There. I’ve said it.I won’t be the most popular person at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but I can’t keep it in any longer.Mauricio Pochettino is clearly a good manager.He’s moved Spurs up from being a team fighting to get into the top four, to a team finishing in the top four (although, the way they’re playing at the moment, that run could be coming to an end).But I don’t think he can take us any further – and it doesn’t look like he wants to.Read more HERE.Jake Lambourne21 Oct 2019, 10:11 amTONY CASCARINO believes Mauricio Pochettino still doesn’t know what his best backline is following the 1-1 draw against Watford.The ex-Chelsea striker told talkSPORT: “Pochettino got his team selection wrong.“Whatever you say, at the start of the game, if you set up one way and it’s wrong. You set the team up.“He’s not sure of his XI, he doesn’t know. Certainly his back four and five, he doesn’t have a clue who he thinks is his best player to stick in there.“At this moment, there are a number of players in the Spurs squad who you can say that they don’t deserve a place in the starting XI.”Jake Lambourne21 Oct 2019, 9:38 amEXCLUSIVE by Alan Shearer: Why was Dele Alli’s goal against Watford allowed to stand? If the ball hits you on the Premier League badge or below, it’s your arm and therefore a handball.We’re almost in November and no one seems any wiser to how VAR is being used.I want VAR technology to work, I really do. When it was brought in, we were told it would provide “minimum interference, maximum benefit”.They want trust between the ref and VAR but, come on, it’s just not being used properly.You will not see a clearer penalty than when Watford’s Gerard Deulofeu was brought down by Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen.How professional referees looking at that incident in real time, and then in slow-motion, don’t think that is a penalty is beyond me.Jake Lambourne21 Oct 2019, 9:07 amROY KEANE has told Manchester United there is a simple solution to their goalscoring problems – sign Harry Kane.United have been struggling for goals this season after the club took the decision to sell Romelu Lukaka to Inter Milan.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s have scored just ten goals in nine Premier League matches this season having left themselves short of options up front.United legend Keane is in no doubt what his former club have to do if they want to solve the problem and return to the top table – break the bank to sign Kane from Tottenham.And he says the current mess Spurs find themselves in this season gives them the ideal opportunity to snatch the England captain from the North London club.Keane told Sky Sports: “Just go and get Harry Kane from Spurs, easy. You look at me as though I’m not being serious. Go and buy him.“He scores 25 goals a season with his eyes shut. They’re in disarray, go get him.”Adam Storer21 Oct 2019, 8:07 amTOTTENHAM have struggled to get results of late after their controversial draw against Watford extended their winless run to three matches.But defender Toby Alderweireld is remaining positive ahead of a massive clash against Liverpool next weekend.As reported by the Mirror, the Belgian said: “You can see it two ways. It’s a big opportunity for us on Tuesday [against Crvena Zvezda]. We must use that.“Then Sunday is a big opportunity. Look, we’re a team, let’s go again. Let’s go, like that second half [against Watford]. Our best, it’s all we can do.”Marc Mayo21 Oct 2019, 9:12 pmMarc Mayo21 Oct 2019, 8:29 pmTOTTENHAM WOMEN secured a victory over West Ham today.Rachel Furness hit the winning penalty in the Conti Cup shootout after the Hammers scored two stoppage time goals to make it 2-2 in 90 minutes.It means Spurs secure a bonus point despite the draw to get off the mark in Group D of the competition.Marc Mayo21 Oct 2019, 7:44 pmDARREN BENT is looking forward to Ryan Sessegnon getting some game time at Spurs.But the former Tottenham striker wants fans to give young wing-back Sessegnon time to adapt after a long injury lay-off.He told Football Insider: “He can help bring something at left-back and he can play left-wing so he can help them down that whole left side, so he can give them another dimension.“Obviously it’s going to take him some time to learn how they play and it may be a little bit tough for him as when you’re a young player and you’ve gone to a new team, and that team isn’t playing that well, it won’t do you any favours.“Especially when you’re coming back off an injury so hopefully they bed him in slowly, but I’m sure it won’t be too long before he’s up to speed.”Marc Mayo21 Oct 2019, 5:49 pm⚽ @dele_official’s late strike against Watford.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 19, 2019Joe Brophy20 Oct 2019, 4:44 pmTHE company supplying VAR in the Premier League has apologised to Tottenham and Watford fans after an error during their 1-1 draw.Dele Alli salvaged a late point for Spurs but there was confusion over whether the goal had stood after the big screen mistakenly displayed a “no goal” verdict.A statement on Twitter read: “Hawk-Eye apologises to Spurs and Watford fans for the confusion caused.“We are working together with the Professional Game Match Officials Board [the body responsible for professional match officials in England] and the Premier League to understand the root cause of this problem and propose a series of measures to ensure it won’t happen again.”Joe Brophy20 Oct 2019, 3:36 pmMAURICIO POCHETTINO recently ruled out a January signing spree as he looks to turn Tottenham’s troubled season around, and the Argentine restated his position.He added: “I am clear with you. I don’t say yes or no. I don’t say we are going to sign or not sign, sell or not sell.“It is not the moment to talk, when the time arrives we are going to take that decision in one way or another.“Now is the time to stay all together, all of the squad, with the staff and the fans and try and change the atmosphere.“We are not going to get any benefit to talk about January, it is too far away, we have got a lot of games to play.“That is the structure of the club that is working and thinking and they need to be ready if we need to do something, if not we keep going, but I am happy with the squad, I am happy with the players.“Like always, what is going to happen in January I cannot guess today, what happens will happen.”Load more entries…last_img
