...effort. Spurs actually managed to win a game, doing so without much undue hassle, admittedly it was just Fulham but now they're just two wins from a cup final.
...after all. After Spurs came from behind to get a draw at Liverpool, it was a question of points gained or points dropped, the state of Schrödinger's League unknown until the box of Leicester's game on Sunday opened.
...imaginable. Even with elements of the usual Spurs this victory away at Man City in the league was one of the most unSpursy things to have happened this season.
...manager? Spurs' Premier League opponents on Saturday, Liverpool, apparently had a new manager why did nobody mention this and why did we never see this mysterious new man in charge?
...played. Somehow Match of the Day managed to cut out every minute of play in which Spurs had the ball in their highlights if the final game of the season, well bar one incident.
...minutes. As Spurs again capitulated to Man Citeh it was a game full of Spursisms, missed chances, inept refereeing, needless sending off, individual errors, opposition player having a blinder it was only missing an own goal for the full house.
...mercies. After Spurs' last few outings a point away to the South London scum of ARSEnal shouldn't be sniffed at.
...bestest in the whole world. An unremittingly awful game of football from some, clogging thuggery from others, fitting last on Match of the Day, highlighting everything wrong about both Spurs and Stoke.
...level. It was meant to be Hull City versus Tottenham Hotspur but the rubbish put on display, especially by Sherwood's side, looked more like third tier Jock rubbish.
...agenda. Fracking Kills Dolphins!!! The BBC think that inshore fracking will kill off the dolphins while being happy about offshore, bird killing, windfarms.
...before that it was soft. Lip synch video of football managers and what they really say before it's edited “to sound all footbally”.
...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...through Spurs. You could visible see all the hatred the Spurs' players feel for Andre Villas-Boas during the 90 minutes, plus “insulting” time added on, at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
...coming!! In one of the worst kept secrets in football, Spurs finally announce André Villas-Boas as the new head coach and the media can't wait to stick the boot in.
...again. Showing himself, the FA, FIFA and the whole of the game up, yet again and yet again getting away with it. Just like Rooney is again getting away with it.
