Mauricio Pochettino spoke of confidence and trust being built after a magnificent midweek win in the Champions League against the German big hitters Borussia Dortmund.

Spurs were frequently electric and delivered a seminal performance that really did give any Wembley hoo do a run for its money winning 3-1 in the opening game of this season’s most prestigious tournament.

The victory was important on two levels; in giving Tottenham a distinct advantage in the competition as well as making a small step towards the players psychologically feel as if the national stadium could be fashioned into a home away from home.

      The device failed to detonate as intended and instead caused a fire instead of an explosion. Injuries but as far as I am aware no deaths. But it is a warning as to how vulnerable the public are to attack.

      This was on a route I have travelled many times.

    Seems the win has even affected Harry Hotspur’s chuckle muscles. Must admit I was chuffed by the splendid performance and screw the likes of Gary Neville and his attempts to downplay that this was a win for the team, and not just a Harry Kane solo effort proving he’s good enough to deserve to join Man United.

    It surprises me that so many expect our new stadium to be souless like the emptycrates? It’ll have the lagest Kop end in europe, closest proximity to the pitch, & sound engineers involved to help retain noise. Rest is up to the fans I’d say..

      And a canned laughter track for when we humiliate the gooners at the new destination.

      McG: The Lane became increasingly sterile over time, how are acoustics going to combat dearer tickets and people swapping cheese tips?

          p.s…and win a cup

          • caveman September 15, 2017 at 7:22 pm

            Fuck win a cup, win the league.

            • McG ⚽⚽ September 15, 2017 at 7:23 pm

              The league cup?

            • caveman September 15, 2017 at 7:23 pm

              Lilywhite didn’t want to sound rude to you and you so positive. Apologies.
