...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.
...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.
...Spurs? Everything about Spurs' defeat to Liverpool midweek was guaranteed after the weekend victory over the Goon scum.
...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.
...time. Spurs looked to be really Spursing up their chance of a League Cup final when Christen Eriksen did what Christen Eriksen does and put pay to Sheffield United's Wembley dreams.
...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.
...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.
...better. Some were happy that Spurs held Besiktas to a draw in the second Europa League group game, while others watched another poor performance with Hugo Lloris again saving a huge embarrassment.
..plumb. Just when you thought recent results were bad enough along comes one of the league's bottom teams, West Brom, to beat Spurs at home.

...crisis. Two come from behind victories, three points off second spot and a side that's still neither settled or gelling but chock full of exciting talent, the current ManUre manager - for how long? - would give plenty of body parts for that crisis.
...if that's the response. And even though the two all draw with Man Utd. was disappointing the manner in which Spurs went about the game was rather encouraging but only if they keep it up.
...Spurs. Another win in the Europa League, through to the next round with a group game to play. Five played, five won, eleven scored and one conceded. But it was yet another one of those Europa games against Tromso.
