Tottenham great Cliff Jones is home and feeling much better after being taken ill before his former club’s win against Arsenal at Wembley.

Press Association Sport report that former Spurs and Wales winger Jones, 83, was treated by medical staff after feeling unwell before kick-off in Saturday’s 1-0 triumph for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Jones posted on Twitter: “Back home and feeling much better. Many thanks to @SpursOfficial and the Wembley medical team for their excellent care & attention.

“Thanks for all your messages and well done to the lads, the win was better than any medicine!!”

Tottenham had earlier wished Jones a quick recovery and said on Twitter: “Everyone at the club wishes Cliff Jones a speedy recovery after he was taken ill before today’s game.

“We are in contact with Cliff and his family as he recovers at home.”

Jones scored 135 goals in 318 appearances for Tottenham between 1958-68 and played a key role in their double-winning side during the 1960/61 season.

The Wales international made 59 appearances for his country and also had spells at first club Swansea and Fulham.

Harry Kane’s 32nd goal of the season secured Tottenham a 1-0 win in the north London derby, lifting them up to third place in the Premier League standings.

    Juve are a tight unit at the back, Khedira & Pjanic are hot and cold in midfield at the moment but we cannot allow them to dominate, Bernadeschi, Higuain and even Costa will ask questions of our resolute defence. Poch will set up defensively on Tuesday night (7:45 Allianz Live BT Sport 2) expect Aurier with Toby and Victor likely starters, i’d take a 1-1 first leg result all day long.

    • Still Nil Nil February 11, 2018 at 10:38 am

    • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 9:54 am

      IMO Salah’s second wizardry goal from a tight angle against Spurs will take some beating!

      • NickTheYid February 11, 2018 at 10:03 am

        Wasn’t even the best goal in that game.

      • Still Nil Nil February 11, 2018 at 10:06 am

        Ffs DD, can we stop beating on our own team?
        7 points from 3 tough games (should’ve been 9) Wanyamas goal was scintillating in that game, and as good as salads goal was there are better out there whether by pure execution or build up play.
        But spurs are either inept or tactically naive with a coach who hasn’t won anything and that spurs have gone from 30 years of awesomeness prior to poch arriving to be downright dog shit.

        Give them some fucking recognition for year on year being actually consistent in a positive manner rather than consistently nondescript.

        Levy is obviously holding them back but as a team and squad with limited resources spurs have been ducking awesome for 3 seasons.

        And that’s withokaying 38 away league games this season.

        Give them a fucking break.

        And recognise this is as good a spurs squad as they’ve had in a generation.

        • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 10:12 am

          Nilly why get agitated? Have I criticized the teams performances. I simply remarked on what I considered to be the best individual goal of season to date and that was Salah’s. Kane was great but Salah’s was better. For build up play and execution I enjoyed Son’s clinical finish at home to Liverpool.

          • Still Nil Nil February 11, 2018 at 10:18 am

            I’m getting fucked off with spurs being not as good as others whether by the media or by our own support,
            Salads goal was a good goal and at the time I said it was a maradona / Messi type goal.
            But ffs spurs either individually or as a collective have scored better.
            So rather than focus on fucking woolwich or other clubs can spurs be given some fucking credit?

            That’s not to say there are no faults there or room for improvement, of course there are, but they’re our club and we should defend our club.
            Especially when they’re actually doing remarkably well within the constraints the team has.

            As daft as it might sound, I actually think spurs are good enough to with the CL this season with a fully fit on form squad, and with done luck, they’re as good as virtually anybody still in it.

            So yes I don’t often vent my spleen but it’s pushing me off how some sections are belittling our own club.

            By all means recognise others abilities but they in my opinion can just fuck right off.

            Wanyama’s goal was the pick of the bunch in that Liverpool game.

            Whatever you’ve taken this morning I suggest you regurgitate it.

        • NickTheYid February 11, 2018 at 10:14 am

          Well said Nilly, considering the lack of investment this team has been very consistent and overachieved in the league in my opinion plus the players leave everything on the pitch, as a fan that’s all I ask of them, although a cup would be nice.

          • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 10:18 am

            What do you mean lack of investment? balanced against some poor signings squandering monies on flops namely Sissoko, Auria, Nocluedo, Njie et al should be taken into consideration.

      • Caspurs♿️ February 11, 2018 at 10:10 am

      • Freund or Foe. , February 11, 2018 at 10:27 am

        Salah’s goal was ok, but he had help from us. Verts literally shepherded him towards our goal, leaving enough space for Mo and a double decker bus to get through, and Hugo didn’t cover himself in glory either.

        • Caspurs♿️ February 11, 2018 at 10:38 am

          I’m glad you noticed that, I did to.

  • Lilywhite without the II February 11, 2018 at 9:23 am

    We do seem to manage our energy levels better since December. If we can hold teams off that press like made in the first half we seem to have more left in the tank and play better in the 2nd….

  • East Stand February 11, 2018 at 9:23 am

    A lot being made of Toby’s non inclusion on the bench, we dominated and he gets a question like that about a player that has been out for three months? Perhaps he gets fed up with these constant little press agendas?

    • Lilywhite without the II February 11, 2018 at 9:26 am

      It was odd he wasn’t on the bench but maybe he wanted to rest him and not risk injury on a big game…

      • Tom Sherwood February 11, 2018 at 10:02 am

        Once he signs that contract he’ll be back on the bench pronto !

    • legendary greavesy February 11, 2018 at 9:31 am

      If you or me were to be question on every decision we made then we probably would

    • Accy February 11, 2018 at 9:50 am

      I think he gets pissed off with the press generally and was displaying a certain degree of “please fuck off and talk about the win you c*nting journo…”

      I fully expect us to change to a back 3 against Juve. Maybe I’ll be wrong but he needs another tactical shift to win this CL game.

  • Lilywhite without the II February 11, 2018 at 9:21 am

    Eriksen to Liverpool, seriously, who makes this shit up……news now needs a “fuck off” filter…

    • East Stand February 11, 2018 at 9:23 am

      Laughable…

  • legendary greavesy February 11, 2018 at 9:20 am

    That 25mins after half time was some of the most dominant and positive football that’s come out of this current team, it oozed confidence, trouble was those chances went begging so we gave them a sniff later in the game which thankfully laxette fluffed, we can say if we did this or did that but that’s not what happened so we have to say we got to do this to be better then we can say we are a great side and I believe this side will win more than one illustrious TROPHY

  • Lilywhite without the II February 11, 2018 at 9:14 am

    The system doesnt work on every team
    We were missing a plan B
    Poch is only intetested in Plan A
    Capiche?

    Ron, I’m surprised you’re going in for Poch after this one.
    I’ve slept on it and I think these are probably our golden times.
    With City and Yanited building their empires with open cheque books, they’ll probably rule the roost for years to come. There is no one out there who would do a better job under the net spend conditions that Poch operates under. 3 seasons legitimately challenging in the top 4 like this. Someone would offer up Ancelotti, but he’d not come to operate without an open chequebook either. Poch desperately needs a trophy to his name but these are the golden times for us and we will go backwards once he leaves.

    • East Stand February 11, 2018 at 8:53 am

      There was a ‘veteran’ fan of Ron’s vintage on a phone in even before the game and he reckons this side is the best he’s seen since the Double team. He’s been going since then.

      Spurs have been my team since childhood, although the Double was well before my time I’ve never seen a Spurs team quite this good before….

      • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 9:08 am

        Nice to Cliff Jones who I had the priviledge play at WHL in the 60’s is feeling better. He was a fine winger in his day. Talking is one thing, doing it is quite another but if any PL side deserves to win a trophy for breaking into the top 4 it’s Spurs. We have been on the cusp for a while now. Lets win a trophy and enjoy it whilst it lasts.

      • Tom Sherwood February 11, 2018 at 10:09 am

        The strength in depth of our bench not to mention although i just did the players beyond must be a first. Pity Sanchez mistake at the end, i thought he along with Verts and Davies had a great game, doubt i’ve ever seen a Spurs defensive line as disciplined.

