I was always going to do an opinion piece on what transpired last night but decided to wait until I had a good night sleep and tempers had cooled before I gave my take on what we all witnessed.
I am glad I did because I have changed my mind significantly and I am no longer that angry and am in fact, pleased.
The reason is simple, the embarrassing defeat to Mura means there is no more hiding, no second chances, no papering over the cracks, no more excuses.
You see, if we had won or even drawn the game then things would have just carried on as usual and all eyes would have turned to the Premier League at the weekend.
Maybe we win at the weekend, maybe we lose, either way, it is just death by a thousand cuts and slow painful death.
What Tottenham needed, what Daniel Levy and Antonio Conte needed more than anything was to be faced with the true reality of the situation and that is what last night has done, the inevitable simply cannot be avoided now.
Losing to a depleted Leeds United at home could have been that wake-up call that the hierarchy at the club needed but chances are it probably would not have been enough, a humiliation was needed and thankfully it has come in a meaningless competition that no one cares about.
Being humiliated in the league or domestic competitions is far more damaging and so rather than looking at last nights defeat as the end of the world, it could finally signal a new era in N17.
If Conte quits it is hard to see Levy surviving, if the Chairman does not back Conte in the January transfer window, that could signal the end of Levy, all roads now point to Levy, that is what last night really has brought us.
So yes, last night was actually a good night, the loss is not that damaging in itself but ignoring it would be fatal for Levy and means everyone that counts at the club knows full well what is needed now, without the humbling against the Slovenian minnows we could have limped through the January transfer window, that cannot happen now.
Short term humiliation for long term gain is how I now see last nights horror show.
