Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino refused to be drawn into discussing the future of defender Toby Alderweireld but said the defender is likely to miss Sunday’s game at Crystal Palace through injury.

The 28-year-old has played only twice since the the turn of the year due to a hamstring problem he sustained in the victory over Real Madrid on November 1.

Pochettino revealed Alderweireld felt discomfort in the same area during training on Thursday and could now be left out of the Premier League trip to Selhurst Park.

“I think it was only Toby (on Thursday) who could not finish the training session,” the Argentinian said.

“He suffered a small incident in the same leg (as the hamstring injury), but we are going to assess him (on Friday and Saturday).

“We will see if he is available for training and if possible be selected for the weekend. We hope it is not a big issue.”

Reports on Friday (Times £WALL) suggested Spurs were ready to cash in on Alderweireld this summer.

The north London club have the option to extend the former Atletico Madrid defender’s contract by a year, taking it to 2020, but if they do so it would trigger a clause allowing him to leave for a set fee in 2019.

Mauricio Pochettino, pictured, is not involved in contract talks with Toby Alderweireld
To avoid that, Spurs could instead look to sell, but Pochettino insists he has nothing to do with such matters.

“I am not involved in negotiation. I never talk about rumours, what the media say or what happens around the club. It is not my job and I cannot say nothing about that.”

    I think a soft boiled egg just edges it past a poached egg with the bronze going to the fried egg and the scrambled egg just missing out in 4th and the hard boiled egg in 5th.
    I’m still undecided.

      It is. I’m not sleeping well these days. It’s bit eggzosted.

    Wanyama and Dier makes our midfield very prosaic. Miserable Toby is all tense and his legs gone bad 🙁

    • 61SpursNut🌰 February 25, 2018 at 11:12 am

      Dier will be at CB

  • cabspur February 25, 2018 at 11:11 am

    Lets hope Wanyama has his game on ,he looked rusty last time out.
    If gets match fit could be well handy in the run in .

  • Superspoz 🏆 February 25, 2018 at 11:11 am

    A knock in training! The guy has been solid in every game he’s played in and then he gets taken out by his own teammate woke training. W h a t t h e f u c k

    • cabspur February 25, 2018 at 11:03 am

      Is Verts injured or just having a well earned rest?

      • 61SpursNut🌰 February 25, 2018 at 11:04 am

        He sustained an ankle knock in training yesterday. Not a hammy as the Beeb reports.

        • cabspur February 25, 2018 at 11:06 am

          Dilly having you seen McDonagh’s earlier film ‘In Bruges’? Also has the same biting black humour and tragic scenes. One of my my favourites, some great scenes.

          • David Dillenberg February 25, 2018 at 10:36 am

            No as I seldom venture to the cinema many thanks for letting me know.

            • gloster1861 February 25, 2018 at 10:43 am

              It’s a must see. Also has a dwarf character in it in a pivotal story line which is so black, tragic, yet wickedly hilarious…

              • David Dillenberg February 25, 2018 at 10:44 am

                    She was in Fargo, the film. Look it up. Another good ‘un

                • gloster1861 February 25, 2018 at 10:48 am

                  She’s a previous Oscar winner for Fargo I believe. Great to see character actresses who aren’t typically beautiful. I loved the fact she wore a dress which wasn’t black to the BAFTAs. That was such an empty gimmick.

          • 61SpursNut🌰 February 25, 2018 at 10:37 am

            In Bruges is ace. I saw The Darkest Hour on Monday. Terrific film and a great score.

        The omelette is a separate issue

        • gloster1861 February 25, 2018 at 10:38 am

          Omelette is a versatile food. I shall be attempting to cook very thin ones and using them as wraps Tex Mex style for a guest who can’t eat wheat.

          • Superspoz 🏆 February 25, 2018 at 10:41 am

            One of my favs is with chestnut mushroom, spinach and ayshire cheese.

            • David Dillenberg February 25, 2018 at 10:42 am

              My favourite is a tortilla omlette.

