Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Scott Parker has said if the club does not finish at least fourth in the Premier League this season then the campaign should be regarded as a failure, the
With five matches of the league season still to play Tottenham are indeed fourth but are level on points with in-form Newcastle United and have Chelsea, 5-1 conquerors of Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday, also on their coat tails. Parker is quoted as saying: “If we don’t end up in fourth this year, we’ll have failed as a squad.”
Fourth is the final position to offer entry into the Champions League, with a play-off necessary to gain entry into the group stages. The last time Spurs made the Champions League, in the 2010-11 season, Harry Redknapp’s side overcame Swiss outfit Young Boys in the qualifier, losing 3-2 in the away leg only to hit four goals without reply at White Hart Lane, eventually prevailing 6-3 on aggregate.
