...for three points. Spurs last home game of 2016 was just that an ugly, ugly victory over relegation fodder Burnley.
…again. The Jocks felt hard done by after leaving Wembley on the wrong end of the three, nil scoreline, but they should be happy as they’ve probably done England more harm than good. Oh but didn’t they get misty eyed in the build up to the England vs Scotland World Cup qualifier. The country that […]
...again. Spurs must have done something right in the North London Derby as Wenger was whinging and we know he does that to detract from his team's performance.
...lucky, or unlucky. Spurs second Champions League trip to Wembley was amazingly even worse than the first and at this rate it'll be Europa League come next year, if they're lucky or unlucky.
...losing. The reaction to the latest NFL game played in London, where the Redskins tied/drew with the Bengals was “it's like kissing your sister”, feels like Spurs have been snogging a sibling all season.
...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.
