most times being so close and not making it hurts a lot more than not being able to compete for it at all.

Everyone is happy for Leicester and so am I but given how you guys have been battling it out with some of the top teams in the country for some years now, I would have had a greater satisfaction seeing spurs win the title. Just a personal opinion.

Leicester may have won the league but for me one thing is certain, Tottenham have been the best team in england this season with great football to watch and great balance between attack and defense.

I do hope you guys come out even stronger for next season with good signings and congrats on having a better season than many spurs supporters have even lived to see.

You know what, last month I would have argued we were the best team in the league this season but after these past few games, I have to say that Leicester really are just better. We do play good football that is usually very entertaining to watch and we top all the statistical measures but there are other measures of a team's quality like experience and mental fortitude, both things that our team currently severely lacks.

We've played great for the most part but when you look over some of the games, we just have not turned up sometimes. Rough form early in the season hurt us and we didn't finish so strong either. Leicester have been consistent the whole season (they've only lost three times!) and in the end, they have just done better than us.
+1
We have played the best football but Leicester have been solid and managed to kill off games. We outplayed them away (and only got a draw) and at home (where we lost 0-1). We drew against Swansea, against WBA x 2, Everton x 2, Liverpool x 2, Arsenal x 2, Chelsea x 2, at home vs Stoke and lost from an own goal vs United in the season opener (in a game they didn't have a single attempt on target). We also lost at home to Newcastle. Add those up and you don't win the title.
It's true what SuperSpurs said. Leicester is such a fairytale and it's a shame we're the only group of fans who can't quite celebrate their story. I think it's been a great season and we're still in with a great chance of finishing as runners-up. (Considering some fans in the past have argued that top 4 is all that counts, I guess they've got no reason at all to hang their heads. Personally, I think a bit different in that respect.)
So many of our players have really established themselves as some of Premier League's best, which is impressive considering the average age and lack of experience at this level. Pochettino and his coaching team have done a wonderful job, so long may it last as we're going into our last phase at our legendary stadium White Hart Lane. So much promise ahead and I already can't wait for next season! Hopefully our Champions League campaign will be as successful as last time (at least)!
+1
So this is how it feels to be the 'bad guy'... Hmm. Can't say I like it. I'd rather be the underdog with the soft underbelly.



LOL Who am I kidding? Chel$ki fans bitching about foul play? I do love me some irony. =D

Anyway, congrats to Le...f**k it. Can't do it. I'ma go cry now.

It's funny that most fans of other English clubs are laughing at your expenses when their own clubs are quite likely to finish below Spurs,

Overall throughout the season spurs were easily the best team for me in EPL , you guys have young group of squad and amazing manager , I am quite sure with bit more maturity & hunger due to this close finish, same group of players will get spurs over the rope in future.
+7
Would've been the same if any other team in the top 6 was chasing Leicester for the title this season. It really is a wonderful story and it's a real shame that we are the only group of fans that couldn't enjoy it.

I'm confident that we can perform just as well next season, if not even better.
+5
Gross exaggeration. Most are just happy for Leicester.
+5
It's not really that much of an exaggeration. We have also been successful this season, in fact we just clinched a CL spot with the point, but all that's being talked about with regard to us is our failure to catch up to Leicester.
+1
That's rubbish imo, most are celebrating Leicester not bashing spurs. Thats the real story,Cinderella gets her Prince or whatever... Obviously maybe local rivals will have a dig but the vast majority don't have a rivalry with spurs and are just happy for Leicester city. I think the big talking point for spurs is their ill discipline. The wheels really came off the at the end, and it was quite the surprise.
The thing is, fans of local rivals to Spurs are vastly overrepresented on the Internet so there is quite a lot of bashing going on. Not a lot on this site though, which is good.

It's not all that surprising what happened to be honest. I don't know if you've watched our matches with Chelsea these past few years but they have not been pleasant at all and there's almost always been a few incidents (for instance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vppIu-6-9RM, I'm not sure Torres even got punished for that).
It's not a coincidence that Vertonghen, Dembele, Rose, and Walker, the ones who have played against Chelsea the most were the most riled up.

Add to that the fact that this was a really hyped up game and Chelsea were also playing aggressively and you get what ended up happening.

