Yeah,right back is a problem area for Spurs as Trippier has looked dodgy there recently also.
But other than that the team selection was spot on....Eriksen and Dembele were superb,imo.

Pool book a place in the quarters after the first, away leg as well.
Madrid, who are having a pretty poor domestic season, take a large advantage over mega spending PSG. I thought this would be a far closer encounter with the edge towards the French, but Ronaldo is finding some form just when it is needed..

Great results for the English teams,so far,and gives hope that an EPL team could lift the trophy.
Wether or not the outlook is as great next week after Manchester United and Chelsea play is another matter ! ;)

]Pochettino got his team selection spot on ![/colour][/u] =;
Judging by the responses Zid, it appears your comment missed it's intended mark! :lol: :lol: :lol:
MY response: No he didn't; he got lucky :D
1. Trippier, in the worst of his form, would still be a far superior choice than Aurier. I would go further and state that Spurs purchase of Aurier ranks with the purchases of Jansen & Llorente as among the worst of Pochettino's decisions.
2. Alderweireld is not only in a different class to Sanchez, but also very few would dispute the proven pairing of the former alongside Vertonghen is superior to any other defensive pairing in the EPL.
3. Danny Rose is unarguably a better and more experience big match player than is the up & coming Davies, ( who unfortunately had a poor game against Juventus, perhaps overcome by the occasion?), and should have been selected, notwithstanding any off field problems. He could be relied upon to give of his best and, if Pochettino was not prepared to play him, why have him on him bench? :-k
4. In form Son or the fully fit new signing Moura,, ( the latter a vastly experienced and proven goal scorer just aching to prove himself to Spurs) should most surely have been a more appropriate footballing choice than the not yet fully match fit, and not yet in form Lamella. That Lamella proved to be one of the least effective Spurs players on the night, speaks for itself.
So, no, the selections were far from being spot on, but nevertheless no question Pochettino is entitled to full credit for instilling into the squad the solidarity, determination, passion and refusal to accept defeat, which are now integral features of his team. These virtues, plus the very special skills of the likes of the immaculate Vertonghen; the realization by Dembele of his full potential; the increasing stature of Eriksen as a playmaker second to none in the EPL and Kane being, well, Kane, all came together against Juventus to enable such a credible result, DESPITE some questionable selections, which could have proved costly. Well done Spurs. =D> =D>

I guess its lucky you are not the Spurs manager then,mat. =;
Alderweireld has been out for 3 months with a hamstring injury.....so you would put him straight back into the team to play Juventus ?......he wasn't even on the plane to Italy.....also,Sanchez played pretty well I thought.
Rose has only played 5 EPL games all season and is currently not 100% fit due to a knee injury.....so you would put him straight back into the team to play Juventus ? When fully fit and his head is fully focused he would be a better option than Davies but currently he isn't !
Agreed Aurier is a disaster but neither him or Trippier are great options at right back.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion but I think you should stick to your current role of advising Alan Pardew his tactics and team selection at West Brom ! ;)

Gee thanks. :D But you will note, dear friend, I am always prepared to express my opinion BEFORE the outcome of the matter under discussion is known! ;) [-X [-X Go on, be a devil, and try it sometime; it's great fun. \:D/ \:D/

Meantime, enough about this match, although I do look forward to your publishing your selection idea for the Spurs team, for the return leg, PRIOR to announcement of Pochettino's selection , and the result of the match. [-X

Moving on, since The Mouth appears to be having a great deal more difficulty than the Spurs Manager, in deciding his best team, would you care to express IN ADVANCE your opinion of what you consider would be Utd's best formation & team, for the first leg of their Champions League match? :-"

Your obsession with Mourinho meant you "took your eye off the ball" regarding Alderweireld and Rose.....admit it !! :D

Spuds team for the second leg:Lloris:Trippier,Sanchez,Vertonghen,Dier,Davies:Son,Dembele,Eriksen,Ali:Kane

United team:deGea:Valencia,Jones,Rojo,Young:Matic,Pogba,Lingard,Mata:Sanchez,Lukaku......though I fear Smalling will play instead of Rojo and maybe Martial instead of Mata or Lingard ??

Easy,peasy......no need to take 7 hours typing up the equivalent of Encyclopedia Brittania in nearly every post..... ;)

Reckon the PSG fans must be wondering what the hell happened :lol:

Answer ...... you can control a game all you like and you can play all the flicks and tricks in the book, but if you don't do the BASICS you aint gonna win anything worth winning

Scoring 8 in a tin pot league might be good for confidence but it means nowt when you play against a team that plays at a better standard (see Basel & Porto?)
