...before? OK so the formation was different but there was something oh so familiar about the way Spurs played against Swansea at the weekend.
...Wembley... Wembley... We're the famous Tottenham Hotspur and we're off to Wembley. Doesn't quite feel right when it's only the Cup semi-final but it's still Wembley after beating Bolton 3-1 in the quarters..
...Jose Mourinho. The way a lot of fans were happy about the style with which Spurs went about the nil-nil draw against Chelsea, came as some surprise given their dislike of Jose's pragmatic football style.
...or should that be Keggy Keegling it? It pretty much doesn't matter which, both the same, both have seen what could at one stage have been a 16 point lead is now a one point deficit after another insipid display.
...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.
