What was the title of my last article? Oops. I got that wrong. Very wrong. I genuinely believed that our squad could rest a few and still get a decent result tonight but to be honest we were battered tonight. Dortmund were class all across the park. They hardly hit a misplaced pass all night and in attack they destroyed the Spurs back line. They by passed our midfield at ease. In fact, did our midfield stay at home? I've defended Carroll this season but I can't tonight. He, Eriksen, Son, Chadli, Davies, Mason were dreadful. This was a Spurs performance of olden days. Spineless and toothless. I want to again though just remind fans of a bit of reality. This team is very young and has had an excellent season. The Premier League title was not the aim in August but we are still in the race. Our Europa League journey is probably over but an early goal at the Lane might get dreams started again. Overly optimistic? Indeed I am being there. Either that or delusional. I'll let you decide! I am not going to try and defend tonight's performance because I can't and it shows just how hard Spurs will face it in next season's Champions league. We will certainly need to add to our ranks and I am sure the board and manager are fully aware of that. How much we can add is debatable because of funds being restricted with the new stadium being built. The biggest test will be keeping our current players. And our manager. Our next game is Villa away and that should see us get our title tilt back on track. If we can't beat Villa, we don't deserve the title. We need to win for confidence as much as anything after losing at West Ham, a draw against Arsenal and tonight's poor showing. The media are waiting for Spurs to slip us so we need to make sure we don't grant their wishes. This season is not yet over, but the players are tiring. A slightly worrying point is that under Poch, Southampton dropped off in the last 8 or 9 games of the season. How many games do Spurs have left? Let's hope we don't have to even contemplate that eh? Onwards and hopefully upwards!! As ever, slightly deflated, Come on You Spurs!!
