...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.
...is that the signing or the player? What to think of Gallas wearing a Spurs shirt after being captain of the scum and and that Ruski nouveau riche mob. 'Arry says it's a no brainer for him.
...no in between. They say a week is a long time in politics, it certainly is in the life of a Spurs supporter from the misery of the cup semi-final to winning two derbies, it started out in a trough now it's at a peak.
...ice dancing. The Woolwich Wanders may have had two thirds of the possession but Spurs scored two thirds of the goals which ended their season last night at The Lane.
...but you can't take the ARSEnal out of the player. Why such the shock about a dirty cheat indulging in some dirty cheating to get through to the World Cup and getting away with it.
