A new Supporters Centre for Spurs Achievements has been set up; looks nice.

Well, nobody's questioning your resilience and loyalty. At times us Flames fans, must be able to really empathize being a Spurs fan. Lots of parallels.... <sigh>

Well, that would be nice. There is one other collapse we can all hold out hope for!

If you had a choice, the Flames digging deep or an Arsenal collapse, what would it be?

You canít have both.

BBC backed down on Lineker

They wont do an actual review on policies about impartiality since he wasnt the only one who has done it, including people in and running the news division, so hes back Saturday and nothings changed

So just all in all a lesson on how to turn a minor event if a few idiots on twitter into an actual or disaster

Wait.

Elaborate on "digging deep". I'm undecided for now.

I assumed he was saying the Flames go on a tear and make the playoffs. That would be digging deep, I’d say?

Just the playoffs? I'd be of a split mind, if it were playoffs then winning the division.

Monumental collapse it is.

Well, if they were to make the playoffs now - theyíd be on a tear and trending towards LA Kings style chances when they made the playoffs as the 8th seed for their first Cup.

Iíd even take an Arsenal collapse for that.

A five point lead with 11 games left is hardly what I would consider a collapse, especially not with a H2H left. If they blow a five point lead with three games left, sure, but if Man City caught them from here it wouldn't be that much of a collapse. Disappointing, of course, but collapse is a pretty strong word.

Well youíre just wrong. It would be a collapse and didnít they have some massive lead at some point? Maybe itís 5 points now, but it was more before.

You can filter the league table by matchweek on the offical EPL website:

I'm open to correction, but five points appears to be the biggest gap of the season.

Yeah, I wouldn’t call it a collapse either at this point. The team hit a difficult patch a month ago where it could have gone horribly. It began to look like Manchester United could catch them, but they dealt with it well and have won five in a row since.

City are accomplished at firing up the jets in the run in and Arsenal have a very hard schedule with dates at City and Anfield and home to a starting to look resurgent Chelsea. I think the five point lead and the strength of City make this a coin toss.

Losing a coin toss isn’t a collapse.

Also, if you told me at the start of the season, Arsenal would be in this position and providing so much entertainment, I’d never have believed you.

The life of a sports fan is a funny one. Arsenal are exactly what I thought the Flames would be and the Flames are closer to what I thought Arsenal would be this season.

In my life it was only 1989 when I could have it all. And it all came in the space of two days.

I guess itís because of the games in hand and messed up schedule? I know that they had an eight point lead at one point and things were looking grim.

Sports can be weird for sure, and sometimes the margins between what seems like a catastrophe and winning it all are so small. Hockey in particular seems like a few bounces or things like that make an enormous impact at times.

All that said, itís a collapse. You have a five point lead and control your destiny. If Spurs had to hear about ďthird in a two horse raceĒ in a season in which they never lead (in fact, Arsenal did and they bottled it!), a five point lead is a collapse.

I donít think itís a coin toss though. Itís a pretty clear advantage because you need to drop points and City has to win. The league has a lot of parity and winning isnít a foregone conclusion.
