    For me the Pen ruined the game. It allowed Liverpool to relax. But the real Man of the Match was Van Dyke. Nothing could get past him. He kept Kane quiet and bossed our attack, as a result we couldn’t get anything going.

    I am gutted tonight, but consoling myself with the fact that we had a brilliant run, some exciting moments and I got to watch my team play in a CL final. A few years ago i remember jumping for joy when Crouch scored THAT header at City cos I never believed we would play in the CL. We have proved we can do this now - next season will be great. COYS!

    Thing is tho. People are getting this wrong. They weren’t bad. They were effective defensively (Mourinho style) after going a goal up so early. They didn’t need to do anything else.

    I felt we could have gambled a bit earlier. Nothing was happening through Kane. We should have gone x2 up there to ask questions. When we did eventually go Llorente we creates some openings by going direct.

    What is Poch talking about. “We played so well and he is so proud of his players” He is too loyal to some players - Kane should never have started and Dele hooked much earlier. He really can’t read games in match play .

    You're right, slating the players in public would be far better management.

    How can that be equivalent to an opponent being taken out with bad foul or one of our players handling the ball to gain an advantage. Accidentally handballs are total flimflam. Especially when it hit his chest first. fudging joke

    Yup. I think poch should read our match threads and choose his replacement from some of the football geniuses on here.

    There a few now for me who are definite ship outs:

    Dier
    Wanyama
    Lamela (I’m particularly sad to say)
    I’d take any sort of decent money for Eriksen

    Obviously Janssen and Llorente

    Trippier is hanging by a thread but I’d give him next season, although would like us to buy a young RB.

    Midfield is the main area for an upgrade for me, although I do think we now need someone to put serious pressure on Harry now.

    Gutted. My little lad is heartbroken. But the amount of Spurs fans outside the ground who stopped to cheer him up was amazing. At least 6-10 people, gutted themselves, stopped and told him we’d be back.

    One fella made a particularly huge effort and said “Son, you look around there at that stadium. This is the start of something special. We’ll be back and you’ll see it.”

    Sickened this evening but proud to be a yid.

    Ottawa, actually.
    If he's here, and if he's backed, I expect nothing less.

    This team performed miracles to get here, but the fact that they did proves how fragile it is at a fundamental level.

    It's another reason why I don't buy the horsecrap that these players didn't try. They did, because for more than a few, this will be their last game in a Spurs shirt. For varying reasons - some will leave to seek a better contract, and some are just not good enough at this level, and never were. This was their last chance to win this.

    So they tried, whatever their faults. But reconstruction will claim many of them anyway.

    Fair point on us giving them something and making it easy to defend.

    But they defended awfully, the number of turnovers were insane, I like to think that had we been in that position that they wouldn’t have seen the ball again.

    @milo Sissoko. The only one of ours on the field of play who actually did anything as far as I could tell (sort of pointed upward and to his right).

    Think we’ve reached our ceiling. FIFA won’t let us go further and our team isn’t good enough to succeed.

    Love the optimism but sadly we will not . We are short in a few areas and need a big freshen up
