...to it. Spurs take an early lead, get pegged back and then Christian Eriksen saves the day in the dying minutes as the beat Sunderland with only Defoe's lack of goal going against script.
...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.
...recently? It took the visit of Pochettino's previous club to finally start to see what Pochettino is trying to achieve at his new club. As Spurs beat Southampton one nil.
...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.
...departure of Tim Sherwood. The worst kept secret in football - this week - finally played out as Daniel Levy admitted he'd made another mistake that thankfully had a get out clause.
...Levy saw it. Does he still believe in Tim Sherwood? Can anyone really after that gutless 4-0 capitulation to Liverpool at Anfield?
...analysing that game on TV. In another dimwitted, insipid performance losing 3-1 at home to Benfica in the last 16 of the Europa League, Spurs put in a Jenasesque performance.
...omnishambles? Another embarrassing clusterfuck against a top 4 side by players and surprise, surprise officials as they again capitulated in the weakest manner possible to lose 4-0 to Chelsea.
...News At Ten. After three straight cup losses, two cup exits and the first defeat in Europe this season, Sherwood finally oversaw a Spurs victory in a cup competition as they somehow came back to knock out Juande Ramos' Dnipro.
...players. If they'd played like that previously BMJ wouldn't have lost his job and Spurs wouldn't be facing a team with new manager syndrome.
...if that's the response. And even though the two all draw with Man Utd. was disappointing the manner in which Spurs went about the game was rather encouraging but only if they keep it up.
...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.
...player. During Spurs' nil nil with Everton Hugo Lloris became the first player to outbeast Sandro that hasn't been Sandro.
...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.
..not bad after all. Away trip in the League Cup in between league and European games could have seen Spurs slack off but 4-0 victory over Aston Villa was the response.
