...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.
...overlord. Finally after 163 days Tottenham Hotspur actually have a manager. Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero.
...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.
...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.
...coming. There's no better team to be three goals down to than West Brom, as the Baggies dug Timmy out of yet another grave by throwing away a three goal lead to draw three all.
...thank god. As Tim Sherwood blagged his way through another game as head coach of Spurs, wears 'is 'eart on 'is sleeve, his team turned in another nothing display of huff and bluff that matched.
...analysing that game on TV. In another dimwitted, insipid performance losing 3-1 at home to Benfica in the last 16 of the Europa League, Spurs put in a Jenasesque performance.
...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.
