Spurs have just one point from their opening three Champions League matches – that’s the stat we need to rid ourselves of!

Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 28 home Champions League games (W26 D2). They’ve scored 87 goals in that run, while conceding just 13 and never more than once in a match.

Since the start of 1976-77, Barcelona have lost just one of their 30 European home matches against English clubs; this coming against Liverpool in February 2007 (1-2).

Barcelona have won their Champions League group for the 12th consecutive season. However, the winner of Group B has only won the Champions League once (Real Madrid in 2013-14).

Barcelona have lost just one of their last 12 Champions League meetings with English clubs (W9 D2 L1), with that defeat coming in November 2016 at Manchester City (1-3).

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been involved in 28 goals (22 goals, 6 assists) in 29 Champions League appearances against English clubs.

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has scored 22 goals against English clubs in the Champions League; 10 more than any other player (Cristiano Ronaldo, 12 goals).

It has been posted already but listening to Nash and Holden commentating was a pleasure. Loved the moment Son broke away in the first half and Nash blurted our “Go on Sonny “ ……. 😀

Anyone wishing to send a card to PSV’s H. Lozano and N. Viergever can do so at the following address.

PSV Eindhoven.

Also send one to the Inter left back and their forward Martinez who’missed’ a free header from 6 yards in the last minutes.

No sooner are my eyes open Clive Allen I think is speaking of a February opening date for the stadium, as much as I’d like to live in a world where Spurs get an against the odds draw in the Nou Camp to qualify for the knock out stages its all a little too convenient, and as it turned out, not against the odds at all according to bookies at kick off. You take the Barca team selection and couple it with their below par performance and Inters pathetic attempt complete with a gift goal and its difficult to take it at face value. February is when the next stage begins, and the very morning after the match the February opening is being pushed. ‘The only place to watch CL football in London’. For now, its still a promise. ENIC just bought themselves 2 months of grace from fans who will now take this latest carrot and chomp on it till then……’it could be ready for the knockouts’ etc etc

I’m tired. Its a masquerade.

If Sonny had just managed some composure a 1-4 scoreline would not have flattered us. I think he was overawed by the big occasion.

Very much so. Sounds like we should won by at least 3 away at Barca…..wonder if the knockout stages would see such a performance from them if we meet??

Would take Eriksen off Corner Duty though, first 3 didn’t beat the first man and 4th straight to Keeper, but his passing and vision was superb against quality opposition.

Just a mention for Llorente too, think his experience calmed the front line in a big match.

Sissoko or Eriksen as MOTM…..I can’t decide, both were superb in the second half.

Moura made the difference too.

Oh yes, Moura and Lamela certainly played their part as did others but MS & CE were head and shoulders above the rest.

Which is why fans that prattle on about the League Cup and that “at least it’s a trophy” do my head in.

That’s the only trophy we’ve won in 20 bloody years and we won it twice. We need to move on from that mentality, it’s a ‘Spursy’ attitude.

There are some out there that would rather win the League Cup rather than qualify for the CL. They’re either mental or still think it’s 1983…

Just to be dryly realistic for a second; barca were through no matter what and they were winning for most of the match, so I think our performance especially regarding possession percentage was in good part because they weren’t bothering too much, didn’t want any unnecessary injuries and were saving their legs for their next league match. That said, it’s still barcelona and the boys dun good.

I’d hate to meet em in a knock-out match though.

SpursGoliath

Still…you could tell they REALLY didn’t want to actually lose at home. So still aa tricky assignment.

Plus they sent on the fifth best player in the world to bail them out.

Urbane Sturgeon

With shooting boots on we could have scored 3 or 4, it’s barcelona, they weren’t really trying. Given what we’re capable of (see goon match) I agree, we did rather well.

If we meet again in the knock-outs and beat them again I’ll crack open the 2003 La Chapelle.

Go to a back 3 with Sissoko as right wingback. Better than any other option, KWP looked way out of his depth. Understandable perhaps tonight but true….

We should have had a hatful of goals based on the opportunities we missed tonight so a draw is the least we should have looked for. Some finishing but I do believe we made subs before the 75th min and I think that shook Barca. Lamela and Moura made the difference. Just that fffing NLD sticking in my claw to spoil a great run of results….
