'For me as a manager it would be important to win the title, not the FA Cup. But it's impossible at Spurs.
'Top four though, say if one club falls out of the top four, Liverpool or Arsenal, why shouldn't we take up that position? Why not?'
Those my friends, are the words of Tottenham manager, Martin Jol.
Now, there are several good reasons he cannot get our ickle neighbours into the top 4.
There's no chance of Liverpool dropping out of the top 4 with the imminent arrival of Fernando Torres, as well as several other players thought to be on their way in.
Arsenal may have lost their skipper and all-time top scorer in Thierry Henry, but Arsenal beat Spurs twice last season without their skipper. Indeed we beat them with a team of kids.
Arsenal will strengthen - that my loyal readers, is a fact. I'm not going to go on and on about all the injured players we had last season, you know all about them, but that is another factor.
Those words at the start of the article also come from the man who has said twice (once last month, and once 2 years ago) that under his guidance, Spurs can challenge for the title in 2 or 3 years. He says a month later that Spurs cannot win the title?
I don't need to write any more on the matter, you can all see he's discredited himself.
