..penalties. In his attempt to surpass Bobby Charlton as record goal scorer for England, Wayne Rooney had to be handed the easiest way to do so with a couple of penalties, that sum him up these days.
...leaders. How's that for a positive spin on another mediocre Spurs performance to start the season as they draw away to Leicester City.
...it was very fitting. A lot of people thought the Champions League final was Townsend's farewell so were surprised when he turned up for England's trip to Ireland.
...adieu, adieu, to you. Sepp Blatter has left the building.
...this season? In losing to an Aston Villa side “managed” by Tim Sherwood, Spurs managed to out Spurs themselves in providing the new standard for inept performances this season.
...this. Easter Sunday was Sky Super Sunday and the days first football outing Spurs away to Burnley couldn't have been more super if it tried.
...flashbacks. Roy Hodgson went wild and crazy with his experimental team selection for England's friendly against Italy and somehow came up with a side duller than usual.
...scripts. After Harry Kane scored his first senior goal for England 79 seconds into his début, after three touches, you wonder who writing his scripts, but you know it ain't Roy.
...wallpaper. It has to be said over two league games Leicester haven't had the greatest luck against Spurs, as they almost blew another one at the Lane.
...a true giant. Dave Mackay an integral part of Spurs 1960s side that brought trophies to the club, as he was at Hearts and Derby, has died aged 80.
...a whimper. Spurs played out the second leg of their Round of 32 Europa League tie with Fiorentina much in the same way the first leg had gone but with a scoreline that saw the Italians progress.
...chance. Spurs paid the usual price for spurning the usual amount of chances in the first leg of their round of 32 Europa League match up against Fiorentina which ended in a one all draw.
...lasted. Spurs F.A. Cup run lasted a whole two rounds as they crashed out to Leicester City in the fourth round.
...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.
...lately. Spurs have had two wins and two draws over the festive period and not a single post on here about any of them, till now.
