I once said Patrick Berger was crap during a Liverpool/Chelsea game in the 90's and he went on to score a hat trick!

That goal should be enough. Out of jail.

Get in there!

I can't believe the score line at the end of 90 tbh, spurs had passed the ball around and moved well, but this persistence with playing a high line has really undone us tonight, especially with gallas's pace!

That goal should kill inter off though.

It wouldn't be spurs if we didn't do it the hard way, very happy to be in the draw for last 8 and have a real shot a some sliverwear

I think the writings on the wall of some of the current squad and if we do qualify for the champions league investment is needed in some key areas.

We look so short up top!

Congrats on getting through just a general question why do away goals count in extra time surely 120>90 mins is rather unfair Erm

Nice to see you boys have realized why no one cared when Adebayor/Gallas left us OK

i felt adebayor was our best player when he was here on loan, and i wondered what everyone was talking about, but now i see how lazy he is

James please keep it clean, using stars etc to trick the swear filter is against the house rules

Am delighted that last night's result has permenantly dispelled the myth of Spurs being a one-man team.....erm, wait a second!

All ribbing aside, you're through and surely in with a decent shout.

North London final anyone?

I suppose the thinking is that each team has had 90 mins to play at home, and by giving one team an extra 30 mins at home is unfair on the other team so they allow the away goals rule in ET.............

You seem to be displeased that Spurs didn't beat Lyon more comfortably..............
You also appear displeased that you didn't hammer Inter Milan................

You do realise that you are a Spurs fan and not a Barcelona fan, don't you?!

not at all, im dissapointed that we just arent playing well at all. overcoming lyon and inter is fantastic, but in both games with come within inches and seconds of being eliminated and going out without a whimper.

weve drawn basel who beat zenit and in recent history, beat man united.

im gunna make a prediction and say that winners will be those who progress from the benfica, newcastle tie

Dislike Ade intensely. Even last year he wasn't as good as JD (11 starts, 11 goals).

The biggest problem Ade has is AVB. It looks like Andre picks his team based on form and fitness, so when Ade and Defoe are both fit then JD gets in. Under Harry, it always seemed like he picked the names first (or maybe he picked the ones who gave him the biggest share of their appearance fee and donated it to his dog...)

Sooner Ade goes the better. Would be nice to replace him with Damiao, but I think thats a Levy myth to keep the fans happy. We'll probably sign someone younger and cheaper with a greater resell value (my money is on Connor Wickham from Sunderland)

I think you've hot the nail on the head there mate, Damiao is a myth, we've been linked with him for the last 6 windows and the transfer is not any closer to getting done. As much as I want a player of his talent, potentail and class i just dont see Levy putting his hand in his pocket for 20m+ for one player. Liverpool have been linked with him in recent months so if they can do a deal with West Ham to off load big Andy i can see that move happening.

So champions league football is yet again a pipe dream for Spurs after missing out by just 1 point... where did all go wrong this season? What do we have to do to make the CL next season? Can we keep hold of Bale without top European football at the lane?

IMO we lost our form after the home leg against Inter and it never really returned the defeat by Fulham and Draw with Wigan is what ultimately cost us 4th/3rd place this season.

Agree olly another failed transfer window IMO everyone could see that spurs needed a goal scorer with Ady out of form and Defoe injured yet we failed to sign one again. A token effort to engage with damiao to appease the fans. Only have ourselves to blame.

The Fulham game killed us.

Overall tho, it was an encouraging season. I feel better coming out of this one than I did coming out of the last one. Bale will stay, but we need a major striker to break the top 4. I love Defoe, but his time is over, Ade has been so poor this year, we'll do well to give him away. Will be interesting to see who we get as I also think we need a creative midfielder as Dembele is good, but tends to hold the ball too long, which isn't good when you have pacy players looking to make runs in behind. Lot of work to do, and we need to spend around 50m to break the top 4.

The worrying thing from a Tottenham perspective is that all the clubs around them look prepared to spend big this year. It's all well and good keeping Bale, but you had Bale this year and didn't get top 4 and it's more than likely the clubs around Spurs will get serious investment.

Chelsea will likely spend a lot, Manchester City have already spent £47 million and probably will spend more and Arsenal are also saying they're prepared to spend big.

If Spurs got offered anywhere near 60m-80m reported for Bale, I'd take it for sure. Good player but he isn't going to win a title for Spurs and I think its better to be able to buy five really good players rather than keep one who is going to blow your wage structure anyway.

Paris Saint-Germain want Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas to replace Carlo Ancelotti as their new boss.

Villas-Boas has emerged as the prime candidate after a series of discussions between PSG president Nasser El-Khelaifi and his advisers.

The 35-year-old Spurs coach earned recognition last season for the way he rebuilt his reputation after an ill-fated spell at Chelsea

Apparently AVB has a 10m euro release clause if that's true id expect the following to happen

1) Ancelotti to Real Madrid
2) AVB to PSG
3) Laudrup to Spurs

AVB would be a fool to move on so quickly, that would only be a year at Porto, less than a year at Chelsea and then a year at Tottenham. Better to have a couple of years of success at Spurs and them move on, if that's what he wants.

It is an interesting question of who PSG go for if Ancelotti leaves as expected. Benitez was the person who I'd thought would get it, but he's at Napoli now. I can see PSG moving for Klopp, but I'd be sceptical of him accepting a move to PSG.

Alan Curbishley? Whistle
