Twitter reacts as Spurs humbled by deadly Dortmund


Tottenham endured a difficult night in Germany, going down 3-0 to Dortmund in the Europa League last 16 first leg.

The visitors started brightly, but were soon put through their paces by a deadly Dortmund side that looked like scoring whenever in possession.

The Germans scored once before the break and twice after, while Spurs never really had a sniff. Heung-Min Son debatably should have had a penalty at 1-0, but that’s about as close as Mauricio Pochettino’s men came.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.


  1. The only problem I have with tonight is, if he wanted to rest players why not rest them on Sunday when we play Villa. Tonight was a good chance to see how we would play against a champion league team. Don’t want to take anything away from Tottenham as they have been brilliant all season. But this was a lesson in football when you mess about with the team. And we still need a bloody new striker.

  2. Certainly shows how weak the squad is once you take the 1st XI out. Encouraging the kids is fine but to throw them all in together against a team of Dortmund’s class was a bit cruel. Feel sorry for the Spurs fans that paid good money to get to Germany only to watch the team get humiliated. Let’s hope the “rested” players can do the necessary on Sunday.

  3. So that is 3 on the spin without a win.A leopard never changes its spots and I fear that we will struggle at Villa and from now onwards.MP is a disgrace as he has not treated Dortmund or the Europa League with any respect.Hoping for a reaction on Sunday at Villa but won’t hold my breath.
