Harry: It's 'possible', yes.
Headline: 'We can win title, roars Spurs boss'.
Other teams' fans: Ha, look at them getting carried away
Media (when Spurs inevitably drop points): So, Harry, do you still think you're going to win the league?
Harry: I never said I thought we were going to win the league! You asked me if I thought it was possible and, to avoid lying, I said yes!
Headline: 'Harry cools Spurs title talk!'
Other teams' fans: Ha, what an embarrassing climbdown.
Reality: We were never likely to win the league, but it remains 'possible', I suppose. What's probable is a battle for third and fourth with Arsenal and Chelsea (worse news for them than us) and, it seems, most of the Premier League officials. (Sorry, can only be rational for so long)
