...players. If they'd played like that previously BMJ wouldn't have lost his job and Spurs wouldn't be facing a team with new manager syndrome.
...if that's the response. And even though the two all draw with Man Utd. was disappointing the manner in which Spurs went about the game was rather encouraging but only if they keep it up.
...there. Man City went one up after 14 seconds and Spurs made it easy for them in the rest of the 90 minutes as they racked up another five goals.
...'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.
...wrong. While Spurs struggled to a lucky one nil victory over Hull City Andre Villas-Boas wasn't happy with the White hart Lane crowd.
...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.
..not bad after all. Away trip in the League Cup in between league and European games could have seen Spurs slack off but 4-0 victory over Aston Villa was the response.
...worse. Five nil up from the first game, five away goals, against a side that wasn't in any reality going to get back level, and a home side that was second to third string, Spurs' Europa League qualifier second leg against Dinamo Tbilisi had nil nil written all over it.
...Martin Jol. We all know you still love your old club Martin, love 'em enough to not want to see Scott Parker hindering our midfield one minute longer. Love 'em enough to have him hindering Fulham's.
...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.
…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 […]
...season. A struggle at Norwich, during which Gareth Bale charged through the hosts, scored and he stopped being a left winger. He did it to save a point here.
...United. Forget the Mayans, forget the snow surely Spurs grabbing a last minute equaliser in added time against Manchester United is more a sign of the apocalypse than anything.
...an early kick-off. As if Andre Villas-Boas being named manager of the month for December wasn't bad enough the first game after the award announcement was a 12:45 Saturday kick-off against 'Arry's QPR.
