...wallpaper. It has to be said over two league games Leicester haven't had the greatest luck against Spurs, as they almost blew another one at the Lane.
...far. Spurs' trip to Old Trafford saw 30 minutes where progress met reality, Spurs' reality, where everyone from top to bottom got it wrong and they paid the price.
...Spurs. Since the disappointment of the previous week Spurs have bounced back with two victories but made hard work of beating Swansea and now QPR when it should have been much easier.
...final. There's a lot of people really happy with the way Spurs played as they lost the League Cup final but in all honesty it looks like the worst type of straw clutching.
...in the end. Spurs did their usual trick of sinking to the level of the opposition as they came back from being two down to draw with Wet Spam with the last kick of the game.
...chance. Spurs paid the usual price for spurning the usual amount of chances in the first leg of their round of 32 Europa League match up against Fiorentina which ended in a one all draw.
...Game. The rise and rise of Harry Kane reached new levels as his two goals saw off the Woolwich bus Arsene Wenger tried to park at White Hart Lane.
...team. Spurs travelled away to a West Brom under new management and thanks to the three amigos of Kane, Eriksen and Lloris came away with three goals, a clean sheet and three points
...coming? Spurs on an unbeaten run, just thumped the anointed champions, against a team in trouble with a new manager, who had recently just been stuffed by Spurs after handing them a defeat. Only one outcome really, as Spurs lost to Crystal Palace.
...lately. Spurs have had two wins and two draws over the festive period and not a single post on here about any of them, till now.
...forward. Burnley at home, after two wins in the week, was meant to be a banana skin for Spurs, but it turned out after a game of two halves and three goals to be one more hurdle overcome.
...makes. AVB was sacked leaving Dim Sherwood in charge, his first game in charge saw a demoralising League Cup quarter final loss, a year later Pochettino saw a 4-0 thumping of Newcastle at the same stage.
...dark. The lights went out at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium as Spurs played out their final group game in the Europa League losing 1-0 to Besiktas which ended their unbeaten group run.
...bad to worse. When after a dull nil nil home draw with Crystal Palace people are talking about the positives of a point and clean sheet things are reaching rock bottom.
...and reverse is hit. Spurs resurgence lasted just over three days and then they had to play Chelsea away and well we all know that wasn't going to end well.