The players are going to have to learn how to handle pressure somehow. We have very few players who are experienced in these kind of situations (and the manager isn't either) and the majority of them are still very young. I'm glad that this happened at a time when there are no real consequences rather than when it might have actually mattered.
+1
@SIF , my post was not just about FT , you have habit of unnecessary arguments but I won't take part in it this time, just go to Twitter or another Social media site and you will see my point.
I actually wanted spurs to win so it could be decided in the final 2 games. However seeing that leicester were going to play chelsea, you'd expect them to roll over just because of the london rivalry
+1
Twitter doesn't rep most fans either. I never said you were only talking about footytube.
It doesn't but its the closet we can get to , especially with big clubs , we certainly cant have whole Manu or for that matter any other fan base of one club at one place to get proper representation or their opinion.

You are finding it difficult to differentiate between people that are happy for Leicester and the people that are ripping on Spurs for not winning ( Mainly to hide their own teams failure ) .
+1
im not finding it difficult at all. i know many who watch the premier league, not one has said anything to me about spurs, but rather how impressed they are about leicester. spurs players unravelled, and of course people will chat about that, but the story is about leicester, with all due respect spurs are are a footnote in all of this as the leicester story is maybe once in a generation event.
It is a pretty great story but they have definitely been helped (and us as well actually) by this being one of the most competitive (i.e. weakest) PL seasons ever.

Neither us nor them would have even got close if this was like any season in the past decade or maybe even more with one or two of Chelsea, Arsenal, United, or City running away with it for the most part.

They basically peaked when the league was weakest. That fact is not going to be mentioned at all. Yes, it is still a wonderful achievement but in the end, who was actually challenging them for the title? An inexperienced Spurs side that was the youngest team in the league. All the traditional big teams completely failed to show up and the reigning champions put in one of the most pathetic title defenses I have ever seen.

They didn't beat a Mourinho Chelsea, or a mid-2000s Arsenal or one of the dozens of United sides that dominated the league, or even a decent Man City. Another slice of luck among the many that they have enjoyed this season.
@SIS, I don't know where you live, it might be different where you are, but here in London and the majority of England, most everyone are having a field day on Spurs.

But, for the wonderful reasons Malik gave above, its quite idiotic: they'll still likely be finishing below us. Most of the hate is coming from fear: this season isn't a one off, we have clearly hit something good here, and with our main core hanging around (including the manager), we are just gonna get better.
+1
i live in 'merica. well i said i can understand the london clubs ribbing their local rivals, but are you telling me up and down the country there's more talk about spurs than leicester city?
+1
where is this Merica? I'm curious

murica south of Kanada

@SIF, you underestimate the pettiness of football fans.
I've enjoyed Spurs all season long, but this game was the exact opposite of why I loved watching Spurs. Very disappointing to see so many great players lose their heads tonight.

Congrats to Leicester though and congrats nonetheless on what is likely going to be a 2nd spot for you guys.
+2
derby is a derby
i wouldnt blame the Spurs players , i'll call it awful refereeing
+2
Joreon, I disagree wholeheartedly.

All Chelsea have talked about recently is their desire for Leicester to win the league, and to thwart Tottenham. For sure there must be a rivalry, but how unprofessional can you be to openly say you want one over the other when you have to play both. This was playing with fire with both hands holding onto petrol canisters. This derby was more than just the average London Derby. Spurs are the ones with the title chase.

Chelsea had nothing in their pathetic season to fight for, and in today's game their only objective was to frustrate Spurs. And yes we caught the bait, but that is the result of our passion, we were ready to fight fire with fire and I for one am happy to see that. Spurs were not going to roll over and let Chelsea humiliate us. Yes we should have held out our 2-0 win, but we lost the title long before this game; dropped points against Westham, WestBrom, Newcastle etc. Today's game was all about today, and Chelsea were dicks all day. If we were gna lose the title at least we lost with some fight.

Now we can all move onto next season. Chelsea can watch us on TV in the CL next season.

COYMFS!
+2
Now isn't the time so I'm not going to say everything I want, if you want to converse come over the the Chelsea forum and we can host it there.

I will say just this: If Spurs were in a position where they were guaranteed a mid table finish and they had to play title contenders in the form of Arsenal and say...a really likable Swansea side, are you really saying your club and fans wouldn't want Swansea to win it over Arsenal? Mind you, Chelsea didn't throw a game against Leicester, we fought hard in a game against Spurs. You really wouldn't have a desire for Swansea to finish above Arsenal?

Anyway, sorry if this was too much as is. Go have a drink and do something you love. As a Chelsea fan I'm no stranger to last minute heart break...I know it sucks.
+2
if Chelsea is a dick then Spurs must be the pussy.
+2
Dicks all game? -How about going for the win Spurs? Players did nothing but foul foul foul after the 2-2 goal. They still had like 13 minutes and not even a shot toward goal was mustered. Should have been 2 reds.

