...sacked. Rubbish like, struggling at home to beat relegation fodder Cardiff City one nil, wasn't that the reason AVB had to go, to be replaced by Mr Entertainment Tim Sherwood.
...that rubbish. Timmy's league luck finally ran out, though I have to admit the manager and team I expected to do him weren't Chris Hughton and Norwich.
...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.
...must envy him. Tim Sherwood's spawny travels through football management continue, in this latest episode his side are again atrocious but again pick up three points against Everton.
...history. After beating Swansea, the fifth away victory on the spin, it's official, Sky and the rest of the media along with some other deluded folk told us, plans for Tim Sherwood's statute to be unveiled outside the new stadium are in full swing.
...a cup game. It wasn't long ago, it was just two cup defeats ago in fact. Back in the halcyon days when Spurs were in all four competitions they entered. Down to one now and you don't give 'em any hope in that.
...White Hart Lane. After defeating Southampton 3-2 Tim Sherwood and Emmanuel Adebayor are apparently the greatest pairing in English football since the Saint and Greavsie.
...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.
...there. Man City went one up after 14 seconds and Spurs made it easy for them in the rest of the 90 minutes as they racked up another five goals.
...from the league. That would have been the cherry on top of the cake. But Spurs beating Stoke on their “special” day, with Charlie Adam being sent off will have to do.
...that easy. Not as easy as it being out of our own hands. And not as easy as gifting it to others. Ah, the Spurs' way, as seen at White Hart Lane and Stamford Bridge over the last few days.
..awards. You do bugger all for nearly 90 minutes, then when all looks lost you pop up and score yet another goal of the season candidate. That's Gareth bale for you.
...perfectly. A game meandering to a one nil loss, at best. A season petering out into disappointment. Changed in seven minutes by one manager introducing three players and awakening another. As Spurs beat Citeh 3-1.
...like. This Europa League campaign has been a bit hit and miss. Some glorious stuff, some lacklustre. Most of it edge of the seat, last second, so you just knew the only way it would go would be penalties.
...Everton did to us? Last season I said it was the two games against Norwich that cost Spurs. This time round was it the two games against the Toffees and the solitary point taken?
