...on the future. We'll no longer see the disconsolate duck jumping out of the way of blocking shots for England.
...from the league. That would have been the cherry on top of the cake. But Spurs beating Stoke on their “special” day, with Charlie Adam being sent off will have to do.
...that easy. Not as easy as it being out of our own hands. And not as easy as gifting it to others. Ah, the Spurs' way, as seen at White Hart Lane and Stamford Bridge over the last few days.
...way. Only team that the new league champions haven't beaten all season. Just come off a moral boosting defeat of the previous champions. Struggle against relegation fodder Wigan to finally take one point off them this season.
...perfectly. A game meandering to a one nil loss, at best. A season petering out into disappointment. Changed in seven minutes by one manager introducing three players and awakening another. As Spurs beat Citeh 3-1.
...like. This Europa League campaign has been a bit hit and miss. Some glorious stuff, some lacklustre. Most of it edge of the seat, last second, so you just knew the only way it would go would be penalties.
...Everton did to us? Last season I said it was the two games against Norwich that cost Spurs. This time round was it the two games against the Toffees and the solitary point taken?
...in which they lost. Spurs' home defeat to Fulham was limp, lifeless, lacklustre. And probably even worse - predictable.
...win. A Tweet went out last night shortly after Spurs had lost 4-1 in the second leg of their last 16 Europa League tie away at Inter Milan, to draw 4-4 on aggregate and go through on away goals.
...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.
