    Nathan Jones should really have stuck with Luton. That’s him sure to be out of a job following tonight’s defeat at the Bet 365.

    Hells bells what the F happened?! I didnt watch it but aaw the score here or there..7!!!

    Commiserations to the spurs lads. Seems like spurs are imploding. Maybe Utd discussions with Poch have moved near completion.

    Just watching the Pochettino interview. You’d have thought he’d just lost the game narrowly the way he spoke, saying repeatedly that Bayern were clinical, almost appearing quite relaxed about it all. Is Poch ultimately too soft? As impressive as the CL run was last season, Spurs haven’t won an away game in the premier league since January. So there have been worrying signs there for some time now.

    I’m disappointed to see Spurs lose so heavily, I know a lot of their supporters and feel for them as they are not your difficult know alls like so many other clubs have. Bayern like Real are also not exactly my favourite team so was hoping for a Spurs win and still can’t believe the score, however always said there strength lays upfront and their weakness has always been their defence. So nothings changed.

    Spurs fans, now that the dust has settled a little, what now? Is it time for Poch to go? Sounds crazy to even contemplate that

    I had this weird dream last night, kinda funny, but Spuds were playing and at half-time Poncho made 11 subs and played the women’s team for the second half… amazed the ref didn’t notice…

    Well Mr. Check they do appear feminists on the field so maybe that’s why your dream ref never noticed.

    There’s a lot that needs sorting out at Spurs that goes deeper than just Poch who is no longer the hot property that he once was and even if he was available I’m not sure even before this defeat United or Real would move for him now.

    Changing the Manager may not be the right solution and it would cost Spurs over £30m to pay him off even if that’s what they wanted to do.

    The sensible strategy is probably to sort out the rebels get rid of the deadwood and back Poch in the transfer market.

    I suspect last night was a bit of a one off and Spurs can still get out of the Group from there though they would probably draw one of the big dogs which will be a test for them this season and dropping into the EL may not be the worst thing that could happen to them and who knows they might go on to win the EL.

    Interesting times at Spurs brilliant Stadium but the squad is in need of rejuvenation and Kane has said he wants to win trophies?

    blimey, didnt see that coming, spuds 35 minutes of CL quality football followed by….?
    said it before and i will say it again, the spuds current journey since they got Poch has reminded me so much of Arsenal under AW (without the trophies)….to be fair though at the time we only had one money bags team to beat and they have many money bags clubs and 2 of the strongest teams ever to beat…

    but, form the years of austerity, keeping a squad together for a long time, not spending, shiney new stadium and now comes all the down sides of those things, it gets harder to keep players and harder to bring players in but these kind fo results do happen, we used to get beat 5-1 consistently by Bayern….something needs to happen if you dont want to follow us down to the levels you used to be at

    shout out to former Arsenal man Gnabry

    he is a starange one, i liked him a lot but he never hit the potential he had, then got loaned out and tanked on loan and now he is a real star for both Bayern and Germany….late bloomer! though surprised how young he still is, he seems to have been around for ages

    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 !!

    Blaze, good to see another good poster in here

    Agree about Madrid. Really have no time for them.

    Spurs problem is players are regressing. N ver wuire got dele Ali. Alderweild was poor for at least one of the goals. That’s a very bad defeat

    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.

    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…
