What a second half this is. And what a goal that was.

BT Sport is a shambles.

Nearly missed an Arsenal goal.

Not good enough you can't drop 5 points at this time of the season, Yes we played 2 derbies on the trot, Plus I don't think Walker and Song are title winning players

Did your stream go off with an unavailable screen? BT are a complete hole. Their internet is crap as well.

BT app. Lost the signal for 45 seconds or so in injury time.

Same. Sky are just so much better. A monopoly on broadcasting football would be far more beneficial to fans.

BT went down on my Sky box too, so it wasn't an app/streaming issue..

Jake Humphrey apologised for it - blamed it on an electricity supply issue in north London.

Bit of a missed opportunity for Spurs today - playing 10 men for 30 mins - but then I'd have probably taken a point at 0-1 anyway.

Was so frustrating yet predictable. They were there for the taking yet we looked more scared than them. We created next to nothing until we were gifted the extra man. Got ourselves in front then revert to headless defending of old.
We looked leggy and couldnt put a decent pass together. We need to rotate a bit more and get some fresh legs in else we could get sucked back into a fight for 4th place. Our set piece delivery was also poor in general. Both corners and free kicks were under par and rarely beat the first man.

I think it was a mistake to rush Dembele back into the game along with Alli. Should have just risked one of them.
Hopefully we can get back to winning ways against Villa, not really fussed what happens against Dortmund as I cant see us winning the cup.
Just really want to see us finish top 3 and be in the CL next season.

Beat Dortmund and we very much can win the competition.

Disgraceful line up last night or lower priority competition? Personally, I was surprised and disappointed to see the B team largely given the run out, esp. against Dortmund. Got the spanking that decision warranted.

Resting players ahead of Villa? Hmm. I guess it's a longer term view with games against Liverpool, Man United and Chelsea still to come but it's a shame the UEFA Cup is thrown away, esp after getting past Fiorentina.

I'd be extremely ****** off if I'd paid to get to Dortmund and then see that line up.

What i don't get is , it wasn't one or the other . He played a lot of first team players and brought some more on . If the worry was injury play a full team of reserves . You can pick up an injury playing the last 15mins . Or else go for it.

Didn't Harry do this as well? Spend a lot of time and effort getting to the latter stages and then just deciding you can't be faffed anymore?

If you're not going to take it seriously, why not make that decision in August?

I suppose though, it's not looking like their best route into the CL for next season

It's a dreadful competition that really nobody cares much about - who really remembers who won it from year to year? We should always use it as nothing more than a run out for the fringe players and kids.

You could say that about most competitions, Sevilla BTW.

However the clubs are quite happy to pocket the money in the early rounds

http://www.livesportsreviews.com/pri...eague-2015-16/

It's actually a fair whack of money for winning your group, I reckon you'd have made about Ł10m by that point, plus a share of the TV money and your gate receipts.

It's not an insignificant sum and well worth having. If you won the thing I reckon you'd have made 25m euros.

I'd guess there is some sort of effort/prize money ratio, probably winning your group is fairly easy, but harder to progress when the CL teams come into it. So pocketing the first 10m is the best thing you can do.

Yeah, and what has it cost us in chasing on all fronts and missing out on top 4 year on year? It's a ball and chain.

What's the point in being in the CL then? It's only some extra cash, it's unlikely you'll win the thing. It's more effort to compete in the CL if you can't really compete.

Well the European adventure is over for another year. Dortmund ripped us apart at will.

Hopefully we will finish the season strongly and make the CL. Hard to see us matching teams like that though.
Only good news from today is that we are now guaranteed 4 teams in the CL next year.

Fear we are running out of steam a little bit and it could be a tough end to the season. Not the easiest run in either.
