Sky Sports pundit shares his 'biggest worry' for Tottenham; raves about Spurs key figure - originally posted on Sportslens.com Popular Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has showered praise on Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino saying the Argentine is doing a phenomenal work.

Key man ready to continue at Chelsea if the club hierarchy can make this happen - originally posted on Sportslens.com Antonio Conte has been linked with a move away from Chelsea in the summer. Apparently, the Italian has had disagreements with the Chelsea hierarchy and therefore the two parties could part ways at the end of this season. Speaking to the Telegraph, Conte has now revealed that he is open to staying at the club but the board will have to sort out their differences with him. He said: “In 14 years, Chelsea have changed coach 10 times, so they do have a tendency to chop and change here. The media also plays on this habit the moment there are negative results. They were already writing headlines about my dismissal after the opening game against Burnley. It’s no proble...

HUD is failing to manage key public housing program, government watchdog finds

Politics
Over the past 20 years, dozens of housing authorities across the country have been allowed to skirt federal regulations and were given extra discretion in how they spend millions in federal funds through an experimental low-income housing program.  Under the watchful eye of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), 39 housing authorities created policies that limited the time low-income tenants could live in a public housing complex, established work requirements, or set higher rents through a program called Moving to Work Demonstration (MTW). However, HUD hasn’t been properly monitoring the policies and regulations, and those 39 agencies have failed to distribute over $800 million in federal housing vouchers to their tenants and served fewer families than required, according

Roundup: Spurs hoping to trigger attacker's clause; Club confident of keeping key star - originally posted on Sportslens.com Tottenham are looking to keep their Argentine winger Erik Lamela at the club for another season. The 25-year old’s deal expires in the summer of 2019 and Spurs have the option to trigger a one-year extension. Lamela has struggled to hold down a regular starting berth since his arrival in 2013. The former Roma star’s time at the club has been plagued with injuries. However, the South American was quite impressive against Juventus in the last game and Pochettino is keen on keeping him at the club for now. The extension makes a lot of sense even if the Londoners decide to move him on in the summer. Lamela will fetch a better price after the extension. Mean...
