Once again Spurs were back to their wasteful ways in front of goal showing a lack of clinical finishing, finishing that makes the difference between winning game and dropping points.
Video highlights of the goals from the Tottenham v Schalke game plus a look at a few players, some who advanced their claims, some who did not.
For Pochettino it's out with the old system and in with anew one, the one touch football could cause problems and make us an enjoyable team to watch. Plenty of Sunday football will presumably mean plenty of TV games for fans who cant make it to White Hart Lane.
Right let's get into the Tottenham News Shorts - Issue 49 a brief one that concerns recent news about Lewis Holtby, Player tweets and Benoit Assou-Ekotto.

Lewis Holtby produced another energetic display and seems to be really enjoying the system Mauricio Pochettino has introduced at White Hart Lane.
He was lucky not to see a straight red card, nobody could have complained had the ref showed one, that is something he will have to control this season, tackles like that will cost us points. He spoke to Spurs official after the game.
"It was a very good test. We could’ve scored a couple more. Very pleased with the result and happy to get another run out. I really enjoyed playing today against my old team Schalke. They came here with a young team, a very good team.
"We’re burning for this game [West Ham] and burning for three points."

Con on u spurs💥 com on ade👀👊 lol
💥 = Collision symbol
👊 = Fisted hand sign
What do we read into Benny's collision symbol? Why put it there if he is not on a collision course with the club? Are there troubles behind the scenes with Benny?
Last summer Tottenham were trying to sell Benny but he failed medicals in France leaving us with a player we couldn't sell. A loan move to QPR in the Championship transpired and we will have been subsidising his wages. The spell was not a success.
A World Cup, a headbutt of a team mate and not a single whisper of any interest in him at all this summer. He has one year of his contract to go, hasn't figured in any pre-season and with two left-backs has little chance of even featuring in the Premier League squad, especially if we sign any non-home grown players, which we look likely to do.
He looks to have no future, I haven't seen him in any training pictures but then I haven't been studying them all, no doubt someone has and can tell us.
But at the moment it seems we are still paying the wages for a player we won't be using and doesn't appear to be going anywhere.
