Spurs look to build on Saturday's victory and break the Wembley curse. Dele out through suspension and Wanyama out with a knee injury. Dortmund are top of the table with 7pts in three matches. Join Mush for an afternoon pint and receive a free doctor's note written on a bar napkin.

Brilliant result. A glory night for all but the officiating.

Clinical in the first half. We're not used to yielding possession and playing on the counter, and we did it masterfully.

One of the commentators said in the first half we were content to sit back. No we weren't. Poch wasn't. We came out with greater urgency in the second and took it to them more. That was key, I think.

Our back line is world class, and Aurier looks VERY strong defensively. Fine job by Davies, whom I generally haven't rated vs. elite competition.

Eriksen was clever. Kane...taxi for... Dortmund's right side? Or an ambulance? And having Dele suspended might've actually helped us in this match, as we've not seen the best of him yet and Son gave them trouble. What a dart to start things off!

Media will talk about Auba's goal that should've counted, but they were offside on the lead-up to their first.

Was that a straight red given to Jan? Because that was not a straight red.

It wasn't a straight red and it wasn't given as a straight red mate ( 2 yellows ). You're bang on with the rest though.
Spurs and Jets for 30+ years has really taken its toll!

Brilliant performance yesterday - we got lucky on the erroneous offside call but I thought we deserved to win. For once, we played the counter-attack game and it worked out well for us. Sick and tired of the games where we have 65% possession against Chealsky and end up losing 1-2. Dembele was weak but al other starters did a good job. Sissoko should have his body checked because I'm now convinced that there were some pinball machine parts installed by mistake. I have never seen a ball bounce off a professional player like that, regardless if it's his head, foot, knee or chest.

As a recent defender of Sissoko I have to publicly confess he did not do his case much good yesterday.

Still hoping it was an aberration due to confidence and coming on as a sub.  In his complete starts he has sometimes shown that there is a footballer in there somewhere!

I honestly want him to succeed but have my doubts - even vs Everton, his second half performance wasn't good. He's on the France national team and poch keeps giving him chances, so there must be something there and hopefully he can start showing it on a more consistent basis.