  • Camus February 11, 2018 at 8:08 am

    Well done Poch and the lads!!
    7 points from 9 in these last 3 tough PL fixtures is a cracking return!

    In less positive news, I’ve seen a clip of a Poch being quizzed on why Toby wasn’t in the squad.
    His response was way over-sensitive about it. He could easily have used some patter about 3 months being a long time off, and bringing him back in gently, but instead he went all incredulous about it. No smoke without fire, journos will assume.
    P’raps he’s off in the summer à la Walker 😕

    • baz February 11, 2018 at 8:23 am

      I thought the same thing when I watched that press conference yesterday.
      It was a strange reaction from somebody who is usually so composed.

        Levy won’t pay Toby the going rate….

  • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 2:31 am

    Spurs make top four statement
    “Tottenham were slow to get into their stride in a first 45 minutes characterised by Arsenal’s defensive discipline – but once they moved through the gears the Gunners simply could not live with them. It was only the outstanding Cech that stood between Arsenal and a second-half rout as Spurs simply swamped their opponents after the break with a formidable display of power, pace and sheer intensity ….

      I think he workrd hard within the system though

    • Threelagoon February 11, 2018 at 5:14 am

      I was impressed with his chasing and harrying. Not many flair players are willing to do that.

        Admittedly I would not have him in the trenches but credit where it’s due Eriksen was chasing around all afternoon.

  • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 2:11 am

    Not sure what Wanyama contributed when he came on. Very little me thinks.

        • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 2:50 am

          Agreed but it looks like Dier has cemented his position in that role?

          • Gus February 11, 2018 at 2:57 am

            By default this season. There are enough games for both of them to contribute. And Victor coming back allows Moussa to get rest days. Loch would be wise to use the opportunity

    • Aussie in Switzerland February 11, 2018 at 6:39 am

      Best part was that his arrival means Dier got hooked.

        By his admission Dembele should score more goals but oddly fails to register!

  • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 2:00 am

    Late to the party, tasting a sweet win over our archest rivals the margin of victory could and should have been deservedly won by a bigger margin had we not squandered numerous presentable chances which could have proved costly had Lucozade not missed a sitter in a tense finish.

    • David Dillenberg February 11, 2018 at 2:02 am

      IMO no reason for Poch not replacing Son with Moura.

      • SeattleSpursGuy February 11, 2018 at 2:03 am

    Two huge performances and made Liverpool look second best at Anfield in between.

    Our net sped is supposed to be three times smaller than Woolwich’s.

        Do you have any examples of a manager with this ‘Plan B’ you speak of?

        Klopp, Wenger, Maureen, I don’t see any of them having more than one way and Pep has so many quality players that he only needs to phart and they win…

        • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 11, 2018 at 1:34 am

          Poch system wotked today but as Ive mentioned here and many times his system doesnt work on every team especially ones that dont come at us.
          He has no plan B. Maybe Moura will be a plan B or maybe he wants Moura just to fit in.
          Again,capiche?

          • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 11, 2018 at 1:40 am

            Our defence is very strong. Poch built it that way. We still lack creativity so our game works at certain times and others it doesnt.
            Every team has a different dynamic and Pep I know develops to deal with all situations.
            That makes him and his team creative.

            • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 11, 2018 at 1:42 am

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 11, 2018 at 1:11 am

    Cliff Jones was a great cog in tbe double teams wheel. His pace,control,dribbling ability and magic (the best bicycle kick in England at the time..and maybe the first (not sure)

  • East Stand February 11, 2018 at 1:09 am

    Pleased to hear Cliff Jones is doing ok after the scare. One of the Spurs family.

  • Gus February 11, 2018 at 12:55 am

    Funny how Arsene was bitching about diving players when his new boy Micky was the worst diver on the park

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 February 11, 2018 at 1:00 am

      Arsenal should bitch himself out in front of a mirror.

