...drawbacks. It's been 24 years since I've seen Aberdeen win a trophy, other lucky buggers only had to wait 19 years. It wasn't the greatest game of football I've ever seen.
...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.
...omnishambles? Another embarrassing clusterfuck against a top 4 side by players and surprise, surprise officials as they again capitulated in the weakest manner possible to lose 4-0 to Chelsea.
...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.
...the Preston Plumber. Sad news last week that one of England's true greats, not one of these modern madey-up ones, Sir Tom Finney has died aged 91.
...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.
...myth. Apparently when Daniel Levy sacked Andre Villas-Boas and replaced him with Tim Sherwood “we got our Spurs back”, because the game is about glory. To do is to dare.
...level. It was meant to be Hull City versus Tottenham Hotspur but the rubbish put on display, especially by Sherwood's side, looked more like third tier Jock rubbish.
...wins another 3 points. Tim Sherwood still unbeaten in the league as Spurs boss after giving a“ win one for the Gipper” half-time speech and a goal for “the greatest striker who ever scored a goal”, it was a Daily Mail reporters wet dream at The Lane on Saturday.
...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.
...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.
