...'keepers. Much will be made about how Tim Krul saved Newcastle from a thumping while Brad Friedel cost Spurs a clean sheet. They were major parts but it was much more than that.
...kick. As Spurs beat Sheriff to confirm qualification from the Europa League group phase one man deserve all the headlines and plaudits but it's another who did nothing bar one kick that got 'em.
...league. Spurs couldn't make up their mind if they wanted a league cup run or trot out the old ”concentrate on the league“ line as the eventually got past Hull City.
...wrong. While Spurs struggled to a lucky one nil victory over Hull City Andre Villas-Boas wasn't happy with the White hart Lane crowd.
...with a banjo, luckily. FC Sheriff Tiraspol provided Spurs biggest challenge so far in the Europa League and yet not being brilliant they came away with another win.
...at the Lane. I just didn't think it was going to quite happen this way, as Spurs carried on as they left off playing wise in Europe, with an awful display, losing 3-0 to West Ham.
...Europa League tour. Spurs at it again, a sort of lacklustre dropping down to the oppositions level as they put three past Tromso in the opening Europa League group game.
...the hole. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the two goals against Norwich City but it was new boy Christian Eriksen playing the number 10 role who took the eye in a dominant display.
...shocker. Well as of writing this that is, so far I haven't heard that Michael Dawson is suffering any career threatening injury due to his 67 minute outing as England beat Denmark, last night.
