1. Not The Abysmal Showing I'd Been Promised

A confession of sorts to begin with, as it's generally best to air these things at the outset – I did not view the game live, so by the time the telly-box re-ran the binge in its entirety I was already well aware of the outcome.

Hmm, difficult to know what to make of that one, what? A bit of a struggle to find the delicate phrase that sums it all up. Not that my old man, AANP Senior, had much trouble, mind. "Rubbish," was his pithy assessment as the bell sounded, and I suppose it's hard to disagree.

1. The Central Midfield

Being an enlightened sort, who is all for a new wheeze once in a while, I have no problem with the modern concept of ‘change'.

1. Aggression, or Lack Thereof

Should any passing strangely politely enquire whether we have the ability to field two separate elevens they can now be answered fairly emphatically in the affirmative, the evidence being paraded on the pitch at kick-off. Eleven completely different pairs of legs, from those that did the business in Turin, and if pre kick-off our glorious leader allowed himself a private moment of self-congratulation on the fact, who could have begrudged him?

1. Squad Depth Like A Military Parade

Pre kick-off, our glorious leader made every change conceivable to the starting eleven, which, he'll be delighted to know, was fine by me. Bigger fish await, and all that. Amongst other things this gave the opportunity to parade to the watching world the full extent of our squad depth, as one understands some of our foreign cousins are rather fond of doing, as if to say to neighbours, "Don't you get any ideas, you bounders.

There will be a cheery whistle on the lips today no doubt, as this was a vastly more satisfactory pitstop than Saturday's rot. Not perfect, but on the scale of things this was far closer to click-the-heels-and-hat-at-a-jaunty-angle than morning-after-grogginess-and-for-the-love-of-all-things-please-close-those-infernal-curtains.

1. Off the Boil

No doubt about it, that performance stank like the rancid contents of last week's lunch, left to its own devices in the AANP refrigerator. No man (bar the boy Davinson Sanchez) escapes censure. Despite having successfully negotiated the tests of Dortmund, Liverpool and Real blinking Madrid for goodness sake, by the oh so devastatingly subtle technique of sitting back and then countering like the dickens, the slightly more dubious ploy yesterday appeared to be to go into it toe to toe, and trust that good would triumph over evil.

1. Lethargy, Via His Master's Voice

A tad difficult to burn with passion either way about this one. Our heroes sleep-walked into a lead, snoozed through to half-time and then sleep-walked into defeat. At no point before, during or after did anyone appear to care a hang for the thing, which had all the intensity and passion of a toddler's morning lie-down.

1. The Eriksen-Modric Fantasy Clash

I don't mind admitting that the heart skipped a lovestruck beat when I saw Messrs Modric and Eriksen line up in opposition in the centre of the Bernabeu. It was like one of those classic films in which an inspired casting director has called in a few favours and pulled a few strings, with the result that he has managed to obtain the services of two absolute giants of the silver screen, to peddle their muck alongside one another for the first time.

According to The S*n, Manchester United want Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose this summer and could make a bid of £40m + Luke Shaw to land his signature.

Former star blasts Tottenham for 'huge mistake', says they have a 'small club mentality'

Former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp has criticised the club for their decision to sell Kyle Walker.

The England international has been very good for Manchester City so far this season and Redknapp believes that selling him to a title rival shows Tottenham’s ‘small club mentality’.

The Londoners signed Serge Aurier as Walker’s replacement and although the former PSG defender has impressed so far, Walker’s attacking ability is still a big miss for Pochettino.
