...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.
...from the league. That would have been the cherry on top of the cake. But Spurs beating Stoke on their “special” day, with Charlie Adam being sent off will have to do.
...that easy. Not as easy as it being out of our own hands. And not as easy as gifting it to others. Ah, the Spurs' way, as seen at White Hart Lane and Stamford Bridge over the last few days.
...titles. Four F.A. Cups. One League Cup. One UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. One UEFA Super Cup
..awards. You do bugger all for nearly 90 minutes, then when all looks lost you pop up and score yet another goal of the season candidate. That's Gareth bale for you.
...way. Only team that the new league champions haven't beaten all season. Just come off a moral boosting defeat of the previous champions. Struggle against relegation fodder Wigan to finally take one point off them this season.
...perfectly. A game meandering to a one nil loss, at best. A season petering out into disappointment. Changed in seven minutes by one manager introducing three players and awakening another. As Spurs beat Citeh 3-1.
...Everton did to us? Last season I said it was the two games against Norwich that cost Spurs. This time round was it the two games against the Toffees and the solitary point taken?
...a better time. While most managers in the league were whinging and crying about their players going away to play in World Cup qualifiers, Andres Villas-Boas probably couldn't be more grateful as Spurs get back to winning ways.
...in which they lost. Spurs' home defeat to Fulham was limp, lifeless, lacklustre. And probably even worse - predictable.
...ban it. Brendan Rodgers can go on about how his side got the “deserved 3 points” and the media can talk up their favourite team but for two stupid moments it would never have happened.
...let André Villas-Boas play. March 4th 2012 after his 40th game in charge of Cheatski the fidgety Russian showed AVB the door - well he had a minion do it. One year later after AVB's 40th game in charge at Spurs he's enjoying football.
...marches on. Pissing on the Spam's parade there'd only be one team that the late Bobby Moore would have wanted to play for last night. Gareth Bale won the whole game by himself, no one else was involved.
…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 [...]
...strikers. Jermain Defoe hobbles off and Spurs don't have a single recognised striker. Oh, woe, woe and thrice woe. Except Defoe wasn't scoring and Dempsey can be a striker and has been scoring and so can Bale.
