    Treat it like a last game of the season party atmosphere

    This is only the 3rd time we've qualified for it in 60 years. So track record indicates this will be our last CL game until 2036.

    Personally think we should try to get though, surely it is better to be in it and decide if we want to take it seriously in Feb - A serious loss of league form or drawing Chelsea away in the FA cup and potentially its season over if we are out of it.

    If we are challenging for the title, then sure play the stiffs when it comes to it.

    But there has to be a point where we want to win something surely? what are our aims? We throw in the League cup, last year the FA Cup and then the EL, and we didn't even do that correctly as we still played first teamers.

    We keep telling ourselves the CL is the place to be, yet we have been utterly feeble in it this season.

    The teams left in the EL are mainly close to Britain so travel should not be an issue.

    We need to break the Wembley hoodoo too, so it isn't still hanging over us in August.

    I think our best bet to make the CL again is the try and win Europa, so play a strong enough team to win.

    We won our first game at the new Wembley, that wonderful final against Chelsea. Since then we've lost all of the following six games, have scored just two goals in those games and have conceded twelve.

    I don't care if I'm being greedy or underestimating the opposition. I demand an enjoyable win whilst resting players for the weekend. Not one or the other, both as an absolute minimum.

    I watched Lampard beat Cudicini with a free-kick from practically his own half. I watched one of the most lifeless performances ever against Leverkusen. I've queued up for hours waiting to get into Wembley Park station after a crushing defeat. I've paid my dues. Now it's time for Spurs to pay me back tonight.

    I have a feeling he will play a pretty strong XI

    Lloris
    Trippier Alderweireld Dier Davies (if fit)
    Wanyama Winks
    Sissoko Alli Eriksen
    Kane

    Wouldn't be surprised if we fielded something like this.

    THIS! First make sure you qualify for the next stage, and when the next game comes up, treat it according to the current situation .

    Why?? Just to rest a players ahead of United match?
    So we throw in the towel on a whole competition (Europa) in favour of ONE league game that we have no guarantees of taking 3 points from anyway, regardless of who Poch picks that day.

    Im not one for i want to win something as you dont get anything for 4th, as thats not where football or the players we want to attract think.
    We are not above the Europa League, Sevilla can say that as they are winners for last 3 years, and judging by their performance in the champions league its done them no harm.

    Its logical

    We are awful at Wembley because we are "not used to it" well we need games to get used to it for next year.
    We are currently second favourites to win the Europa League behind Utd.
    We probably don't have to go away to Moldova on a Thursday as we are past that stage.
    We don't need to worry about the competition until Feb so as said before we dont have to make a decision on who to play until then.
    We need a run of results until the chavs visit.
    We have lower league opposition in the FA Cup
    We have a 10 Day rest from 18th - 28th so can play strongest team for next 4 games

    9 Games to win it - no sevilla, no dortmund, nobody who over 2 legs we shouldnt put away if we wanted to.

    Poch will play a reasonably strong team solely because he believes in this Wembley nonsense.

    Lloris
    Trippier Alderweireld Wimmer Rose
    Dier Winks
    Sissoko Alli Son
    Kane

    He should just play a complete second string.
    Because we are going to face someone good eventually in the Europa and he will end up fielding a team like
    Lloris;Trippier,Alderwiereld,Wimmer,Davies;Mason,Carroll;Onomah,Eriksen,Son;Chadli
    That was the disgraceful lineup that limped out against Dortmund away.

    We are not gonna win the Europa.
    We have failed to get even to the quarter finals 6 out of the last 7 seasons we were in it.
    Why waste our time in it?

    If he gets Mason on the pitch, I'd be pretty impressed

    Looking at the teams set to qualify for the next round and there's plenty of similar 2000km trips
    Olympiacos, APOEL, Zenit, Shaktar, Krasnodar, Qarabag, Osmanlispor, Ludogorets, Besiktas, Rostov
