...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.
...similarity. There maybe a new man in charge but a number of things haven't changed over the summer for Spurs, though in the end a victory over Wet Spam was a refreshingly new end to things.
...the rest of the deadwood with you. The end of this abortion of a season couldn't come quick enough once Levy decided to Sherwood it. The final match against Aston Villa pretty much summed up Timmy's, thankfully, short period in charge.
...follow. No doubt Timmy's phone will be ringing off the hook after his teams dismal capitulation to dismal opposition as for the third time this season Spurs lost to West Ham.
