...he wasn't up to the job. I do hope the F.A. remember that after watching England struggle in their nil, nil draw with Slovenia.
...cloud. At the end of Spurs one nil annihilation of Sunderland you wondered if the result was worth the injuries as Spurs players were dropping like flies.
...attendance. While Spurs, in their opening Champions League match, flattered to deceive on the pitch some were more interested in the off field numbers that was more of an embarrassment.
...were introduced to football. Spurs really got their season up and running with another four nil thumping of the Stoke thugs at their own dump.
…over again. One kick in the dying seconds couldn’t hide the fact that the same team that struggled at the Euros, struggled exactly the same way in Sam Allardyce’s first game as England manager. I had originally thought that Adam Lallana’s last ditch goal had moved Allardyce from being the new Hodgson to him being […]
...but that's all. Spurs' third league outing of the season turned into an exercise in “taking the positives” in another lifeless, drab, disappointing affair.
...and all. Spurs followed up last weeks uninspired draw with an uninspiring victory over Crystal Palace in the first home league game of the season.
...dampish squib. Well we should be grateful for small mercies as the usual slow start to Spurs season with a first game loss was avoided with the one all draw away to Everton.
...of a beating. Well if that's not a fitting end to Roy Hodgson's tenure as England manager, losing to little Iceland in one of the most inept performances for years to exit Euro 2016, I don't know what is.
...genius. Apparently we all have to be in awe of the great managerial skills of Roy Hodgson after England came from behind to beat Wales in their Euro 2016 group game.
...the irony. A.K.A. Defenders? We don't need no stinkin' defenders... Roy Hodgson makes a mess of the England squad and their tactics in the last warm up game before Euro 2016 against Portugal.
...or two. The build up to England's first pre-Euro warm up was basically “we're not going overboard this time round with our optimism but we're going to win it aren't we?”, Turkey might have helped with that.
...I've come to talk with you again. In a season that was supposed to end Spursy, Spurs managed to be more Spursy than ever before as they blew it on the final day in the most Spursy fashion imaginable.
...points. In a season when Spurs have put up some of their best numbers in Premier League era the weekend loss to Southampton put them ahead of another unwanted table.
...fighting. The bank holiday barney of Stamford Bridge saw Spurs lose their heads and a two goal lead to hand the “we won Leicester the league” trophy to the jubilant Chelski.
