You Just Couldn`t Have Dreamed This One Up!

You Just Couldn`t Have Dreamed This One Up!

Oh deary me someone is going to be mightily disappointed come next Saturday evening aren`t they?

Yesterday, the fates conspired sufficiently to dump Tottenham Hotspur into that 4th Champions League qualification place when Arsenal got that late winner up at the Hawthorns.

Now normally, that lot up at White Hart Lane would be dancing a jig of joy at having qualified for the Champions League, but there`s a huge spanner that could yet be thrown into the works.

You see UEFA have contrived to maximize the number of teams England can have participating in the competition to four. There`s also a cute little rule that allows the winners to defend the trophy the following season, a rule that I`d imagine will, this morning, be receiving short shrift from those in N17.

It`s public knowledge that, next Saturday, Chelsea need to win the Champions League Final, against Munich, to be in the Champions League competition next season.

Therefore, it`s no surprise that the White Hart Lane fraternity have jumped on the Bayern Munich bandwagon, singing the names of the Bavarian club in the dying stages of their home win over Fulham yesterday.

We`re also led to believe that some enterprising traders, outside the ground, were flogging t-shirts bearing the slogan - Bayern Munich Supporters Club - North London Branch.

Uncle Harry, aware that nephew Frank could kybosh his dreams has also come out and spouted,

"Frank knows there`s no love lost. My allegiance is only to Tottenham. He understands that."

"I want Tottenham in the Champions League next year. We`ve done all we can."

Now normally I`d get on my high-horse and start berating the lot of them, but, having thought long and hard about it, I have to admit that if the boot was on the other foot, I`d probably be singing from same hymn sheet!

Which if I`m to be brutally honest; would make a win in the Allianz Arena on Saturday even sweeter.

All odds are against us to win in Munich... Just the way we like it!

Would of preffered arsenal in 4th but none the less Spurs isnt a bad alternative. A win would basically mean a win on 3 fronts, its massive that we win!
14/05/2012 16:47:00
Makes the win in Munich that much sweeter!!! Those arrogant Spurs fans that come on Vital Chelsea and bash our supporters and club will get their justice from us come May 19th. :)

It's only fair to say that if we don't win the CL final, it will leave an even bitter taste knowing Spuds get to play in the CL and we don't. In other words, we better feckin win it!
14/05/2012 16:55:00
There is extra incentive of winning it now that Spuds have finished 4th.
14/05/2012 17:02:00
Would have loved the gooners to finish 4th,but then i hate spuds just as much.
14/05/2012 17:25:00
U cant really fault d spurs fan. They worked hard for 4th and honestly they deserve it. We can only pray and hope that our own team win on d 19th.

Wenger has ensured that arsenal have been in the champions league all 16 yrs he has been arsenal boss but in all those 16 yrs none has been more remarkable than what he achieved this lose Fabregas and Nasri and then Wiltshere all season and the other extended injury spells they endured..say what you will about le professor but you need to respect the mans ability to cobble together a team from almost nothing. For us with spurs in 4th i cannot begin to imagine just how painful it would be not to win on the 19th...on the other hand when we win on the 19th i would really love to see ol Arrys face and those of the some of the more obnoxious spurs would be so poetic for them to come so close and then be relegated again to play in the Europa league....lets make it happen!!!
14/05/2012 17:26:00
winning the Champions League final would be akin to winning £1 million on the lottery...and the Spuds not getting CL football because of it would be akin to a £1 million bonus on top !!!
14/05/2012 17:34:00
i like your analogy @springy, i would add to that bonus of kicking spurs out of cl and into europa league comes with a mental punch to their arrogance and over confidence on top of the 1m bonus! lol :)

I 'm loving every bit of this chelsea's journey to glory, the odds being against us is no news any more as that has been our story right from the begining of the season till this stage. They said VALENCIA would gualify at our expense but we destroyed them in less than 45minutes, they said NAPOLI would get us knocked out but we finished them, they predicted BENFICA would help put an end to our dream, yet we put them to the sword home and away and they said BARCELONA would disgrace us but it went sweetly the opposite way. We didn't only get them knocked out but we forced their manager into premature resignation. HERE IS MY PROPHESY; Bayer munich will sack their manager on monday 21st of may 2012 after we must have disgrace tnem. CONGRATULATIONS IN ADVANCE TO EVERY CHELSEA FAN ALL OVER THE WORLD

I dont have a good feeling bout this. Keep your words fornow, we dont what will happen on the 19th. Hope for the best tho.
14/05/2012 18:30:00
If chelsea should win the champions league on 19th & qualify as holders, does it mean arsenal 'll play the qualifers or the four england team makes it to the group stages?

@springy. sorry mate i would rather win £1 million on the lottery than chelsea win the champions league next
14/05/2012 18:52:00
I face a similar scenario as my son, to my shame is a spuds fan! It only happened cos his Mum & me split when he was just getting into footie and his big sister started going out with a lad who was a spuds apprentice. Didn't make the grade but made a big impression on my lad, tantamount to child abuse I'd say. So he understandably wants us to fail on Saturday but he WILL BE DISAPPOINTED.
14/05/2012 18:53:00
This is absolutely fair enough, I don't blame Harry for this one at all. In fact, I will be in a minority but knocking them out of the CL would give me no pleasure at all, it is grossly unfair! The winners should obviously qualify but so should the team who earns it over the course of the whole season. Obviously, I desperately hope we win it but I will feel sorry for all the genuine Sp*rs fans out there.
14/05/2012 19:25:00
to be brutally honest, Spurs deserve the final champions league spot than us. they ve had a downturn in their fortunes in the last 3 month but sure as hell deserve the place more than us. but life is not fair. so come 19th, i hope we win.
14/05/2012 19:29:00
For a laugh go to
14/05/2012 20:47:00
No sympathy for the Sp*ds from me...if we lose they won't ever let us forget...just remember that when you get a pang of sympathy for them...i live in Norf London for 20 years now and they will be unbearable if we lose...them losing their CL place will be the icing on the cake for me KTBFFH
14/05/2012 21:10:00
So don't sink to their level blueleader01, don't you see that makes you just as bad as them?
