...mercies. After Spurs' last few outings a point away to the South London scum of ARSEnal shouldn't be sniffed at.
..plumb. Just when you thought recent results were bad enough along comes one of the league's bottom teams, West Brom, to beat Spurs at home.
...Levy saw it. Does he still believe in Tim Sherwood? Can anyone really after that gutless 4-0 capitulation to Liverpool at Anfield?
...omnishambles? Another embarrassing clusterfuck against a top 4 side by players and surprise, surprise officials as they again capitulated in the weakest manner possible to lose 4-0 to Chelsea.
...baffling good management. Timmy's had a lucky run of fixtures since back stabbing his way into the job, this certainly didn't change with an 4-0 away thrashing of Newcastle. But Timmy changed things and for the better.
...there. Man City went one up after 14 seconds and Spurs made it easy for them in the rest of the 90 minutes as they racked up another five goals.
...Europa League tour. Spurs at it again, a sort of lacklustre dropping down to the oppositions level as they put three past Tromso in the opening Europa League group game.
...worse. Five nil up from the first game, five away goals, against a side that wasn't in any reality going to get back level, and a home side that was second to third string, Spurs' Europa League qualifier second leg against Dinamo Tbilisi had nil nil written all over it.
...Brown. This is where Tottenham Hotspur take the role of the Harlem Globetrotters while Dinamo Tbilisi the Washington Generals. As Spurs thrash Dinamo 5-0 with some excellent goals in the Euopa League qualifier.
...Münchner. As Spurs sweat on the top line, hoping Bayern do Chelski in the Champions League final, it wouldn't surprise to find out that means
I'm a doughnut.
...bugger all. Until you win the three pints. And Spurs did that with a 2-0 victory over Everton in their game postponed from the start of the season.
...the team picks up three points playing poorly? Well Spurs certainly got the playing poorly right against West Brom as they struggled to get the win.
...to Stoke that sorts the men from the boys? It certainly did a job on Spurs during the first half while referee Chris Foy did it in the second.
...merchants. The shirts Spurs wear do seem to have an effect on the way things go. This new purple thing means shoddy, sloppy, slack performance ending in a 3-1 victory.
...easier? Aston Villa let Spurs cruise to a 2-0 victory, that moves them up to 3rd in the league, with an odd choice of players and tactics by Alex McLeish.
