...if that's the response. And even though the two all draw with Man Utd. was disappointing the manner in which Spurs went about the game was rather encouraging but only if they keep it up.
...there. Man City went one up after 14 seconds and Spurs made it easy for them in the rest of the 90 minutes as they racked up another five goals.
...wrong. While Spurs struggled to a lucky one nil victory over Hull City Andre Villas-Boas wasn't happy with the White hart Lane crowd.
...with a banjo, luckily. FC Sheriff Tiraspol provided Spurs biggest challenge so far in the Europa League and yet not being brilliant they came away with another win.
...town. It's felt like an age. An age of speculation, comments, no comments, deals, no deals, new faces, old faces. And then Spurs managed an opening day win.
...couldn't. But the aftermath could be the killer. Spurs keep putting in these insipid displays in the Europa League. So far they've dug themselves out of trouble with last gasp efforts. Going to have to do it again after drawing 2-2 at home to Basel.
...a better time. While most managers in the league were whinging and crying about their players going away to play in World Cup qualifiers, Andres Villas-Boas probably couldn't be more grateful as Spurs get back to winning ways.
...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.
...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.
...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.
...in town. It's Wales 2 the French 1 all over again. Second game in a row. And three free kicks scored in less than a week. Is Bale world class? Who cares as long as he's winning games for Spurs as they beat Lyon 2-1 in the Europa League.
...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.
...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.
...to this. And we were right. Spurs fans didn't like it when he was doing it, diving that is, or going down theatrically, it's earned him a reputation that referees are too witless to see past.
...a bit. Taking enough chances when they came and hanging on to a lead to see it out for the victory. Doesn't make for pleasant viewing until after the final whistle.
