Erik, give him his ball back

10:30 am
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino made light of the penalty squabble of Erik Lamela and Son Heung-min at the time, but his words did acknowledge that it was a problem that needed solving.

"It's difficult from the touchline to say 'no, you' because they're fighting and I cannot run to the middle of the pitch and say 'no, you'."

As Gary Neville said at the time, there would have been a designated penalty taker on the changing room wall so the embarrassing squabble shouldn't have taken place. Did it affect the penalty? It has to have done but a penalty should still be tucked away. It was weak, to near the goalkeeper, hit with no conviction and was at a nice height. Just as everyone can't be a goalkeeper Harry Kane, some can't be penalty takers. It is a pressure situation where you need to be mentally strong and therefore confident. poor penalties are from a lack of confidence.

Former Tottenham captain Steve Perryman, who lifted a few trophies for us, felt Mauricio Pochettino would sort it out and make sure it didn't happen again when he spoke to the Hertfordshire Mercury.

"The little bit of nonsense before the penalty, well if that's going to happen in a game that's 0-0 and they need to win and they make that same mistake, no-one is going to be to happy with it. So these problems sow themselves up and get solved and hopefully that wont happen again. 
"I'm sure a penalty will be missed but without the fracas that led to that one. You've got to learn from what you're doing and I think they've got the manager that is a football nutter and spending time at it, and spends enough time at the training ground that all those things are being covered and talked about and shown and improved."

Perryman: Spurs are close to 10 out of 10

11:30 pm

Growing up I was fortunate enough to watch the dependable Steve Perryman MBE a lot. he switched from midfield and played at the centre of our defence, amassing in total a record 866 first team appearances.

He was capped once by England, 17 times by England C and in 1982 voted by the Football Writers' Association as Footballer of the Year.

He has been speaking to the Hertfordshire Mercury and has asked supporters to keep up the great work and discussed Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino.

"Well done to you supporters, keep that great support you give to this team and this club, it makes it very special.

"Spurs have got quality, passion and drive and they've got the manager that looks like he's on top of them, I think he's got them where he wants them. 
"That's a hell of a cocktail of assets that they've got. When you're meeting anyone there's some judgement columns to be filled. The pace of a team, height or organisation of a team, the passion, and you have to say that the better team you are, for instance Man City are as close to ten as you'll get in all those aspects. 
"You've got to say on the evidence of Sunday, although it was a one-off game, that they are as close to ten out of ten at most of those things as you can get."

There is no doubt the Manchester City performance was a joy to behold. We need to maintain the mentality we had in that game and take that into the WBA encounter this weekend.
