Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
After a game against City in which we saw Spurs do some very positive things that were negated by the brilliance of Sergio Aguero and incompetence from the referee, the mid-week Europa League game seems most important, especially from a “get back on track” perspective.
