    Match Threads Spurs vs RB Leipzig 1st leg - Match Thread

    Winks, Gedson and Dele battled away last night, in difficult circumstances. (Dele has scored some fine goals against Chelsea.) I'd expect to see them play on Saturday, and if not start with Lamela and Ndombele then definitely have them come on early in the second half. Davies might well get a...

    Whining tests the patience of other people within earshot of it. Nobody misses a whiner. It's a relief not to be with one.

    Match Threads Spurs vs RB Leipzig 1st leg - Match Thread

    Last night Lamela and Ndombele coming on as substitutes helped give the side a second half-lift and the means to exert more pressure up front. The two players they replaced — a team stalwart and the other a new boy —had each put in a good game and may well feature in Saturday's game against...

    A material factor when comparing the two teams last night. Thanks for the information.

    It's the ones who suck their thumb after scoring a goal who look like twits. It's such a naff gesture.

    How do you know any of this? Players often are tired after a match, all the more when a change in personnel has only recently been forced on a team. Spurs know they are 0-1 behind yet there is a second leg in a few weeks' time. Last night's match is something that fans from a distance can...

    Pochettino: I'd love a Premier League return

    And interestingly, the newspaper 'back pages' two-way discussion and interview with journalist Simon Johnson( sp?) going on just after midnight Saturday on Talksport Radio, reports that Pochettino and a stint at City is rather more likely than not.

    Let's All Laugh At... Lets all laugh at Man City

    They'll put all efforts into domestic competitions. A manageable aim, all the more as rival clubs will be playing matches in Europe too. It could be like that league-winning season that Leicester City had a few seasons ago.

    Breaking News that may affect this: Manchester City banned from Europa League and European Champions League for the next two seasons. And they've been fined about £25m.

    Pochettino: I'd love a Premier League return

    Although the media agents of Manchester United have long had him 'linked' to that club —along with 109 players in the summer transfer window, according to Ed Woodward complaining about that weeks later —evidence of Poch and United is circumstantial and no more than that. Latest was Poch being...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    This could all go horribly wrong, but it’s one hell of a statement of intent, and I think Levy and the board should be applauded for putting their balls on the line like this. I was very encouraged to read about training at Spurs this morning that Mourinho had them doing balls up in the air.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    It's more like 'the cold water of reality'. Others might have called it 'lighting the blue touch paper'. Whatever, as it's the 'fun' and attention-seeking element of appointing Mourinho that has excited comment and thrilled the desperate, get used to the fact that much laughter at celebrity is...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    On the other hand, I see that Chelsea and Manchester United have been vying with each other to get the sculptor Antony Gormley to memorialise Mourinho's respective cock-ups: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Event_Horizon_(sculpture)#/media/File:Gormley-10Je7-8118_crop_reverse.jpg

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Key words here being 'probably' and 'if', and all it refers to are 'rumours'. If I could be bothered I could dream up 250 rumours for you in, 10 minutes, say. You could knock up a hundred more yourself, as could anybody, in mere minutes. Rumours are like leaves in a London park in autumn — thick...
