...way. Only team that the new league champions haven't beaten all season. Just come off a moral boosting defeat of the previous champions. Struggle against relegation fodder Wigan to finally take one point off them this season.
...perfectly. A game meandering to a one nil loss, at best. A season petering out into disappointment. Changed in seven minutes by one manager introducing three players and awakening another. As Spurs beat Citeh 3-1.
...Everton did to us? Last season I said it was the two games against Norwich that cost Spurs. This time round was it the two games against the Toffees and the solitary point taken?
...in the Cup. No matter who we're talking about here from Jimmy Greaves through to anyone of those linked with a move to White Hart Lane during this transfer window. It wouldn't stop Spurs losing to Leeds Utd. in the Cup.
...against AVB. They deplete him of a string of first teamers for the North London Derby and then conspire to rid him of Adebayor a quarter of an hour into the game. He still did better than 'Arry despite the same scoreline.
...was the killer. From the moment Spurs took the lead, against Man City, it felt like it would be a 70 minute hanging on job and this being Spurs, not a successful one.
...the fans what they can and cannot say? It seems to work, gives the crowd a lift which in turn gives the team a lift for the home game against Maribor in the Europa League.
…and those at the Lane are helping them out. There’s plenty to blame for Spurs’ latest poor performance at home and yes you can say the manager played his part but those on and off the pitch contributed more… or should that be less. Those in all lilywhite – now there’s a main problem, those [...]
...will someone please tell Spurs. Away to Southampton, Spurs were at it again. A one half performance leading to hanging on at the end and being grateful to come away with the victory and three points.
…halves. Optimism in the face of playing the league leaders lasted as long as we though Dembele and Bale’s names would be on the team sheet. Once they were omitted for separate reasons – for Bale I’m reminded of the beginning of David Lee Roth’s “Yankee Rose” video (right) in the grocery shop where the [...]
...team. Constantly they just morph into the team they're playing. Done it for years and they were back again against Panathinaikos in their second group game of the Europa League, getting only a one all draw.
...is required. Spurs drew 1-1 with Norwich in their worst game of the fledgling season so far but it's the beginning of something new that'll take time.
...met with indifference. With the first leg score pretty much setting the scene for a nothing game for the return leg at The Lane, it didn't disappoint.
...but a ding dong battle of a derby. But in the end no matter how exciting and what a good game of football a three all draw did Spurs no favours in the chase for Champions League football.
...means a bit of rearrangement. Is it time for 'Arry Redknapp to change Spurs' formation to utilise their best attacking options?
