...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.
...early. More to the point it should put us England fans out of our misery and we can get on and enjoy the competition without the bloated failures clogging up the rest of the World Cup.
...if that's the response. And even though the two all draw with Man Utd. was disappointing the manner in which Spurs went about the game was rather encouraging but only if they keep it up.
...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.
...there. Man City went one up after 14 seconds and Spurs made it easy for them in the rest of the 90 minutes as they racked up another five goals.
...now. And that's why a second or third string German side barely tried and beat an England team that didn't have a single shot on target.
...good. But with that England performance to go with the 2-0 loss to Chile you might as well give up.
