I apologised to Pochettino over leaked dossier on Spurs: Flynn

I apologised to Pochettino over leaked dossier on Spurs: Flynn

HOTSPUR took another step towards their first FA Cup final appearance since 1991 after easing past fearless Sky Bet League Two outfit, Newport County, in a fairly routine fourth-round replay at Wembley Stadium.

It is down to Tottenham from here on, especially after Lamela scored their second 34 minutes into the first half.

Spurs had complete control of the first half and the lively Heung-Min Son - the only survivor from the 1-1 draw at Anfield - had three good efforts in search of a third goal before the interval.

A Wembley replay is fantastic news for Newport's accountants, less so for Spurs who could have done without the extra fixture in the week of a north London derby.

"People would think that there's more money in football than tattooing but that's for players in the Championship and above", he says.

Spurs are unbeaten since the turn of the year, although they have drawn as many games that they have won - four each.

The preparation of such documents is surely commonplace up and down the English leagues, but it is interesting to observe a lower league sides' approach to one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League.

"We have a very good team and we need everyone fit to fight for places".

In addition to Frasier , Mahoney also appeared on Cheers, Becker, ER , Burn Notice, In Treatment , and Hot in Cleveland . In Chicago, Mahoney was a longtime and beloved ensemble member of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre.

Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino made 10 changes to team that played out a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at the weekend. To be fair, as surprising as his decision may seem, he played no part in the original tie, so there are no guarantees he would have been selected to face Mauricio Pochettino's men regardless.

"It is true that it is the FA Cup, it is against Newport of League Two, but always it is important to build your confidence again and believe that you can compete for a place in the starting XI". Never it's easy to come back and perform as he was before.

Newport's goalkeeper Joe Day sits on the pitch after Serge Aurier's cross was diverted into the net by Newport's Dan Butler.

Then, without it looking likely, Spurs took the lead on 26 minutes.

Pochettino was also able to bring off Son after just an hour, and even though Eriksen and Alli were brought on, it was with the game already safe to keep their legs fresh without stretching too far.

Dele Alli doesn't track back when he loses possession.

The 29-year-old Wotton-under-Edge native signed for Newport County in 2016 from AFC Wimbledon, and after making 16 league appearances this campaign, he waves goodbye to Wales to pursue a career in tattoo artistry.
