‘What did you do in t’ war, daddy?’

‘I played in that there Spurs’ backline, my boy’

Jan Vertonghen made 1 back-pass all night. 26 successful forward passes. 100% tackle rate, 3 interceptions, 6 clearances, and committed zero fouls.

Davinson Sanchez‘s passing accuracy hit a rather sexual 92.9%, in the defensive third he passed with 100% accuracy. Again, just 1 back-pass.

Want more? He got more.

The Colombian recovered the ball 6 times, made 2 interceptions and 2 blocks. 8 clearances, 3 headed clearances and no fouls committed.

Oh, and Serge, Toby and Ben were all pretty good too.

So next round:
Spurs
Ajax
Porto
United
Juve or Athletico – (Athletico 2-0 home goals up)
City or Schalke – City take 3-2 away lead home
Barca or Lyon – 0-0 going Nou Camp
Bayern or Liverpool – 0-0 going to Munich

So I think we have a great chance of seeing 4 English teams in last 8. Then I think Barca should just edge it (could you imagine the fall out if both Barca and Real went out!!), and juve Athletico…I think juve might turn that around.

So most of us would prefer Porto (I would have said Ajax until that display in Madrid). If Lyon can beat Barca, I wouldn’t mind a piece of them too. Some will say “I don’t care who we get, I want to beat the best…” but personally I would rather only play one good side in the final than in the QTR’s! look at Liverpool last year, hardly faced a real team until the semi finals.

Bet we draw manures next round…

THIS.

Can expect more favourable decisions to go their way.

Re DD’s comments on LLoris, I believe that goalkeeping has never been so difficult with a light ball swinging all over the place. And managers like Guardiola seem to expect their goalies to dribble the ball like Messi!

Superb result for United, so don’t want to take anything away from them. However, I really do think PSG are somewhat overrated; I never ever feel that they’re going to win the Cl. They’re not genuine contenders in my view. Anyway, I think this result probably keeps Poch out of United’s clutches this Summer at any rate. Alas, Real and PSG may come after him.

Not much doubt, Porto the draw everyone will want in the quarters; get them (and we probably won’t!) and we ought to make into SF.

Incidentally at 2-1 to United very late in the game, I felt pretty sure they were going to get the winner right at the death. Not sure they have the right manager long term, but if they continue in this vein until the end of the season how can they not give him the job?

OGS deserves the job, to release him and then give the job to Posh would be madness for Manures. Firstly Poch would cost them a fortune, secondly Poch would have to work with big egos there, something he hasn’t yet done. OGS has got a good tune out of them already and is also part of the Fergie mafia that inevitably has a huge influence on what’s going on.

OGS is taylor made for them and has now proven to be the right man, Manure is a very different job to Spurs and there’s no evidence that Poch would be right for them.

To me, Neville is wannabe manager and even took on the Valencia job in which he was shit, can you imagine if an ex team mate gets to manage your boyhood club and you are left up in the commentary box as the failed manager? No wonder he was banging the job for Poch, he’s jealous of OGS most probably, Neville would be like that, he’s a massive tit sometimes…

Real and PSG aren’t secure jobs for any manager, ok, big clubs with big budgets but Poch will know a lot about both those clubs and the precarious nature of managing them.

When you look at the bigger picture, having a very secure job at a club achieving regular Champions football in a great city like London soon to play in a 62k seater shopping mall isn’t that bad a gig for any manager, especially whilst earning over 8m a year. Poch won’t leave yet, not for a while.

That’s how he will be remembered. Why didnt Lukaku take the pen for his Hattrick.

I’m 41 this is my last season, I’ll take the money. Him and who ever did the back pass for the first.

I do not mind seeing another English team go through sheerly for the strength of PL, but that VAR review was sickening.

It just beggars belief that we would let Tobey and Vertonghen go. Not a shred of football sense does it make dispensing if that experience.

Utd were 10/1 to go through. I very nearly did it. Gutted. Still take my UTC win. Had a strong feeling it’d be 3-1. Shat.

Shelling out £75m for Lukaku only just starting to reap dividend is he there for the longhaul I have my doubts!

Interesting stream, loving it. No commentary, only crowd and match noise. Watching a Spurs home stream in this manner would be outstanding.

Warning for anyone at work, the only popup to relieve is a stripper window opening in a separate tab. Just quickly close the tab and maximise the match video player.

Can we please please relieve Aurier of throw in duties. I’ve never seen anything like it.

IMO can we totally disregard Aurier altogether! Ok no unforced errors last night but unless something changes he has been an expensive flop!

Can we please relieve Eriksen from set pieces. Averse to taking inswinging corners and poor on free kicks why bother?

LLoris’s form is frustrating. Frequently berated on this blog, his saves were top notch last night going from the sublime to the rediculous but hey ho thats the ups and downs of a keeper from zero to hero!

So true, being one of the protagonists for TheNewGazza™ I still think he will end up your No1. Good to see Lloris try to do better with his distribution. Good healthy competition within the team certainly seems to help.
