Tottenham Win Two on the Trot, but Are They Safe from the Drop?

Chris SquirrellContributor IMarch 5, 2009

Following two successive Premier League wins against Hull City and Middlesbrough, and a very encouraging performance against Manchester United in the Carling Cup Final, are Spurs safe from the drop?

To put it in a family friendly context, this season for Spurs has been rather disappointing.

A reported £40 million was spent in the summer by former manager Juande Ramos and a very pleasing group of results in preseason followed.

But the league campaign, like last season, has been a travesty.

The current Tottenham boss, Harry Redknapp, however, has turned the club's fortunes significantly and has somehow managed to claw Tottenham out of the relegation zone and into a much more comfortable position.

But, with 11 league games to go, the club is still just four points ahead of the relegation zone and I believe a call for consistency is in order.

Stability has been the Lilywhite's main problem over the last decade or so.

Constant managerial change and, obviously with it, change in player personnel are the only semblances of consistency at White Hart Lane.

I do believe Tottenham will be more than safe this season, but if Spurs wants to move on as a club we need Mr. Levy to stick with Harry, whatever the situation!

Personally, with the current form of West Brom and Middlesbrough, and the difficult fixtures Newcastle face, I tip these three teams to plunge into the dreaded depths of the Championship.

As for Tottenham, I hope we claim a top half, but, to be perfectly honest I don't care where we finish this season just as long as it's out of that relegation zone.

Just one last quick fact for you...Tottenham haven't been in the top half of the table since the last day of the 2006-07 season where we finished fifth.
