...on gardening leave. It's what's now required but it can't happen because Levy and Spurs wouldn't receive anything from the F.A. for him.
...now. Overseeing a tactical masterclass of ineptness, watching his team in white and blue fall to pieces while the officials make one of the most god awful calls in the game. What better qualifications can a man have to get the England job?
...Norwich? As 'Arry serenely Keggie Keegle's the season is it the the two games against Norwich that are going to be the major factors in what should have been a cruise turning into a battle?
...statistics. Possession and passing success have become king of late but if they lead to nothing other than stat padding what is the point?
...before? OK so the formation was different but there was something oh so familiar about the way Spurs played against Swansea at the weekend.
...Wembley... Wembley... We're the famous Tottenham Hotspur and we're off to Wembley. Doesn't quite feel right when it's only the Cup semi-final but it's still Wembley after beating Bolton 3-1 in the quarters..
...Jose Mourinho. The way a lot of fans were happy about the style with which Spurs went about the nil-nil draw against Chelsea, came as some surprise given their dislike of Jose's pragmatic football style.
...or should that be Keggy Keegling it? It pretty much doesn't matter which, both the same, both have seen what could at one stage have been a 16 point lead is now a one point deficit after another insipid display.
...when he said...football was more important than life and death. Fabrice Muamba current situation after suffering a cardiac arrest showed that.
...how did that work out for you? On the basis of two goals against a 3rd division side and Lennon missing 'Arry decided to completely screw up Spurs' line up against Everton, with predictable results.
...all over. OK so a couple of things were missing, he didn't hit the woodwork, side netting or 'keeper. But the rest was pure Jermain.
...every football ground. The good old days of pre-Premier League football, where the box didn't resemble Come Dancing at corners.
...list. A ref in charge of his first ManUre game since being on the end of a verbal assault in the media by Alex Ferguson which saw the manager on the end of an five match F.A. ban, what are the chances he'd want back into Fergie's good books.
...but this was expectation. There was a lot of expectation before Sunday morning. Expectation on both sides. Expectation of the same thing. Expectation that didn't quite go to plan.
...well. FA chairman David Bernstein was at the fifth round Cup tie to watch his future employee seal the deal on the England job. And didn't 'Arry do well.
