Why did Niklas Süle do Serge Gnabry like that?! 😂😩Who kicked his hat-trick ball into the crowd?! 😭😭 pic.twitter.com/hyeK6ditzD— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:06 pmRIO FERDINAND has described this night for Spurs as being “DESTROYED” – and you can’t argue with that.He says Poch needs to look in the mirror and do some soul searching.Before tonight it had already been a difficult season, with a defeat here to Newcastle in the league and an embarrassing Carabao Cup exit to Colchester standing out.But this is something else. If you conceded seven goals at home you’re not on the ropes but down on the canvas and facing the count. Simply world class 🔴⚪#TOTFCB #MiaSanMia pic.twitter.com/qEsw35FFzx— FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:11 pmFORMER Spurs player Chris Waddle says Tottenham’s defence needs a total overhaul.He told BBC 5Live: “Tottenham’s defence is not good enough. It needs a good overhaul. It needs a complete change. Maybe even go three at the back. “This is not working for Spurs, it’s not been working for weeks but this system is wrong. The tactics are wrong. Bayern Munich have been able to take the whole back four out of the game.”Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:09 pmGREAT scenes after the final whistle if you are a Bayern Munich fan.Serge Gnabry is understandably the focus – but his team-mates are celebrating in a rather weird way. bants 87 – Lewandowski again.⚪ #THFC 2-6 #FCBayern 🔴— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 1, 2019 83 – Goal for Bayern.⚪ #THFC 2-5 #FCBayern 🔴— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 1, 2019 WHAT A PLAYER! 🚀#TOTFCB 1-2 pic.twitter.com/xhBUUOTvIM— FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 8:47 pmSPURS 1 – 2 BAYERN – GOAL!!!45 mins: It was coming from Bayern and it’s that man Lewandowski!It looks like Spurs have dealt with the trouble but they fail to get it clear with Ndombele mostly to blame.Lewandowski then turns on the edge of the box and pings it into the bottom corner.And that’s half-time!Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 8:45 pmSPURS 1 – 1 BAYERN44 mins: Gnabry puts a stinger onto the hands of Lloris as his cross from the left turns into a fierce shot. The Spurs keeper did well to get that clear of danger.Coutinho fancies his chances with a shot from range but it’s blocked.When it comes back to the ex-Liverpool ace – who’s only lost twice in 13 appearances against Spurs – he’s brought down by Sissoko who’s booked for his scissor tackle.Lewandowski steps up to take the 30-yard free-kick but his strike hits the wall and goes behind for a corner.Load more entries… 88 – Another.⚪ #THFC 2-7 #FCBayern 🔴— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:13 pmBAYERN MUNICH are billing themselves as World Class after that. Fair. TOTTENHAM were taught a lesson in North London by Arsenal old boy Serge Gnabry to pile the pressure on Mauricio Pochettino.Gnabry netted four brilliant goals as Spurs were hit for seven in a scoreline that did not flatter Bayern in the slightest.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:30 pmPOCHETTINO has spoken and – perhaps unsurprisingly – he says his team are “very upset”. Here’s what he told BT Sport: “I don’t need too much time to explain. We played 30 mins well, started well, pressing high. But we were unlucky that we conceded in the first minute of the half.“They were very clinical. After we scored the penalty for two we had chances to score the third. But from the 83rd and 88th minute we conceded three more goals.“In football it can happen. Every single touch went in. We are very disappointed and very upset but we have to stay together. I think we are strong in our mentality.“Maybe you are bored about my speech but football is today not yesterday. It is always is about the show. You have to do it today and tomorrow. It is not about experiences and what happened three months ago.“We are disappointed. Every single touch from Bayern was clinical. They scored with every touch. It is tough to accept. You have to move on.“This type of situation you have to face. It is tough and you need to be strong and keep going. Stay together, help each other and be all together. When you receive this type of result it is important to bounce back and believe in yourself. It is the only way to recover.”Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:27 pmTHE SUN’S Neil Ashton was here at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to witness that hiding.You can read his take on it here as he writes how Spurs were “battered” and made to “look like novices”. Is this a job threatening result for Pochettino?@RioFerdy5: To be destroyed like this.. He’s going to have to look in the mirror and do something.A night that provokes soul searching at White Hart Lane. pic.twitter.com/b9XFl7dS6g— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:03 pmSPURS 2 BAYERN 7 – REACTIONWe’ve got all the reaction coming after a stunning night in North London…Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:52 pmSPURS 2 – 7 BAYERNFT: Boos ring out at the final whistle as Spurs lose by SEVEN goals to two.Quite an incredible night in North London.The Bayern fans seem almost as happy as those in the Arsenal half of North London who saw former player Serge Gnabry score FOUR of those Bayern goals.