Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for. After four games in which Spurs had looked more interested in their forthcoming holiday arrangements than in the remaining fixtures of the Premier League season, Spurs finally rediscovered their mojo with a convincing 3-1 victory away at Newcastle. Tottenham started with commitment and passion and, as they gradually played their way back into form, added talent and creativity to their effort. It's a win that now makes them firm favourites to qualify...
Most Tottenham fans never expected a top-four finish this season, so the fact they are almost certain to miss out will not be a cause for great dismay.
The goal was always gradual improvement -- yet another transitional season but hopefully the last one for a while, at least, with the promise of better things just around the corner.
There has been evidence of progress, especially at the start of 2015 when Spurs put five goals past Chelsea and then beat Arsenal at White Hart Lane, while reaching...

Sum up Kane's season
A comfortable 9/10. At the start of the season, it seemed unlikely Kane would get a first team start in any competition other than the Europa League. Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor were both well ahead of Kane in coach Mauricio Pochettino's preferred list of strikers.
Now, the Spaniard and the Togolese...
The mood has changed in the Premier League.
Forget almost everything you were hearing even a few months ago. Back then, so we all thought, Manchester City had such a talented squad that they might easily overhaul Chelsea at the top. Manchester United were a disjointed outfit that surely could not make the top four as Louis van Gaal groped hopelessly for a winning formula. Arsenal fans were, as usual, bombarding radio stations with calls for Arsene Wenger to go.
Liverpool were labouring in a midtable...
Reasons to be cheerful have proved few and far between at Aston Villa this season, so with a rare chance to celebrate cropping up this weekend, the club have seized their opportunity to milk it for all it's worth.
Following Villa's impressive 1-0 victory against manager Tim Sherwood's former club Tottenham on Saturday afternoon, the rejuvenated club posted a highlight reel of their boss' various jubilant full-time celebrations on their official YouTube channel.
The video contains almost two full...
Tottenham were frustrated, failing to score for the second game in a row, and Tim Sherwood enjoyed a perfect return to White Hart Lane as his Aston Villa side departed with all three points in a 1-0 away win.
After last Sunday's dull goalless draw at Burnley, Tottenham's fans were hoping for a bit of entertainment, if nothing else, but they saw little to raise their spirits.
Christian Benteke continued his scoring spree for Villa, heading home during a first half in which Spurs struggled for creativity...
