...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.

...Jose Mourinho. The way a lot of fans were happy about the style with which Spurs went about the nil-nil draw against Chelsea, came as some surprise given their dislike of Jose's pragmatic football style.
...halves. Spurs come out of the blocks against Chelski all guns blazing then squander the lead letting the visitors back into it before going end to end.
...Chelsea for that performance. If they hadn't lost to QPR would we have seen Spurs best performance for a number of games?
...England's cause? Could the alleged racial abuse he received from John Terry help England by removing Terry and Ferdinand's brother, Rio?
...deadline. Somehow the excitement of transfer window deadline day didn't reached Jim White about to explode levels at Toxic Towers.
...are you sure? How can it be an honest mistake when the linesman is supposed to know the laws of the game and is supposed to be 100% sure when making a call not just guessing about something he really didn't see.
...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.
