In what can only be described as a beer fueled discussion on the Vital Arsenal forum, one member asked the question, ‘Do you think Spurs will get relegated?.

As funny as that would be, it’s not going to happen, but The Prof charts the reasons why Spurs are suffering and the problems they will encounter in the coming months.

I think that Spurs are discovering how hard it is to break into a top four team, as usual the Spurs arrogance last season was based on absolutely nothing, no trophies, no convincing wins against big sides and crucially no balls.

This season it is going to be even harder for them; they have Europe to deal with, higher expectations and much more games. Spurs really thought that just having one decent season qualified them as top four material and somehow on the way to surpassing Arsenal. To win anything in the Prem, you have to firstly beat Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal, I don’t see Spurs doing that anytime soon, unfortunately I don’t see them getting relegated either.

I just see this as a timely reality check, last season they had absolutely everything going for them to get fourth place, our Premiership form was bad, we were distracted by Europe, they only had to play about 5 games in comparison to our 352, yet they still bottled it, I personally don’t think they will get a better chance and I also think their final day f**k up exposed the difference between us and them – we have the mentality and capability to cross that all important line and become winners, Spurs don’t – and that’s not even my opinion, that’s a fact based on stats.

So for Spurs, relegation no, back to a mediocre mid table team with a superiority complex, a very real possibility.
