So the Bank Holiday weekend brought a glimpse of three of life's greatest rarities: the British sunshine, a clean sheet and an away win for Spurs.

We were even treated to an elusive Robbie Keane goal, so something really must have been in the spring air.

We won't often come up against an attack as toothless as Reading's, but it was pleasing to see us set out and do the expected job for once.

It's been a funny old season, but we get the chance to end it on a bit of a high by sneaking into the top half with a win over Liverpool at the Lane on Sunday.

It may have been a look into our future too, with Dimitar Berbatov sitting out amid the ever-present whispers of his impending departure.

Darren Bent looked more like the player we signed and was unlucky not to bag a goal, but ultimately the criticism that could be levelled at the team was for wastefulness in front of goal once again.

So despite an apparent abundance of attacking riches, and a very impressive "goals for" column, it may well be that a new goalscorer will be on the shopping list whatever the outcome with our beloved Bulgarian.

The final curtain comes down on the season on Sunday, and it would be nice to bow out with a morale-boosting league win over one of the "big four" who may well be in our sights next term.

Many eyes will be on the lap of honour for signs of those saying goodbyes, and it's certain some familiar faces won't be with us next year.

Here's to a fitting farewell to them in this up and down nine months.
