...this season? In losing to an Aston Villa side “managed” by Tim Sherwood, Spurs managed to out Spurs themselves in providing the new standard for inept performances this season.
...wallpaper. It has to be said over two league games Leicester haven't had the greatest luck against Spurs, as they almost blew another one at the Lane.
...White Hart Lane. There were many things during Spurs latest Premier League game against Swansea that had that deja-vu feeling all over again.
...final. There's a lot of people really happy with the way Spurs played as they lost the League Cup final but in all honesty it looks like the worst type of straw clutching.
...in the end. Spurs did their usual trick of sinking to the level of the opposition as they came back from being two down to draw with Wet Spam with the last kick of the game.
...Spurs? Everything about Spurs' defeat to Liverpool midweek was guaranteed after the weekend victory over the Goon scum.
...miss. Didn't manage to catch the Spurs versus Burnley F.A. Cup third round replay, just the highlights and some of the talking points.
...dark. The lights went out at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium as Spurs played out their final group game in the Europa League losing 1-0 to Besiktas which ended their unbeaten group run.
...plumb. It was barely a month ago when Spurs last found a new depth to plumb, well after yet another meek loss at home, to Stoke, they've delved deeper down into the abyss.
...to Spurs. It takes some level of awfulness to be one up against Spurs with six minutes left and to walk off the pitch with no points after another loss.
...before. Spurs nil, nil draw away to Partizan Belgrade in their first game of the Europa League group stage had all the hallmarks of their European exploits of the recent past.
...Spurs. Sunderland had one whole shot on target and yet Spurs made their way home from the Stadium of Light with just one point after letting in two goals.
...window. It wasn't who came in but rather who didn't, who left and who stayed that made this transfer window somewhat lacklustre.
...resumed. After a promising start to the new season things are back to normal as Liverpool put another bunch of unanswered goals past Spurs in yet another lifeless display.
...then. 'Arry Redknapp, Glenn Hoddle, Steven Caulker and Bobby Zamora were all taught a footballing lesson by the new stars of The Lane, Pochettino, Dier, Chadli, Capoue and Lamela, as Spurs beat QPR 4-0.
