...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.
...but that didn't do the rest of us any good. Even for Spurs this was extreme backs to the wall job but totally unlike Spurs this ended up with another three points. Which might have had a calming effect on 'Arry's heart.
...and possession...you've had a bad game and are damn lucky to get away from Lancashire with three more points.
...we are bottom of the league. Not a particularly good start to the premier League campaign by Spurs a three nil defeat at ManUre.
...are you sure? How can it be an honest mistake when the linesman is supposed to know the laws of the game and is supposed to be 100% sure when making a call not just guessing about something he really didn't see.
...with little talent. Newcastle came to The Lane with little intent on playing football but just to stifle Spurs and frustrate with spoiling tactics, it ended with Spurs down to ten men but also a clean sheet and the 3 points.