            • Superspoz 🏆 February 25, 2018 at 10:44 am

              ..or with goats cheese

            • gloster1861 February 25, 2018 at 10:44 am

              Ayrshire? Never had it. Crumbly?

              • Superspoz 🏆 February 25, 2018 at 10:53 am

                No it’s not, it’s a hard pressed cheese. The wife started buying it recently, nutty but not too strong. Lovey favour.

                • Superspoz 🏆 February 25, 2018 at 10:56 am

                  Goats cheese is lovely for the crumbly version in an omelette. Add a bit of nutmeg to take it to another level.

  • Superspoz 🏆 February 25, 2018 at 10:14 am

    3 easy points today mifinks. Kane hat trick. Having said that they’ll probably score early,defend for 80 minutes and then we equalise with a penalty. But we all know it’ll finish nil nil.

  • Matt February 25, 2018 at 9:41 am

    Today, I am mainly a Man City fan.

  • Matt February 25, 2018 at 9:40 am

    Only 3 points will do. We need to be moving into the that top 4.

    • David Dillenberg February 25, 2018 at 10:21 am

      Yes coming to the business end of the season clearly there is no margin for error in pursuit of 4th spot. Hopefully the lads will have woken up and come out the blocks quickly at noon!

      • Superspoz 🏆 February 25, 2018 at 10:24 am

        I’ll be very very pissed off if we finish 4th.

        • David Dillenberg February 25, 2018 at 10:25 am

          Why?

          • gloster1861 February 25, 2018 at 10:30 am

            Because we’re better than ManUre and Liverpool, only City are as good.

    Is it true that the Caravan cup final between MCFC and AFC is also doubling as an EPL fixture? How is that fair to the rest of the league that they won’t have to play a catch up match? City don’t need any help to win the league and Ar5ena1 should not be getting help to stay in touch with Top 4. If this is true, then I guess money talks.

    Just seen the film, Three Billboards:
    Having swept awards, strongly tipped to win the Oscar for best film and best actress, littered with bad language and some violent scenes this excellent intense explosive film mixes both sadness and laughter throughout. Quoting one review “Writer/director Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy deftly melds black humour with tragedy in the tale of one bad mother (Frances McDormand), who holds local authorities accountable when she feels nothing is being done to solve her daughter’s murder. McDormand wields fiery emotion and biting humour in one of her most powerful performances to date”. Aided by superb supporting role performances from Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell adds to the enjoyment.

    It’s the FA cup final and a man makes his way to his seat at Wembley. He sits down and notices that the seat next to him is empty. He leans over and asks his neighbour if someone is sitting there. He responds, “No, the seat’s empty.” “The first man exclaims, “What?!? Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the cup final and not use it?” The neighbour responds, “Well the seat is mine, but my wife passed away and this is the first Cup final we haven’t been to together.” The first man responds,” I’m sorry to hear that. Wasn’t there anyone else, a friend or relative, that could’ve taken that seat?” The neighbour responds, “No, they’re all at the funeral.”

                  I’ve no problem with you as a lesson but sometimes your posts on stuff I don’t think many of us on here are bothered about.

                  If I was interested I’d visit the relevant websites concerning those football clubs, countries, theatres, tuppaware, crochet, people of irrelevance that keep popping up on here.

                  • East Stand February 24, 2018 at 7:05 pm

                    It’s the rather tedious ‘respect’ he seems to have for all things Ar5ena1 that isn’t really of any interest on a Spurs blog and that seems the most irrelevant subject of all. Almost as if he sees them as a club that sets an example for others to follow, if you think that, why make it known on a Spurs blog? Slightly bizarre but ‘each to their own’ and all that (YAWN)…

    • gloster1861 February 24, 2018 at 4:47 pm

      Kane needs to make hay in the next four league games. Six should be his target, put Salah back in his box.

      • Flynnbob February 24, 2018 at 6:21 pm

        I think he should be targeting 40 for the season .put an end once and for all to this ,who is the best striker business .

