    (Well somebody had to)

    Now while I understand I'll get negative reps and abuse for this. It's important this thread exists.

    We're in the title race, we may well fuck it up, we may still come 5th. But right now. Right now. We're right up there. We're fucking glorious. So bloody enjoy it.

    I couldn't be more proud of being Spurs right now. Of what we stand for. Of our history. Of Spurs.

    COME ON YOU FUCKING SPURS! SOD THE SUPERSTITIOUS BULLSHIT. THIS IS SPURS. I BELIEVE IN YOU! I FUCKING BELIEVE!!!


    And I'll leave you with this because it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. ;)

    The thought of us being champions for our last ever season at White Hart Lane as we know it - well it's just too beautiful to comprehend...

    We can enjoy it on May the 15th. Our club has slipped at the last hurdle to many times.

    God knows what will happen over the next three months, but it's February and we're 2nd in the league!

    Good times.

    It would be pretty weird if we end up disappointed with 'mere' CL qualification at the end of this season. Qualifying for the CL would be absolutely huge for us in terms of keeping our best players, attracting new ones, the extra cash, and crucially...raising our profile for new stadium sponsors. Worth remembering.

    But yeah, we're genuinely in the title race and we should enjoy it for all it's worth.

    COYS

    I don't think we will win it

    At the moment we are certainly in the race and at the moment we are as good as any team in the country

    We can do it, I don't think we will but we are capable

    I remember the last time someone posted one of these threads.

    Didn't end well at all. The next few months were some of the most heartbraking i've had being a spurs fan. Cheers.

    Fuck it. It's hardly a common occurrence.

    I'm generally pessimistic when it comes to Spurs, and this season is no different. But we're legitimately one of four teams that are approaching the last ten games and still have a genuine chance of winning the title.

    Just enjoy it! If we get CL qualification I'll be over the moon, so just hoover up the title speculation with everything you have.

    Doesn't the "Top 4 Finish?" thread cover this? Or is that one now too pessimistic and out of date?

    I'm enjoying winning games and if we are still in with a shout in the last few games then i will start thinking about the title. But there is a long way to go yet. The last thing i want is for our players to get overhyped and take their minds off the next game.

    Bit too early for me still to believe, there's much football still to play. But if we're up there still come late March then...

    Yes it is. Fuck that thread. ;)

    Agreed but we as fans need to believe we can win it and take that energy to the lane. This is ours to lose and I truly believe that. I'm pretty sick of being considered "spursy". I don't think our players are "spursy". I don't think our manager is "spursy". How about we as fans stopped acting so "spursy" because we aren't either. It'll be hard. It's a long road ahead. But I truly believe we can have this if we want it.

    It's not a title race.

    We are on a stroll to the title. Strolling and toiling all the way.

    Believe.

    I think they need to get to the last ten games to be able to really see how plausible it is. It's a bit of a psychological thing...from ten is a clear countdown.

    We're second. There's going to be title talk. We're also consistent instead of fluking a bunch of games.

    I think Pochettino is a very grounded manager, and will just be emphasising the importance of the next game. As supporters I don't see anything wrong in entertaining the idea of winning the title. It's such a rarity that I think we should grab any chance we get!

    I just hope that our supporters are not overly critical if we fall short but still succeed in CL qualification.

    I think the reasons some of our fellow fans are a bit reticent to admit we are in the race are that we do have a habit of buggering it up at the business end of big games, and at the end of seasons when things are looking good. There was also the "mind the gap" jibe that famously backfired. I have to confess I am in that boat and would rather wait for the last 8 - 10 games with us still in with a chance.

    However, the last time Spurs won the title I was eight and hadn't discovered football, the next couple of seasons they were close ... but no cigar. I don't believe that Poch will let the team get complacent or take his eye off the ball (pun intended!). I also think it most unlikely we will actually win the title.

    But fuck it! Come You Spurs, just go out and win every game and make the fans believe, and deliriously happy at the same time!

    EDIT Great video and great music, well done to whoever put it together. Very inspiring.

    Just don't want to jinx anything. Waited my whole life for a crack at it. Now we are doing well and have a chance don't want anything to fuck it up.

    I think we have a good chance of 3rd, which would be a great season.

    Happy to enjoy the speculation, but until we get down to the last 5 or 6 games it's all speculation.

    We are good enough to win it though.
