Deja Jol?

With all the usual media coverage focused on Spurs at the start of the season, I thought I’d point something out:

After six Premiership games LAST SEASON, Spurs had taken just four points – which will be the exact same total after the defeat to Arsenal on September 15th.

The similarities don’t end there. Below are the first six games from last season’s Premier League campaign:

Bolton 2-0 Tottenham
Tottenham 2-0 Sheff Utd
Tottenham 0-2 Everton
Man Utd 1-0 Tottenham
Tottenham 0-0 Fulham
Liverpool 3-0 Tottenham

So, Spurs had…

An opening day defeat.
A home win against a newly promoted side
A two goal defeat at home to Everton
A 1-0 defeat at Manchester United
A draw against Fulham
A defeat against a 'top four club' (to be confirmed)

Yet they still finished fifth and were UEFA and Carling Cup Semi-Finalists and FA Cup Quarter Finalists.

Dont panic just yet, don’t believe everything you read, and for f**k sake give Martin Jol a break.
