...count. Looking at the scores out of ten each England player got in their Euro 2016, dead rubber, qualifier against Estonia being rubbish counts for nothing if you score.
...the party. Even though Spurs outplayed Swansea it took two pieces of free-kick magic from Christian Eriksen to rescue a point from their visit to Wales.
...coco. While the progress of Erik Lamela continues standard Spurs failings appear as they snatch a draw from the jaws of victory against Monaco in the Europa League.
...Show. Spurs new Europa League group campaign got off to an unfortunate start but then one player may have answered some questions, another just enhanced a growing reputation, while another was himself.
..penalties. In his attempt to surpass Bobby Charlton as record goal scorer for England, Wayne Rooney had to be handed the easiest way to do so with a couple of penalties, that sum him up these days.
...buy. Pochettino told us all, Levy included, Spurs needed to add more players, as if anyone has needed telling after the first four games of the new league season. He didn't even get a Rasiak.
...leaders. How's that for a positive spin on another mediocre Spurs performance to start the season as they draw away to Leicester City.
...out someone to replace the kids. The kids were alright, the kids were winning the first home game of the season against Stoke, it's just Pochettino had nothing to replace the kids with.
...whimper. Spurs started off the new Premier League season off in a fitting style, after an exceptionally unexciting off-season this game was the perfect match.
...the results. It is after all a result based business and that's what Roy's England managed against Slovenia to go unbeaten in qualification in the season after that miserable World Cup.
...it was very fitting. A lot of people thought the Champions League final was Townsend's farewell so were surprised when he turned up for England's trip to Ireland.
...adieu, adieu, to you. Sepp Blatter has left the building.
...played. Somehow Match of the Day managed to cut out every minute of play in which Spurs had the ball in their highlights if the final game of the season, well bar one incident.
...the season. Stoke, yes Stoke City, yes Stoke City under Mark Hughes, never mind a banana skin Stoke City turned out to be a bacon sarnie for Pochettino and his Spurs side.
...late. Some were apparently happy that Spurs showed more signs of life than of late in their home defeat to Man Citeh.
