...alright, a.k.a. Wimmer's Alive. Maurico Pochettino took the renamed League Cup seriously by fielding the under 12 side that went out and stuffed Gillingham, five nothing.
...attendance. While Spurs, in their opening Champions League match, flattered to deceive on the pitch some were more interested in the off field numbers that was more of an embarrassment.
...were introduced to football. Spurs really got their season up and running with another four nil thumping of the Stoke thugs at their own dump.
...points. In a season when Spurs have put up some of their best numbers in Premier League era the weekend loss to Southampton put them ahead of another unwanted table.
...fighting. The bank holiday barney of Stamford Bridge saw Spurs lose their heads and a two goal lead to hand the “we won Leicester the league” trophy to the jubilant Chelski.
...you. And after Spurs surrendered two points against West Brom to go 7 points behind the league leaders there's actually still hope, with three games left. Gawd 'elp us.
...tally-ho! A cold Monday in Stoke, yup this Spurs side can do that, as they cut the gap on the league leaders to five points with four games to go.
...eventually. Boy, that escalated quickly, as Spurs went from shambles and out of it to cruising back into contention, with a six minute three goal burst to beat Man Utd for the first time in 15 years at White hart Lane.
...after all. After Spurs came from behind to get a draw at Liverpool, it was a question of points gained or points dropped, the state of Schrödinger's League unknown until the box of Leicester's game on Sunday opened.
...nice. Spurs did what they had to do in closing the gap to Leicester back up after a comfortably easy victory over Bournemouth.
...Wimmern. Beating Dortmund in the last 16 of the Europa League would have sent a statement, not turning up and getting roundly thrashed in the first leg also sent one.
...unSpursy. Maurico Pochettino was worried about the league visit of Swansea to White Hart Lane and he was right to be so, it was all set up to see the return of the Spursy.
...imaginable. Even with elements of the usual Spurs this victory away at Man City in the league was one of the most unSpursy things to have happened this season.
...the man of the match? Spurs were going through their usual routine against a non-footballing flat back nine, that is struggling, until Big Sam played the master tactician.
...three. Spurs' two two draw with Leicester in the third round of the F.A. Cup means the teams will now face each other three times in a week and a half.
