...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.
...but that didn't do the rest of us any good. Even for Spurs this was extreme backs to the wall job but totally unlike Spurs this ended up with another three points. Which might have had a calming effect on 'Arry's heart.
...Chelsea for that performance. If they hadn't lost to QPR would we have seen Spurs best performance for a number of games?
...and possession...you've had a bad game and are damn lucky to get away from Lancashire with three more points.
...performance this time around. Unlike the wins over Wigan and the Woolwich scum a draw with Newcastle didn't hide the poor play from Spurs.
...games like that. Only Spurs can really annihilate another side and still be hanging on against 10 men at the end.
...points game. Spurs finally got their league season on track with a 2-0 victory away at Wolves but a dire game shouldn't give much hope because it could signal the shape of things to come.
... of jam. Yes it was just Hearts and Spurs should stuff the third best side in Jockland but it was a decent start to the season and the Europa Cup.
...all over it. After Citeh had lost earlier it was all in Spurs hands to grab that fourth spot but yet again the came up against a newly promoted piece of relegation fodder they couldn't beat.
...are you sure? How can it be an honest mistake when the linesman is supposed to know the laws of the game and is supposed to be 100% sure when making a call not just guessing about something he really didn't see.
...like that. As Spurs' Champions League campaign ends at the hand of Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid 5-0 on aggregate it's a sad way to finish.
...means a bit of rearrangement. Is it time for 'Arry Redknapp to change Spurs' formation to utilise their best attacking options?
...the Jermain Defoe 'one day I may score my 100th goal' t-shirt. 'Arry has tell the striker he isn't going to be wearing that undergarment again.
...don't they? Well they certainly did for Spurs for the trip Up North to play the Toon in the league on Saturday. Two players out, so one certain player in horrible kit and then Bale's back giving up.
...bench warmer? There's been a general lack of excitement about Spurs signing Steven Pienaar from Everton as many don't see where he'll fit in except as a sub or starting instead of injured players.
