...window. It wasn't who came in but rather who didn't, who left and who stayed that made this transfer window somewhat lacklustre.
...overlord. Finally after 163 days Tottenham Hotspur actually have a manager. Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero.
...departure of Tim Sherwood. The worst kept secret in football - this week - finally played out as Daniel Levy admitted he'd made another mistake that thankfully had a get out clause.
...bestest in the whole world. An unremittingly awful game of football from some, clogging thuggery from others, fitting last on Match of the Day, highlighting everything wrong about both Spurs and Stoke.
...he'll do enough of that for himself. Six and half years after Martin Jol led his Spurs side out and learnt his time was at an end, Timmy had the same experience, though the whole thing was far more enjoyable.
...Levy saw it. Does he still believe in Tim Sherwood? Can anyone really after that gutless 4-0 capitulation to Liverpool at Anfield?
..CV. Tim Sherwood thinks Spurs winning a trophy would look good on his CV, after they lost their third straight cup game under him, 1-0 to Dnipro in the Europa League, he can probably keep that piece of paper blank.
...baffling good management. Timmy's had a lucky run of fixtures since back stabbing his way into the job, this certainly didn't change with an 4-0 away thrashing of Newcastle. But Timmy changed things and for the better.
... and I know how it’ s supposed to be" Yes Emmanuel history tells us those big clubs very quickly tire of you and you're asked to leave.
...myth. Apparently when Daniel Levy sacked Andre Villas-Boas and replaced him with Tim Sherwood “we got our Spurs back”, because the game is about glory. To do is to dare.
...gawd 'elp us. So it looks like Daniel Levy's master plan to sack the manager without a replacement is working a treat. As Tim Sherwood oversees a 2-1 loss to West Ham in the league cup.
...back. Well I wasn't really gonna post much about that game, what was their really to say that the 0-5 scoreline didn't already then Daniel lLvy pulled the Alan Sugar card and AVB is gone.
…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 […]
...was putting up a stink. From the man himself to his beloved extra officials to the visiting fans a stink was put out at White Hart Lane as Spurs were denied an opening game victory in the Europa League.
...is required. Spurs drew 1-1 with Norwich in their worst game of the fledgling season so far but it's the beginning of something new that'll take time.
