...in the form of Steve Bruce losing. That's about as much as you can say for Spurs defeat of Aston Villa in the F.A. Cup third round game.
...this. With the news that the F.A. are at any moment going to announce Sam Allardyce as the new England manager I'm pointing the finger at Newcastle and Norwich.
...feel. Spurs' last home game of the season against relegation fodder / strugglers Hull City wasn't exactly the party affair.
...week. Another dispiriting result looked to be following another dispiriting display by Spurs until a bit of luck here and there saw them overcome Hull 2-1.
...Steve Bruce. He had one chance at redemption but he blew it, while others blow up his ego talking about what a great job he and his team did. No they didn't.
...level. It was meant to be Hull City versus Tottenham Hotspur but the rubbish put on display, especially by Sherwood's side, looked more like third tier Jock rubbish.
...league. Spurs couldn't make up their mind if they wanted a league cup run or trot out the old ”concentrate on the league“ line as the eventually got past Hull City.
...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.
...reached. You'd think the rubbish currently being served up by those wearing the footballing three lions would mean English football is at it's lowest point. But no. It can reach further depths.
...plea. The ex-Chelsea and Milan boss wants to stay in England when he comes off his gap year and the F.A.'s choice as the next England manager could point the way where.
...baby blue. The so called strength and depth to Spurs' squad was shown as the reserves all started with a weak and inexperienced midfield but an inept first half was turned around.
...then how can this man be in the frame? Steve 'McClown' McClaren isn't English, he's Dutch everyone knows it, how could the F.A. hear that interview and think he's from anywhere else but the Netherlands?
...and they deserved to win. So West Ham can now be happy for the rest of the season, when they are relegated they can look back and at least have one high spot, beating Spurs, who seem to have their eyes on something else.
