...season. A struggle at Norwich, during which Gareth Bale charged through the hosts, scored and he stopped being a left winger. He did it to save a point here.
...in the Cup. No matter who we're talking about here from Jimmy Greaves through to anyone of those linked with a move to White Hart Lane during this transfer window. It wouldn't stop Spurs losing to Leeds Utd. in the Cup.
...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...United. Forget the Mayans, forget the snow surely Spurs grabbing a last minute equaliser in added time against Manchester United is more a sign of the apocalypse than anything.
...nah then. It were grand news when announced a few weeks back that the 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ would start and take in two stages in Yorkshire.
...it killed itself. Crap prices, crap stock, little outside the piled high mainstream rubbish that's being downloaded to interest those that actually want a physical product. That's what killed the last high street record shop chain.
..fighting all the way. In her preprepared retirement speech the Welsh cyclist gave it both barrels and then reloaded to fire off a few more direct hits.
...an early kick-off. As if Andre Villas-Boas being named manager of the month for December wasn't bad enough the first game after the award announcement was a 12:45 Saturday kick-off against 'Arry's QPR.
...Toxic curse. One post about Robert Griffin III last week and that's what happens to him on his very next outing. As the Redskins crash out of the playoffs 24-14 to the Seattle Seahawks.
...watching, does AVB get the blame? Spurs avoided an upset by overcoming Coventry City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup with a bit of ease.
...Jake. It's funny reading the media take on 'Arry Redknapp's declaration of his love for Jake Livermore. It's all talk about the amount of games Livermore played last season under Redknapp, while he's been frozen out and left to rot under the evil Andre Villas-Boas.
...Spurs. Will 2013 please carry on like this, a 3-1 victory over Reading. Well results wise, without those first few minutes and without Howard Webb of course.
