Whilst that doesn’t sound like a good thing, Tottenham centre back, Ledley King, is confident that his team came make the most of a bad situation. They’ll need to make the most of it since they’re currently sitting 2 points clear of the relegation zone!
We are not consistent enough, and we need to transfer our cup form into our matches in the League.
We are already thinking about the Middlesbrough game. Going on these cup runs should give us confidence, as should competing against the top teams in the finals.
‘We have proved, on our day, we can match the top sides. It is a big contrast to beating Chelsea in last year’s final, but we felt we did well.’ (The Daily Mail)
There’s something about teams like Tottenham and Liverpool that leave you scratching your head when you see them playing in cup games versus the league. For Tottenham, their bread and butter has been the Carling Cup or late, whilst Liverpool’s would surely be the Champions League. Given the fact that Tottenham looked have once again looked so strong in their cup run, you’d expect them to be able to recreate that the rest of the way now that they no longer have to press on multiple stages, right?
