...plumb. It was barely a month ago when Spurs last found a new depth to plumb, well after yet another meek loss at home, to Stoke, they've delved deeper down into the abyss.
...Spursy. Another Thursday night, another Europa League fixture, another Spurs performance that ticks all the boxes, the ones you want and the ones you don't as they beat Asteras Tripolis....Spursy. Another Thursday night, another Europa League fixture, another Spurs performance that ticks all the boxes, the ones you want and the ones you don't as they beat Asteras Tripolis.
...to Spurs. It takes some level of awfulness to be one up against Spurs with six minutes left and to walk off the pitch with no points after another loss.
...visit White Hart Lane. Two teams rocked up to play Spurs this week both needing a lift in fortunes Newcastle left with a reinvigorated season Brighton left being out of the League Cup.
...day. Harry Kane in goal, bumbling an easy shot into the back of the net as Spurs finally got their Europa League going with a 5-1 victory over Asteras Tripolis.
...better. Some were happy that Spurs held Besiktas to a draw in the second Europa League group game, while others watched another poor performance with Hugo Lloris again saving a huge embarrassment.
...before. Spurs nil, nil draw away to Partizan Belgrade in their first game of the Europa League group stage had all the hallmarks of their European exploits of the recent past.
...Spurs. Sunderland had one whole shot on target and yet Spurs made their way home from the Stadium of Light with just one point after letting in two goals.
...Hullish sort of places. After seeing off AEL Limassol in the qualifying match with ease Spurs go into a Europa League group with no real glamour ties and hopefully no real banana skins.
...forgot. Used to think it couldn't get worse than “Thursday nights, Channel five”, well Thursday night and not on any channel is far, far worse. As Spurs beat Limassol in their opening Europa League play-off tie.
...similarity. There maybe a new man in charge but a number of things haven't changed over the summer for Spurs, though in the end a victory over Wet Spam was a refreshingly new end to things.
...the rest of the deadwood with you. The end of this abortion of a season couldn't come quick enough once Levy decided to Sherwood it. The final match against Aston Villa pretty much summed up Timmy's, thankfully, short period in charge.
...follow. No doubt Timmy's phone will be ringing off the hook after his teams dismal capitulation to dismal opposition as for the third time this season Spurs lost to West Ham.
...career. Losing 3-1 to the smirking dim one called Sherwood must rank as the worst thing on the Fulham manager's long and distinguished CV as both player and coach.
...coming. There's no better team to be three goals down to than West Brom, as the Baggies dug Timmy out of yet another grave by throwing away a three goal lead to draw three all.
