...now? After the humiliation of the Cup capitulation to Fulham, Spurs have turned it around with three gritty league wins and now the best of the lot a battling Champions League victory away to AC Milan.
...it? British transfer fee records flying here there and everywhere on the final day of the transfer window while Spurs get knock back after knock back and end up chasing Adam and Neville.
...but still 3 points and a clean sheet. What better team to be playing with Hogmanay's hangover than Fulham who don't win at The Lane and gave Spurs another 3 points over the festive period. Oh and Beckham can piss off.
...a miss. As the dead rubber along with 'Arry's team selection pointed to it being a frustrating night for Spurs against FC Twente but in the end a 3-3 draw secured top spot in the group and broke the odd record.
...aren't on. Why would you want to watch that borefest they called The Battle Of Britain when the only decent games of football ITV have shown have involved Spurs?
...everyone predicted it. As soon as Spurs stuffed the European champions midweek everyone knew that they would be turned over by Bolton in the next Premier League fixture on Saturday.
...a bit. It was those six words spoken by 'Arry Redknapp to Roman Pavlyuchenko, 2 years and 1 day before, that led to Spurs destroying Captain Pugwash's Inter Milan at The Lane in the Champions League.
...can't stand to see him play for Spurs either. Just hope she's blocked his phone number or he'll be on to her to make 'Arry Redknapp play him just like Wilson Palacios' mother did before the draw with Everton.
...Spurs lost the first sixth 3-0. But then won the next five fifths of their Champions League game away to Inter Milan 3-1, thanks to a great hat-trick by Gareth Bale.
...and with a flourish, about going out and beating the lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom. No Spurs weren't lucky, they went out there to play football the way it should be and entertain, they got what they deserved.
...to be. Would have been coming back to White Hart Lane with two away goals for the second leg the last time Spurs were in Europe's top competition, this time it's a point and a good start in the league.
...games like that. Champions League hangover game at home losing to Wigan, a team who hadn't scored a goal while conceding ten in their previous two league games. Spurs all over ain't it.
...champions. So that's Spurs' lot in the Champions League draw then, Italians, Germans and Dutch.
...we're 'aving a laff. Twenty months after taking over the team bottom of the premier League 'Arry Redknapp as taken Spurs into the Champions League, thanks to a 4-0 stuffing of Young Boys.
...and I'll show you a black chiropodist with a sense of humour. 'Arry Reknapp wasn't quite laughing last night as Spurs struggled to a 3-2 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League qualifier but he did say it was a 'great defeat'.
