...knickers. Spurs yet again failed to capitalise on points dropped by their closest rivals for the title, with a dull performance in a draw against a dull Sunderland.
...I believe it was inevitable. Pep Guardiola was pulling out his hair as his team, Man City, rode their luck in getting a two all draw with the visiting Spurs.
...for three points. Spurs last home game of 2016 was just that an ugly, ugly victory over relegation fodder Burnley.
...lives. It's happening again. On another day when it looked again like Spurs would fail to capitalise on other results and a draw would be good they finally won a game.
…again. The Jocks felt hard done by after leaving Wembley on the wrong end of the three, nil scoreline, but they should be happy as they’ve probably done England more harm than good. Oh but didn’t they get misty eyed in the build up to the England vs Scotland World Cup qualifier. The country that […]
...again. Spurs must have done something right in the North London Derby as Wenger was whinging and we know he does that to detract from his team's performance.
...beyond. One ex Barcelona based manager taught another ex Barcelona based managera lesson in pressing as Spurs beat the previously unbeaten Man Citeh in Guardiola's first real test in the Premier League.
…over again. One kick in the dying seconds couldn’t hide the fact that the same team that struggled at the Euros, struggled exactly the same way in Sam Allardyce’s first game as England manager. I had originally thought that Adam Lallana’s last ditch goal had moved Allardyce from being the new Hodgson to him being […]
...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.
...or two. The build up to England's first pre-Euro warm up was basically “we're not going overboard this time round with our optimism but we're going to win it aren't we?”, Turkey might have helped with that.
...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.
...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.
...and love. While England's almost A-team shone in Germany the B-team grasped their chance with both hands, fell over, let it slip out of their grasp and threw it into the back of their own net, as they lost at home to the Dutch.
...being Roy. Roy Hodgson is currently riding high on the coattails of players he wouldn't have picked for the squad never mind started if his favourites were available.
...at all? Did the two goal victory over Aston Villa to get back to winning ways justify Pochettino's team selection against Dortmund?
