Spurs 2 Manchester United 1, 2017 – Jack Pitt-Brooke
On this week’s episode of Greatest Games, Jack Pitt-Brooke joins Jonathan Wilson and Marcus Speller to discuss the final home game to be played at the old White Hart Lane.
As another high-flying season for Pochettino’s Spurs began to wrap up, a performance that epitomised the Argentine manager’s reign over the club spoiled the fans on an emotional day in North London. Jack, Jonathan and Marcus ponder over just how Pochettino could make Spurs purr, what it is that makes Harry Kane so good, how the opposition’s goalscorer that day appears in Jonathan’s dreams and much more.
