I was disappointed at first as the photos had faded but I then decided that they are not permanent and we and the landscape are not permanent and the fade had added to the project and the fading seemed to add something to the whole thing.

Crystal Palace 1 Spurs 1

Spurs will be playing European football for the 11th successive season next term after picking up a vital point against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.

Needing to better the result of Wolves in their game at Chelsea, we drew 1-1 in south London thanks to Harry Kane’s early goal, while Wolves went down 2-0 at Stamford Bridge which meant we climbed above them into sixth in the Premier League, a position which guarantees our place in next season’s Europa League.

Kane scored his 18th league goal of the campaign to fire us ahead in the 13th minute, but that was cancelled out by Jeffrey Schlupp’s finish eight minutes after the interval. It led to a scrappy second half as we looked to hold onto the result, with chances few and far between for both sides. But it was the final outcome that mattered most and we did what was required on the last day of the elongated season.

Jose Mourinho made his first change to the starting line-up since the derby win against Arsenal on 12 July, and the following wins against Newcastle United and Leicester City, with Eric Dier back from suspension and in for Davinson Sanchez to partner Toby Alderweireld in central defence. Dele was also back and came off the bench after missing five games with a hamstring issue.

Giovani Lo Celso tested Vicente Guaita in the fourth minute but the Palace keeper saved comfortably, before we opened the scoring nine minutes later. Lo Celso was stronger in the tackle than James McArthur and came away with the ball 30 yards from goal. He slipped a pass in to Kane, who controlled with his left foot and shot with his right, low into the bottom corner past Guaita. A couple of swift counter-attacks almost brought about further opportunities to extend our advantage but the final ball was just missing on each occasion and instead, it was Palace with the next shot on target, Hugo Lloris gathering Schlupp’s low 20-yard drive.

Lucas Moura produced an incredible mazy run to weave past three defenders and then beat Guiata to the ball on the corner of the six-yard box, sliding it across the face of goal but no-one was there to tap home. With a lead to defend, we were quite content to drop back and allow Palace to have the ball in front of us, then springing a counter whenever we won back possession. The hosts also had a string of corners and free-kicks which they sent into the area, but we defended resolutely and without too much concern, taking our narrow advantage into the interval.

Just two minutes into the second half, Alderweireld glanced a Lo Celso corner just over the crossbar but the scores were level in the 53rd minute. A deep corner from James McCarthy was headed back by Scott Dann towards Jordan Ayew, who missed his kick, but the ball rolled kindly for Schlupp and he slammed it into the roof of the net. Lucas went close on the hour mark, volleying Ben Davies’ inviting cross just wide, while there was a scary moment at the other end as Joel Ward’s cross from the right took a slight deflection on its way into the box and hit the near post before we cleared our lines.

There was very little goalmouth action of note in the final quarter of the contest as both sides struggled to find any real rhythm in attacking areas, neither goalkeeper being tested at all. We made changes to freshen it up throughout the last 30 minutes, although we had one final scare when Dann headed just wide from Luka Milivojevic’s cross in the 92nd minute, but the final whistle blew a minute later to call time on our 2019/20 season – a unique campaign of football which will never be forgotten in the history of the game.

Broken Dream

Justin Hayward

One more illusion shattered, one more broken dream
Oh, that the morning brings the sun
Gone are the days when I could bounce right back again
See how the tears flow down like sweet summer rain
Where does it leave me now?
I find myself so free again

Even the smallest traces of your sweet perfume
Open the floodgates and I’m helpless
Now, as the moonlight shadows, cast across my room
Only the whispered words are heard in the night
Only a silent prayer, I love you still, I always will

Out of the dark, I stumbled into the light
Only my fear has tumbled, I think, I always knew
That I would run to you

Somewhere there’s children playing, somewhere far away
Running with open arms to greet me
Over the hill, the sunset dies and fades away
I turn and I close the door with one last goodbye
I will return no more, I’ll take my heart and let it fly

Spurs 3 Leicester 0

Harry Kane was back to his best as Spurs kept their European hopes alive with a 3-0 thumping of Leicester City that puts a significant dent in the Foxes’ Champions League ambitions.

With Manchester United and Chelsea busy in FA Cup action, the visitors had the chance to seize the initiative in the top four race but they had no answer to Kane, who scored twice after James Justin’s own goal had opened the scoring.

The hosts took the lead after just six minutes as Kane’s terrific outside-of-the-boot pass sent Son Heung-Min away down the left and when the Korean cut back inside his shot took a wicked deflection off Justin and beat Kasper Schmeichel at his near post.

The Foxes responded well, Jamie Vardy a constant threat, and would have been level through a quality chest and volley from Ayoze Perez were it not for a superb low stop from Hugo Lloris.

However, Kane’s quickfire double put the game to bed before half-time. First, the England captain raced the length of the field to cap a lightning Spurs break with a smart left-footed finish into the far corner.

Then, two minutes later, he produced a wonderful curling effort from a tight angle that gave Schmeichel no chance and made it 3-0.

Brendan Rodgers reacted by sending on Demarai Gray at half-time and the winger tested Lloris with a dipping free-kick that the Frenchman had to help over the bar.
