..."It's the way I play". This has been some top trolling by Graves, Strauss and the rest at the ECB, which all should be glad about, never mind the gnashing of the teeth of those that don't have to put up with Kevin Pietersen.
...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.
...can't even get you back on track? We found out that Newcastle becoming the only team not to be cured by Doctor Tottenham this season are as bad as it gets.
...this season? In losing to an Aston Villa side “managed” by Tim Sherwood, Spurs managed to out Spurs themselves in providing the new standard for inept performances this season.
...marvellous. Former Australian cricket captain and superstar cricket commentator Richie Benaud has died aged 84.
...this. Easter Sunday was Sky Super Sunday and the days first football outing Spurs away to Burnley couldn't have been more super if it tried.
...flashbacks. Roy Hodgson went wild and crazy with his experimental team selection for England's friendly against Italy and somehow came up with a side duller than usual.
...scripts. After Harry Kane scored his first senior goal for England 79 seconds into his début, after three touches, you wonder who writing his scripts, but you know it ain't Roy.
...loser. Rugby Football Union chief executive Ian Ritchie is right when he said a fourth consecutive second-placed finish for England in the Six Nations is "not acceptable".
...wallpaper. It has to be said over two league games Leicester haven't had the greatest luck against Spurs, as they almost blew another one at the Lane.
...far. Spurs' trip to Old Trafford saw 30 minutes where progress met reality, Spurs' reality, where everyone from top to bottom got it wrong and they paid the price.
...Spurs. Since the disappointment of the previous week Spurs have bounced back with two victories but made hard work of beating Swansea and now QPR when it should have been much easier.
...White Hart Lane. There were many things during Spurs latest Premier League game against Swansea that had that deja-vu feeling all over again.
...a true giant. Dave Mackay an integral part of Spurs 1960s side that brought trophies to the club, as he was at Hearts and Derby, has died aged 80.
