...dampish squib. Well we should be grateful for small mercies as the usual slow start to Spurs season with a first game loss was avoided with the one all draw away to Everton.
...points. In a season when Spurs have put up some of their best numbers in Premier League era the weekend loss to Southampton put them ahead of another unwanted table.
...after all. After Spurs came from behind to get a draw at Liverpool, it was a question of points gained or points dropped, the state of Schrödinger's League unknown until the box of Leicester's game on Sunday opened.
...nice. Spurs did what they had to do in closing the gap to Leicester back up after a comfortably easy victory over Bournemouth.
...die Deutschen tun. When you watch the Bundesliga three things stick out and all three were there as Borussia Dortmund beat Spurs 2-1 to go through 5-1 on aggregate to the Europa League quarter finals.
...unSpursy. Maurico Pochettino was worried about the league visit of Swansea to White Hart Lane and he was right to be so, it was all set up to see the return of the Spursy.
...strikers! Missing their talisman, and only real striker, for the first time in over a year, Spurs still managed their revenge over the team that put them out of the Europa League this time last year.
...Southampton. Both teams in Spurs' Premier League visit to Southampton probably looked at it being the best time to play the other, it looked like Southampton were right, until they were wrong.
...out someone to replace the kids. The kids were alright, the kids were winning the first home game of the season against Stoke, it's just Pochettino had nothing to replace the kids with.
...the season. Stoke, yes Stoke City, yes Stoke City under Mark Hughes, never mind a banana skin Stoke City turned out to be a bacon sarnie for Pochettino and his Spurs side.
...late. Some were apparently happy that Spurs showed more signs of life than of late in their home defeat to Man Citeh.
...wallpaper. It has to be said over two league games Leicester haven't had the greatest luck against Spurs, as they almost blew another one at the Lane.
...Spurs. Since the disappointment of the previous week Spurs have bounced back with two victories but made hard work of beating Swansea and now QPR when it should have been much easier.
...White Hart Lane. There were many things during Spurs latest Premier League game against Swansea that had that deja-vu feeling all over again.
...final. There's a lot of people really happy with the way Spurs played as they lost the League Cup final but in all honesty it looks like the worst type of straw clutching.