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:46 pmSPURS 2 – 7 BAYERN – GOAL!!!88 mins: Gnabry scores AGAIN. Yes that’s right – AGAIN.He gets his fourth of the night and Bayern’s SEVENTH after being given far too much time on the edge of the box.Incredible. Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:45 pmSPURS 2 – 6 BAYERN – GOAL!!!87 mins: This is just embarrassing now.Lewandowski strikes the ball with the inside of his foot first time from a Coutino pass and it shoots into the bottom corner.Lloris could do nothing there.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:42 pmSPURS 2 – 5 BAYERN – GOAL!!!83 mins: It’s Gnabry again and that’s the hat-trick.Quite amazing – and far too easy. A long ball from the back get between Vertonghen and Aurier and Gnabry races clear and keeps his composure to beat Lloris.Bayern fans are singing: “It’s coming home!” Good on them.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:34 pmSPURS 2 – 4 BAYERN77 mins: Spurs fans are trying to rally their team but it’s not having much of an impact.The arrival of Moura and Eriksen seem only to have served to make this game more disjointed.Bayern fans meanwhile are protesting over the cost of tickets to this game. According to their banner “TWENTY IS PLENTY” and you can’t argue with that.Eriksen fires over.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:27 pmSPURS 2 – 4 BAYERN – WHAT AN ESCAPE!70 mins: Danny Rose has tripped Coman in the box and surely it’s a penalty.But the referee waves it away – and VAR ain’t interested – even though he clearly caught the Bayern winger as he turned back inside.A real let off that.Lucas Moura is on for Dele.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:22 pmSPURS 2 – 4 BAYERN60 mins: Sissoko snatches at a decent chance for Spurs and it flies well over the bar.Pochettino is now starting to roll the dice. He replaces Ndombele with Eriksen.And the Dane makes a quick impact with Neuer tipping his shot over the bar.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:18 pmSPURS 2 – 4 BAYERN – GOAL!!!60 mins: And Kane buries it in the bottom corner, just beyond the reach of Neuer. Great pen.And he then runs to pick the ball up and get this restarted.Game on!Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:16 pmSPURS 1 – 4 BAYERN – PENALTY TO SPURS59 mins: Kane to take.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:13 pmSPURS 1 – 4 BAYERN – GOAL!!!55 mins: Unreal – it’s Gnabry again! Winks loses the ball in midfield and the ex-Arsenal man beats Lloris once more.He then follows it up with a cheeky “stirring the pot” celebration. If that first goal didn’t make him an Arsenal legend – the second one will.Quite incredible. And Spurs in real trouble. Serge Gnabry stirring the pot in North London! The former Arsenal man puts Bayern Munich 4-1 up at Spurs 😮 pic.twitter.com/rragGU3NcZ— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:12 pmSPURS 1 – 3 BAYERN – GOAL!!!54 mins: Gnabry is an Arsenal legend!He robs the ball from Aurier on the Spurs right and then just runs at the Tottenham defence.He makes it look so easy but he gets into the box and then shoots across Lloris into the far corner.The pressure really is on Spurs now to make something happen!Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:09 pmSPURS 1 – 2 BAYERN46 mins: Dele gets a sight of goal for Spurs but his first touch pushes him wider than he’d like and his shot doesn’t have enough on it to trouble Neuer.Still a good, open game this but neither asserting themselves just yet. It’s on Spurs though to make something happen.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 9:04 pmSPURS 1 – 2 BAYERN46 mins: We’re back under way here and Kane is quickly in the book for a high boot.Not a great start.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 8:49 pmSPURS 1 – 2 BAYERNHT: What a half that was and a sting in the tail from Lewandowski as Bayern coming from behind to lead here at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 📆 2015: Serge Gnabry deemed not good enough for West Brom📆 2019: Serge Gnabry scores four goals as Bayern hammer Spurs 7-2 in the Champions League👀📈 pic.twitter.com/7UWWaUTOhL— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:22 pmTOTTENHAM players are still in the changing room – presumably getting a grilling from Poch after that.They can also have a grilling from me with my PLAYER RATINGS.Spoiler alert: No one got higher than a six.The worst of the bunch for me were Serge Aurier and Harry Winks.Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:16 pmTOTTENHAM’S social media started losing the will as those late goals flew in.The fifth goal warranted three words, the sixth needed two and by that seventh goal – it needed just one word: “Another”.
