...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.

...said one Toonite. And he wasn't wrong. From the Spurs fans through the players to even the opposition there was a 90 minute 'Arry lovefest at the Lane as Spurs thrashed Newcastle 5-0.
...plea. The ex-Chelsea and Milan boss wants to stay in England when he comes off his gap year and the F.A.'s choice as the next England manager could point the way where.
...deadline. Somehow the excitement of transfer window deadline day didn't reached Jim White about to explode levels at Toxic Towers.
...luck. Two games on the trot and she's been ridden hard by Spurs, two games with banana skin written all over them. But Spurs beat Bolton, to go with Blackburn, what's going on?
