So now that the transfer window is closed and the dust has settled, it is time to reflect on what was a cracking window for both Chelsea and Spurs. It is not often you can say that about a deadline day but when both sides managed to get a deal over the line for some of the best attacking talent around it was hard to argue with the excitement.
The players have all had time to bed in and the initial excitement has worn off so for those who are still obsessed with the pair, here are 5 reasons why it’s time to stop talking about them.
1. You’re boring everyone else
2. There’s more than two teams in London
3. There is more to life than football
4. They’re not actually that good
5. They will never win anything
Chelsea and Tottenham have dominated the headlines this week, so here are five reasons why it’s time to stop talking about them
1. They’ve been written off before
2. They’re not going to be relegated
3. Neither of them are in the bottom three
4. They’re still in the FA Cup
5. They could both still finish in the top four
Chelsea and Tottenham haven’t been in the same league since the 2016/17 season, but that hasn’t stopped them from being linked with each other.
The two clubs were drawn against each other in the FA Cup semi-finals for the third time in four years, with the Blues winning on all three occasions.
Chelsea and Tottenham have also met in three of the last four Premier League campaigns, with Spurs winning twice and Chelsea once.
While Chelsea and Tottenham may not be rivals on paper, their recent history has led to some heated clashes between the sides in both league and cup competitions.
So why are they still talking about each other?
For one thing, they share a lot of history.
They have both had managers who played for both clubs: Andre Villas-Boas, who is now at Tottenham, was at Chelsea during Jose Mourinho’s first stint as manager; while Roberto Di Matteo was at Chelsea under Luiz Felipe Scolari, who is now at Spurs.
They have also had players who have played for both teams: Michael Ballack and Ricardo Carvalho were at Chelsea under Mourinho before joining Spurs; while Frank Lampard spent eight years at Stamford Bridge before joining Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
Chelsea and Tottenham have been the talk of the town all season. They are seen by many as two of the best teams in the league, and rightly so. But with Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal all vying for a Champions League place, it’s time to talk about something else.
1.Their Fans Are Too Loud
2.Their Players Dont Look Like They Enjoy Playing Football
3.They Have A Lot Of Foreign Players
4.There Fans Are Not As Loyal As They Claim To Be
5.They Have Been Very Lucky This Season
With the Premier League title and Champions League spots all wrapped up, All eyes now turn to the battle at the bottom of the table.
The race to avoid relegation is on with Hull City, Swansea City, Burnley and Queens Park Rangers fighting for survival.
The relegation battle was always going to go down to the last day of the season, and it is a four horse race between these sides which has been dragging on for months.
But there is another battle raging in English football, one which has gone on for far too long.
I am talking about Chelsea and Tottenham. It seems that every week there is a new ‘angle’ or ‘storyline’ regarding these two clubs.
There was the touchline fight between Tim Sherwood and Jose Mourinho towards the beginning of the season, and then came the John Terry racism allegations when Chelsea triumphed over Spurs in the Capital One Cup final.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Gareth Bale stole all of their thunder by scoring a hat-trick just days after they had faced each other at Stamford Bridge.
Now there are rumours that Spurs are considering sacking Tim Sherwood despite him guiding them into sixth place in his first managerial role; making him the most successful manager in the club’s history
1. Chelsea are no longer in the title race
2. Tottenham have never been in the title race
3. Leicester City are still in the title race
4. Spurs will be looking to make up for the lack of silverware this season…
5. Chelsea have already won the league and FA Cup double last year
As a lifelong Spurs fan, I’ve been craving a good laugh in the last couple of days. We were humiliated against Man City on Saturday, and we had to hear about how fantastic Leicester are for the next 48 hours.
But rather than take solace in Schadenfreude at our local rivals, I thought that it would be better if I looked for laughter elsewhere.

The Daily Mail is one of my favourite sources of comedy, as they have a knack for making every game look like it was more boring than a 0–0 draw between Fulham and Watford in 1993.
And that’s exactly what they did here, as they somehow made this look like a dull game between two midtable sides and ignored the fact that Sturridge scored again, and is now on fire again (just ignore the fact that he
