Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
One nil to the Tottenham last night brought about more praise and, of course, more condemnation. But there was also a welcome return for a familiar discussion – the enigma that is Kyle Naughton at right back.
Other than his impromptu ‘selfie’ with one of last night’s pitch invaders, Naughton’s performance was very much underwhelming for a lot of those watching the game. Naughton, last night, had been accused of returning back to his ‘former-self’, as if to suggest the 26-year-old had once shown quality that has never been recaptured.
Despite small improvements shown by...
Benjamin Stambouli snatched his first goal in a Spurs shirt to seal the side’s progression into the knockout stages of the Europa League on a disjointed night at the Lane.

Ben Pearce’s article on the Tottenham & Wood Green Journal is doing the rounds on the social media sites and is causing a bit of a stir.

So what did Pochettino say in his press conference? Here are his words: “They [the players] don’t have a manager, they have a...
