...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.
...the last few months. Spurs absolutely hammer an atrocious Liverpool in the Premier League four nothing in their best outing for months.
...points game. Spurs finally got their league season on track with a 2-0 victory away at Wolves but a dire game shouldn't give much hope because it could signal the shape of things to come.
...we're nothing. We're nothing. So said (Sir) Bill Nicholson, it may have been something whispered in 'Arry's lughole by Levy. What else could explain winning at Anfield for only the 4th time in 99 years?
