...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.
...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.
...player. During Spurs' nil nil with Everton Hugo Lloris became the first player to outbeast Sandro that hasn't been Sandro.
...Jake. It's funny reading the media take on 'Arry Redknapp's declaration of his love for Jake Livermore. It's all talk about the amount of games Livermore played last season under Redknapp, while he's been frozen out and left to rot under the evil Andre Villas-Boas.
...with a win. AVB needs to do something about Spurs' 80 minute men. He also needs to get one of his 'keepers and one of his central defenders to spend some time together so they can understand each other in the future.
...how did that work out for you? On the basis of two goals against a 3rd division side and Lennon missing 'Arry decided to completely screw up Spurs' line up against Everton, with predictable results.
...all over. OK so a couple of things were missing, he didn't hit the woodwork, side netting or 'keeper. But the rest was pure Jermain.
...back. It was all there last night as Spurs beat Wigan 3-1 at The Lane. From the swagger to Benny's barent.
...bugger all. Until you win the three pints. And Spurs did that with a 2-0 victory over Everton in their game postponed from the start of the season.
...post here. But as Ian Gillan famously sang on a certain song 'But some stupid with a flare gun burned the place to the ground.'.
...again. Showing himself, the FA, FIFA and the whole of the game up, yet again and yet again getting away with it. Just like Rooney is again getting away with it.
...bench warmer? There's been a general lack of excitement about Spurs signing Steven Pienaar from Everton as many don't see where he'll fit in except as a sub or starting instead of injured players.
...and flog 'im. As soon as I saw he was in the starting XI for Spurs against Everton I knew how the game would pan out and sure enough a team that can't score were allowed to waltz through the middle and do so in 2 minutes.
...can't stand to see him play for Spurs either. Just hope she's blocked his phone number or he'll be on to her to make 'Arry Redknapp play him just like Wilson Palacios' mother did before the draw with Everton.
...halves. I'm sure I've seen this Spurs v Everton game before somewhere, but it had a different ending this time. No late equaliser, no dropped points and back up to fourth.
