...window. It wasn't who came in but rather who didn't, who left and who stayed that made this transfer window somewhat lacklustre.
...resumed. After a promising start to the new season things are back to normal as Liverpool put another bunch of unanswered goals past Spurs in yet another lifeless display.
...overlord. Finally after 163 days Tottenham Hotspur actually have a manager. Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero.
...departure of Tim Sherwood. The worst kept secret in football - this week - finally played out as Daniel Levy admitted he'd made another mistake that thankfully had a get out clause.
...follow. No doubt Timmy's phone will be ringing off the hook after his teams dismal capitulation to dismal opposition as for the third time this season Spurs lost to West Ham.
...bestest in the whole world. An unremittingly awful game of football from some, clogging thuggery from others, fitting last on Match of the Day, highlighting everything wrong about both Spurs and Stoke.
...career. Losing 3-1 to the smirking dim one called Sherwood must rank as the worst thing on the Fulham manager's long and distinguished CV as both player and coach.
...coming. There's no better team to be three goals down to than West Brom, as the Baggies dug Timmy out of yet another grave by throwing away a three goal lead to draw three all.
...he'll do enough of that for himself. Six and half years after Martin Jol led his Spurs side out and learnt his time was at an end, Timmy had the same experience, though the whole thing was far more enjoyable.
...Levy saw it. Does he still believe in Tim Sherwood? Can anyone really after that gutless 4-0 capitulation to Liverpool at Anfield?
...analysing that game on TV. In another dimwitted, insipid performance losing 3-1 at home to Benfica in the last 16 of the Europa League, Spurs put in a Jenasesque performance.
...omnishambles? Another embarrassing clusterfuck against a top 4 side by players and surprise, surprise officials as they again capitulated in the weakest manner possible to lose 4-0 to Chelsea.
...sacked. Rubbish like, struggling at home to beat relegation fodder Cardiff City one nil, wasn't that the reason AVB had to go, to be replaced by Mr Entertainment Tim Sherwood.
...that rubbish. Timmy's league luck finally ran out, though I have to admit the manager and team I expected to do him weren't Chris Hughton and Norwich.
..CV. Tim Sherwood thinks Spurs winning a trophy would look good on his CV, after they lost their third straight cup game under him, 1-0 to Dnipro in the Europa League, he can probably keep that piece of paper blank.
