Fin. Today marks the last game of Tottenham Hotspur's season, and it seems for most Spurs fans that is not coming a day too soon. It was a season of transition for Spurs, learning to play under new manager Mauricio Pochettino. There was a strong start and a cup run this season, but Spurs have looked listless after being knocked out the Europa League and losing the League Cup Final. All that is left to play for is league placing. Will Spurs come to play in their season finale?

Spurs travel to Everton today, who are currently sitting in 10th place. Everton have had their own disappointing season, as the team has been nowhere near the top-4 race after being tipped to be a contender in preseason. Everton still have their threats though, as Romelu Lukaku can pour in the goals, while Aiden McGeady may come back into the side to replace Spurs loanee Aaron Lennon.

As for the Prediction League, Cale and Ben are all tied up entering the season finale, so winner takes all. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League -- one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

Ben Daniels 27
Michael Caley 27
Dominic Wood 22
Kevin 19
Brett Rainbow 17
Mechanick 16
Salmon Chase 15
Dustin Gerber Martin 15
Bryan A. 14
Skipjack 12

This week's predictions:

Dustin Gerber Martin: Is the season not over yet? Really? Ok, 1-0 Spurs, whatever, let's sign Schneiderlin.

Kevin: Everton sucks, 3-0 Spurs

Mechanick: An unspectacular end to an unspectacular season. 1-1 Draw

Bryan A.: I predict that I'm not going to win this stupid competition, no matter what happens. 5-0 Spurs.

Salmon Chase: 8-0 Spurs, Ryan Mason scores them all, proves the masthead wrong, gets a crazy amount of hype and holds up two middle fingers while he runs off to Madrid for 20 million.

Ben Daniels: 2-1 Spurs. Like Happy Gilmore, I'm going to bank my shot off the car and the fallen tower and go for the win right now.

Dominic Wood: 100-0 Spurs. Just cuz.

Michael Caley: 2-1 Everton. How do you want to play this, Ben?

Skipjack: 3-0 Spurs. The Spirit of Kevin is alive in England.

Brett Rainbow: 4-0 Spurs. Despite all evidence, Ed still wishes Roberto Martinez managed Spurs.
