...to be. Would have been coming back to White Hart Lane with two away goals for the second leg the last time Spurs were in Europe's top competition, this time it's a point and a good start in the league.
... League? Or are Spurs just having a dog of a start to the new Premier League season? West Brom away may be a bogey team but it should have been better than this with Modric again injured to heap on the misery.
...we're 'aving a laff. Twenty months after taking over the team bottom of the premier League 'Arry Redknapp as taken Spurs into the Champions League, thanks to a 4-0 stuffing of Young Boys.
...when we get refs acting like that. A referee not giving a goal against Spurs, when he's just feet away with a clear view, it's like we've finally got the keys to the executive washroom.
...it was all a case of deja-vu all over again. The start of a new season but it's another game where Spurs come out of the blocks all guns blazing and the opposing 'keeper has the game of his life.
...games like that. Going out with a whimper after such a good season, especially after cruising to a two goal lead against Burnley with a couple of excellent goals.
...ifs. The life and times of Tottenham Hotspur. 'Arry Redknapp seemed to try and second guess the way ManUre would play and tailor his side for that, it didn't work.
...no in between. They say a week is a long time in politics, it certainly is in the life of a Spurs supporter from the misery of the cup semi-final to winning two derbies, it started out in a trough now it's at a peak.
...ice dancing. The Woolwich Wanders may have had two thirds of the possession but Spurs scored two thirds of the goals which ended their season last night at The Lane.
...two men. Along with the millions that tuned in around the world to see the two FA Cup semi-finals this week, it wasn't to see any of the four teams but the centre of attention in both games the refs who decided the outcomes.
...nah nothing happened here, move along now. As Spurs and Portsmouth barely went through the motions during the 2-0 victory for Tottenham in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final dress rehearsal.
...post. It was a game of two halves but I couldn't have gone with that, what about asking if Fulham were Juventus in disguise as Spurs came from one down and an inept display to a glorious 3-1 stuffing in the F.A. Cup quarter-final replay.
...blog posts yesterday. I didn't have time to dissect Spurs' three one win over Blackburn at the weekend, in which the referee Howard Webb tried his best but just didn't manage to deny them all three points.
...Man Of The Match. It doesn't take too much guessing to figure out what type of game Spurs' FA Cup quarter final away to Fulham was like. And you wouldn't be wrong, it wasn't the best game you'll ever see but Spurs are still in it.
...into the next round of the Cup. In the end Spurs really didn't need those two goals that Bolton scored for them to get into the quarter finals of the FA Cup last night but they were handy.
