...way. Only team that the new league champions haven't beaten all season. Just come off a moral boosting defeat of the previous champions. Struggle against relegation fodder Wigan to finally take one point off them this season.

...a better time. While most managers in the league were whinging and crying about their players going away to play in World Cup qualifiers, Andres Villas-Boas probably couldn't be more grateful as Spurs get back to winning ways.
...United. Forget the Mayans, forget the snow surely Spurs grabbing a last minute equaliser in added time against Manchester United is more a sign of the apocalypse than anything.
...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.

...well. This Europa League group stage has been a bit touch and go over the six games for Spurs, right through to 15 minutes from the end of the final game at home to Panathinaikos last night.
...the fans what they can and cannot say? It seems to work, gives the crowd a lift which in turn gives the team a lift for the home game against Maribor in the Europa League.
