What a fabulous Cup tie..... Rochdale at Wembley for the replay. That's the stuff of dreams.

It was great, wasn't it? Must admit I was a bit disappointed when the ref gave the pen.

I bet it was.

I know it's all been lost in the delight at Man U's demise, but credit to Pocchetino for a brilliant tactical game last night (reverting to a back four at exactly the right game) and also to Alderweireld, who was absolutely fantastic last night. There may be a better centre half in the game, but I'm struggling to recall him (maybe Varane is comparable).

Interesting subs today from Spurs - Five minutes to go, losing 2-1...take off Dembele (deep midfield), bring on Winks (similar). One minute before the full 90, still losing, bring off Davies (left back) and replace with Rose (similar). Lose 2-1.

Intersting subs pt 2 : Spurs 2-0 down at home with 8 minutes of normal time to go against Liverpool... bring off Dier (holding midfield player) bring on Wanyama (holding midfield player).Lose game.

Interesting decision to leave Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld at home, and not even put them on the bench.

Yet again, Spurs concede goals from set pieces and throw away a winning position in Europe.

Some of the fans are beginning to question where the club is going, which is a bit harsh on Pocchetino.

However... there are growinf reports that the new stadium won't be completed until the summer!

Still, Spurs fans can get a look at "the future" here :

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45481620

Tottenham fans will be able to see inside their new stadium before they can physically step foot in it - thanks to a video game.

FIFA19 will feature a virtual version of the ground when it launches on 28 September.

Interesting subs pt 3:

Bring off Wanhyama - replace with Dier (like for like)

Bring off Son - replace with Sissoko (virtually a second forward with a wide midfielder - who is fucking hopeless, by the way)

Bring off Lamela - replace with Llorente (a goalscorer on the night for a guy who in two seasons at Spurs basically hasn't been).

Lose 4-2 at home.
