...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...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.
...Howard Webb has to do his best for Citeh? As soon as Balotelli stamped on Parker's head you knew he would do something that would highlight Howard Webb's ineptness in not showing the Italian striker a straight red.
...title winners do. But apparently losing at home to Blackburn is what you have to do. Spurs beat Everton and the media go into build them up mode, a draw against Wolves and they immediately switch to 'Spurs have blown it'.
...the last few months. Spurs absolutely hammer an atrocious Liverpool in the Premier League four nothing in their best outing for months.
...Fabio game. Against a team that wasn't even mediocre Fabio's side put in a performance that provides a win but won't excite anyone bar the delusional.
On sunday nights MotD2 they answered what was up with Alan Hansen's face, a bit of an accident with a candle but did it ring true?
Spurs were almost there with a 4-0 win over an admittedly bad Derby side, Martin Jol juts has to drop one player for a better team. And what has Alan Hansen been up to??
It's taken some time but Alan Hansen finally figured out on Match OF The Day that Ashley Cole is a crap defender.
