...how did that work out for you? On the basis of two goals against a 3rd division side and Lennon missing 'Arry decided to completely screw up Spurs' line up against Everton, with predictable results.
...all over. OK so a couple of things were missing, he didn't hit the woodwork, side netting or 'keeper. But the rest was pure Jermain.
...but this was expectation. There was a lot of expectation before Sunday morning. Expectation on both sides. Expectation of the same thing. Expectation that didn't quite go to plan.
...is the highlight. It highlights how the game went. Spurs went to Liverpool not to lose and came away with a point.
...back. It was all there last night as Spurs beat Wigan 3-1 at The Lane. From the swagger to Benny's barent.
...Howard Webb has to do his best for Citeh? As soon as Balotelli stamped on Parker's head you knew he would do something that would highlight Howard Webb's ineptness in not showing the Italian striker a straight red.
...title winners do. But apparently losing at home to Blackburn is what you have to do. Spurs beat Everton and the media go into build them up mode, a draw against Wolves and they immediately switch to 'Spurs have blown it'.
...the team picks up three points playing poorly? Well Spurs certainly got the playing poorly right against West Brom as they struggled to get the win.
...in reality. Sloppy display by Spurs see them drop two points at Swansea while others around them lost the first game of the New Year.
...when he's not playing. Especially when he isn't available as in last night's Premier League game against Norwich City which Spurs won 2-0.
...halves. Spurs come out of the blocks against Chelski all guns blazing then squander the lead letting the visitors back into it before going end to end.
...looks weak and shallow. With two of their key players missing Spurs squad didn't look that strong and deep but they still ground out a deserved three pints against Sunderland.
...to three league points. Spurs had the swagger, had the luck, had some great build up play but again didn't have that clinical cutting edge that should have seen Bolton off with a real thrashing.
...merchants. The shirts Spurs wear do seem to have an effect on the way things go. This new purple thing means shoddy, sloppy, slack performance ending in a 3-1 victory.
...easier? Aston Villa let Spurs cruise to a 2-0 victory, that moves them up to 3rd in the league, with an odd choice of players and tactics by Alex McLeish.
