...in the bin. With Spurs' unbeaten run in the league and West Ham turning over big teams on their travels this had Spursy banana skin written all over it, but the little team were put in their place.
...chances. They were there, plenty of them, all chances to put the Woolwich Wanderers away but that killer touch was missing which meant that easy gifted equaliser was only seconds away from happening.
...Spurs can't, is that Spursy of them? In their second attempt to throw away a lead against Anderlecht in the Europa League, Spurs just couldn't do it, instead getting back on track with a 2-1 reversal of the first game score.
...didn't have it's leading man. Unfortunately old Tim didn't seem to be there to see one of his former clubs, Spurs, do over another of his former clubs, Aston Villa, must have been to busy watching gooner DVDs, his beloved club.
...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?
...buy. Pochettino told us all, Levy included, Spurs needed to add more players, as if anyone has needed telling after the first four games of the new league season. He didn't even get a Rasiak.
...out someone to replace the kids. The kids were alright, the kids were winning the first home game of the season against Stoke, it's just Pochettino had nothing to replace the kids with.
...whimper. Spurs started off the new Premier League season off in a fitting style, after an exceptionally unexciting off-season this game was the perfect match.
...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.
...feel. Spurs' last home game of the season against relegation fodder / strugglers Hull City wasn't exactly the party affair.
...can't even get you back on track? We found out that Newcastle becoming the only team not to be cured by Doctor Tottenham this season are as bad as it gets.
...this season? In losing to an Aston Villa side “managed” by Tim Sherwood, Spurs managed to out Spurs themselves in providing the new standard for inept performances this season.
...this. Easter Sunday was Sky Super Sunday and the days first football outing Spurs away to Burnley couldn't have been more super if it tried.
...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.
