...there. Man City went one up after 14 seconds and Spurs made it easy for them in the rest of the 90 minutes as they racked up another five goals.
...'keepers. Much will be made about how Tim Krul saved Newcastle from a thumping while Brad Friedel cost Spurs a clean sheet. They were major parts but it was much more than that.
...player. During Spurs' nil nil with Everton Hugo Lloris became the first player to outbeast Sandro that hasn't been Sandro.
...with a banjo, luckily. FC Sheriff Tiraspol provided Spurs biggest challenge so far in the Europa League and yet not being brilliant they came away with another win.
...North London. When Jose is trying to hide his fear it brings out every trait that makes loathing him so easy. Mourinho did his best to deflect attention away from his and his players faults after a one all draw with Spurs.
...was it? The commentator stated near the end that neither Spurs nor Cardiff deserved to lose. In the real world it would have been a travesty if Spurs hadn't found that winning goal.
...then what is. As I tweeted yesterday afternoon sometime shortly before the final whistle “It wouldn't be Spurs without days like this”.
...Brown. This is where Tottenham Hotspur take the role of the Harlem Globetrotters while Dinamo Tbilisi the Washington Generals. As Spurs thrash Dinamo 5-0 with some excellent goals in the Euopa League qualifier.
...wasn't it? A mixture of Spurs modern and Spurs of old as the season ends on a high and on a low but with promise.
..awards. You do bugger all for nearly 90 minutes, then when all looks lost you pop up and score yet another goal of the season candidate. That's Gareth bale for you.
...perfectly. A game meandering to a one nil loss, at best. A season petering out into disappointment. Changed in seven minutes by one manager introducing three players and awakening another. As Spurs beat Citeh 3-1.
...ban it. Brendan Rodgers can go on about how his side got the “deserved 3 points” and the media can talk up their favourite team but for two stupid moments it would never have happened.
...marches on. Pissing on the Spam's parade there'd only be one team that the late Bobby Moore would have wanted to play for last night. Gareth Bale won the whole game by himself, no one else was involved.
...to this. And we were right. Spurs fans didn't like it when he was doing it, diving that is, or going down theatrically, it's earned him a reputation that referees are too witless to see past.
...injury time. Easy answer for Spurs to hold out during the last 10 to 15 minutes of games with a lead looks like being to play teams with little attacking intention - like Swansea. Fine by me.
