Spurs Arrive

This week, Dan has invited his Liverpool-supporting friend George onto the podcast to discuss - or argue over - the weekend mauling of Liverpool, our first win over the Reds in 10 games.

After a quick discussion about George's experience of being a fan at Wembley (1m15s), we of course have to start with our heroic but completely warranted point away at Real Madrid (7m14s). What did we think of Pochettino's surprise line-up? Is Winks the second coming of Modric? And where does this leave Spurs in terms of our status on the European stage?

We move onto Liverpool and the gradual dismantling of Klopp's laughable defence (15m20s). Dan and George argue over the targeting of Liverpool's defence, and whether it was a deliberate plan of Pochettino or merely terrible individual errors. What indication was the game of where Spurs and Liverpool both are? Was this the statement win we were looking for at Wembley?

Thoughts turn to West Ham (40m15s) and who we are likely to start, in particular in midfield where numbers are short. The big talking point is the return of Lamela after a year out, and Tom and Dan stake their claims for and against his place in the team going forward.

We finish with a preview of Man United, with us travelling to Old Trafford in good form (46m50s). Will we face a United side looking for a backlash after a disappointing two weeks, or can we continue our momentum?

Listener questions include what does Jordan Henderson do, plus Kane's likelihood of going to Madrid. Enjoy. COYS.
