    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    I suspect that was always the guiding idea behind the years-long campaign in the media to separate Pochettino from Spurs. The realisation that he was pivotal to weakening Spurs and strengthening others who had a shared interest in that separation. A separation that had it happened then several...

    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    Kane puts in 100% because he's Harry Kane. He's our pride and joy, though he's not our only one. We have some fine players, a credit to whoever coached and guided them to be that way.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Poch did well and achieved much while at Tottenham. Sacked in an act of stupidity, and still his reputation soars.

    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    Harry Kane isn't someone's glove puppet, is he? Far more reliable to listen to Harry himself when ever he talks about aspects of domestic football, his career, international competition, scoring targets, etc. He's alway thoughtful and positive in his approach to matters football.

    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    Who was it pointing out... Given the list that followed and the glib comments attached, it must have been some anti-Spurs interest or lobbyist that has his or her eye on current Spurs players he'd rather have at the club he represents. Getting any suggestible Spurs fans to regurgitate, and so...

    Why Ndombele could be a bigger problem than Spurs realised

    Mention of whom, a reminder of just how much Sissoko's presence, skill, style and work-rate have been missed.

    Odd, then, that the Southampton fans we usually hear from are the ones angry that he chose to leave that club. Resentful about it for some years, actually.

    He hadn't "lost the dressing room". Cast your mind back only a few months to when Pochettino was sacked and how generally stunned — sorry, another cliche — were the players at Spurs. Embarrassed and appalled at their own omissions in the opening weeks of this season, too, if I recall correctly...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    He should smile at interviews and make sure to say much less. He should speak in generalities. That's all he has to do: be charming, philosophical, and essentially say 'Despite difficulties, we carry on'. None of this interview lark has anything to do with managing a football team. Interviews...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Never mind all that matey, that's football. It was all about 'Mourinho v Lampard', apparently. Didn't you know?

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Which his post match Interview did nothing to dispel. Post-match and pre-match, there are far too many interviews. By media demand, and using sponsors to force that kind of arrangement, it has nothing to do with football. Nothing at all. It's about commerce and selling. All managers/coaches in...

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Gomes was brave and would fling himself about in defence in the Tottenham penalty area. There was also a period of some months before Redknapp was turned to as manager and coach, when Gomes in goal and winger Aaron Lennon were the two Spurs players who match after match put in great effort to...

    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...

    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...
