What the Lamelas did at Xmas, and why Sherwood might have words

Tottenham's Argentine winger and his family seemed to have a great time over Christmas, but there may be a warning from the club about some family tweets.

After a difficult first few months in England, it is understandable that young Tottenham winger Erik Lamela has been having fun over the festive period after his family came to stay with him.

And, what's more, it looks like teammate Sandro's house was where the action was.

Tweets emerged Wednesday from Erik's brother Brian, showing the brothers' parents singing karaoke at the Brazilian's home. The man nicknamed the Beast has a history of singing and playing guitar over the years and would have clearly enjoyed hosting his fellow South American's on Christmas day. What's more, it's a great show of team bonding and will only endear Sandro to Tottenham fans even more.

However, one concern for newly appointed Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood is the fact that Brian Lamela has been disclosing that his brother is in the side for today's match.

Sherwood may have to have a quiet word with Tottenham's record signing to ensure this doesn't happen again, but it's likely no-one will be in too much trouble - it is doubtful Keith Downing, WBA's caretaker boss, is checking Twitter for team news after midnight on Christmas Day anyway.

Former Roma winger Lamela will be hoping he can impress for Tottenham in today's match against the Baggies, with his family sure to be in the stands at White Hart Lane to cheer him on.
