...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.
...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.
...to this. And we were right. Spurs fans didn't like it when he was doing it, diving that is, or going down theatrically, it's earned him a reputation that referees are too witless to see past.
...disgrace. In the first half of Spurs' away game at Aston Villa they were too busy amassing corners and throw ins in the second they recklessly abandoned the goal for the record number of corners for actual goals.
...at this rate. Three wins in a week, 9 points from 9, eight goals for just two against. Surely 'Arry would have done better than this. It can't carry on, we shouldn't allow it to carry on.
...a bit. Taking enough chances when they came and hanging on to a lead to see it out for the victory. Doesn't make for pleasant viewing until after the final whistle.
...place? Yes it was only the vile scum of West Ham but with the likes of Lloris, Dawson and Dempsey playing and playing well it was probably the best home game of the season so far.
...against AVB. They deplete him of a string of first teamers for the North London Derby and then conspire to rid him of Adebayor a quarter of an hour into the game. He still did better than 'Arry despite the same scoreline.
...was the killer. From the moment Spurs took the lead, against Man City, it felt like it would be a 70 minute hanging on job and this being Spurs, not a successful one.
...the fans what they can and cannot say? It seems to work, gives the crowd a lift which in turn gives the team a lift for the home game against Maribor in the Europa League.
...Show. Cruising to the quarter final of the League Cup with seven minutes remaining Spurs manage to lose to Norwich while missing a penalty.
...will someone please tell Spurs. Away to Southampton, Spurs were at it again. A one half performance leading to hanging on at the end and being grateful to come away with the victory and three points.
