first_imgTOTTENHAM fans cannot say they did not see this coming.Poor for most of the game in their 3-1 opening day win at home to Aston Villa and undeniably second-best in their 2-2 draw at Manchester City last week, Spurs’ luck ran out as Joelinton’s first-half strike earned Newcastle their first win of the season.6 Joelinton netted his first goal as a Newcastle player since his £40million summer moveCredit: AFP or licensors6 The striker opened the lead after 27 minutes at the Tottenham Hotspur StadiumCredit: AP:Associated PressThe Tottenham striker and England captain was way below par – and he was not the only poor performer in a white shirt.Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura did little to stave off the threat of new signing Giovani Lo Celso.And questions will be asked of boss Pochettino for dropping Christian Eriksen to the bench when Tottenham desperately needed the Dane’s guile and creativity against a resolute Toon defence.Eyebrows will also be raised at Jan Vertonghen being as unused sub.He surely has to be a better option than Davinson Sanchez, who was left flat-footed when sub Christian Atsu crossed for Joelinton to drive a low shot past keeper Hugo Lloris for Newcastle’s winner in the 27th minute.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big onemost read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himTottenham huffed and puffed but could not make a breakthrough with Moura blazing over from eight yards when it seemed easier to score.The North Londoners were booed by their own fans at the final whistle.While the future for Newcastle, in their orange away kit, is brighter than it was this morning.6 Steve Bruce’s men celebrate their shock openerCredit: AP:Associated Press6 Spurs were sure they should have had a penalty after Lascelles looked to have brought Kane downCredit: AFP or licensors6 After a VAR check the officials decided to stick with their decision of no penaltyCredit: Reuters6 Tottenham were booed by their own fans at the final whistleCredit: AP:Associated Presslast_img read more

first_imgWere do you want your statue Serge?— Beardedblackman (@BeyondArsenal) October 1, 2019 The former Arsenal man had a night to remember as the German giants obliterated Tottenham 7-2 at Spurs’ new ground.And then Gnabry, 24, took to Twitter to rub it in even more.After a miserable spell on loan at West Brom – where Tony Pulis deemed him not good enough – Arsenal decided to let the young talent join Werder Bremen for a paltry £5million in 2016.Since then, he has shone in the Bundesliga and was named Bayern’s player of the season last term.The winger, 24, is now one of the best in the business and enjoyed a masterclass against Tottenham.Arsenal fans could not believe they let him go – especially for such a low fee and with the club spending £72m on Nicolas Pepe, who has failed to shine just yet.Serge Gnabry loses the match ball after team-mates trip him up and kick the ball into the Bayern fansAnd plenty replied to Gnabry’s tweet to show how fond they are of their former prodigy.One wrote on Twitter: “I love you so much.”Another said: “Yes it is, Serge. Yes it is.”A third asked: “Where do you want your statue Serge?”And a final user added: “Once a Gooner Always a Gooner”Bayern Munich even got in on the banter – as they often do with their Twitter account – and joked: “So nice to be back in North London with loads of Arsenal fans in our notifications.”But it was not all good news for Gnabry – as he was brutally bullied by his team-mates after the full-time whistle.So nice to be back in North London with loads of Arsenal fans in our notifications 🙃 pic.twitter.com/OfmhcnNhzY— FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) October 1, 2019 2 Serge Gnabry proved Arsenal should not have let him go as he smashed four past helpless Spurs then declared: ‘North London is RED’Credit: Getty – ContributorLatest Champions League newsREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’CITY SITUATIONChampions Lg & Europa Lg to be played in ONE host city from quarters onwardREDS TEST2005 Champions League final quiz – How well do you remember Istanbul 15 years on?CRYING SHAMEPoch couldn’t stop crying after CL final as he talks for first time since axeEUR JOKINGCity, Chelsea & Man U’s dreams in jeopardy as govt impose quarantine on arrivalsRevealedLUK RAN OUTLukaku says he will NEVER forgive Chelsea flop AVB for 2012 Champ League axeRevealedRUSSIAN ROULETTEMan Utd’s 2008 Champions League Moscow heroes and where they are nowDefender Niklas Sule jokingly slide tackled the winger, tripping him up in front of the celebrating Bayern fans.And then Javi Martinez booted the match ball – won by Gnabry for his four-goal haul – into the stand.After a clip of the incident was posted online, one Arsenal fan replied: “Come home, we’ll take better care of you @Serge Gnabry @Arsenal.”Yes it is, Serge.

first_imgJOSE MOURINHO showed again last night how much he loves quick-thinking ball boys after one helped Tottenham beat Olympiakos.The art of throwing the ball back on to the pitch quickly enough to keep the play moving is one that the Portuguese coach takes very seriously.3 Mourinho thanked his Spurs ball boy for his role in the Olympiacos winCredit: BT Sport3 He told a Crystal Palace youngster to be quick ‘or get punched’ by a player in 2014Credit: Getty Images – GettyTuesday night saw a ball boy hastily lob Serge Aurier the ball to continue the momentum of an attack.The Ivorian set Lucas Moura away down the wing so he had the time and space to pick out Harry Kane for the equaliser in the 4-2 win.Mourinho responded ecstatically, high-fiving and embracing the lad who helped his side claim victory in his first game at Tottenham Stadium.The ball boys and girls at Spurs can expect to receive extra focus with the 56-year-old in charge.As a former ball boy himself, he has incredibly high standards for the troop of youngsters and wants them to play a role in his tactical system.Speaking on pundit duties earlier in the year, he told RT: “You want a quick throw-in, the ball boy needs to know that you want a quick throw-in.Jose Mourinho celebrates with Spurs ball boy after his quick thinking leads to Champions League equaliser”The ball needs to arrive fast. The goal kicks, the tempo of the game, the ball boys can also play a part in a good structure.”That can result in some negative feedback for his ball boys and girls, Mourinho famously sacking the kids at Manchester United because they were too slow at returning the ball.And, in March 2014, he had a run-in with a Crystal Palace ball boy that he felt Cesar Azpilicueta “was going to lose emotional control” with in the dying moments of a 1-0 defeat.The Chelsea defender was unhappy with the perceived slow response of the youngster, with Mourinho saying afterwards: “I went to stop Azpi and after that I had a chance to get the kid and the kid was cute.When I was a ball boy, I even knew where the players wanted the ball for a corner, so they didn’t need to touch the ball.Jose Mourinho”He came to me and I told him, ‘You do this, one day will somebody punch you’. It’s not their fault.”Mason Mount has even claimed to being a ball boy at the club, the midfielder being on the books at Chelsea since 2005.With Mourinho as his old boss, the England star recently told the Blues website: “The first thing I really remember is being ball boy at the games. That was a big thing for me, I was so buzzing about that. You can’t really be any closer than that.”One thing that did stick with me was Jose Mourinho coming to us and telling us that if we’re winning in the Champions League, don’t throw the ball back quick. Keep hold of the ball. Don’t throw it back.”In the pursuit of success, every small detail is important to some managers and they can often be mocked for trying to micro-manage.Jurgen Klopp’s throw-in coach was one such example and Spurs will need to honour Mourinho’s desire to get the ball boys and girls up to speed if they are to be, in his words, a “real” club.latest football newsSILVA’S GOLDEN GIRLModel Ines Tomaz has been helping Bernardo Silva through quarantineGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBAYERN 5 DUSSELDORF 0Lewa bags two as Bayern thump rivals to close on 8th straight titleHe claimed back in the summer: “I had a club where they never understood how important the ball boys are.”I was a ball boy, a top ball boy.

However, an Andalusian injury gave way to the international with the Netherlands, who took the opportunity for several days.
