Seems strange that he's not travelling to Turin. He coped well with 90 minutes v Newport and his experience could be vital and he could have been on the bench. I'm assuming Foyth isn't in the CL squad to accomodate Moura (could be wrong though). Not trying to stir things up, but it seems an odd decision to me.

There you go then. They don’t want to rush him, quite rightly, but he wants to play in the big games, understandably so.. So there may have been a disagreement in words. I’d be upset if he didn’t want to play, and I’d think we were stupid if we were rushing him back. So all makes sense to me.

Hey Toby, take a look at Mr D Sturridge to see what happens in injuries aren't managed properly. Not having matchsticks for tendons also helps.

Serious question: does anyone here have solid insight as to how long Pochettino will stay with us? I had a discussion with a friend, who was worried about him leaving for Real Madrid. I didn't think this was the case, but I was worried that he may be tempted by PSG. I did say to him that I wasn't sure that at either club he'd be given the opportunity to impose his own philosophy. I cling to the hope that what he wants is to build a massive legacy in the manner of Ferguson, to build and rebuild sides, Spurs becoming a world power in his image. These opportunities are very rare. I'm still worried, though.

Because Poch got pissed off with the questions about one player in the post-match press conference, the next opportunity they have to get back at him sees them link Toby away. Mature.

He's been out injured for so long. They gave him a run against Newport, did okay but Poch says he was a different player there - suggesting he's not quite up to speed yet - so he stays back to work on fitness. Logical.

Of course there may be other things behind the scenes but they don't have to be linked.

Wrong thread?

Didn't know where else to write it and I was having a panic attack. Supporting Spurs is not good for my health. I only hyperventilate when I watch Spurs and thought I was going to pass out at half-time. It's getting ridiculous!