If Mourinho had ran out in to the field and pushed an opponent player twice, like Poch did willian ,he´d be fined and banned.

Im sorry but you only have yourselves to blame.
Not the time, Chelsea fans
@Kokm1,

You talk as if Chelsea players weren't doing their best to break up play as well. Also, how biased can you be to say Poch pushed an opponent player lol

He was clearly trying to break the fight up between him and Rose and did a great job of doing so.

Also tell me where there should have been 2 reds? I felt the refereeing was pretty fair to both sides throughout the match. We made some bad tackles and the number of yellows we got showed it.

I think a draw was a fair result anyway and I think even if we won today Leicester would have sealed the title up anyway so imo this game really didn't matter that much even though all the pundits were hyping up the fixture.

Enjoy your mid-table finish knowing that the most notable thing your team has done this season is hold Spurs to a draw.
+2
good that you are talking about this season only because we accept we were very poor this season , for the last 10 season if we come into achievement i dont think you will make any argument ,of course we are enjoying our mid-table finish and are happy handing the title to Leicester city . enjoy CL football next season , dont disgrace EPL there.
@Obinocarlo, title was long gone bro.

Leicester would've had to lose both remaining fixtures and we would have had to win both to take it from them but you can keep thinking that your team actually did something important if that makes you feel better.
i am not saying we should take any credit for denying you 3 points that confirmed Leicester city champions, i feel your pain of losing it after so much effort, i love how your team played this season but when your players cant take it with good heart rather trying to injure other players out of frustration then i lost my respect for them.
@Obinocarlo,

You can't lose something you never had. I don't know why everyone thinks that we somehow failed this season. Did you see where we were after a quarter of the season? We've made the top four which was already above our beginning of season expectations. If anyone failed this season, it's Arsenal, who were clear of Leicester at the top of the table at one point, Chelsea, for putting up one of the worst title defenses ever, and Villa for being absolute garbage.

Of course the players lost their heads a bit but literally NONE of our players other than Alli have ever done anything malicious during the games so I would say today is definitely a freak incident. When you consider the pressure of the game + we are away to big rivals + it wasn't just any rivals, it's Chelsea who our players already have issues with, it just adds up to a really explosive situation. Obviously, no excuse for the actions today but there is a reason they acted out like that today.

Sure, I don't appreciate what the players did today but I am going to defend them as I don't believe any one of them is truly a "dirty" player and I'm sure when they've had the chance to calm down later today they will also be aware that how they played the game today is wrong and they will definitely also get a talking to from the coach and staff.
+1
Chelsea had one or two players who could have seen two yellows, but it would have been soft on a normal day and especially soft today due to what your players were getting away with.

Red Cards:

Fulltime- Vorm fighting and causing Hiddink to get knocked over, obviously wouldn't have impacted the game, this might be a retroactive

90+6- Dier foul's Hazard, should have been a second yellow

90+6- Mason's foul on Hazard would have been a soft red, but could have been

89- Lamela purposefully steps on Cesc's hand, could have been a red/will probably be a retroactive ban

Halftime- Dembele fingers Costa (giggidy) and should have seen red (footage makes it look like an official sees it)/will likely be yet another retroactive ban


Some of those are stretching a bit...but you guys were quite lucky to not get at least one red, if not two or three. Around the 80 minute mark I had a gut feeling that you would pull out the win but be screwed going forward due to finishing the game with 9 men or at least 2 retroactive bans on Lamela and Dembele. Damn near every neutral observer believes you guys should have seen a few reds.

Again, I apologize if none of this is appreciated, mods can feel free to delete as they see fit.
@Kgb112,

I think you've covered it pretty well. Sorry if I wasn't clear earlier about the reds, I was only referring to on the pitch things and not the stuff that the refs didn't catch live.

I'm sure Dembele and Lamela are going to get retrospective bans. I didn't see the Vorm incident but from how you are describing it, likely also a ban.

Dier foul on Hazard was a second yellow challenge but I'm not totally sure myself how the rules work there because Clattenburg clearly saw it since he decided to play advantage.

Did he not give the second yellow because he let the play go, or did he just incorrectly not deem it worthy of a second yellow?

Mason's foul on Hazard, I don't believe should be a red, it would've have been harsh.

