Tottenham vs. Man City analysis: Spurs in the driver’s seat? | Champions League

  • Published on Apr 9, 2019
  • Alejandro Moreno, Sebastian Salazar, Steve Nicol and Craig Burley of ESPN FC offer post-match analysis for the first leg of Tottenham vs. Manchester City in the quarterfinals of UEFA Champions League 2019, which was won by Spurs thanks to a goal from Son Heung-Min. They discuss whether Mauricio Pochettino’s squad is in the driver’s seat, how much Harry Kane's injury might hurt, and the task facing Pep Guardiola and Man City to avoid another UCL collapse.

    Why talk about city so much when the yiddos ass raped them

    Poor wee Stevie Nicol. So angry and bitter - pissed off and pissed up - about seeing his Liverpool spending the past decade trailing Spurs in the table at the end of most seasons. And now they've gone and opened their incredible new stadium that makes Anfailed look like a dump. It's left him unable to say much worthwhile about Spurs.
    Moreno is just a complete imbecile trying to pander to a broader audience by talking up the bigger clubs rather than offering us proper insight into why something unusual happened or how an underdog overcame the odds. Pathetically weak commentary.
    As for the fat fella, Burpley, sweating off his daily deep-fried Mars Bar and ten pints of Tennants, don't pay much heed to his blather. A Chelsea greaser old boy who hates Spurs as all Chelsea chavs are required to do.

    These guys are in the bag for City. They failed to acknowledge that all Tottenham have to do is score once then City had to score 3. That won't happen with Toby and Jan back there.

    Why are they making Sons goal into a lucky thing? Bad defending and bad goalkeeping? Why not just admitting that Son is a rising star?

    what about the fact that it says the hand should move towards the ball and not the ball towards the hand. The problem is the referees aren't smart and educated enough to interpret the simple language of the laws of the game. Has to be intentional and hand towards the ball and not the ball towards the hand. Its clearly written in the rule book.

    Guardiola 3-1 in the return. Pressure is right on him. He has missed Xavi Iniesta and Lionel Messi very badly. To be classified as an elite coach he needs to demonstrate her can win a CL sans these three legends. It should be noted he failed to do it at Bayern M who like MC had a very tasty roster.

    Tottenham did what Financial Fair Play couldn't/didn't/hasn't/won't.
    Clicked in for analysis, and got "12 reasons why City let Spurs win" and nothing about what Spurs actually did to win (i.e. tactically nullifying City's firepower superiority, defending as a unit, letting City have possession in low-risk situations to rest, etc.).

    I think this is best Spurs can get. They lack accuracy in their passing and shooting, and i believe in big games such as these for the Title/Major Cups, the accuracy is a difference. Very Good Performance hope they qualify, but next season they need to invest in passing master class, explosive wingers.

    Tottenham is politically unpopular compared to man city. City is a liberals wet dream, tons of blacks and Tottenham's game winning scorer is an Asian, the "wrong" kind of minority. The Jewish media machine wants professional sports to be dark as night.

You’ve been in America too long mate, the Sun has got to your head. He was sliding in, not “lying on his back”. And for Burley’s argument that he “did it correctly later on”, that was an entirely different situation. Utter mongs.

    These 4 morons (though Nicol's a legend of course! ;) )! If you're busting a gut to to block a shot and the ball STRIKES YOUR ARM, it still struck your arm. Which isn't a penalty as it's totally unintentional. Fuck rule changes, as well. I know how the game should be played, I don't need suits at FIFA to continually make things more confusing / open to misinterpretation. Rose did nothing wrong in what was a perfectly natural and understandable action. 'Like' if you vote me for leader of the free world.

    City played with fear which is confusing. Spurs played with nothing to lose which is why they got injured players. City should win this easily if they score in the first half of the 2nd leg otherwise if Spurs holds on to the 70th minute it might go to the City player’s heads because they tend to get nervous in Champions league latter stages
