...chances. They were there, plenty of them, all chances to put the Woolwich Wanderers away but that killer touch was missing which meant that easy gifted equaliser was only seconds away from happening.
...Game. The rise and rise of Harry Kane reached new levels as his two goals saw off the Woolwich bus Arsene Wenger tried to park at White Hart Lane.
...mercies. After Spurs' last few outings a point away to the South London scum of ARSEnal shouldn't be sniffed at.
...Steve Bruce. He had one chance at redemption but he blew it, while others blow up his ego talking about what a great job he and his team did. No they didn't.
...thank god. As Tim Sherwood blagged his way through another game as head coach of Spurs, wears 'is 'eart on 'is sleeve, his team turned in another nothing display of huff and bluff that matched.
...a cup game. It wasn't long ago, it was just two cup defeats ago in fact. Back in the halcyon days when Spurs were in all four competitions they entered. Down to one now and you don't give 'em any hope in that.
...then what is. As I tweeted yesterday afternoon sometime shortly before the final whistle “It wouldn't be Spurs without days like this”.
...wasn't it? A mixture of Spurs modern and Spurs of old as the season ends on a high and on a low but with promise.
...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.
...against AVB. They deplete him of a string of first teamers for the North London Derby and then conspire to rid him of Adebayor a quarter of an hour into the game. He still did better than 'Arry despite the same scoreline.
...but this was expectation. There was a lot of expectation before Sunday morning. Expectation on both sides. Expectation of the same thing. Expectation that didn't quite go to plan.
...performance this time around. Unlike the wins over Wigan and the Woolwich scum a draw with Newcastle didn't hide the poor play from Spurs.
…bar the result. ‘Arry may be tactically 3rd division a lot of the time but he ain’t half got the sign over the Woolwich scum, along with the scouse bindippers. Strange situation coming into the NLD as favourites and the expectations that brings with it. Hoping that the side don’t end up playing the way […]
...you fucked it up? That made it just the sweeter, in their own newly HP'd library, they were cruising, we were nowhere, they were gloating and talking of how many but in the end Spurs had the last laugh.
...for any silverware. How priorities change when one side puts out a team of experienced first team regulars against a patchwork 4th XI of Spurs in the League Cup.
