...grab. Reports coming in tell of a group of Spurs footballers who crossed the border into England late last night after a daring raid in Swansea that saw them grab 3 points after coming under intense attack.
...departure of Tim Sherwood. The worst kept secret in football - this week - finally played out as Daniel Levy admitted he'd made another mistake that thankfully had a get out clause.
...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.
...and the goal difference an improvement. Second league game into AVB's reign and a second game that should have been won but didn't, some criticism of the manager's substitutions but things are close to clicking.
...Norwich? As 'Arry serenely Keggie Keegle's the season is it the the two games against Norwich that are going to be the major factors in what should have been a cruise turning into a battle?
...but this was expectation. There was a lot of expectation before Sunday morning. Expectation on both sides. Expectation of the same thing. Expectation that didn't quite go to plan.
...is the highlight. It highlights how the game went. Spurs went to Liverpool not to lose and came away with a point.
...Howard Webb has to do his best for Citeh? As soon as Balotelli stamped on Parker's head you knew he would do something that would highlight Howard Webb's ineptness in not showing the Italian striker a straight red.
...easier? Aston Villa let Spurs cruise to a 2-0 victory, that moves them up to 3rd in the league, with an odd choice of players and tactics by Alex McLeish.
...but that didn't do the rest of us any good. Even for Spurs this was extreme backs to the wall job but totally unlike Spurs this ended up with another three points. Which might have had a calming effect on 'Arry's heart.
...Chelsea for that performance. If they hadn't lost to QPR would we have seen Spurs best performance for a number of games?
...England's cause? Could the alleged racial abuse he received from John Terry help England by removing Terry and Ferdinand's brother, Rio?
...performance this time around. Unlike the wins over Wigan and the Woolwich scum a draw with Newcastle didn't hide the poor play from Spurs.
…bar the result. ‘Arry may be tactically 3rd division a lot of the time but he ain’t half got the sign over the Woolwich scum, along with the scouse bindippers. Strange situation coming into the NLD as favourites and the expectations that brings with it. Hoping that the side don’t end up playing the way […]
...games like that. Only Spurs can really annihilate another side and still be hanging on against 10 men at the end.
