...at all? Did the two goal victory over Aston Villa to get back to winning ways justify Pochettino's team selection against Dortmund?
...Wimmern. Beating Dortmund in the last 16 of the Europa League would have sent a statement, not turning up and getting roundly thrashed in the first leg also sent one.
...for 13 minutes ma! Harry Kane's wonder strike against the 10 man Woolwich Wanderers looked to have sealed the deal on top spot, for a little longer than 13 minutes but old failings surfaced again.
...with it. A return to the Spurs we all know and have suffered through that faltered just when it was all there on the plate right in front of them, yet that Spurs would have been punished far more.
...unSpursy. Maurico Pochettino was worried about the league visit of Swansea to White Hart Lane and he was right to be so, it was all set up to see the return of the Spursy.
...strikers! Missing their talisman, and only real striker, for the first time in over a year, Spurs still managed their revenge over the team that put them out of the Europa League this time last year.
..eat it too. A bit of luck and some decent officiating and Spurs could still have their cake, three of them, and their wouldn't be the discussions about prioritising competitions.
...then. It's just a week under a year ago that Spurs went out of the Europa League after losing away to Fiorentina, it was a different Spurs side that got a draw in the first leg of this tie.
...imaginable. Even with elements of the usual Spurs this victory away at Man City in the league was one of the most unSpursy things to have happened this season.
...none of you. The “animals” of Tottenham Hotspur ran over the visiting Watford to record another Premier League victory to move up to second in the league.
...Norwich. Poor old Delia was looking tired and emotional as Spurs rocked over Norwich, three nil, to continue their unbeaten away record in the league.
...run. Colchester no doubt got a decent pay day from the TV company as the cameras followed Spurs to the lowly Third Division side in the fourth round of the F.A. Cup.
...goal? Spurs seemingly standard routine struggle against a little team was lit up by Dele Alli's outstanding goal but ultimately was changed by a Pochettino substitution that wasn't a head scratcher.
...deserved. Spurs played Leicester for the third time in a week and a half in their third round F.A. Cup replay and they finally got the win their play deserved over the previous games.
...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.
