I have a confession to make: I've avoided writing about Tottenham over the last few weeks in the hopes that Tottenham would undergo a rebirth of form that would allow us to forget about their numerous struggles down the stretch.
But unfortunately, it's now impossible to ignore the rot. From being 10 points clear of Arsenal in mid-February, we've not only been passed by the Gunners, but a superb effort from Newcastle United has seen them knock us out of fourth place as well.
The doomsday prediction of Tottenham not making the Champions League is well on course to becoming a reality.
Though it won't cheer me—or any other Tottenham fan—up, it's time to take a closer look at what's going wrong. First, we'll take a look at the players who haven't been performing at the level expected of them.
