    Is it just me, or spurs have had one of the worst runs with injury this season (except everton) yet none of the media seem to mention it at all. Everytime Spurs have a poor game they are critisied but teams like pool who only have 1 or 2 players out seem to use it as an excuse.

    We have probley had as many injuries as Everton but theres all come at once while ours was spread over the whole season taking turns to get knocks.

    I see what you mean by the media do, they make a massive thing about Jagielka being injured back no mention of Woodgate. I think the majority of the press have it in for Tottenham where they see Everton in a different light as they have not spent as much money. The same reporting standards are not held when it comes to Chelsea, City, Utd or Liverpool do who spend massive amounts but get good reporting.

    Not much we can do about it. Nor am I that bothered that The Sun et al don't give us much credit. To hell with em. Plus without injuries we may not have seen the best out of Bale and the likes of Pav and Bentley would have been written off as flops. Not saying it's been ideal having so many injuries though, just trying to think positive.
