Another Thursday night, another Europa League fixture, another Spurs performance that ticks all the boxes, the ones you want and the ones you don't as they beat Asteras Tripolis.
...day. Harry Kane in goal, bumbling an easy shot into the back of the net as Spurs finally got their Europa League going with a 5-1 victory over Asteras Tripolis.
...better. Some were happy that Spurs held Besiktas to a draw in the second Europa League group game, while others watched another poor performance with Hugo Lloris again saving a huge embarrassment.
..plumb. Just when you thought recent results were bad enough along comes one of the league's bottom teams, West Brom, to beat Spurs at home.
...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.
...window. It wasn't who came in but rather who didn't, who left and who stayed that made this transfer window somewhat lacklustre.
...Hullish sort of places. After seeing off AEL Limassol in the qualifying match with ease Spurs go into a Europa League group with no real glamour ties and hopefully no real banana skins.
...forgot. Used to think it couldn't get worse than “Thursday nights, Channel five”, well Thursday night and not on any channel is far, far worse. As Spurs beat Limassol in their opening Europa League play-off tie.
...desire to win. Timmy said that teams will fear playing Spurs and the draw with Benfica that knocked them out of the Europa League showed the team are fully behind him, on a 12 minute display.
...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.
...News At Ten. After three straight cup losses, two cup exits and the first defeat in Europe this season, Sherwood finally oversaw a Spurs victory in a cup competition as they somehow came back to knock out Juande Ramos' Dnipro.
..CV. Tim Sherwood thinks Spurs winning a trophy would look good on his CV, after they lost their third straight cup game under him, 1-0 to Dnipro in the Europa League, he can probably keep that piece of paper blank.
...back. Well I wasn't really gonna post much about that game, what was their really to say that the 0-5 scoreline didn't already then Daniel lLvy pulled the Alan Sugar card and AVB is gone.
...meaning. With Spurs' final Europa League group game against Anzhi Makhachkala being a dead rubber, both teams had already qualified with Spurs as group winners, it didn't look good.
...Spurs. Another win in the Europa League, through to the next round with a group game to play. Five played, five won, eleven scored and one conceded. But it was yet another one of those Europa games against Tromso.
