Must have a result. Apparently a Marseille rabble shot off fireworks outside the hotel all night last night. This no doubt traumatized our wholesome young men, each of whom obviously went to bed early after prayers, a call home to mum, and a warm glass of milk.

Anyway, I think we'll draw this one, and we'll just have to see whether that's good enough to top the group.

Please start Gil for this one. Also Peresic and Doherty. This will be a tough environment and their experience will be beneficial. They are going to come at us so PEH and Bentancur in the middle is a must. If the wingbacks can get the ball into Kane, Son, and Gil we will score at least two or three. If we don't cockup on defense we should win. Fingers crossed, as I will be pissed if we get bounced.

Really don’t want to end up in the Thursday cup so a win is a must tonight but then with Conte serving his touchline ban there’s always the chance we’ll find a way to cock it up.

I wonder if this may be beneficial to the on field team as Conte won't be gesticulating & micro managing every little detail. So much talk of playing with the hand brake on, maybe his absence will release it & the boys can play freely. Here's to hoping.

Is Doherty really going that badly that we are forced to play Perisic out of position?

I’m sorry but that is a bizarre team that has been selected. We could very easily get turned over here.

Lenglet playing in the middle of a back three makes me nervous as fuck too. He might play a nice pass but he’s a terrible defender.

That's a good point you know and it'll be interesting to see how they handle it.

Seems we no longer have any interest in trying to score goals.

Indeed. It’s an attack -v- defence training exercise for them at the moment.

It's like we intentionally wait until a player is under pressure before we pass them the ball. Defies logic.

Surely concussion protocols mean Sonny is replaced?

He looks bad. If they bring Emerson on I'm turning this off.

And we go even more defensive.

Why the fuck was Gil not brought on there?

Conte is a coward.

So we’ve gone to 5-3-2 apparently..

I'm actually okay with 3 in midfield. Will force them to adjust and maybe we get something going.

Eric Dier doing his best over the last week to make sure he is sitting in a beach in Bali during the World Cup.

No more than they deserve.

Seriously, Conte can fuck off. Coward cunt. You only had to look at the selected team to see the guy has no stones.

Fuck off.

Not even sure I want to watch the second half now.

I'm not watching the game, but it's plainly obvious Conté doesn't trust the players or the side to get a result. That's why he is so so ultra conservative.

I'm so fucking bored watching Spurs defend..... and defend..... and fucking defend without any sign of intent of going the opposite way that I can't be fucked to watch if I have almost anything remotely more interesting to do.

Fuck it, let's get binned out of this and edge him towards getting the tin-tac.

What was the plan here? Let them have the ball and don't attack? We don't really defend well so that is a pretty awful plan.

The Young Ones is on BBC4. That’ll be vastly more entertaining than this shit ..
