...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.
...in the end. Spurs did their usual trick of sinking to the level of the opposition as they came back from being two down to draw with Wet Spam with the last kick of the game.
...Spurs? Everything about Spurs' defeat to Liverpool midweek was guaranteed after the weekend victory over the Goon scum.
...team. Spurs travelled away to a West Brom under new management and thanks to the three amigos of Kane, Eriksen and Lloris came away with three goals, a clean sheet and three points
...coming? Spurs on an unbeaten run, just thumped the anointed champions, against a team in trouble with a new manager, who had recently just been stuffed by Spurs after handing them a defeat. Only one outcome really, as Spurs lost to Crystal Palace.
...forward. Burnley at home, after two wins in the week, was meant to be a banana skin for Spurs, but it turned out after a game of two halves and three goals to be one more hurdle overcome.
...bad to worse. When after a dull nil nil home draw with Crystal Palace people are talking about the positives of a point and clean sheet things are reaching rock bottom.
...and reverse is hit. Spurs resurgence lasted just over three days and then they had to play Chelsea away and well we all know that wasn't going to end well.
...click. A post Europa League home game, coming from behind, Soldado scoring, pressing, securish defensively, hanging on in the dying minutes for the victory against Everton, Spurs found that gear and clicked into it.
...it could be fun. After avoiding defeat in their 18th straight Europa League group game by beating Partizan Belgrade, Spurs qualified for the knockout stages, in a bizarre game.
