...backfired. If Harry Redknapp hadn't indulge in so much Machiavellian scheming would he still be the Spurs boss or was that dramatic loss of form too much?
...track. In less than half a minute Spurs might have rescued the season last night at Bolton, for their first away win at the Reebok stadium.
...before? OK so the formation was different but there was something oh so familiar about the way Spurs played against Swansea at the weekend.
...Wembley... Wembley... We're the famous Tottenham Hotspur and we're off to Wembley. Doesn't quite feel right when it's only the Cup semi-final but it's still Wembley after beating Bolton 3-1 in the quarters..
...Jose Mourinho. The way a lot of fans were happy about the style with which Spurs went about the nil-nil draw against Chelsea, came as some surprise given their dislike of Jose's pragmatic football style.
...how did that work out for you? On the basis of two goals against a 3rd division side and Lennon missing 'Arry decided to completely screw up Spurs' line up against Everton, with predictable results.
...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.
...back. It was all there last night as Spurs beat Wigan 3-1 at The Lane. From the swagger to Benny's barent.
...this post. But after watching Spurs beat Watford in the Cup last night I just can't be arsed to think of one. Well if they couldn't be bothered why should I?
...title winners do. But apparently losing at home to Blackburn is what you have to do. Spurs beat Everton and the media go into build them up mode, a draw against Wolves and they immediately switch to 'Spurs have blown it'.
...bugger all. Until you win the three pints. And Spurs did that with a 2-0 victory over Everton in their game postponed from the start of the season.
...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.
...in reality. Sloppy display by Spurs see them drop two points at Swansea while others around them lost the first game of the New Year.
...when he's not playing. Especially when he isn't available as in last night's Premier League game against Norwich City which Spurs won 2-0.
...halves. Spurs come out of the blocks against Chelski all guns blazing then squander the lead letting the visitors back into it before going end to end.
