...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'.
...about them booting out Captain Pugwash, the fat Spanish waiter, Rafael Beneathus Benitez, single handed creator of the worst Liverpool side in living memory doesn't have the chance to really finish them off.
...to catch. It's going to be a bit of a culture shock for some members of the Premier League millionaires club playing at Bloomfield Road next season but thanks to Ian Holloway it's an amazing comeback to the top flight for the seasiders.
...all football. They have the amazing ability to turn everything to shit, Hell they pretty much did it to Morecambe and Wise what chance has the game got. Still it's really the fault of the F.A. and the 30 pieces of silver they got.
...games like that. Going out with a whimper after such a good season, especially after cruising to a two goal lead against Burnley with a couple of excellent goals.
...Audere est Facere. Mancini promised it, Rafa guaranteed it, 'Arry delivered it. A deserve win at Man City means Spurs are guaranteed at least 4th place in the premier League, that coveted final Champions League spot.
...at a a time. I'm with 'Arry Redknapp he had to play Ledley King against Bolton on Saturday, this was the must win game and with King at the back it made it more likely the 3 points would be Spurs'
...started. It wasn't going to be a good night for a Spurs fan, in reality wanting both the Woolwich scum and ManUre to win and then 'Arry went and picked the Jenasite.
...a bunch of other posts. As Spurs put a typical cut and paste performance in against Birmingham City to drop another two points in that chase for fourth.
