Tottenham star Erik Lamela meets up with former team-mate Sandro as South American stars enjoy night out in Richmond
Spurs midfielder Erik Lamela celebrated scoring his third goal in as many games by meeting up with a former team-mate in a posh London suburb.
This is a column about managers. We have so many lurking around London that it’s hard to avoid them. Yesterday Four Four Tim decided in the pre-game show to turn a question about the absence of Luis Suarez for Liverpool this season into an opportunity to complain that his squad last season lacked “hierarchy”. As […]

The young wing-back is a top target for Arsene Wenger.
The Daily Mail claim that Arsenal are looking to bid for Batuhan Yayikci – a player apparently known as the “Turkish Gareth Bale”.
The North London club have apparently been scouting the 18-year-old for several months, and are interested in bidding £1m to bring him to the Emirates Stadium
The youngster plays for Fenerbahce, and is highly rated in his homeland, where he has been compared to Welsh wing wizard Bale.

According to the Mail, Yayikci is a turbo-speed left sided player, currently a left-back – much like Real Madrid’s ace as a youngster. Like Bale, he may move forward as his career progresses.
Information on Yayikci is scarce, but that clearly hasn’t stopped the Gunners’ legendary scouting network from picking up on the Turkish talent.
The teenager can only hope that his career follows the explosive curve that Bale’s did.
Following a tricky start at Tottenham Hotspur, the superstar fought his way into the team and was soon their key player. Nobody who saw the 25-year-old’s breakthrough game at the San Siro will ever forget it.
Before long the attacker had got his dream move to Madrid for a massive sum estimated to be around £85.3m. Arsenal will hope that this young prospect comes a little cheaper.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted concerns over Kieran Gibbs’ fitness, with the left-back a doubt for Saturday’s clash with Burnley.
The fullback limped off the pitch during the Gunners’ 2-0 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last Saturday.
And Wenger confirmed that Gibbs will be assessed on Friday to gauge his fitness ahead of the game at the Emirates.
“It is a hip problem,” the Frenchman told the club’s official website. “He [Gibbs] came off at Sunderland with 20 minutes to go. He is a doubt, but we’ll know more tomorrow.”
While Mathieu Debuchy, Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Yaya Sanogo remain long-term concerns, Wenger does not have any new injury worries.
“Apart from that, everyone should be available, he added. “Wilshere is back from suspension. We have no other injuries and no one else coming back into the squad.”
Wenger also gave an update on Serge Gnabry and Abu Diaby, saying: “They are not quite ready yet. Gnabry is closer than Diaby fitness-wise. He is a couple of weeks away.”

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has leapt to the defence of Rio Ferdinand after he was brought to book for a sexist remark made on Twitter.
The veteran defender was fined and suspended for three matches by the Football Association for yet another controversial comment he posted on the social networking site.
Ferdinand was responding on a jibe directed at him when he tweeted the term ‘sket’, which is slang for a prostitute.
The former England captain has subsequently been “severely warned as to his future conduct” by the country’s governing body, but Redknapp insists there are no issues with his conduct at Loftus Road and says the club are contemplating whether to appeal the ban.
“We’ve not seen the FA report yet so we really can’t comment. We’re not sure exactly what he’s done and what the charge is and what the reasons are behind it,” he said.
“So until we see that, I’ve not seen it, we’re not in a position to comment on it. I’ve not spoken to Phil (Rangers CEO Philip Beard), the chairman or Rio about it.
“We’ll have to sit down and see what the circumstances are (for an appeal). I don’t know much about it.”
Redknapp added: “Well he does know how to behave off the pitch, I’ve not had many footballers behave better off the pitch than Rio, on the pitch and off the pitch.
“I don’t have any problems with the way Rio conducts himself. I haven’t met many classier footballers in my time than Rio Ferdinand, he’s a top-class person. I don’t need to talk to him about it, not really.
“I don’t read Twitter, I don’t even know what it is, I wouldn’t know how to read it and it doesn’t interest me one little bit. We’re not overloaded with fit defenders, so I want Rio available for every game, that’s for sure.”
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed the impact of Fabio Borini and Lucas in the absence of first-team stars in midweek.
The duo stepped into the side on Wednesday as the Reds battled to a 2-1 win over Swansea in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup at Anfield.
And Rodgers believes his team would not have won such games after making wholesale changes to the starting line-up when he first arrived at the club.
“A couple of years ago, if we made a lot of changes we’d probably be beaten,” the Ulsterman said in his press conference ahead of a trip to Newcastle.
“The other night we made nine changes and managed to come away with the win. We strengthened the squad because of situations like this.
“It’s exciting, and we’re looking forward to the Newcastle game and to playing stretches like this.”
Borini might not have had the chances he would have hoped for following the injury to Daniel Sturridge in August, but Rodgers hailed his impact against Swansea in particular.
“Daniel Sturridge being out has been a big miss for us, but sometimes it can give opportunities to others,” he added.
“The other night, Fabio Borini was outstanding. He made a perfect cross at the end and worked hard and was lively all night.
“Lucas, too, who hasn’t seen much action this year, was excellent alongside Jordan Henderson.”
Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino revealed he lost his temper with Erik Lamela at half time in Wednesday’s clash against Brighton… because he took too long in the toilet.
Tottenham entered October on the back of a heartening 1-1 draw away to Arsenal. A 1-0 win over Southampton in the first match of the month seemed to indicate real progress, but since the international break, they appear to have gone backwards.
What Should We Really Be Targeting?Vitalfootball: Spurs: 30/10/2014 15:46:00Jan Vertonghen in the light of our win over Brighton has suggested that winning the League Cup could solve a lot of the confidence issues within the club.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is sweating over the fitness of striker Diafra Sakho, who is a doubt for the trip to Stoke with a shoulder injury.
The Senegal international has made a terrific start to his debut season in east London, scoring six goals in seven appearances for his new club.
And Allardyce admitted concerns over Sakho’s fitness and confirmed the 24-year-old will face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday’s match at the Britannia Stadium.
“Sakho is touch and go for Saturday,” Allardyce told the media in his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
“We will see what he’s like tomorrow and make a decision from there.”
There was some good news for the Hammers, though, with Allardyce revealing that duo James Tomkins and Matt Jarvis are in line for returns, while Andy Carroll is nearing full fitness.
“James Tomkins is back and Matt Jarvis is back in the squad,” he added. “The others we are patiently waiting for.
“Andy has to go through what for him is the final part of a pre-season after recovery, and ease himself slowly into games.”