  • Flynnbob February 24, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    If Toby stays, Brilliant .if he goes then so be it, I’m not as worried about losing him as I was a year ago. Every game Verts no SAnchez play together they are getting stronger and could argue ATM they are the best partnership in the league.Toby leaving would give the lad Foyth more minutes wich can’t be a bad thing. Hopefully Toby sees sense and signs his new deal if not we will still be in safe hands .

    • Matt February 24, 2018 at 4:31 pm

      Spot on.

      • Andrew February 24, 2018 at 4:44 pm

        So we don’t need Toby any more. The player that everyone says knits our defense together is not good enough for us . What happens if we get a couple of injuries in defense? Yes you could be right, we were much better before he joined us.some people have short memories.

        • Matt February 24, 2018 at 5:07 pm

          I don’t say he knits our defence together. He’s a very good defender. Not as good as Vests over the last 18 months and often not there. But anvery good player.

          • Andrew February 24, 2018 at 5:10 pm

            Verts has been outstanding for sure. But imo verts improved playing along side Toby.

    • David Dillenberg February 24, 2018 at 4:39 pm

      IMO it’s a disaster if Toby goes.

      • Andrew February 24, 2018 at 4:45 pm

        I agree David, how Toby has fallen in the eyes of some supporters is astounding.

        • gloster1861 February 24, 2018 at 4:48 pm

          It’s denial. A coping mechanism.

        • Flynnbob February 24, 2018 at 5:12 pm

          Perhaps you misunderstood me, I still rate Toby as the best Cb in the league I also think we have the 2nd a 3rd best. I just mean if he wants out and he does go we’re in a pretty good situation to cope with it , I just wouldn’t sell him to any Pl club ,that would be idiotic

  • Andrew February 24, 2018 at 4:24 pm

    Toby is coming back from injury. Some fans criticizing him for not playing well the two games he has just played in probably think that we should sell Harry Kane because he doesn’t score in August. Toby will have a choice of top ambitious clubs if we do sell. He will do what Kyle Walker did and win trophies because he is quality. What will fans say if Sanchez loses form ( still only 21) ?? Well him as well?? We have got to where we are because our defence has been solid with a good team spirit, selling him will totally destroy that togetherness.

    • Still Nil Nil February 24, 2018 at 4:33 pm

      Odd comment re Harry Kane.

      Nobody regardless of their views on Toby would say that

      • Andrew February 24, 2018 at 4:52 pm

        Just trying to make my point. Toby improved us greatly,and some fans seem to be turning on him cause he is just coming back from a serious injury and isn’t fit yet. Frustrating that fans are critising a top class defender after a couple of poor games.

        • Still Nil Nil February 24, 2018 at 4:59 pm

          I get that’s your feelings, just find it strange the link to kane not scoring in August

          • Andrew February 24, 2018 at 5:06 pm

            Fans are quick to judge players. Toby does his job very well. He defends better than most in the premiership. He has a couple of poor games and some fans don’t mind selling him. We all love Harry Kane, his job is to score goals, which he does except in august . Do they think Kane should be sold because of a few games not scoring??

        • Matt February 24, 2018 at 5:09 pm

          I don’t think a lot of us are criticising him. I’d rather he stays. But we’ve managed just fine in his absence (statistically better I believe). Just as we did with Rose. He’s not indispensable.

          • Andrew February 24, 2018 at 5:15 pm

            What if we get a couple of defender injuries ,say verts and sanchez? I think we need to push forward with the tried and trusted defenders we have with Toby. Apart from verts, who is better than Toby in the Prem ? Every top manager will be after Toby ,and it will be their gain and our loss.

    Verts and Toby’s trajectories are opposite. Verts over last 18 months fit, confident and committed. Toby, injury prone less of a presence than he was. No drama if we sell him. Hasn’t been worth 150k for some time now. He needs to get real.

    Why on earth would we not renew toby’s contract? We have one of the best c b pairings in the premiership and because Toby will be 29 soon ,we want to get rid.
    Utter stupidity, if we lose Toby,other players will realize that they will NOT win anything playing for spurs. Verts is 30. next birthday so we should get rid of him as well.? What a bunch of wankers the hierarchy are at our club, fucking loser club cause of loser mentality.
