The announcement that Mauricio Pochettino has verbally agreed a new five-year contract with Tottenham will add to the belief that there are exciting times ahead at White Hart Lane, writes Adam Bate. Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary . Deal agreed Mauricio Pochettino has verbally agreed a new five-year contract Its been quite a ride for Tottenham supporters this season and its been a source of pride too. Pride in the emergence of Dele Alli as the most exciting young player in the Premier League and pride in the thought that striker Harry Kane is one of their own as well.However, theres also a sense that Spurs fans are fully aware of what the recent buzz has been built on. Its a 44-year-old Argentine from the small agricultural town of Murphy who is the law at the Lane. So talk of a new five-year deal for Mauricio Pochettino is huge news. Mauricio Pochettino explains why hes extending his contract at Tottenham Of course, Pochettinos contract already commits him to the club until 2019. But with the man himself having set hares running by mentioning long-term ambitions to return to Paris Saint-Germain, and reports of admirers in Manchester Uniteds boardroom, the fear was there.Such is the nature of success. And is it any wonder he has his supporters? Pochettinos Tottenham are impossible to ignore. Leicester might be the fairy-tale but perhaps Spurs are a weightier tome - the one their rivals will really have to wrestle with over the rest of the decade. Pochettino claims his PSG comments were blown out of proportion They have the best young talent - with an average age of under 25 - and a style of play that excites. While Leicesters success is built on a system that others will not replicate, Tottenhams trick is that others cannot replicate it.Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores described Tottenham as like animals in their tenacity and Stoke manager Mark Hughes said they were quicker to everything on the recent trip to the Britannia Stadium. Its hunger thats not been seen at White Hart Lane in many years. Pochettino has changed Tottenhams style of play The intensity of the training is well documented. Danny Rose has called it an enjoyable kind of suffering but once on the pitch its the opposition in pain. The distance covered stats certainly illustrate the physical effort that goes into their work.No team in the Premier League had made as many sprints this season, while Spurs have also outrun their opponents in 30 of their 35 matches. In total, theyve run more than 163 kilometres further than the opposition. Its useful for any team but when fused with such quality its deadly. Tottenham stats under Pochettino so far this season in the Premier League By most metrics, Tottenham have the best defence in the league having conceded the fewest goals and shots on target. At the other end, theyve created the most chances, had the most shots and are one shy of having scored the most goals. Its a team in harmony.Just four points are required from the final three games for Tottenhams best ever Premier League points tally. The only disappointment is that its unlikely to be enough to deliver the title too. And yet, Leicesters year might yet morph into Tottenhams time. What hes created here is something very special. Everything is there for Tottenham. Jamie Carragher The more I watch them, the more I think this chance might come again, Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports. I was expecting Spurs to go back to being challenging for top four, but I think in terms of years to come, this is going to be a side thats challenging for the title.Such is life as a Spurs supporter that thoughts will inevitably turn to what might derail these hopes. Theres an obvious answer. For while players come and go, creating a culture of success is trickier. We have a winning mentality, said Pochettino recently. It needs to stay. He needs to stay. Sometimes when you pick a man of the match for Spurs, it could be five or six of them because its all about the team, added Carragher. The man who should get most credit is the manager, because what hes created here is something very special. Everything is there for Tottenham.Everything is there and now it seems the thing that matters most is there to stay too. Pochettino and the culture hes brought has made a commitment to the club, lifting spirits after the disappointing draw with West Brom. Today is a good moment to communicate that we have a verbal agreement, he said on Friday. Tottenham have unbelievable potential. Mauricio Pochettino Its for many reasons. Tottenham have unbelievable potential. I think after two years here weve created a great group here. We have young players with the potential to get to the top. The staff and supporters are unbelievable. I think theres massive potential. Why not stay here?Why not, indeed. For Pochettinos decision sends a message. If one of the most highly-rated young managers around believes in this project then theres every reason that his highly rated young players should do too. One title race might look lost but, under Pochettino, Tottenhams race is far from run.

MIAMI -- Derek Dietrich won the game and lost his shirt.The pinch-hitters game-ending RBI triple with two out in the ninth inning helped the Miami Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 Sunday for split of their four-game series.The Marlins celebration began as Dietrich rounded third. Teammates doused him with water and then tore off his jersey.I cant say I havent walked around with my shirt off before, Dietrich said. It was a little uncomfortable, but it was a fun moment.And what shape is the shirt in?Its gone, he said. Its probably in half.The score was tied with two out in the ninth when Adeiny Hechavarria -- who had made a costly throwing error earlier -- singled off Matt Bowman (1-3). Dietrich then hit a drive into the left-field gap, and center fielder Tommy Phams try at a sliding backhanded catch failed, allowing Hechavarria to score without a play.Pham said he got his glove on the ball but didnt go after it full bore because left fielder Jeremy Hazelbaker was also in pursuit.I couldnt dive, because if Id have dove, Id have dove right into him, Pham said.

Diaz, who is hitting .312 with 14 homers, is to undergo further examinations Monday.Carlos Martinez hit Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton in the bottom of the first. There were no subsequent incidents, but Cashner took a postgame jab at the Cardinals.I kind of thought they hit (Giancarlo) on purpose, Cashner said. Thats kind of the Cardinal way.Cashner, who has a history of similar episodes with the Cardinals, noted he hit Diaz with an 0-2 pitch.Its never a spot where I want to hit a guy, he said.Cashner was in line for the victory until the Cardinals made it 4-all with two runs in the eighth off Fernando Roodney, and the tying run scored on an ugly throwing error by shortstop Hechavarria. Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Blue. hat was one that we fought hard to get back into, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. It was a shame to let it go.Miami bounced back thanks to Dietrich, who said his walk-off hit was the first of his career. He stepped to the plate in a 4-for-50 slump while adjusting to a part-time role with the return Thursday of second baseman Dee Gordon from an 80-game suspension.Dietrich said he has no complaints about the demotion.Nothing changes for me, he said. Im always ready and Im expecting to help every day.SUZUKI UPDATEMiamis Ichiro Suzuki popped out as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and remained at 2,998 career hits. Suzuki went 2 for 17 on the Marlins homestand while starting just twice.Hes swinging at some balls out of the strike zone, which is a little bit not like him, manager Don Mattingly said.
