...if they weren't around? Nobody likes Stoke, the place, the team, it's fans, but after their third four nil thrashing on the trot they might be missed by Spurs.
...so inept and craven. Spurs again wasted the chance to capitalise on the slip ups of others by again putting in a poor effort away to top six competition.
...against Boro. Spurs did their utmost to make Middlesbrough look like Sunderland in almost snatching a draw from the jaws of victory.
...I believe it was inevitable. Pep Guardiola was pulling out his hair as his team, Man City, rode their luck in getting a two all draw with the visiting Spurs.
...plan. Part way through Spurs victory commanding over West Brom, Tony Pulis looked lost, this wasn't meant to happen and how could he get more centre-backs on the pitch.
...him. Sky Sports couldn't hide their disappointment as Spurs derailed they're celebrations of Chelsea beating the single season winning streak.
...for three points. Spurs last home game of 2016 was just that an ugly, ugly victory over relegation fodder Burnley.
...back. After a couple of promising performances Spurs drop back into this season's standard form with an insipid display to lose at Man Utd.
...and give Swansea three points. In true Spurs style they picked the wrong time to play one of the worst teams in the league, Swansea, just after they had a moral boosting snatch and grab victory.
...off their back. One of the most meaningless unbeaten streaks in the Premier League comes to an end in a second half clueless, whimper at Chelsea.
...lives. It's happening again. On another day when it looked again like Spurs would fail to capitalise on other results and a draw would be good they finally won a game.
..season so far. Another disappointing draw for Spurs, saw them drop to fifth in the league when they could have been top but amazingly are just one point away from there.
...but still unbeaten. All the guaranteed things that would happen when Spurs played West Brom in the league did happen, except they got out with a point.
...beyond. One ex Barcelona based manager taught another ex Barcelona based managera lesson in pressing as Spurs beat the previously unbeaten Man Citeh in Guardiola's first real test in the Premier League.
...is no way to go through life son. How fitting that Sam Allardyce's tenure as England manager ended through his own greed, stupidity and ego that quickly surfaced even before his first game in charge.
