...window. It wasn't who came in but rather who didn't, who left and who stayed that made this transfer window somewhat lacklustre.
...similarity. There maybe a new man in charge but a number of things haven't changed over the summer for Spurs, though in the end a victory over Wet Spam was a refreshingly new end to things.
...the rest of the deadwood with you. The end of this abortion of a season couldn't come quick enough once Levy decided to Sherwood it. The final match against Aston Villa pretty much summed up Timmy's, thankfully, short period in charge.
...career. Losing 3-1 to the smirking dim one called Sherwood must rank as the worst thing on the Fulham manager's long and distinguished CV as both player and coach.
...coming. There's no better team to be three goals down to than West Brom, as the Baggies dug Timmy out of yet another grave by throwing away a three goal lead to draw three all.
...was losing it. The media are heaping praise on English Tim because Spurs came from behind in a 3-2 victory over Southampton, obviously missing the point it would mean he was at fault for them being behind, and outplayed in the first place.
...desire to win. Timmy said that teams will fear playing Spurs and the draw with Benfica that knocked them out of the Europa League showed the team are fully behind him, on a 12 minute display.
...thank god. As Tim Sherwood blagged his way through another game as head coach of Spurs, wears 'is 'eart on 'is sleeve, his team turned in another nothing display of huff and bluff that matched.
...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.
...sacked. Rubbish like, struggling at home to beat relegation fodder Cardiff City one nil, wasn't that the reason AVB had to go, to be replaced by Mr Entertainment Tim Sherwood.
...baffling good management. Timmy's had a lucky run of fixtures since back stabbing his way into the job, this certainly didn't change with an 4-0 away thrashing of Newcastle. But Timmy changed things and for the better.
...back. Well I wasn't really gonna post much about that game, what was their really to say that the 0-5 scoreline didn't already then Daniel lLvy pulled the Alan Sugar card and AVB is gone.
...meaning. With Spurs' final Europa League group game against Anzhi Makhachkala being a dead rubber, both teams had already qualified with Spurs as group winners, it didn't look good.
...Spurs. Another win in the Europa League, through to the next round with a group game to play. Five played, five won, eleven scored and one conceded. But it was yet another one of those Europa games against Tromso.
...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.
