...points. In a season when Spurs have put up some of their best numbers in Premier League era the weekend loss to Southampton put them ahead of another unwanted table.
...Southampton. Both teams in Spurs' Premier League visit to Southampton probably looked at it being the best time to play the other, it looked like Southampton were right, until they were wrong.
...recently? It took the visit of Pochettino's previous club to finally start to see what Pochettino is trying to achieve at his new club. As Spurs beat Southampton one nil.
..plumb. Just when you thought recent results were bad enough along comes one of the league's bottom teams, West Brom, to beat Spurs at home.
...window. It wasn't who came in but rather who didn't, who left and who stayed that made this transfer window somewhat lacklustre.
...term. The deep rooted problems with the England national football team can't be fixed overnight but there a number of small things that can be done straight away to make things somewhat better in the near future.
...overlord. Finally after 163 days Tottenham Hotspur actually have a manager. Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero.
...down. The media haven't half got their knickers in a knot about Roy Hodgson picking some youngsters in his World Cup squad, when they should be focusing on the old failures instead.
...was losing it. The media are heaping praise on English Tim because Spurs came from behind in a 3-2 victory over Southampton, obviously missing the point it would mean he was at fault for them being behind, and outplayed in the first place.
...World Cup. Italy, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Brazil, Spain can all forget it Roy “headaches” Hodgson has got this one. Beating Denmark was just the prelude to greater glory in Brazil.
...White Hart Lane. After defeating Southampton 3-2 Tim Sherwood and Emmanuel Adebayor are apparently the greatest pairing in English football since the Saint and Greavsie.
...good. But with that England performance to go with the 2-0 loss to Chile you might as well give up.
..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.
