...east. With all the excitement of Fat Sam Allardyce I completely forgot a completely forgettable Champions League game as Spurs finally got off the mark in Moscow.
...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.
…over again. One kick in the dying seconds couldn’t hide the fact that the same team that struggled at the Euros, struggled exactly the same way in Sam Allardyce’s first game as England manager. I had originally thought that Adam Lallana’s last ditch goal had moved Allardyce from being the new Hodgson to him being […]
...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.
...the man of the match? Spurs were going through their usual routine against a non-footballing flat back nine, that is struggling, until Big Sam played the master tactician.
...in the bin. With Spurs' unbeaten run in the league and West Ham turning over big teams on their travels this had Spursy banana skin written all over it, but the little team were put in their place.
...in the end. Spurs did their usual trick of sinking to the level of the opposition as they came back from being two down to draw with Wet Spam with the last kick of the game.
...that rubbish. Timmy's league luck finally ran out, though I have to admit the manager and team I expected to do him weren't Chris Hughton and Norwich.
...at the Lane. I just didn't think it was going to quite happen this way, as Spurs carried on as they left off playing wise in Europe, with an awful display, losing 3-0 to West Ham.
...in charge. There'd be as much if not a better chance of England winning the 2022 World Cup than with Greg Dyke if yesterday's showing is anything to go by. Yeah! Rat fans!!!
...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.
...City. Don't know what's worse what Stoke call football or the joy they take in killing the game. Points for points sake, no enjoyment, glory in destruction, you wonder what Danny Blanchflower would have made of it all.
...statistics. Possession and passing success have become king of late but if they lead to nothing other than stat padding what is the point?
...shocker. Well as of writing this that is, so far I haven't heard that Michael Dawson is suffering any career threatening injury due to his 67 minute outing as England beat Denmark, last night.
...in Blackburn of all places. Spurs picked up a vital 3 points with an away win at Blackburn with a depleted squad thanks to an early Crouch goal and some Gomes heroics.
