They’ve lost twice since the new year. Even if they’re in a weaker Croatian league, that’s impressive.

Gonna need to play well to get through.

Think they’ve won their league for about the last 5 years running. But as it’s turned out being at home pre Arsenal at the weekend whilst they go to Greece and back may be an advantage. I think we’ll get through these two games, maybe a 3-1 at home and a 1-1 away, something like that anyway.

will be interesting to see what team Mourinho picks

Comfortable win would be nice. 5 subs is a huge advantage for us. Best we capitalize on it.

Don't mean shit if we don't come roaring out of the gate. I think we have to start with a near-to-best XI, to be judiciously withdrawn if we're able to establish a cushion.

#10, as always, is tricky. I can see the wisdom of Dele, to be replaced later on by the spiteful snap of Lamela, but I feel the Terrier of Buenos Aires might discomfit the purgeri enough to open up some gaps for others to exploit.

And as much as I want Bale to run them ragged, I fear he will be kicked from pillar to post. Best to save him for the NLD, unless we need him to save us late on.

Hojbjerg needs a rest, too. Dare I say Winks to start alongside Ndombele, the latter substituted as early as possible by Sissoko?

Interesting story about the manager of this lot, one involving ratfishboy and others. I knew vaguely about it, but didn't know the ramifications for Dinamo Zagreb. It's all very Europa League--it's not every competition where the opposing manager might be imprisoned before the second leg:

Dinamo Zagreb's Zoran Mamic: master coach or criminal – or both?
Yeah, read that earlier. It's always fun when by way of defense, the accused feels the need to respond to the charges with the question "What is moral?"

Especially when it's dodgy financial shit.

Tonight’s menu will be finest Aberdeen Angus rump steak, lightly kissed with salt and pepper, slowly griddled with equal scorching lines, beer battered onion rings, twice washed...yeah twice, fuck the water bill, fresh salad with none of those vile tomatoes to be seen.
I might quaff a cider or two during tonight’s highly likely snooze fest with the best 2 sticks of England’s glory propping up my saddened saggy lids.
3-1 Yids
what you having ?

For a second I thought this meal was meant to be some sort of metaphor for the game we're about to witness, and I was like, nah, probably more like day-old 6-piece Chicken McNuggets + one accidentally fried rat turd, washed down with a flat sprite.

Interesting just watching the Zagreb players looking at the Spurs players (Kane, Lloris, Lamela & Son) opposite them in the tunnel. Almost like "Can't believe we're actually playing these guys".

Yeah, he’s as one-sided a player as I’ve ever seen at this level. Brilliant play though. Decent start so far, DZ to their credit aren’t sitting deep...

Zagreb is not a bad side but you just know that they get anywhere near our box, they're going to flop

Lamela cannot use his right foot. Nice finish by Kane.
He has been fucking brilliant tonight.... if the rest applied themselves like he does we'd win the fucking league at a canter.... Well not a canter full tilt.... you get what I mean.

Good professional half.... I expect to see us at it for 10 mins and the shut up shop...!

Our long balls from the back have been woeful... neither CB have the ability to pull them off.

Yeah, that’s a pretty much pointless tactic unless it’s Toby doing the hoofing. Dier used to be good for one or two raking long balls a game too, another aspect of his game that’s declined, sadly.

NLD... Is a different prospect all together.

Good team performance overall...

Hoijberg gets a mid week off in the 2nd leg... good foul and good for him to stay at home on the couch in his pants with a beer...

Missed the 2nd half but nice to see we scored one more & kept a clean sheet.

Score one more in Zagreb & DZ will need to score 4. Hard to see them doing that.

Could be an interesting Quarter Final draw with Utd, Rangers, and the scum most likely to be there. Jesus, could you imagine us against the scum in the final !?!

It was a pen at full speed... that just confirms it... hey ho, didn't cost us in the end and if they said we'd have to deal with decisions like that now and then and the pox of VAR was to be cured by its banishment to the football cupboard of shame, I'd live with it.

Commentator mentioned that we have played more games that any other premiership side due to this comp and the cup runs... that has to be factored into our league form and resting tired legs etc.

Get an early goal out there or two and bring all the lads off we can. Maybe even rest a few from the off.
