsenal this weekend. I think I'm going to have a weak heart after this week.

I'm a Man Utd fan and I hope we lose to you guys tonight. I know we need to win tonight to prevent Chelsea from taking the title this week but I don't want Arsenal to get the fourth spot too. We do you guys a favour then you guys need at least a draw at Arsenal in the weekend. Champions League for you guys next season!

Tough games for Spurs this week man. I have this feeling that Arsenal will just nick it from Spurs.

Yes Spurs have been impressive this year with their young English players but Champions League football may come too early for them.

It should have been a drawn game. Lee YP gave the second goal to Man United. Tottenham did fight back and overall had more shots and more possesion.

Well, Man U did win. And even if Arsenal were to win against Spurs on Sunday. Spurs can still retain their one point advantage by winning all the remaining matches.

Basically, Spurs is in the driver's seat. They have their fate in their hands and they have the advantage.

Lastly, I don't care if any team wins the League as long as it is not Man U.
