Spurs 1 Middlesbrough 0

Harry Kane’s second-half penalty was enough to see off a resolute Middlesbrough side at the Lane on Saturday. Although dominating possession and chances created throughout the game, it needed Kane’s 58th minute spot kick to break the deadlock and ultimately win the game as Aitor Karanka’s side proved to be a typically tough unit to penetrate.

We controlled the first half with Victor Valdes making a good save from Heung-Min Son, Toby Alderweireld heading a corner against the post and Kane putting a header over the bar after a good move among our best chances, but we couldn’t find a way through by the interval.

Valdes was called into action again by Christian Eriksen early in the second period before we eventually opened the scoring. Son was brought down by Espinosa Bernardo inside the area and Kane buried his penalty, driving the ball into the bottom right with Valdes diving the other way.

Further chances fell to Son, who hit the side-netting, and Eriksen, his curling effort deflecting off Fabio and away for a corner, while Boro did have a couple of sights of goal late on. Alvaro Negredo connected with Fabio’s cross with an acrobatic scissor kick in the 86th minute but it went wide of Hugo Lloris’ far post and they had a glorious chance in stoppage time, Marten de Roon volleying wide with only Lloris to beat.

We held firm though, making it 10 wins and two draws from our 12 Premier League games at the Lane this season and closing the gap on leaders Chelsea back to nine points.

After a recording and touring career spanning five decades, heavy metal pioneers BLACK SABBATH brought it to a close in the city where it all began — Birmingham, England — with the final show of “The End” tour having taken place tonight at the Genting Arena.

Prior to the concert, SABBATH singer Ozzy Osbourne said: “Since I’ve got to this building, I’ve been happy, I’ve been tearful. Let’s see what happens.”

Ozzy last week called his life with BLACK SABBATH “the most incredible adventure” and said the band had “run its course.”

“One of the proudest things I have in my heart is the fact that BLACK SABBATH wasn’t a band that was created by some big mogul,” he said. “It was four guys who said, ‘Let’s have a dream,’ and it came true beyond our wildest expectations.”
SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi said that he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of doing one-off shows. He explained: “I wouldn’t write that off, if one day that came about. That’s possible. Or even doing an album, ’cause then, again, you’re in one place. But I don’t know if that would happen.”
SABBATH’s “The End” tour was its last because Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and is currently in remission, can no longer travel for extended amounts of time. He admitted: “It was only when I got ill, that’s when I stated getting vulnerable. Before that, I could do anything… And they’re going, ‘You shouldn’t be flying, really.’ And, ‘You shouldn’t be doing this, you shouldn’t be doing that.’ So that’s what brought that about — the end of this, really, because the constant touring does eventually get to you.”
SABBATH wrote and recorded its 2013 reunion album, “13”, and toured it all over the world while Iommi was going through treatment for his illness, with the guitarist having to fly back to England every six weeks.
Asked what he’ll do after SABBATH, Iommi replied, “I’m wondering, because it’s gonna be such a weird thing, because BLACK SABBATH’s always been my life, ever since day one, and everything’s fell by the wayside to BLACK SABBATH — all the marriages and everything — over the band, basically, because I’m always out working and always doing this, always in the studio. So it’s gonna be pretty weird, that last show.”
The original lineup of SABBATH came together in 1969 with Osbourne on vocals, Iommi on guitar, Geezer Butler on bass and Bill Ward on drums. That lineup recorded and toured through 1978, and periodically reformed through the ’90s and 2000s for live work.
They regrouped again in late 2011 for a new album and tour, although Ward dropped out after just a few months. SABBATH has used singer Ozzy Osbourne’s regular touring drummer Tommy Clufetos since then for live work. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE’s Brad Wilk laid down the drum tracks on “13”, which came out in June 2013.

Iron Man

Black Sabbath

Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
We’ll just pass him there
why should we even care?
He was turned to steel
in the great magnetic field
When he travelled time
for the future of mankind
Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance
that he will soon unfurl
Now the time is here
for Iron Man to spread fear
Vengeance from the grave
Kills the people he once saved
Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge
Heavy boots of lead
fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron Man lives again!

Heaven And Hell

Black Sabbath

Sing me a song, you’re a singer
Do me a wrong, you’re a bringer of evil
The Devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you’re a taker
So it’s on and on and on, it’s Heaven and Hell, oh well

The lover of life’s not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
The sooner you’ll know that you’re dreaming
So it’s on and on and on, oh it’s on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell, fool, fool!

Well if it seems to be real, it’s illusion
For every moment of truth, there’s confusion in life
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
And it’s on and on, on and on and on….

They say that life’s a carousel
Spinning fast, you’ve got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they’ll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh no!
Fool, fool!
You’ve got to bleed for the dancer!
Fool, fool!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!

Children Of The Grave

Black Sabbath

Revolution in their minds – the children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
and all the hate that’s in their hearts
They’re tired of being pushed around
and told just what to do
They’ll fight the world until they’ve won
and love comes flowing through
Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?
So you children of the world,
listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in
spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive
you must be brave
Or you children of today are
Children of the Grave, Yeah!

Paranoid

Finished with my woman ’cause she couldn’t help me with my mind
people think I’m insane because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I’ll lose my mind if I don’t find something to pacify
Can you help me occupy my brain?
Oh yeah
I need someone to show me the things in life that I can’t find
I can’t see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind
Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it’s too late
