    Ian Ladyman: What if Rudiger was wrong?

    An article written about allegations of racism authored by a journalist named Ladyman. It's like this article was especially designed to give my older family members heart attacks.

    Marouane Fellaini

    I remember a few years ago he was complaining to the press that he got harsher treatment from referees because he's scary looking, which is obviously ridiculous. He's just ugly is all.

    Was worried about his ankle and wanted him pulled after his second goal, but in hindsight I'm glad Mourinho gave him a chance to run it off. The week's break should do him good.

    Next Spurs Manager (No longer with groundbreaking 'Change vote' functionality)

    Official site has crashed, any idea who the caretaker manager is for Saturday? This really sucks, hate that it ended this way.

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    It's no more unreasonable than the amateur psychologists on here diagnosing him using criteria that any professional would reject as insufficient. Or, for that matter, people ignoring everything they said before about Eriksen (a guy who had flaws but was still respected for his service to the...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    Spurs fans for the past 5 years: "Man, Eriksen is one of our most important players and he never gets a rest. If we don't get him some backup ASAP, he's going to either get hurt or completely burn himself out, both physically and mentally." [Eriksen begins showing signs of extreme burnout, in...

    I mean, if there's any chance of Eriksen finding form again, you'd think these would be the games to give him a little confidence. Then again, he's not the only guy on the squad who could use a run-out (I'm thinking of Sess in particular).

    Great work by Tanguy and Dele in the build up to that goal. Great finish by Son too, could have kicked it through the net

    Respectfully, I think a lot of us are overestimating our club's ability to close out games at this point in time. The sending off certainly didn't help, but acting like the three points were in the bag until the red card doesn't match with my impressions of the match as I was watching it...

    Will be interesting to see if he traveled with the team to Belgrade. Either way I hope he's doing alright mentally. Even seeing something like that is traumatic, much less being involved in how it happened.

    Haven't seen many details on the reasons why the card was rescinded, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did it based on Atkinson's actions (giving a yellow first, then a red based on crowd and player reactions) rather than the panel making a judgment call on the severity of the tackle. Still...

    Player Watch: Hugo Lloris

    Feel terrible for the guy and hope he recovers soon, for the sake of his personal life if nothing else. I know he's made some huge mistakes the past few months, but based off of Paulo's form in preseason, I'm still a little worried about the months ahead without Hugo.

    Stats show Walker-Peters is ready to take over from shambolic Aurier

    In the coaching staff's defense, he's been hurt (think it happened against Newcastle?) Was thinking about KWP's performance in Barcelona last year in light of the Bayern game. Obviously, his slip against Dembele cost us a goal and made him look overmatched, but he picked his head up and ended...

    The Mauricio Pochettino thread

    As Steve Austin and the Office of Scientific Information proved, once you throw enough money at someone, their physical limitations become a thing of the past. OSI estimated the cost at $6 million, but I don't know what that converts to in your currency.
