Europe Remains A Long Shot For Tottenham

They might be unbeaten under new manager Juande Ramos but that hasn’t stopped Tottenham’s Dimitar Berbatov admitting that his team are unlikely to be playing in Europe next season. Nothing like positive thinking! He said in the Guardian:

“It will be very difficult for us,” he said. “I am realistic and I know it will be difficult.”

At the time of writing, Spurs lie in 14th place, some fifteen points behind sixth-placed Aston Villa. However, with the likes of Man City, Portsmouth, Blackburn and Everton all likely to be vying for UEFA Cup spots, it’s clear that there’ll be plenty of points being dropped by those teams above them.

As previously reported, Tottenham’s main problem is in defence and it’s a question of whether they pick up some wins, despite the likelihood of conceding at the back in every match. For Ramos, the January transfer window probably can’t come quickly enough with experience in defense a priority.
