    'Spurs Scrape Through'

    'Spurs Scrape Through'

    Host Richard Cracknell was joined by Lee McQueen, Jamie from Daily Hotspur and Chris Cowlin as Last Word On Spurs returned.

    Heung-Min Son, Gareth Bale and Dele Alli papered over a poor Spurs performance as a 3-3 draw at LASK ensured Jose Mourinho's side qualified for the Europa League last 32.

    Spurs were outplayed in the first half on a freezing night in Linz and trailed to Peter Michorl's long-range effort which squirmed under Joe Hart (42). But the visitors were gifted an equaliser when Andres Andrade handled Tanguy Ndombele's shot and Bale beat Alexander Schlager from the penalty spot (45+2).

    After the break, Spurs barely improved but, needing only a point to qualify, found another goal to afford them some breathing space as Son ran through to score after good work from Ndombele (56).

    Bale should have put the result beyond doubt six minutes later with the goal at his mercy, but attempted to square for Son and missed his team-mate altogether. Hart was then again at fault to allow Johannes Eggestein to level from outside the box (84).

    LASK had themselves to blame for losing another foothold within minutes, however, with substitute Steven Bergwijn brought to ground in the box by Philipp Wiesinger. Alli set himself to cheekily chip Schlager from 12 yards and restore Spurs' lead, with the sort of swagger the rest of their performance had been severely lacking.

    There was still time for more drama in added time as another substitute, Mamoudou Karamoko, levelled with another effort from distance which this time left Hart with no chance. It was not enough to keep LASK's hopes alive, as their head-to-head record against Spurs saw them eliminated while their visitors progressed.

    'A New Mentality'

    'A New Mentality'

    Host Richard Cracknell was joined by Lee McQueen, Jamie Brown from the Daily Hotspur and Antony Costa on this edition of the Last Word On Spurs.

    Tottenham returned to the top of the Premier League despite being held by Chelsea in a highly-competitive yet goalless London stalemate.

    The eagerly-anticipated fixture between two teams in excellent form failed to produce a goal as both sides cancelled each other out at Stamford Bridge. Edouard Mendy kept out Serge Aurier's ferocious strike while Steven Bergwijn scooped another Spurs chance over the bar.

    Chelsea were looking to celebrate Roman Abramovich's 1,000th game as club owner with victory over a Spurs team managed by their former boss Jose Mourinho. The Blues struggled to carve out clear-cut chances although Hugo Lloris produced a great late save to deny Mason Mount.

    Spurs, replaced at the top by Liverpool on Saturday, return to the summit, level on 21 points with the Reds but with a superior goal difference. Chelsea are two points behind in third spot.

    'Four-Midable Spurs'

    'Four-Midable Spurs'

    Host Richard Cracknell is joined by Lee McQueen, Jamie from Daily Hotspur and Antony Costa as the Last Word On Spurs returned. Carlos Vinicius opened his Tottenham account with a double, while Harry Winks scored an amazing 56-yard fluke as Spurs cruised to a 4-0 win over Ludogorets in the Europa League.  Victory put Tottenham into second place in the standings with two games remaining, level on points with Royal Antwerp who won 2-0 away at Austrian side LASK.

    Welsh forward Gareth Bale started for Tottenham, as did out-of-favour Dele Alli, but it was Vinicius, signed on loan from Benfica as backup for Harry Kane, who took his chance to shine. The 25-year-old put Tottenham in front after 16 minutes when Alli's ball intended for Bale deflected off a Ludogorets player into the path of Vinicius who rolled in an easy finish.

    Tottenham were totally dominant and Alli was also involved in the second goal, unselfishly squaring to Vinicius after Tanguy Ndombele's shot was parried out by goalkeeper Plamen Iliev.

    Just past the hour mark Winks enlivened the second period when he received the ball from a throw-in some 50 metres out on the left and launched a shot that flew over the head of Iliev. Tottenham were not finished, though, and Vinicius teed up Lucas Moura to fire his side's fourth.

    There was still time for 16-year-old striker Dane Scarlett to come off the bench for his Spurs debut and become the club's youngest-ever player to appear for the first team. Scarlett almost capped a memorable day with a chance in stoppage time but his shot rolled across the face of goal.

    'Tottenham Hotspur - Top Of The League'

    'Tottenham Hotspur - Top Of The League'

    Host Richard Cracknell was joined by Lee McQueen, Jamie Brown from the Daily Hotspur and John Wenham from Lilywhite Rose as the Last Word On Spurs returned to discuss Tottenham Hotspur going top of the Premier League.

    Spurs went top of the Premier League after producing a display of clinical efficiency and tactical discipline to beat Manchester City.

    In the usual battle of wits between Jose Mourinho and his old adversary Pep Guardiola, the Spurs manager came out on top as his team's season gathered further momentum.

    Son Heung-min put Spurs in front after five minutes, finishing coolly from Tanguy Ndombele's pass before Manchester City had a first-half goal ruled out by VAR for a handball by Gabriel Jesus after Aymeric Laporte's finish.

    City continued to enjoy greater possession but Spurs, as you would expect from a Mourinho side, were fiercely drilled and resilient, taking their chance when it came to double their advantage and finish the game.

    It came in the 65th minute after a dream substitution from Mourinho, Giovani lo Celso beating Ederson with a low finish from another Kane pass 35 seconds after coming on for Tanguy Ndombele - the only cloud for Spurs coming with a late injury to Toby Alderweireld after an outstanding performance.

    'Andy Reid - Special'

    'Andy Reid - Special'

    Host Ricky Sacks was joined by John Wenham from Lilywhite Rose and former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Andy Reid on this Last Word On Spurs.


    Skilful midfielder Andy Reid played for Spurs between the years 2005 to 2006. After protracted negotiations, lasting for the bulk of his last season at the club, Reid completed his move from Forest to Tottenham on the last day of the January 2005 transfer window. He was joined by Michael Dawson for a combined fee of £8 million.


    Andy made his debut in a 3–1 win over Portsmouth on 5 February 2005, with Martin Jol saying "Andy Reid also did well on his debut, and you worry a bit how new players will cope with the Premiership".


    The Dublin born former player who won 29 caps for the Republic of Ireland over a ten year period, was a player who had a wand of a left foot and who was good at making key passes in games. After starting his career off at Cherry Orchard, Reid joined Nottingham Forest in 1998 where he spent seven years at before joining our beloved Spurs in the January of 2005.


    Reid made 26 league appearances for the Lilywhites before moving onto Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2006. He would also go onto play for the likes of Sunderland and Blackpool before returning to Nottingham Forest in 2011 who he finished off his career with. Now retired from playing, Reid coaches Nottingham Forest’s under 23 side as well as being the head coach of the Republic of Ireland’s under 18 side.
