...a relegation battle shutting up shop. The weekend fixture against Premier League strugglers Chelsea should that Spurs will have to deal with more little teams coming to The Lane trying to grab a point.
...not much less. Spurs made their merry way east to Azerbaijan for the Europa League tie with Qarabag and came back with the much needed three points, no injuries and not too much exertion expended.
...final. There's a lot of people really happy with the way Spurs played as they lost the League Cup final but in all honesty it looks like the worst type of straw clutching.
...lately. Spurs have had two wins and two draws over the festive period and not a single post on here about any of them, till now.
...and reverse is hit. Spurs resurgence lasted just over three days and then they had to play Chelsea away and well we all know that wasn't going to end well.
...thank god. Some days back Steven Gerrard made Roy Hodgson a very sad man as he retired from England duty after a World Cup that summed up the player's international career of failure.
...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.
...good. But with that England performance to go with the 2-0 loss to Chile you might as well give up.
...North London. When Jose is trying to hide his fear it brings out every trait that makes loathing him so easy. Mourinho did his best to deflect attention away from his and his players faults after a one all draw with Spurs.
...that easy. Not as easy as it being out of our own hands. And not as easy as gifting it to others. Ah, the Spurs' way, as seen at White Hart Lane and Stamford Bridge over the last few days.
…it’s taken long enough. Seven and a half years, 202 games, four managers – with one caretaker – plus a number of better midfielders he either blocked from playing or hindered while being an automatic first team selection. I’m pretty sure after putting up with all that I’m allowed a smug “told you”. Posted after […]
...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...at this rate. Three wins in a week, 9 points from 9, eight goals for just two against. Surely 'Arry would have done better than this. It can't carry on, we shouldn't allow it to carry on.
…halves. Optimism in the face of playing the league leaders lasted as long as we though Dembele and Bale’s names would be on the team sheet. Once they were omitted for separate reasons – for Bale I’m reminded of the beginning of David Lee Roth’s “Yankee Rose” video (right) in the grocery shop where the […]
...coming!! In one of the worst kept secrets in football, Spurs finally announce André Villas-Boas as the new head coach and the media can't wait to stick the boot in.
