Just got back from match.
Turned off the tripe on Talk Radio on way back to get away from Jamie O'Hara, so only just picking up the Ange comments.
All I can say is that got totally fed up with some of our supporters today, too much about that lot down the road than backing team - particularly second half.
Small time mentality which is why club is where it is.
Game lacked passion and ground lacked atmosphere.
Better team won but strange when home support is almost backing them.
Never want to be in this situation again.
Our stadium has been like that since it was built, i've said it multiple times.

I'm not sure what the overall reason is either, but I watch alot of football and you never get the same moans and groans (Very audible ones) when other home teams misplace a pass or every wrong decision. I get the frustration, but our home fans only ever fully back the team when it's a big game or we are winning or on top.

If we want to be an Ange team the fans need to realise we will lose the ball often as it's risky football, the constant moans and groans and silence when we aren't at our best is just shit.

I enjoyed us actually attempting shots on or even off target.

It's the passing the ball around the 18 yard box continually, leading to nothing which has annoyed me the last few weeks/months.

It's been a pretty wild last 24h with a very divided fanbase but what part of today's disagreements is cause for concern going forward given how unlikely we are to see something similar happen in the foreseeable future?

Today was a totally unique football experience for me having supported Spurs for 20 years.

People who are defining or questioning our fanbase based on a freak event is just going way over the top IMO.

It happened before when we were away to Man U on the last day of the season. A long while ago though. We lost that one also!

I thought it was offside at the time and was surprised the check was so quick considering how close it was.

It’s pretty weird (Suspicious?) that some apparent close calls are settled quite quickly and no lines are shown whereas other not so close calls take an eternity and we see the lines. Happened yesterday also at the Villa game.

I thought we played well tonight especially in the first half- best since the Villa game if not since the turn of the year.. A good team performance with some good individual performances. Was interesting that Ange tweaked the system with a box midfield. It was for long periods 442 with the 2 up top wide players with one or more from the midfield 4 breaking to support them. Good to see he has more than plan A. 2-0 flattered City.

Well what an interesting night. In the ground during the game I wanted Spurs to win and particularly Son to score. But upon reflection a good performance with a narrow defeat is something I'm fine with. I couldn't care less about missing out on the CL. I just want the point to get into the Europa now (and of course Man City to finish the job).

All's well that ends well.

Now we just need these to get relegated due to the charges and we'll take their place next season. E Z.

Even better. At least the scum have got an excuse to pin it to now which isn't "Spurs should be investigated for match-fixing" which is all I thought I'd hear after the game if we lost.

And it makes us look hard done by. How dare VAR cost us champions league like that (or something).

Didn't see the match last night but can anyone shed some light on what Bentancur was booting off about?

He'd got booked which meant he couldn't foul foden prior to their first goal! Good to see at least the player and managers showing some passion unlike our fan base who seem to want to be losers for the rest of days!

I've seen some posters talk about "small Club mentality". Well yes we are, mentally, a small club. Our owners have no ambition to actually win trophies and therefore we are left to hope our rivals don't. (When I say rivals I only mean the gooners).

I also agree that winning breeds winning but we can't win a competition this season and thus I think the performance last night rather than the result will stand us in good stead for big games next season.

I would love to go all out to try and win the Europa (if we confirm qualification for it) next season. That, to me at least, would be big club mentality.
