Completely forgot those loathsome twats were playing. Nice. Watch their fickle fans disappear and attendances plumet if this continues.

Apparently Vertonghen had been caught shagging Eriksen's missus...

The xG for that one is staggering. Bayern had no big chances and racked up less then 2 xG in total.

Had an odd situation at work a month or so back. Had this bloke who’d been with us 7 or 8 years and over the last couple of years we’d given him different projects / roles in an attempt to push him on and find his niche. But whatever responsibilities we gave him he either fucked up or just didn’t do well - in one case losing us about £70k in fees. We’d set up a review with him and were going to give him a formal warning: ie do X and Y in the next six weeks or fuck off. When the meeting came and before we got a word in he resigned, telling us we didn’t appreciate him, he was the best architect we’d ever employed and asked why we hadn’t promoted him. Mad, but a relief to see the back of the arrogant witless fucktard.

Anyway, he was Spurs and it warms my black heart to know he’ll have been there last night.

Brother in law of a good friend is Spurs -> all this bullshit over the past 1-2 years “there is a school of thought that Spurs are about to break through at the very top tier etc etc”. Anyway - with their current woes - I “asked after this guy” assuming my friend was making some hay. Seems the Brother in Law has lost interest in football this season. That - in a nutshell - is a Spurs fan.

Yep, think everyone thought that reaching the final last year would be a springboard for them - looks more like it was their peak.
In 2019 they've played 27 games - 11 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses

there was a recent article in 'the Athletic', had quite a few stats in it, seemed to fairly conclusively show that the really breakneck pressing game that this spurs team made its name for a few yrs back has become a thing of the past, for whatever reason, e.g. maybe some or all of playing squad size/injuries/ageing/burnout/motiviation. remembering that Poc is a [kinda] Bielsa disciple and that we do sthg similar, might this sort of drop-off be in the pipeline for us?

[do you think Phil & co would mind me posting the article?]

Barca and Real both out of the Copa del Rey.

Signs of a sea change in Spanish football, perhaps?

Citeh, Arse, Chelsea, Scum under par. Bayern bring threatens by tiny Leipzig. AC 19 points adrift of Inter. PSG doing a Cess.

Signs of a sea change in European football?

Point of order, sir. For 'Tiny' read 'Red Bull'.

They'll appeal and the ban will be reduced to 12 months.

Ramps up the pressure on Pep to win it this season then (and if they do it changes the dynamic, will UEFA back down if the defending champions can't compete?).
