Spurs remain in touching distance of the top four, kept outside of the hallowed Champions League places on goal difference. That difference is so acute, however, that it's hard to avoid the sneaking suspicion that it might prove crucial at the end of the season. With a significant gap between fifth and sixth spot, there's every chance the sides currently occupying the first five places will look the same come the end of May. But will it be Champions League or Europa League for Tottenham Hotspur?
In recent weeks the focus has been on the team’s misfiring strikers and on Harry's failure to bring in a forward during the January transfer window, despite being associated with just about everyone going. Peter Crouch puts in a good effort when he plays but two league goals is a pretty abysmal haul for a centre forward. Even Alan Hutton has achieved that total and has had fewer appearances in which to do it. Jermain Defoe has admittedly suffered with injury but has looked worryingly out of sorts in recent weeks. The fact that he has not scored at all in the league this season is no doubt preying on his mind and perhaps a goal would help turn his season around. Fabio Capello would have been given plenty to think about as he watched Crouch and Defoe line up against Bolton.
With Robbie Keane off to West Ham - where, naturally, he scored on his first start - that leaves Roman Pavlyuchenko as Spurs' remaining out and out striker. Despite the fact that he has outscored both of his teammates, he continues to be the third choice option, a fact that has led him once again to start talking about a move away. The manager has hardly poured oil on troubled waters with his comments on this situation - "If he's not happy then he will have to sort it out with the chairman. It's up to Super Pav, isn't it?"
The sarcastic tone of Redknapp's remarks may have been unintentional. It's also possible that he was not thinking of the Russian striker in his comments praising Spurs' saviour against Bolton, Niko Kranjcar:
"He's continued to work hard and show the right attitude, continued to train even after training, do his sprints, his running, spends time shooting every day and generally shows a great attitude. He's not one of the boys who throws the towel in and spits his dummy out when he's left out of the team, he's the exact opposite to that."
Whether or not Pavlyuchenko can be regarded as having "spat the dummy" is open to question, but there can be no doubt that Kranjcar is not only a gifted footballer but also a conscientious and grounded individual. With the addition of Pletikosa, Harry now has four Croatians in the first team-squad and this is not the first time he has had occasion to commend their attitude, either individually or as a group. The chances are, however, that Kranjcar will leave the club if, as seems likely, he continues to warm the bench. That would be a great shame since - as his wonder strike at the weekend showed - he has plenty to offer in a Spurs shirt.
