...alright, a.k.a. Wimmer's Alive. Maurico Pochettino took the renamed League Cup seriously by fielding the under 12 side that went out and stuffed Gillingham, five nothing.
...cloud. At the end of Spurs one nil annihilation of Sunderland you wondered if the result was worth the injuries as Spurs players were dropping like flies.
...attendance. While Spurs, in their opening Champions League match, flattered to deceive on the pitch some were more interested in the off field numbers that was more of an embarrassment.
