So - one sent off in the first half, another absolutely should have gone too, plus three bookings. Manager substitutes two of the three booked at the interval- clearly to avoid another sending off and must have told the players to go sensibly- and then one of those that come on gets himself sent off in less than two minutes. Priceless.

Turning up the heat.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48235092

Pochettino plans talks with chairman Daniel Levy this summer after five years in charge.

"I am not open to start a new chapter with no plan, with no clear idea, with not being transparent," he said.


"I know very well how this business works," Pochettino said. "And we know we need to operate in a different way - that doesn't mean to spend more or less money.

"But if we expect every season to be in the final of the Champions League, we need to create a plan. And the plan maybe is different to what has happened in the last five years.

"If we believe that if we operate in the same way that we have operated in the last five years we are going to be every season in the final of the Champions League, and in the top four and competing against projects like Liverpool or Manchester City or Manchester United, I think we are very naive," he said.

It absolutely does “mean to spend more money” though doesn’t it Mr Poch?

Do you blame him for wanting to have some money available? I still keep referring to that stat - since Mourinho took over at Man Utd, Spurs have spent a net £29 million. That's inconceivable. There are Championship clubs spending that on a yearly basis.

Absolutely not!

He is brilliant, they HAVE to support him for sure. He obviously loves being there but not enough to stay if he isn’t on a playing field that is at least in the same county as the teams he is competing with.

Any Spurs fans here? Disappointing result today wasn’t it?

Horrendous injury to Lloris.

Looks like their 'best team in 50 years' just got their 'best manager in 50 years' sacked.

Interesting.

I hope to God they have lined up Mourinho. That would mean he would never end up at Arsenal.

Mourinho it is.

Dear oh dear. Poor old Spurs.

Still, you gotta laugh at what is clearly a match made in heaven, Levy and Jose. I mean, that’s guaranteed to work well isn’t it?

Hilarious.
