...Spurs. Another win in the Europa League, through to the next round with a group game to play. Five played, five won, eleven scored and one conceded. But it was yet another one of those Europa games against Tromso.
...'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.
...player. During Spurs' nil nil with Everton Hugo Lloris became the first player to outbeast Sandro that hasn't been Sandro.
...burnt Villa to the ground. Another team in claret and blue set up to stifle Spurs, it wasn't looking good and I was dreading the thought of drawing Burnley in the Cup. Then up stepped Andros Townsend.
...North London. When Jose is trying to hide his fear it brings out every trait that makes loathing him so easy. Mourinho did his best to deflect attention away from his and his players faults after a one all draw with Spurs.
...was it? The commentator stated near the end that neither Spurs nor Cardiff deserved to lose. In the real world it would have been a travesty if Spurs hadn't found that winning goal.
...the hole. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the two goals against Norwich City but it was new boy Christian Eriksen playing the number 10 role who took the eye in a dominant display.
...then what is. As I tweeted yesterday afternoon sometime shortly before the final whistle “It wouldn't be Spurs without days like this”.
...again. Tottenham Hotspur's second Premier League game of the season was much like their first and one goal win from a penalty.
...Brown. This is where Tottenham Hotspur take the role of the Harlem Globetrotters while Dinamo Tbilisi the Washington Generals. As Spurs thrash Dinamo 5-0 with some excellent goals in the Euopa League qualifier.
...town. It's felt like an age. An age of speculation, comments, no comments, deals, no deals, new faces, old faces. And then Spurs managed an opening day win.
