Only Spurs rush in: it's the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2018/2019 thread

Fuck yalls disinterest in this shambolic money laundering footy tournament! PSV are in it ffs, after ages. And we're in it to win it.

It's a special year, because the ILX Spurs massive will meet the ILX PSV massive. The latter is, granted, not very massive (it me). But we're off to a surprisingly good start this year. PSV won 0-7 from ADO last weekend, I can't remember the last time Spurs beat ADO by those numbers, if at all. Harr harr, but this is the CL 18/19 thread, since no one bothered to start one before me.

I will tell you all one thing: we will probably finish fourth in this diabolic group. But we have these two:

Hirving 'Chucky' Lozano and Erick Gutierrez. A true bromance. Played together since they were 11 at Pachuca, Mexico. Now, finally, reunited at PSV. Guti played his first 20 minutes last Saturday, when PSV thrashed ADO 0-7. Guti came on, his first ball contact was delivering a 50 yard pass to his buddy Chucky. Five minutes later he scored like fucking Juninho could, a belter.

They, my friends, are ready. Show me what you've got.

reading deems livecomms of a spurs game, you have no idea who's winning or how many goals there have been

imago, Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:23 (one year ago) link

but you usually know the ref is a cunt

Take it as read.

Poch out

Inter were fairly shit. They spent most of the match looking for Spurs players to be booked

. (Michael B), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:50 (one year ago) link

spurs best performance this season but that was two shit goals to concede at any stage on any stage

lbi's life of limitless european glamour (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 20:56 (one year ago) link

I came late and didn't know the lineups and spent much of the first half wondering if neymar or mbappe had even started

gbx, Tuesday, 18 September 2018 20:57 (one year ago) link

He should have squared it though, the apparent inability of any of our players to pass to Kane when he's in a good position is going to fuck us.

That and all the other things.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 18 September 2019 18:39 (three weeks ago) link

lamela looked as sustained-period good since he come on as i can recall in his entire spurs career

provisional ilx (darraghmac), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 18:40 (three weeks ago) link

we should not be making these guys look so useful

provisional ilx (darraghmac), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 18:40 (three weeks ago) link

still quite optimistic for a winner here because this lot are shite

Was coming here to post that! Two ridiculous goals, too.

Anyone want to start a new thread?

Courtois given the hook at half time.

"Clumsy" from Aurier there

The World According To.... (Michael B), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 19:11 (one week ago) link

Trust Aurier to fuck up jumping over a player and manage to stamp on their leg with both feet instead.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 19:12 (one week ago) link

Third time's the charm

such a privilege to see world cup winning keepers in their prime

wot's the tea mum? (not beef again) (DJ Mencap), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 19:21 (one week ago) link

Who cares about defending with Sissoko turning into Pirlo before our eyes?

Matt DC, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 19:24 (one week ago) link

lol got a shit stream for the second half, hiccuped right at kickoff, we concede, fuck this lot of clowns, im out

Good timing to peace out. It’s a rout.

Uhm where's the defense guys

look VAR is random ppl need to accept it

all over bar the shouting (im here for the shouting) (darraghmac), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 20:20 (one week ago) link

it's not random

it's designed to protect the refs

Number None, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 20:21 (one week ago) link

love to concede four from seven on target at home against 50% possession, nothing wrong with that defensive line at all

all over bar the shouting (im here for the shouting) (darraghmac), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 20:35 (one week ago) link

At this rate they'll double the number of goals we've conceded at this stadium in one night.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 20:47 (one week ago) link

lolz

ah no srsly look when glc is fit our defence will just work poch in, throw another 5m at him actually, that will make the players try harder which is all thats wrong

all over bar the shouting (im here for the shouting) (darraghmac), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 20:48 (one week ago) link

Lol, shambles. BBC all sorts of confused:

A night to forget

Tottenham 2-7 Dinamo Zagreb

Ouch.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 20:53 (one week ago) link

that defensive set up must destroy vertonghen, alderweireld and lloris tbf.

from a tight knit unit with that sweeper role for lloris and a brief to play themselves, theyre now this "deal with everything" panacea and the sweeper is now a farcical false 6.

its a complete cop out from pochettino to continue with this failed tactic that suits none of our players and if he doesnt unbend his neck hes gone by brexit.

Mike: Serge Gnabry may be able to score a hat-trick in the CL but he's still not good enough to play for West Brom who are currently losing to Leeds.

You simply love to see it <3

last few weeks have probably been useful in making the fact that we're at least as long-term fucked as Arsenal or Man U into something like a mainstream opinion

wot's the tea mum? (not beef again) (DJ Mencap), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 21:19 (one week ago) link

Lack of a defensive midfielder is really not helping either, Winks is transparently not that player. Dier has the ability to drop into a back three but, on the other hand, has been absolutely awful for two years now.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 22:12 (one week ago) link

Right, now Liverpool have thrown away a three goal lead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
