I think the Fulham game may gave given us our mojo back, we bloody needed it back. It looked like Alli was pretty keen to get on the score sheet, Son too, and Eriksen was lively. That kind of game and performance should be just the tonic we need for this game coming up. Put a strong team out, no fucking around with too many squad players and get through to the next round.

Would really love to see us win a trophy this season as i think this group of players deserve a medal to show for the improvements they've made at Spurs.

Think we'll tonk these boys at home 4-0

We need Eriksen to play, he might be a bit lightweight in the tackle (ooo-errr) but he makes everything tick up front in terms of creativity, it's even better with Alli and near perfect with Alli and Lamela in a foursome with Kane.

We'll go through if we can stop them scoring, we're vulnerable to pacy counter attacks, otherwise we'll need to score 3, which is also do-able just a bit more difficult. They have sold 7,000 tickets I'm lead to believe. Should be a good atmosphere, think we've done about 70,000.

We've sold this game out. I know tickets were as little as £5.00 and £10.00 but that's still some going after previous Wembley performances. The sell out should help us during the game and getting used to the stadium for next year and forthcoming domestic Cup finals!!

Did Gent surprise you with their quality?
No, they didn’t not surprise me last week. We were poor, they were better than us and for that they won. They did not surprise me because we watched many games about them and we knew their quality.

What surprised me the most was our performance, not their performance. Tomorrow we are aware about how they play and it’s up to us to show we deserve to go to the next round. It’s not about the opponent.”
How do the team approach the game in terms of balance?
Tomorrow is about us being patient. It’s important to know tomorrow is a game we need to win, that’s in our mind. We need the result – need very good balance, it's key.

Important for us to keep the balance between attack and defence. It’s only 1-0. Now we have time to turn around but we need to be clever, play well, be aggressive, improve our performance from the game in Belgium. Key is to be aggressive and be patient.

Have fun all those going tonight, hope you get a great atmosphere, a shed load of goals and a resounding win for us. I have no idea how it's all going to unfold, maybe they'll defend and try and hit us on the counter, Wembley is a big pitch and they have 7,000 coming for their 'Cup final'...it will be difficult but we'll find a way. COYS!!

By the way why is everyone else copying our COYS these days with trash like COYI and others. Stop it, you wouldn't find us nicking other clubs stuff...like songs for instance....;)

Dele's foul was obviously foolish, but this ref is a fucking idiot. Totally lost control of this match, and his assistants have botched nearly every corner decision, including the one they scored on.

Silly Dele. He'll need to learn from that. We are still in this but need to get more shots on target. Too predictable at times and checking forward momentum to retain possession AAARRRRGH!

Fuckity fuck! We have been playing well, lose a goal to corner that should never have been a corner, Dele's mental challenge which I think is our first red card since like a long time ago. Even down to 10 men we still look decent.

Tough ask now to come out of this and get through to the next round but as long as they keep giving it s go, we can be proud.

Well,winks for one of dembele/wanyama and id go balls deep with Son for Davies,throw Janssen on for last 20 with 2 up top.
Cant defend Dele,gazza-esque,lucky he didnt hurt himself or the other guy.Lets get a goal and this will be epic attack vs defence.

Dele's challenge was indefensible, but ref should have called (and cautioned) the other guy for going through the back of him seconds before. Proves the old adage about the refs always getting the one that retaliates.

Anyway, we created two decent chances after the sending off, I still think we can do it.

Dele let the team down, he will learn from that.

Ref had a shocker, only got the red card decision right. Frustrating the team, and you could see that affecting their game

Kane and Son take their 2 chances at the end, we go through. They must go in if we want to be successful at this level

Good effort from the other players, not our season in Europe this time

Well, the performance was something to be proud of, the result a bit gutting.

If the ref done his job properly, they would not of had a corner to score their first from.

If the ref done his job properly, Dele would of got a free kick before his atrocious challenge.

Even with 10 men we dominated, 80k crowd to watch a Europa 2nd round match. Proud of the team and of the club.

Sometimes shit goes against you but the players gave it a proper go.
