I've seen Spurs play worse than they did tonight but oh my did they hit the self-destruct button. It was like Spurs of old. Huffing and puffing but couldn't blow the house down. Pochettino picked a strong starting 11 although I was surprised to see Winks dropped in favour of Dembele. Winks had a great game at Fulham and Dembele had been out of form. Spurs, with a rather quiet 80 + thousand behind them started quickly and after ten minutes took the lead. Dier scooped the ball forward, Eriksen latched onto the ball and just as it looked as though he may have over run the ball, he calmly slotted past the keeper and it was Spurs in control. But here is a question for you. Is there anything more pointless in football than a Spurs corner? Corner after corner went to a Gent head, was played short and then backwards!!! It was so infuriating!!!!!! And then the 5 officials decided a blatant goal kick was a Gent corner. Alderweireld was furious and Spurs switched off. When the corner came in, Spurs were asleep , Kane had gone wandering and in his attempt to get to the ball, he merely nodded the ball back into his own goal and suddenly Gent had the away goal and Spurs were in need of 2 goals to progress. Walker got forward well but I have to say that Trippier delivers a better ball. Walkers crossing was abysmal and when in a good position he drew a decent save from the keeper with players in the box in a better position. The fans were getting nervous and although the odd bit of volume was heard, that nervousness was transferring to the players. Passses started to go astray and tackles became reckless. Then on 40 minutes, in a part if the field where there was little danger, Delle showed his dark side and lost it. It was a shocking challenge, High and studs up and I don't like to see that. Poch didn't look too impressed either. We got to half time at 1-1 and still needing 2 goals. There was only one thing Poch could tell his players and that was to attack. And in fairness we did so. Son came in and ran at the defence and looked likely to be the player who could push us on to victory. It was in the 61st minute that Spurs got ahead when Wanyama curled home beautifully. Suddenly the packed Wembley crowd was alive and Spurs could sense victory. But Son who was looking good managed to not quite pick out the right ball at times and Spurs just could not get that goal. Kane could have played for another ten hours and still wouldn't have scored in the right goal. Once Spurs went ahead, rather than keep plugging away, the players went all Stamford Bridge on us. Vertonghen and Walker both picked up stupid bookings for dissent and then Dier and Vertonghen managed to get things very wrong. Dier pushed up as Gent attacked, Vertonghen went backwards and Gent were in. The ball was played across and all Dier had to do was to get the ball clear. Instead he totality fluffed his lines as he has done so many times this season and Gent scored to make it 2-2 and 2-3 on aggregate. Spurs were broken. Spurs were out. Lloris: 6 Couldn't do much about the goals. Walker: 5 Got forward okay but his final ball was poor. Trippier can cross the ball better. Vertonghen: 6 Was doing okay but made a mess of the last goal with Dier. Alderweireld: 7 Make him captain. Davies: 5 It's like having a player less on the pitch at times. Terrible performance. Dier: 2 Absolutely dreadful. He was very complacent throughout the game before his **** up. It's been tough being moved around positions but he needs to change his attitude. And up his game. Wanyama: 8 Played well and scored a great goal. Worked hard and unlucky to be on the losing side. Alli: 1 Appalling tackle. A fabulous talent but he HAS to learn. He let his side down and the fans tonight. Spurs were attacking and could have won this game. He will be brilliant for us but tonight was inexcusable. Eriksen: 6 He got his goal and did get forward well. But he needs to work on his strength. He gets bumped off the ball too easily. Dembele: 3 How Winks didn't start is beyond me. Dembele has not been good this season and tonight he was very poor. Kane: 4 Not a good night for Harry. Own goal and just not at the races. Winks: 7 Came on and gets the ball forward quickly. Has to start against Stoke. Son: 7 In fairness he came on and added pace. Missed a great chance but at least created chances. Janssen: N/A Can't give a score. Pointless bringing him on with 2 minutes left needing 2 goals. Pochettino : 6 Tricky. Alli cost us the game tonight along with Dier. I don't think that Poch will have been having a nice little chat with them tonight. Gent are a team sitting 6th in the Belgium league. Basically about the same level as Sutton United. Okay, that's harsh but to lose to Gent over 2 legs is simply not good enough. Alli didn't help. The lack of talent on the bench didn't help and yet another Dire, Dier mistake has cost us dear. I can only hope that we don't play at Wembley next season and just play in a local park. Poch has a massive job to do now to lift his payer for the visit of Stoke. It's the FA cup and top four now for Spurs. Missing out on both is, well, I hope we don't have to deal with that. Here we go again. Come on you Spurs.
