Goosebumps

When the players walked out onto the pitch, all I felt were goosebumps accompanied by the occasional shiver. What a brilliant night it was going to be! I could feel it. White flags graced with our cockerel waving in unison, almost communist in display.

Rain and a slippery pitch were in order for what would turn out to be our return to “glory, glory nights” at the Lane. Spurs were in control from the start and really never looked back. Peter Crouch nabbed a hat-trick using his head, physically and literally, and Defoe had a controversial “handball” which led to a goal (it didn’t matter, Spurs were going to win regardless). Bale put on another blistering display and had a hand (or foot) in every goal scored. Breathtaking stuff!

So our club is no longer part of the “underachievers” ranks. We’ve weathered the storm and molested Young Boys on our path to placing the Tottenham Hotspur name between the elite teams of Europe. How about that?

Making history will be no easy feat though. Barcelona and the Arse have walked away with the easier group fixtures, while we’ll have to face none other than the European champions, Inter Milan (who also completed the treble last season taking home the league, cup and Champions League titles), Dutch champions FC Twente, and German powerhouse Werder Bremen. Wow! This is one rude welcoming party!

Congratulations to the squad and Harry Redknapp on this achievement. Nobody can doubt Tottenham’s desire to play amongst the elite. Nobody can doubt Harry’s ability to bring out the best in our squad. Right man for the right job at the right time.

Goosebumps again.

    Not as bad a draw as it might have been. We could certainly qualify with Inter from this one.
    Even Inter under Benitez might not be as formidablke as last year under Mourinho.
    Good summing of the overall situation

    You know how I like to stress lol

    I do agree though, we have plenty of quality in the squad to push forward. FC Twente’s manager has gone off to another team, and Inter need to readjust to Benitez. The latter should be a good fit with the Italians IMO; Rafa does have experience playing Spurs so they could benefit from that as well.

    Nobody believed we could get 4th. Nobody believed we could qualify. nobody believed we can go all the way to the group stages.
    But!!!! WE DID WE DID WE DID WE DID WE DID WE DID WE DID
    and now nobody believes we can progress. So is it enough for us did we achieve our dream. do we aim only to get in here again next year and hope for an easier draw so we can go further!
    Some thoughts for you to get stressed about el wehbi

    Great read!

    I just hope that the dust settles before we face a Wigan side that has recently started to believe.

    Saying that, it was Hartlepool that gave them belief, therefore, maybe I shouldn’t feel too worried about today’s game.

    COYS!!!

      Cheers Jaymes,

      Let’s just say that it’s a relief that Wigan are coming to Lane for this fixture. I like Martinez and I think he’s a good manager; however, it will take a lot more effort from him to try and win at the Lane today, I hope!

      COYS!!!!!!!
