...day. So yet another mega spending transfer deadline day has passed, did Santa bring your club what you wanted?
...this. With the news that the F.A. are at any moment going to announce Sam Allardyce as the new England manager I'm pointing the finger at Newcastle and Norwich.
...tournament. Euro 2016 ended as it started and then meandered for a month as the only team to beat Iceland lost the final to the team that qualified out of the group stage below Iceland. It was rubbish.
...I've come to talk with you again. In a season that was supposed to end Spursy, Spurs managed to be more Spursy than ever before as they blew it on the final day in the most Spursy fashion imaginable.
...points. In a season when Spurs have put up some of their best numbers in Premier League era the weekend loss to Southampton put them ahead of another unwanted table.
...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.
...Andros Townsend to hit. After sixteen years, fifty league games, three whole goals, numerous loan deals, and even more shots ballooning into the crowd Andros Townsend has moved on to Newcastle for 12 million quid.
...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.
...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.
...visit White Hart Lane. Two teams rocked up to play Spurs this week both needing a lift in fortunes Newcastle left with a reinvigorated season Brighton left being out of the League Cup.
...baffling good management. Timmy's had a lucky run of fixtures since back stabbing his way into the job, this certainly didn't change with an 4-0 away thrashing of Newcastle. But Timmy changed things and for the better.
...'keepers. Much will be made about how Tim Krul saved Newcastle from a thumping while Brad Friedel cost Spurs a clean sheet. They were major parts but it was much more than that.
...wasn't it? A mixture of Spurs modern and Spurs of old as the season ends on a high and on a low but with promise.
…one. Just in case you might not have heard – Spurs only have one player, Gareth Bale, Newcastle United are all French and Lewis Holtby is a German international with an English dad. It’s true I did Tweet during the match that Spurs would be… Buggered without Bale. — Toxic Web (@Toxic_Web) February 9, 2013 […]
...it's a disaster. How could he lose his first competitive game in charge away to a team that were fighting for a top 4 position last season and kept all their major players from that campaign.
