...win. A Tweet went out last night shortly after Spurs had lost 4-1 in the second leg of their last 16 Europa League tie away at Inter Milan, to draw 4-4 on aggregate and go through on away goals.
...various uvver fings. Sad news that former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr has died aged only 56 after suffering from multiple sclerosis for just over a decade.
...Grand Slam. Get the funny feeling that's all they were thinking about when the little matter of an Italian side could quite have easily spoiled the party.
...ban it. Brendan Rodgers can go on about how his side got the “deserved 3 points” and the media can talk up their favourite team but for two stupid moments it would never have happened.
...exit sandman. Number 42, the greatest of all time, Mariano Rivera, is bowing out at the end of the 2013 season.
...Milan. Someone needed to get a cab round to Inter's hotel last night, because they didn't turn up. There was just some useless mob trying to be Arsenal in red that were thumped 3-0 in the Europa League at The Lane.
...R.I.P. Alvin Lee. Renowned speed merchant on the guitar Alvin Lee of the blues rock band Ten Years After has died aged 68.
...it's finally some good sense from the corporation. The corporation should have been more honest about Hugh Porter's absence from the Track Cycling World Championships but would he'd have found that much harder to stomach the truth.
...let André Villas-Boas play. March 4th 2012 after his 40th game in charge of Cheatski the fidgety Russian showed AVB the door - well he had a minion do it. One year later after AVB's 40th game in charge at Spurs he's enjoying football.
...the Track Cycling World Championships. It as after the men could only pick up the silver medal in the team pursuit, well beaten by the Australians in the final, that it hit rock bottom. The all conquering Olympic squad were dead and buried.
...marches on. Pissing on the Spam's parade there'd only be one team that the late Bobby Moore would have wanted to play for last night. Gareth Bale won the whole game by himself, no one else was involved.
...England. If England go on to win the Grand Slam or just the Championship they need to strike one more medal and award it to the current French coach because on Saturday he made sure it could happen.
...three blank cheques to this address. Bob Godfrey, animator of a number of classic British kids cartoons along with some more adult oriented animated films has died aged 91.
...minute. Spurs waited pretty much as long as they could throughout the two legs of their Europa League tie against Lyon to go through to face Inter Milan.
