    It’s in the past to me too. Can’t wait for pre-season hopes to arrive!

    I don’t want to go to bed now, in the morning I’ll wake up and we’ll lose all over again.

    We always lose. Even when we win.

    That 4-3 against City proved it.

    I’m not angry at the team or manager.

    I’m just angry that we made a Champions League final and were on level terms for about 1 min. It’s the manner of the defeat that’s annoying.

    Mexico..All's I'm saying
    Sitting in Madrid airport waiting for a flight to Munich then a 10 hour wait then a flight back to Luton. Gutted isn’t the word. Not ashamed to admit I shed a few tears. Don’t think I’d go to another final if we were lucky enough to get there, can’t put myself through that again.

    I hope trippier never plays for us again. I don’t blame him but the result but the guy just isn’t good enough. I don’t understand how you can have a player like rose who leaves absolutely everything out there and makes crunching tackles every game then you have trippier who never does it.

    I hope Poch is backed in the market.

    Gutted

    I think it's the manner, the what if of it all.

    We've been involved in 2 of the all time great CL ties in this campaign (and not just my bias, lots of opposition fans have said the same) . Yes sometimes we've been outplayed in these games. Perhaps been a little lucky at times. But they've been punctuated with attacking intent, drama and a never say die attitude.

    I'm not ashamed to say that despite being generally very rational, generally quite free of emotion, I'd started to convince myself that maybe, with the manner of those victories, that our name was on the trophy. Just like it was for Liverpool and Chelsea in 05 and 12.

    So to get to the final and then concede a stupid penalty within 22 seconds... Was just mind boggling for me. To not have a shot on target until the 80th minute... Baffling. To only produce an onslaught (of sorts, not like they were properly under the cosh) after we'd conceded the 2nd goal in the 88th minute... Why not before that?

    We didn't embarrass ourselves out there, for sure. And I'm incredibly proud of these players for the CL campaign as a whole. They've done an amazing job, well beyond what was expected. But I'm disappointed in how we performed in those 90 minutes. We were 90 minutes away from immortality, from changing how this club is perceived, potentially forever, from maybe launching us into the elite. But we didn't perform as we could and like we know we can. That's what most disappoints me.

    Anyway, we have a huge summer ahead of us now. This squad needs a refresh, the CL run kind of papered over the fact that we just about limped over the line in the league and have played quite poorly for most of it. We need to do 2-3 windows worth of work in 1. But I'm confident in Levy and Poch and am excited to see what we look like when the season starts again.

    I never had ANY expectations of a win, because we used up all our luck cards in the previous two ties, the squad was tired, recovering from injuries and just bang out of form. Plus I just knew that Poch would drop Moura and start Harry. This is what we do, we prick tease the supporters right up until... the 88th minute.

    Nothing to be sorry about … frustrated, disappointed, question the football gods about our luck at the final hurdle = yes, sorry = no

    The final in and of itself was overachievement, and we were not outplayed or outclassed by a team that has had it's best season in decades. And to me that is the point all the moaners are missing.

    This has been a brick season for Spurs, Wembley and the stadium delays, so many injuries, fatigue and form issues from our WC players, lack of depth biting us in the ass after last two windows lack of activity. Yet despite that, we got top 4 and made the CL final and showed we belong there.

    Lets continue to play the long game, we will get there ...

    I’m gutted, I’ve never felt this low about football before, absolutely devastated.

    I still feel devastated. Depressed. Angry and frustrated with what happened last night. I really believed last night would be different but it wasn’t.

    Yup, after the memorable manner in which we reached the final and having almost every English football fan cheering us on last night (bar Dipppers, Goons, Chavs and Spammers) I thought we were due to do something as miraculous as Leicester winning the EPL.

    Sadly it weren’t to be and those recordings I’d kept on TiVo of our victories in knockout stages no longer have much repeat value and I’ll probably delete them later.

    And how amazing is that?

    That you, as a Spurs fan, are so so gutted because we failed to win the Champions League.
    Rather than (say) because we got mauled 6-1 by Sheffield United.
    Or lost a cup tie 4-3 to ten man Emirates Marketing Project after being 3-0 up

    You have to just let that go.
    There is nothing we could have done to influence that differently.
    Sometimes sport is unfair, that's just how it is.

    I feel great.
    This is the most successful season I have witnessed so I sure as hell wasn't going to let something as trivial as bad referring or the score line take away from the enjoyment.
    Yes, a win would have increased the joy. But defeat doesn't lessen it.

    Pool have had an amazing season, playing dynamic football and winning so many games. They struggled against us. I know they sat back after the penalty but Son and Rose nullified Trent AA, Robertson wasn’t a a threat. And they only scored their second, scrappily, close to the end. I feared us getting hammered.
