...Teesside. Spurs moved up to second in the Premier League table after securing a win over Middlesbrough in their unbeaten start to the league campaign.
...alright, a.k.a. Wimmer's Alive. Maurico Pochettino took the renamed League Cup seriously by fielding the under 12 side that went out and stuffed Gillingham, five nothing.
...cloud. At the end of Spurs one nil annihilation of Sunderland you wondered if the result was worth the injuries as Spurs players were dropping like flies.

...dampish squib. Well we should be grateful for small mercies as the usual slow start to Spurs season with a first game loss was avoided with the one all draw away to Everton.
