The Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a video from their club, where Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen took on Mauricio Pochettino and his assistant, Jesus Perez in the Sky Ocean Rescue Challenge. The challenge consisted of knocking plastic bottles off of the net from the penalty spot and the Spurs gaffer was the only one to register a point.

After watching the video, the Spurs fans propping our bar up are starting to appreciate just how good their Argentine gaffer is with his feet. The 46-year-old knocked two bottles down on his way to winning the challenge 2-0 against two of his best players in Kane and Eriksen. Pochettino was the last to take his turn and with the scores posied at 0-0, Poch stepped up and scored two points with both his left and right foot.
Whilst the challenge was all fun and games, the cause behind it is much bigger. Sky and the Premier League have teamed up to reduce the use of plastic used as the oceans continue to be polluted with excess plastic every year. Tottenham Hotspur are leading the charge for the Premier League as they’ve promised to stop using all single-use plastics in their new stadia, such as plastic knives and forks. Fans can read learn more about the partnership when Spurs host Watford in the Premier League tonight.

FIFA should really look into bringing some revolutionary rules like allowing the Team's Manager for a set piece.
