Every year the only thing that changes is the person saying it.

This year it’s Ledley King who, let’s face it, has been around long enough to know better.

I’d run though every player that has said that this was ‘their year‘ but I don’t think one post could quite handle that much hilarity.

So, for now, I simply present you with Ledley’s latest gem:

“Finishing above Arsenal would be the icing on the cake.

“I think the gap has been closing over the years to the point where there is not much between the two teams any more.

“I think what Arsenal have had is stability over the years and we haven’t really had that.

“Now we have more stability.

“For the first time in a while, everyone can see the clear picture of where we are trying to go.”

He then went on to claim that winning the League Cup would see this Spurs team ‘make history,’ a statement you might expect from a club in the Championship in their first ever final, something that might also point somewhat to Spurs’ problem.

Then again, this is a club that lists the Southern League, Western League, Norwich Charity Cup, Norwich Hospital Charity Cup and Japan Cup amongst its honours on their official website.

We hear all the time that the ‘gap is closing‘ or that Tottenham are close to overtaking Arsenal.

Unless I fell asleep and missed a few things, I’m pretty sure Spurs are 11 league titles, three FA Cups and one unbeaten season away from closing anything on Arsenal.

Still, it’s the League Cup that makes the difference, right?
