...the results. It is after all a result based business and that's what Roy's England managed against Slovenia to go unbeaten in qualification in the season after that miserable World Cup.
...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.
...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.
...chance. Spurs paid the usual price for spurning the usual amount of chances in the first leg of their round of 32 Europa League match up against Fiorentina which ended in a one all draw.
...lasted. Spurs F.A. Cup run lasted a whole two rounds as they crashed out to Leicester City in the fourth round.
...Wembley. That's about all you can say about Spurs' one nil victory over Sheffield United in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final.
...to it. Spurs take an early lead, get pegged back and then Christian Eriksen saves the day in the dying minutes as the beat Sunderland with only Defoe's lack of goal going against script.
...miss. Didn't manage to catch the Spurs versus Burnley F.A. Cup third round replay, just the highlights and some of the talking points.
...makes. AVB was sacked leaving Dim Sherwood in charge, his first game in charge saw a demoralising League Cup quarter final loss, a year later Pochettino saw a 4-0 thumping of Newcastle at the same stage.
...dark. The lights went out at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium as Spurs played out their final group game in the Europa League losing 1-0 to Besiktas which ended their unbeaten group run.
...and reverse is hit. Spurs resurgence lasted just over three days and then they had to play Chelsea away and well we all know that wasn't going to end well.
...plumb. It was barely a month ago when Spurs last found a new depth to plumb, well after yet another meek loss at home, to Stoke, they've delved deeper down into the abyss.