We had a LOT of late, bad tackles but the number of yellows our players received reflects that. I guess you can also argue Rose got off easy in the 1st half but in that case so did Ivanovic.

Basically, by my summary, not counting the guys that are going to get retrospectively banned (since refs miss those kinds of incidents during the game itself all the time), Dier is the only one who certainly should've got a red; so just the one red that was for sure missed. And I don't think it would've changed the result as it was so late and we likely would've just bunkered down to save the point.
Wow, Chelsea fans be BIASED. I mean, so much to respond to, I cbf responding to it all, but you do realise Cesc moved his hand INTO Lamela's foot? Thats the exact reason why most people are having a laugh at him right now.

In the first half, what about Willian smacking Rose in the face with his hip? What about Terry elbowing Vertonghen? The fact that you can sit there and essentially make it out like Chelsea were the victims is ludicrous. Both teams had a go at each other, and fair dues, it was a London Derby with s**t riding on it (well, for one team at least... I guess 9th place was better than 10th at least). You had a lot of unseed cheap digs at us in the first half, we had some seen heavy tackles in the second half.

And Pochettino pushing Willian over? Hahaha. He was clearly trying to get in between them from stopping them from fighting and getting reds. Have you ever broken up a fight? Theres usually some pushing involved. He literally saved both of them from doing something they'd both regret.

Also, Dembele's eye gouge? What about Costa biting Jan Vertonghen's hand? What about the racist slurs shouted at Vorm throughout the match? If you're gonna paint a picture, use all the colours involved, not the ones that suit you.
+2
^ In addition to everything you mentioned, you forgot that before our players did ANYTHING, Fabregas had a kick out at Dembele.

Not to mention people are all describing Lamela stepping on Fabregas as a stamp.

I mean sure it can't be nice to get cleats in the back of the hand but come on, there's a world of difference between getting your hand stomped on and lightly trodden on.

Also, I was actually laughing at his reaction to that, what a pussy. Like seriously, someone should get a clip of that, he first writhed and yelled in agony for a good half a minute, then got up and started waving his hand around and pointing at it to the referee, all the assistants, and the bench. Hahaha like wtf man Lamela didn't take an axe to your wrist and lop your hand off lol there wasn't even any blood, you literally had someone lightly step on the back of your hand.
Chelsea fans seem to emulate Diego Costa perfectly. Quick to point out everything the opposition does whilst ignoring everything you do yourself to fire it all up in the first place.
Great to see spurs fighting for the title until the last moment.
+1
Depends what you understand under 'fighting'. Walker, Dembélé, Lamela, Mason and Dier could've been sent off. Disappointing.
+2
I posted that at half time. It got really ugly after half time.
+1
thats maybe the fight in their manager showing, poch was a fighter in his playing days.

i call it professional pride plus being a sore loser. every team has them, trust me. typically spurs are not in a position to show it but i guess it's too much to lose it tonight and it's got to them in the end. I have seen it plenty with utd players, Rooney being one of the cheifs in petulance when we are losing or he is personally frustrated. Don't expect it from spurs players, at least not in so many numbers. I think the emotion of the game and clearly the derby/crowd and possibly some motivational speaking and sideline remonstration got them overhypped
+2
Good to see the scoreline, but what a disgraceful game.
+1
Too many bloody cameras lol
+2
Disappointed with our lack of discipline. The Chelsea players and the occasion has got under their skin. Our fullbacks have been running around like adrenalin junkies and Dembele has likely earned himself a retrospective ban.
+3
Yeah, I must say I'm disappointed with Moussa. He's usually calmness itself.
+1
really unlike dembele, not sure what that was about.
+1
Dembele and Vertonghen are best friends so the only explanation I can think of was he got angry at the tussles between Jan and Diego that were happening.
+1
Goal!!!!!!!
"The pubs of Leicester are silent"
For now....
Here comes the son!!!!!
Alrighty then! We f****d up against West Brom, but over 38 games, there will be some games that every fan(barring the winning team) who would look back & wonder what if they hadn't dropped points in that match or that match.

2nd place? I'll take it.
1st place? Unrealistic but let's make them win it on Sunday(if they can)

PS: Let's stuff the loud-mouthed underachievers tonight, shall we? :)

PPS: Son in for Alli. COYS
Not going to be able to watch live today. Stuck in jury duty... Let's go out and smash Chelsea! COYS!
+2
O man, good luck dude. Enjoy the break from work!
Deliver a verdict soon! We have a match in 30 mins. :P
GUILTY!

Now go watch the game! :D
