Pochettino expects Tottenham to show killer instinct

Mauricio Pochettino has called on
Tottenham Hotspur to show a more ruthless touch as they look to keep
their Premier League title hopes alive with a win against West Bromwich
Albion on Saturday.

Pochettino admitted Tottenham, who lost to Arsenal last
weekend and then won at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, have found it
difficult to see off supposedly inferior opposition at Wembley this
season.

Tottenham dropped points early on in home draws with Burnley
and Swansea and could only record 1-0 successes at the national
stadium, their temporary home this term, against Bournemouth and Crystal
Palace in recent weeks.

Now Albion, who sacked manager Tony Pulis following a run of
just two wins in 21 Premier League games, will surely try to frustrate
the hosts once again.

“It’s true we’ve struggled a little bit with teams that come to Wembley and play deeper,” Pochettino said.

“We need to improve our positional game in (the) last third
in the opposition half. Sometimes we need show more patience to build
our options to create chances.”

Albion, under the caretaker charge of Gary Megson, had proved to be problematic opponents for Tottenham in the past.

Spurs won this fixture 4-0 last season but the nine games before that resulted in just two Spurs victories, plus six draws.

Albion had been a physical unit under Pulis and Pochettino is not expecting anything different now Megson is picking the team.

“We are going to be ready to fight, because it’s a team that loves to play counter attack,” he said.

“They work very hard on set-pieces, they’re very dangerous.
We need to work hard to avoid these situations and give them the option
to create chances.

“We need to aggressive with and without the ball. We need to play the game in a way that can benefit our interests.”

Pulis’ departure delighted a majority of West Brom
supporters who had become fed up with his route-one style of play, but
it did not end the drama at The Hawthorns.

Megson, who returned to the club in the summer as Pulis’s
assistant, told assistant head coach Ben Garner to stay away from
training due to a clash of philosophies and neither man appears likely
to stay once a new boss is appointed.

“No one is happy about the situation we’re in,” Megson said.
“Tony’s done a fantastic job here and other clubs he’s been at in the
past and he’s a friend of mine.

“The chairman spoke to me and told me what had happened with Tony.

“He asked would I take over in the interim period, it’s in my contract, I do what I’m told, which is what I’m doing.

“I’ve never asked how long, I’ve never asked what they’re doing. All I’m going to do is keep going until I’m told otherwise.

“We’ve still got the sadness of Tony not being here, but the club has got to be kept going.”

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
