...Everton did to us? Last season I said it was the two games against Norwich that cost Spurs. This time round was it the two games against the Toffees and the solitary point taken?
...win. A Tweet went out last night shortly after Spurs had lost 4-1 in the second leg of their last 16 Europa League tie away at Inter Milan, to draw 4-4 on aggregate and go through on away goals.
...minute. Spurs waited pretty much as long as they could throughout the two legs of their Europa League tie against Lyon to go through to face Inter Milan.
...in town. It's Wales 2 the French 1 all over again. Second game in a row. And three free kicks scored in less than a week. Is Bale world class? Who cares as long as he's winning games for Spurs as they beat Lyon 2-1 in the Europa League.
...strikers. Jermain Defoe hobbles off and Spurs don't have a single recognised striker. Oh, woe, woe and thrice woe. Except Defoe wasn't scoring and Dempsey can be a striker and has been scoring and so can Bale.
...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.
...injury time. Easy answer for Spurs to hold out during the last 10 to 15 minutes of games with a lead looks like being to play teams with little attacking intention - like Swansea. Fine by me.
...Show. Cruising to the quarter final of the League Cup with seven minutes remaining Spurs manage to lose to Norwich while missing a penalty.

Once they were omitted for separate reasons – for Bale I’m reminded of the beginning of David Lee Roth’s “Yankee Rose” video (right) in the grocery shop where the [...]
...against San Marino. I take it rain interrupted play or was it bad light? Should San Marino be in World Cup qualifiers? Or are they value for exposing England?
...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.
…the F.A. Poor old ‘Arry, he finally sees Spurs actually win a game and the F.A. go and piss all over his chips by announcing Roy Hodgson is their only choice for his job. More about Woy’s about bloody time later, first there’s an actual Spurs win. Well the day started with good news as [...]
...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.
...the team picks up three points playing poorly? Well Spurs certainly got the playing poorly right against West Brom as they struggled to get the win.