      • Gus February 11, 2018 at 1:08 am

        The anguish and agony he showed when Lacazette muffed his chance at the death was delicious

  • legendary greavesy February 11, 2018 at 12:47 am

    Watched juve v Firentino on Friday they basically wore them down,what they are very good at is using all the tricks to stifle their opponents, Poch has big decisions on team selection but I agree Lamela should start as I think Son could be a far more productive player as an impact sub if MD plays like he did against the Gooners then his battle with Pjanic could be where the game will be controlled. We certainly have to be vigilant to Higuaín,i don’t think he touched the ball in the 1st half but he made 2 great runs in 2nd half and he is a world class finisher. We all wanted to be part of the big boys so cant wait for it to start and stay calm ??? COYS

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 11, 2018 at 1:15 am

  • Matt February 11, 2018 at 12:11 am

    Catching up on today. Saw the goal. Does anyone still seriously think Danny “ambitious and available 1 game in 3” Rose is as good as Davies? Will watch full match tomorrow so apologies if Davies was sh£t for the rest of the same:

    • Hartley™ February 11, 2018 at 12:27 am

      Davies and Trippier are first choice now.

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 February 11, 2018 at 12:44 am

      Davies was excellent. Also he and Jan understand each other well.

      • Gus February 11, 2018 at 12:53 am

        Harry could have easily got 3, Lamela and Del boy missed a gilt edge chance each, we should have won by more. I’m happy with the win because Lacazette should have won a point for L’Arse

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 11, 2018 at 1:15 am

        Yes both played well snd work eell together

  • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:45 pm

    Kaneinho needs to respond to Aguero by banging in a couple of hattricks against Palace and Huddersfield, let everyone know who this season’s Golden Boot belongs to.

  • Hartley™ February 10, 2018 at 11:39 pm

    Where’s silly Dilly tonight?

    • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:41 pm

      Arsenal lost.

      • Hartley™ February 10, 2018 at 11:47 pm

        Yes they did.

        • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:50 pm

          Their supporters are having to face up to the cold reality tonight that their season is over.

  • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:25 pm

    We’re going to Italy and winning handsomely on Tuesday. Return game will be a formality.

    Lamela to score a hat trick.

  • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:23 pm

    So pleasing to watch again Lacazette fucking up. His confidence should be completely shot now, if it wasn’t before.

    We were let off, could have been a gut wrencher if those knobs had stolen a point.

  • Hartley™ February 10, 2018 at 11:19 pm

    Cliff Jones is invincible.

    • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:21 pm

      Sadly never saw him play, but my elders told me he was a special player, full of drive and determination.

      • Hartley™ February 10, 2018 at 11:38 pm

        He still is, the bloke is amazing. Somewhere on the farm I have his old banner from above his butchers shop which he opened after retiring from playing. Navy blue background and in capital lilywhite letters reads ‘CLIFF JONES THE BUTCHER’.
        Ron will tell you that as a player he was anything but.

        • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:40 pm

          What a great thing to own. That’s a real heirloom.

          • Hartley™ February 10, 2018 at 11:45 pm

            It’s at least twenty five foot long and weighs a ton as it’s made out of canvas but it’s Spurs history and no one else has one.

            • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:47 pm

              Not even Cliff Jones. 😆

  • Mattspurs February 10, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Couldn’t agree more with the comments on Son on the previous posts – glad Davies couldn’t bear to pass it to him again and just crossed himself instead.
    Lamela should be starting on Tuesday

    • Harry Hotspur February 10, 2018 at 11:49 pm

      Yay – someone else who understood what they were watching. Lamela has to start against Juve. Poch hasn’t the wit to use subs effectively so on the bench is no good.

      • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 11:53 pm

        And Lamela speaks the language, so can insult the opposition fluently.

      • Hartley™ February 11, 2018 at 12:33 am

        He was shit today. Wasted two great opportunities and got into a fight with a tramp.
        I prefer him injured.

    Also the cabbage patch that is twickenham. Still on my way back. Spurs beat Arse and England beat Wales. A good day. I’ll be reading the last 4 blogs, watching MOTD and full match in that order. Happy days.
