    Pochettino: Tottenham’s playing philosophy is ‘impossible’ to change now

    Poch has this style of playing that requires players to be brave. Pep of course plays a similar style and I don't see too many people asking him to change things. I was at the Liverpool game and agree totally we were too slow and cumbersome against a Liverpool side who gave us lots of time and...

    Great round by Ollie Fisher today. The first player to break 60 on the European Tour with a 59 (twelve under par) in Portugal

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Worried that we don't seem to have learnt from previous mistakes. Also worried that we need to many chances to score goals. So often in games we fail to close out games which allows teams to get back at us. It's easy just to blame the defence or midfield but in too many games we make a lot of...

    He will be licking his lips, rubbing his hands with glee and placing a big bet on himself to score a headed goal or two from set pieces

    We took off almost all our attacking players and so took pressure off Inter. they no longer even had to think about defending and could go all out in attack. We load the midfield and defence but give the opposition, as usual, the freedom of our area at corners. Even Wenger teams can defend...

    Can;t see what all the fuss is about Trips and Toby not playing. Poch always rotates full backs when he has all of them fit. Plus Toby has been feeling his way back in so a rest is OK. Moura has played all games with a lot of intensity and is not used to unrelenting nature of the EPL so not...

    Not sure these pairings are right from the European point of view. Would suggest they Garcia will play with Rahm plus Stenton with Noren. Playing nationals together often works well especially when One is a rookie. Anyway really look forward to the greatest sporting event there is. Europe to...

    Eric Dier- defender or midfielder ?

    Dier is best in front of the back four in the holding role. He is an excellent player who I believe suffers from being too versatile. It seems we criticise him for being able to play in too many positions.

    Pochettino's tactics did not help vs Liverpool

    I have not read the article as this site always opens up lots of unwanted windows. What I can say is that every season so far Poch has experimented with players and formations in the first couple of months of the season and then settled. I think with the emergence of Moura, the re-introduction...

    Has to be Lucas. Loved it in the second half when he encountered the fans to get behind the team. Wembley really hurts us as far as the atmosphere is concerned; I look forward to being back home purely in the hope we can make the place a cauldron of noise

    Poor display but could have been so much better. As always we started as though just woken up from a short nap. However, we settled into the game and were showing some control of midfield in a hard fought game. We moved the ball quickly and there was plenty of movement from the players too. We...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Harry Kane

    The problem is that Kane on form operates at a level way above most strikers on the planet. His goalscoring record over the last few seasons is in the Messi and Ronaldo category so like them he has no direct replacement. An 80% Kane can still turn a game so I understand playing him constantly...
