That match should have been out of sight but still required a good save from Lloris at the end to avoid dropping points! Great goals all around tonight.

Rode our luck in that match, quite fortunate to get 3 points but it wasn't much to do with QPR playing well.

Complete lack of bottle and pride.

I would've hooked Townsend after 10 minutes.

Aside from Dembele, who was average at best, I wouldn't have paid the rest.

Kane looked like he had the wrong boots on today.

Definitely time for Walker to be sent on his way, along with Dier and Townsend, who seems to contribute very little going in either direction.

Total walk in the park for United today.

Lack of central midfield for Spurs.

True enough, definitely the worst I have seen Mason and Bentaleb play those roles, they were 2nd to every ball/challenge and did not close down the same as the United players did, when they had lost possession.

Kane dropped deep quite a bit and probably put in as many actual tackles, as the entirety of our so called central defence, **** poor all round, but as I said after we allowed Balotelli to screw us out of a point, our season ended right there, seems the players being paid a kings ransom have also decided the same.

Same old Spurs. Pointless singleing out players for criticism really as the Club is just a basket-case and has been for 30 years

If you can't manage to keep a clean sheet at home against Leicester this weekend then you should replace the entire back four.

It seems like Spurs have exactly the same season, every year. No matter what happens around them, they are always 'nearly' good enough.

We're the experts at Spursing it up. Beat Chelsea 5-3, beat Arsenal 2-1, lose at home to Villa, etc. Been doing that sort of thing for years now.

Hopefully they have a good gut out of the squad this year and get rid of all the bad eggs. Would much rather see the likes of Alli and Pritchard in and around the first team than Lamela, Paulinho etc.

Well in the end the season saw us 5th with a cup final defeat.

Sadly we were out of the hunt for 4th a long time before the end. Hoping to see a few sales and trimming of the squad. Bring the younger hungrier players through and get rid of some of the big earners. Would like to see us take the Europa seriously next year as it may be an easier route than competing with the big spenders domestically.
Quality teams in the later stages though and we are never cohesive after changing our team every fixture.
Expecting Ade, Paulinho, Kaboul and Capoue to leave. Probably a few more but lets start with them.
Want to see Yedlin next year as Walker has been terrible. Apparently we are signing Wimmer but not sure about that as Dier has been good and would like to see him feature more. Suspect we may be selling Verthongen. Praying we can hold onto Lloris but fear he may be on way too.

Another season written off to the poxy Europa. A ******* curse that we can't shake.

To think of those too many dropped points against weaker sides - wasn't a HUGE amount in it to United. Another missed opportunity due to inconsistency.

That said, Poch's first season in charge. He's got his core squad fairly settled now and has a summer to clear out a lot (hopefully) and bring in a couple of QUALITY signings who will actually improve the team. Need a top draw CB and a top drawer striker.

Did hear of rumblings about Toby Alderweireld (who's at Southampton but on loan from Atletico). Would be an excellent signing if any truth in that.

So, Tripper or Walker at RB?

Has Dier been playing in midfield in pre-season? Maybe he'll play there alongside Bentaleb this season?

Vorm looked a bit ropey in the bits I saw. Can't believe the difference between him now and when he first started at Swansea.
