That was embarrassing on every level, Bayern are a good side but we made them look like European Champions, when in fact they are rebuilding.For 15 minutes we were excellent and should have been 2/3 up but all at once Spurs stopped pressing hard and high, fell back and gave the onus to Bayern .
What did us last night apart from the players not being arsed was 2 years of inactivity in the transfer market and Poch’s ability to get players over achieving. The cracks have got so much paper on them they resemble the bible.
The one pic that really summed up last night was of Levy sat in his box all by himself, I hope he can now see the mammoth task of rebuilding he has on his hands ,that’s unless he’s happy how things are !!2nd October 2019 at 8:13 am #490152nd October 2019 at 8:15 am #49016sean the sailorParticipant435 pts2nd October 2019 at 8:18 am #49017threepsParticipant175 pts
Crazy night for Spurs. I said before that Bayern are not the team they once were and I stand by that, it seemed everything they touched turned into a goal. Spurs seemed to be playing dangerous tactics however, I think it was their 4th or 5th goal which was a long pass and Gnarby just ran on to and scored. The Spurs line was pretty much in the Bayern half which was suicidal against a team with quality and pace.
I said earlier in the season that something didn’t seem right at Spurs and that appears even more apparent now. I thought it was Poch was not happy with the transfer window, perhaps that promises were broken or targets not met. The rumours mentioned on this site a few days ago regarding a player playing hide the sausage with anothers wife seems to be all over Twitter now so maybe there’s a split dressing room.
Big couple of months ahead for them.2nd October 2019 at 9:18 am #49019
if the infidelity rumours are true, you would have htought the press would be more over that and in a big way? if true it will really split the dressing room and make for really tough conditions…2nd October 2019 at 10:19 am #49020
Wow! Didnt see that coming.Bayern are good but not great,and not to beat Spuds 7-2 away.There is something very,very,very wrong inside that Spurs camp.
And one more thing,did Arse really sell Gnabry for a mere £5m? As bad a piece of business as Pogba to Juve.2nd October 2019 at 10:29 am #49021
Defo time for Spuds to rebuild and Poncho to have a new challenge,alongside a few players of this current Spuds team.i.e.Vertonghen,Alderweireld,Rose,Eriksen.Fresh & new blood more than needed.And as for Keane,if he really wants to fight for major trophies on regular basis,which he of course deserves,he should too be thinking of moving on.2nd October 2019 at 10:39 am #49022

And as for Keane,
pretty sure robbie keane is now retired 😉2nd October 2019 at 10:51 am #49024
Buffy-Just for you.Meant Kane you vampire stabbing Sunnydale princess.Did you see what Lewa dd to Jan the man just prior to his 1st goal?Sublime skill by the Pole!! Watching the chickens from norff Landan[or is it cocks?],I thiught I was watching Uniteds defence keeping their legs wide open and being more generous than Katie Price.2nd October 2019 at 11:04 am #49025
Pretty sure Robbie Keane was playing…2nd October 2019 at 12:07 pm #49026EditorKeymaster469 pts
When you’re shorter odds than Solskjaer and Steve Bruce to be the next manager to be sacked, you know you’re in trouble! Incredible that he’s the favourite now

silly really, a freak result and score line in all honesty especially at that level, but to be on the short list? mental!
how long did AW get while were being beaten 8-2 united and many 5-1s against liverpool and many 5-1s in the CL!!!!
spurs dont need a knee jerk reaction…but they do need a reaction and it needs to be very positive
playing Brighton next, not easy but could be a far worse test after a result like this2nd October 2019 at 1:11 pm #49029AnonymousInactive366 pts
Nine, the likes of Real and Utd arent interested in Poch then they thoroughly deserve their predicaments.
Its not the greatest idea to write someone off because they are in a downward spiral, caused ostly because of overachieving preciously, after not getting enough backing.
This is the ebb and flow of the game. Everyone at the club knows they overachieved last season and for many, I think they either dont think they can do it again or they want to go somewhere where this kind of performance is more accessible.
Itd be utter madness for spurs to outright sack Poch but it would probably be best for all if they were more open to him leaving. UTD shouldnt get him for free of course but ya, time to move onto a new project.2nd October 2019 at 1:41 pm #49033
To be honest, I don’t think the score line truly reflected the game itself…
Do think the half-time score was a little harsh on the Spuds, we went flying out the traps and could have had 2 or 3 goals if our finishing was a little bit better, I think they had 3 attempts and 2 goals in the first half, both from outside the box… 2nd half didn’t start great, not often you see Toby get beaten like that twice in quick succession, and it was some quality finishing from the Goonie-reject… at 4-1 not much choice but to throw the kitchen sink, soft peno to make it 4-2 and then it was just a case of who scored next.. and the longer the game went on it was more likely the Germans would do so as Spuds poured forward…
Okay, 3 goals in the last 7 minutes doesn’t look good, and certainly looks unprofessional, but if the game finished 4-2 would there be all the nonsense going on?? I doubt it… and if it went 4-3 then who knows??
But it didn’t and 7-2 is in the record books and all you lot get to have a laugh!! 🙂
As for moving forward, going to be interesting to see what the line-up is Saturday, but I think there’s a player or two who are skating on seriously thin ice…2nd October 2019 at 1:42 pm #49034nine nine nineModerator915 pts
Mak, I don’t think either Club would judge Pochettino just on last night but over his more than 5 year tenure at Spurs Poch has won nothing despite the squad at his disposal add the £32m likely compensation costs and the fact that things are currenty unraveling at Spurs for a variety of reasons and my guess is that both Club’s will be reluctant to go in for him now assuming they were looking to go in for him previously.
I also don’t think Poch has helped himself with some of his outpourings which would surely have been noted by both Real and United.
I’m certainly not convinced that Poch is a hop skip and a jump away from joining United especially with someone like Allegri still in the wings.2nd October 2019 at 1:51 pm #49035PaganParticipant371 pts
Chuckles, Poncho in or out?…..Pagan2nd October 2019 at 1:52 pm #49036
That’s an interesting one, puppy, because there has been interweb “gossip” that Allegri has already been sniffing around the Spuds (yeah, interweb, so who bloody knows!).
He’s certainly the best of the easily available managers around for sure, being on “holiday” at the moment, so it might come down to who blinks first. Do Spuds grab him now, or should UnYooUtd? Off course, if Spuds grab him then UnYooUtd wold have a free run at Poncho, but if Poncho is suddenly free you never know what Real Virus might do to.. otherwise they’ll be left with Baby-Face… 🙂2nd October 2019 at 1:55 pm #49037nine nine nineModerator915 pts
Problem is Chucky is that it would cost Spurs £32m to make that happen. Contracts eh!?2nd October 2019 at 1:57 pm #49038
Peggy… now the dust has settled, I think Poncho has earned the right to try and build Spuds 2.0. He got four players in the summer but hasn’t really had the chance to put all 4 in the team, only N-Dumb has really broken sweat so far. We’ve still every chance of making Top4 this year, as there are plenty of other contenders who are also stuttering… I’d say give him the chance to get all the new signings bedded in, maybe another one or two in Jan is we can, and at least give him the season.
He’s been the best thing to happen to the Spuds for about years, so I’m not going to call for his head just yet, and although this is probably the worst run of results and performances during that time, I think he should get that chance to put it right.
Of course, if we’re struggling for Top4 come Christmas, I reserve the right to change my mind… but for now PONCHO IN!!
