...nice. Spurs did what they had to do in closing the gap to Leicester back up after a comfortably easy victory over Bournemouth.
...die Deutschen tun. When you watch the Bundesliga three things stick out and all three were there as Borussia Dortmund beat Spurs 2-1 to go through 5-1 on aggregate to the Europa League quarter finals.
...box. Bill Ruppert's Effectology videos normally show us how to get non-guitar sounds from a guitar and various pedals, now EHX have come out with the MEL9 Tape Replay Machine which emulates the Mellotron.
...with fourteen. England nearly blew it again against the Taffy Boyos but the pundits got it wrong to blame the near defeat on Eddie Jones' substitutions.
...at all? Did the two goal victory over Aston Villa to get back to winning ways justify Pochettino's team selection against Dortmund?
...Wimmern. Beating Dortmund in the last 16 of the Europa League would have sent a statement, not turning up and getting roundly thrashed in the first leg also sent one.
...for 13 minutes ma! Harry Kane's wonder strike against the 10 man Woolwich Wanderers looked to have sealed the deal on top spot, for a little longer than 13 minutes but old failings surfaced again.
...with it. A return to the Spurs we all know and have suffered through that faltered just when it was all there on the plate right in front of them, yet that Spurs would have been punished far more.
...watchable. Eddie Jones' England side rumbled past Ireland to keep their unbeaten record in this years Six Nations but it's not great to watch until he corrects his errors on the hour.
...unSpursy. Maurico Pochettino was worried about the league visit of Swansea to White Hart Lane and he was right to be so, it was all set up to see the return of the Spursy.
...strikers! Missing their talisman, and only real striker, for the first time in over a year, Spurs still managed their revenge over the team that put them out of the Europa League this time last year.
..eat it too. A bit of luck and some decent officiating and Spurs could still have their cake, three of them, and their wouldn't be the discussions about prioritising competitions.
...then. It's just a week under a year ago that Spurs went out of the Europa League after losing away to Fiorentina, it was a different Spurs side that got a draw in the first leg of this tie.
...for being substituted. Eddie Jones said he wanted England to give Italy a “good hiding” in their second Six Nations game, the team he picked didn't the one he ended up with did.
...imaginable. Even with elements of the usual Spurs this victory away at Man City in the league was one of the most unSpursy things to have happened this season.
