The last time Spurs played Borrusia Dortmund was simply a case of bad timing, the night before the game a baby grand piano fell on Mauricio Pochettino’s head and he subsequently selected the following squad:

Lloris 16Trippier 4Alderweireld 27Wimmer 33Davies 8Mason 28Carroll 25Onomah 23Eriksen 7Son Heung-min  22Chadli Substitutes 2Walker 6Bentaleb 10Kane 11Lamela 13Vorm 19Dembélé 38Carter-Vickers. 

Wimmer who pretty much never played for us again. Davies who was then virtually agoraphobic. Ryan Mason who had just ‘come out’ as a failure in the making. Tom F___ing Carroll – the housewives choice. Josh Onomah the latest academy flop and of course the legendary Nacer Chadli; the best looking player Watford ever bought.

That side lost 0-3 Sausage Side. We then went on to lose 1-2 at The Lane. The squad for that one was:

1Lloris 16Trippier 4Alderweireld 27Wimmer 33Davies 15Dier 8Mason 11Lamela 20Alli 22Chadli 7Son Heung-min Substitutes 3Rose 10Kane 13Vorm 25Onomah 28Carroll 29Winks 38Carter-Vickers

Another muddle of players that weren’t good enough.

Fast forward to tomorrow and Spurs are in far better shape… this is a side to restore some pride.

      Is it written in his contract?

      He could play in front of kane taking dires place. Would be a brave move. Chasing the game maybe. it could work. The team above looks strong.

    Well Dele is already banned, but this ref has sent off 2 in his only 3 games this season. Aurier to be booked – odds got to be short!

  • McG September 12, 2017 at 1:10 pm

    Thats def the side I want to see tomorrow. Need Dembele & Dier to own midfield… I was impressed with Diers pass % so far this season, 4 games & 90% average.

  • Tottenham central September 12, 2017 at 12:51 pm

    Word round the Tottenham camp fire regarding nkoudou is “poch has got him working on the defensive side of his game and his positioning. He is happy with his offensive game. Apparently he skins people on a regulars in training. But that aint enough for poch. He’s nearly ready.

    • gus September 12, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen had a debut to forget at his loan club. Just when you thought things could not get any worse for Fenerbahce they went and lost their first ever game at home against Basaksehir. The once-upon-a-time Istanbul minnows are yet again genuine title contenders. Abdullah Avci’s side simply cannot be underestimated anymore. The visitors took a two goal lead with goals from Attamah and another ex Tottenham forward Adebayor. The Yellow Canaries did manage to equalise but Janssen now Soldado were able to find a winner.

    Instead it was Kerim Frei who had the last laugh. The Turkish international scored his first goal since joining from Birmingham City over the summer in a last-gasp winner.

    • MysteriousStranger September 12, 2017 at 11:49 am

      Janssen came on after 64 minutes. When his new team was 2-1 down. A debut to forget? FFS. Sensationalist wank.

      Last thing you want when watching football, Klopp in your face all match.

      (Verb) The act of hitting another with male sex organ, post intercourse.

      Informally: Smacking someone with your penis after having sex. Preferably in the face. Simular to several other acts, but this act requires post sex, usually in close to proximity to when the sex occured.

      I had sex with sally then Klopped her in the face.

    Oddly playing Sissoko on Saturday now looks like a very wise move. Poch even had the luxury of pulling Harry and Eriksen off before the end.
    Moose should be fresh, Son too who will come in for Dele. Serge could also make his debut which would be lovely. Even the bench looks strong. A Wembley win would be a great way to start this competition.

    glad we have gone all sustainable and pc,we are now officially plastic
    Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivalled performance and lower environmental impact.

    The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.

    Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than three billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 5,200 football pitches.

    100 Great Goals and a cross what went in.

      He should cross more in August

  • AccringtonSpurs September 12, 2017 at 10:25 am

    Not sure if Sonny is up to speed for this. Didn’t really have a preseason, did he.

  • Northern Spur September 12, 2017 at 10:25 am

    Yes, that would get my vote.

  • AccringtonSpurs September 12, 2017 at 10:24 am

    I have Aurora start the game, with Tripps/Llorente as tactical substitution options.

    Shame no Wanyama.

    • Aussie in Switzerland September 12, 2017 at 10:55 am

      I think Aurora is a porn star

  • 61SpursNut🌰 September 12, 2017 at 10:23 am
