Technically they have already, they beat the reigning champions Real Madrid. They beat them.

What. What? They beat THE Real Madrid?

They're not doing so badly themselves - unbeaten in 13 (12 wins and a draw)

That doesnít make sense, they lost the first leg and that wasnít 13 games ago

I still think Juventus will get through. Dybala is back and scored a great goal yesterday, he's capable of turning the tie round on his own. Matuidi being back in midfield will ensure they aren't dominated like before as well. Got quite a bit of confidence in them.

I think they will be just as concerned with Kane / Son. Dybala great player though. I think it wouldn't be a surprise if either team went through, really is finely balanced.

Technically, if it finished 0 - 0 on Wednesday, Spurs go through. So yes, we did win the first leg.  ;D

We won't make any big signings this season and we will go back to being a top4 club.

Only applies if the ref if conned by it. If not then the player can't be done. It's a ridiculous rule.

Yup, bizarre rule that means the punishment for diving is a yellow if the ref sees it, but a two game ban if he doesn't.

If youíve got a number of top class players, you tend to use trophies and achievements to sort them out. And....well, you know. I mean Matt Le Tissier was pretty awesome but youíd likely get laughed out of whatever room you were in if you compared him to other PL legendary attacking midfielders.

Kane hasnít really done...anything. Apart from score lots of goals (yeah I know...).

But yeah, at risk of derailing the thread again Iíll stop. But just for clarity, anyone even comparing Harry Kane to Dennis Bergkamp let alone trying to argue that heís better is completely batshit crazy or stupider than stupid.

Can see Juventus beating them by one goal Wednesday. Despite Spurs coming out of that game with a lot of deserved credit they could of easily been 3-0 or 3-1 down at half time.

Really? I'd rather have them than any of the other English sides:

City - would probably beat us 10-8 on aggregate.
United - defensive, scrappy shite with them getting a jammy last minute handball.
Chelsea - if they get through then they'll have proved they can stop attacking quality.

Spurs are dangerous but over 2 legs I don't think they'd have the experience to knock us out. The way they set up would play into our hands more.

I'd have Bergkamp over Kane because I think he was just far better to watch. While Kane is a brilliant goalscorer and definitely the striker I'd choose from another PL team I don't think there's much about him to love watching. It's precise, robotic and mightily effective but where's the moments of magic that we love to watch football for? Pretty much why I'd never choose Ronaldo over Messi.

Ref saw it so it won't get retrospective punishment, that's been the rule all season.
So the ref saw it, and didn't book him for no apparent reason, and that incompetence now means Alli escapes all punishment?

dunno mate...their divey players ensured a 2 leg victory over us in the league.  Don't get me wrong, I back our team over theirs every day of the week. Just as long as the dice aren't loaded

Assuming Klopp wanted Kane, got him, and set us up to play to his strengths, we'd win a ton of trophies with his goals (no disrespect to any of our current players, especially Bobby). Kane at a big club is terrifying. Kane as Le Tissier is just an annoyance.

Agree with that. But itís a strange comparision to begin with, as Bergkamp was a playmaker much more than a striker - in the premier league anyway - and a very different type of player.

Imagine this season with him at Chelsea or the Mancs instead of Morata/Lukaku?
Would he be any more effective than he is at Spurs? The whole Spurs set-up is geared to bring the best out of him. Would Hazard sacrifice his own glory for the sake of Kane? Is Lukaku the problem or is it, Mourinho? I don't think Lukaku is holding ManU back - they just don't seem particularly keen to get the ball to him quickly. I'll admit I haven't seen too much of ManU because they're not a good watch - so bloody pedestrian.

So, who knows how he'd perform away from Spurs. I'm sure he could be very good, as he's a very good striker, but I'm significantly short of being terrified.
