Tottenham fans got a glimpse into the future last night – with all three of their summer signings on the pitch for the first time in their impressive 4-0 Champions League victory over Red Star Belgrade.

Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso played 90 and 86 minutes respectively, whilst Ryan Sessegnon marked his European debut with an excellent assist for Christian Eriksen’s goal.

The Frenchman was his usual swaggy-self in midfield, whilst Sessegnon showed encouraging signs on the left, but it was the performance of full debutant Lo Celso, that caught the eye.

From minute one, the Argentine looked in the mood to make up for lost time. Prior to this, Lo Celso had made just five substitute appearances since joining from Real Betis and has endured some frustrating times through injury, but the midfielder stole the show with an all-action display, which included his first Spurs goal in the Serbian capital.

After a campaign of ups and many downs, this was a bright point and the performance and result left fans excited about what’s to come.

Here are some of the best responses.



  1. Boys spurs beat nobody red star are bad all spurs fan should boycott stadium u til big muni is put in2 playing side we had our chances with these players not good enuf to win trophies we won’t win anything until levy spends big simple but dnt go 2 games an he won’t make muni off stadium spurs dnt need stadium to buy players owner is a billionaire fuck sake wake up

  2. Let’s try and make sense of this, along with all the comments to date.
    This was a top performance in Europe, a great performance in fact.
    It doesn’t matter that Red Star didn’t really show up, as you
    can only beat what’s in front of you, and the whole of Europe
    will be astonished at Spurs hammering a team that ‘never’
    gets beat at home, and barely concedes any goals!
    Anyway, after the horrible spectacle at the weekend when our
    team looked ‘gutless’, this was like manna from Heaven for Spurs fans!
    Lo Celso and Ndomele? Yes, already looking like the ‘present’, not just the
    future, of Spurs. Sessegnon? Brief cameo but highly promising and
    looks like he’ll be a great asset for us on the left. Foyth? looking sharp!
    So get a grip you gripers. Poch will turn our PL form around, and soon!
    Let’s hope Eriksen and Aurier are shipped out in January, however, and we
    buy a decent right back.

  3. Granted it looked like the Spurs of the last 2 or 3 years last night in Belgrade, but this only happened because Pocc put out the right and correct team, the one ALL fans have been pining for.He must stick to this starting 11 or pretty close to it; a return to picking Aurier and Eriksen and we will struggle so it’s fingers crossed that Pocc réalisés this, listens to the fans and hopefully we will turn the corner and return to winning ways.

  4. The point is that we had 11 players wanting to play for the shirt, all willing to work, tackle and play as a team, that is a must whoever we play. Why change, the only way to improve is to stick to this set up and get more game time together and put pressure on others in the squad to work to compete for places, and not rely on rotation to give game time to those weho don’t earn it. I’m so happy I could kiss the wife, maybe not that happy.
