...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.
...day. So yet another mega spending transfer deadline day has passed, did Santa bring your club what you wanted?
...but that's all. Spurs' third league outing of the season turned into an exercise in “taking the positives” in another lifeless, drab, disappointing affair.
...die Deutschen tun. When you watch the Bundesliga three things stick out and all three were there as Borussia Dortmund beat Spurs 2-1 to go through 5-1 on aggregate to the Europa League quarter finals.
...Andros Townsend to hit. After sixteen years, fifty league games, three whole goals, numerous loan deals, and even more shots ballooning into the crowd Andros Townsend has moved on to Newcastle for 12 million quid.
...kid. After a man of the match performance against France for England to follow up the one against Woolwich, Dele Alli will have Daniel Levy hearing cash register noises.
...buy. Pochettino told us all, Levy included, Spurs needed to add more players, as if anyone has needed telling after the first four games of the new league season. He didn't even get a Rasiak.
...out someone to replace the kids. The kids were alright, the kids were winning the first home game of the season against Stoke, it's just Pochettino had nothing to replace the kids with.
...he deserves. Emmanuel Adebayor has been hawked all over the world since he signed with Spurs, unfortunately another transfer window has passed without his removal from the club.
...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?
