...leaders. How's that for a positive spin on another mediocre Spurs performance to start the season as they draw away to Leicester City.
...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.
...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.
...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.
...White Hart Lane. There were many things during Spurs latest Premier League game against Swansea that had that deja-vu feeling all over again.
...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.
...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.
...plumb. It was barely a month ago when Spurs last found a new depth to plumb, well after yet another meek loss at home, to Stoke, they've delved deeper down into the abyss.
...recently? It took the visit of Pochettino's previous club to finally start to see what Pochettino is trying to achieve at his new club. As Spurs beat Southampton one nil.
...mercies. After Spurs' last few outings a point away to the South London scum of ARSEnal shouldn't be sniffed at.
..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.
...Spurs. Sunderland had one whole shot on target and yet Spurs made their way home from the Stadium of Light with just one point after letting in two goals.
...then. 'Arry Redknapp, Glenn Hoddle, Steven Caulker and Bobby Zamora were all taught a footballing lesson by the new stars of The Lane, Pochettino, Dier, Chadli, Capoue and Lamela, as Spurs beat QPR 4-0.
