...week. Another dispiriting result looked to be following another dispiriting display by Spurs until a bit of luck here and there saw them overcome Hull 2-1.
...Martin Jol. We all know you still love your old club Martin, love 'em enough to not want to see Scott Parker hindering our midfield one minute longer. Love 'em enough to have him hindering Fulham's.
...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.
...Jake. It's funny reading the media take on 'Arry Redknapp's declaration of his love for Jake Livermore. It's all talk about the amount of games Livermore played last season under Redknapp, while he's been frozen out and left to rot under the evil Andre Villas-Boas.
...and the goal difference an improvement. Second league game into AVB's reign and a second game that should have been won but didn't, some criticism of the manager's substitutions but things are close to clicking.
...it's a disaster. How could he lose his first competitive game in charge away to a team that were fighting for a top 4 position last season and kept all their major players from that campaign.
...Münchner. As Spurs sweat on the top line, hoping Bayern do Chelski in the Champions League final, it wouldn't surprise to find out that means
I'm a doughnut.
...Norwich? As 'Arry serenely Keggie Keegle's the season is it the the two games against Norwich that are going to be the major factors in what should have been a cruise turning into a battle?
...Wembley... Wembley... We're the famous Tottenham Hotspur and we're off to Wembley. Doesn't quite feel right when it's only the Cup semi-final but it's still Wembley after beating Bolton 3-1 in the quarters..
...list. A ref in charge of his first ManUre game since being on the end of a verbal assault in the media by Alex Ferguson which saw the manager on the end of an five match F.A. ban, what are the chances he'd want back into Fergie's good books.
...is the highlight. It highlights how the game went. Spurs went to Liverpool not to lose and came away with a point.
...bugger all. Until you win the three pints. And Spurs did that with a 2-0 victory over Everton in their game postponed from the start of the season.
...nowhere. So after beating Shamrock Rovers in the final game of the group phase 'Arry Redknapp's wish for Spurs not to be in the Europa League is finally here.
...meh. Spurs' youngsters weren't great during their Europa League game away to Rubin Kazan but it was the established first teamers that sucked.
...met with indifference. With the first leg score pretty much setting the scene for a nothing game for the return leg at The Lane, it didn't disappoint.
