Sunday 13th May, 4:20 and even the most pessimistic of Spurs fans must have thought Champions League football was booked in to return to the Lane.
Fast forward two hours and a sense of Deja vu creeps in as the realism that once again Arsenal have pulled off the unlikely and pipped us potentially to a Champions League spot once again, and all the more fitting it would come from the errors of one of our former players.
So now the wait begins until the evening Of Saturday 19th May when our White half of North London will either be celebrating or mourning the end of a momentous season. Really our place should have been sewn up by the beginning of May but of course that's not the Spurs way and the fingernails remain at threat.
As one of the pessimists amongst us I can't get my hopes up, but it looks like Chelsea will be hampered by huge defensive issues with Terry and Ivanovic suspended and Luiz and Cahill not guaranteed to make it. Not that that will matter though, Chelsea played 9 at the back against Barca so they'll have options to draft in. Along with this a hammering for Bayern over the weekend hardly breeds confidence but they'll be up for this one in their own backyard.
It feels strange to start this blog with discussion of Chelsea but strangely the most important match of our season is not one of our own. As of now, until Sunday 20th May we become Germans.
