...ban it. Brendan Rodgers can go on about how his side got the “deserved 3 points” and the media can talk up their favourite team but for two stupid moments it would never have happened.
...let André Villas-Boas play. March 4th 2012 after his 40th game in charge of Cheatski the fidgety Russian showed AVB the door - well he had a minion do it. One year later after AVB's 40th game in charge at Spurs he's enjoying football.
...marches on. Pissing on the Spam's parade there'd only be one team that the late Bobby Moore would have wanted to play for last night. Gareth Bale won the whole game by himself, no one else was involved.
...minute. Spurs waited pretty much as long as they could throughout the two legs of their Europa League tie against Lyon to go through to face Inter Milan.
...before that it was soft. Lip synch video of football managers and what they really say before it's edited “to sound all footbally”.
...in town. It's Wales 2 the French 1 all over again. Second game in a row. And three free kicks scored in less than a week. Is Bale world class? Who cares as long as he's winning games for Spurs as they beat Lyon 2-1 in the Europa League.
…one. Just in case you might not have heard – Spurs only have one player, Gareth Bale, Newcastle United are all French and Lewis Holtby is a German international with an English dad. It’s true I did Tweet during the match that Spurs would be… Buggered without Bale. — Toxic Web (@Toxic_Web) February 9, 2013 […]
...strikers. Jermain Defoe hobbles off and Spurs don't have a single recognised striker. Oh, woe, woe and thrice woe. Except Defoe wasn't scoring and Dempsey can be a striker and has been scoring and so can Bale.
...season. A struggle at Norwich, during which Gareth Bale charged through the hosts, scored and he stopped being a left winger. He did it to save a point here.
...in the Cup. No matter who we're talking about here from Jimmy Greaves through to anyone of those linked with a move to White Hart Lane during this transfer window. It wouldn't stop Spurs losing to Leeds Utd. in the Cup.
...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...United. Forget the Mayans, forget the snow surely Spurs grabbing a last minute equaliser in added time against Manchester United is more a sign of the apocalypse than anything.
...an early kick-off. As if Andre Villas-Boas being named manager of the month for December wasn't bad enough the first game after the award announcement was a 12:45 Saturday kick-off against 'Arry's QPR.
...watching, does AVB get the blame? Spurs avoided an upset by overcoming Coventry City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup with a bit of ease.
...Spurs. Will 2013 please carry on like this, a 3-1 victory over Reading. Well results wise, without those first few minutes and without Howard Webb of course.
