Our Tottenham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to take a step closer to Mauricio Pochettino’s first piece of silverware, in the shape of the FA Cup.
Spurs will be hoping to overcome a potential cup upset against lowly Newport County with relative ease today. Pochettino may afford the luxury of a little squad rotation, although he will not want to take the opposition too lightly say our regulars, after seeing what happened to Leeds United in the last round.
Indeed, an away day in the cup, against a lower league team as always been the making for the story of the round, and to really light the magic of the FA Cup.
With that in mind, Pochettino would be foolish not to try to put Newport away early doors and, by bringing in some fringe players who have got something to prove, may be a shrewd move by the Argentine coach.
Having said that, our landlord takes a look at two players he has in mind to get some much needed minutes under their belts…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
