    I'm not gong to go through threads of people slating Spurs on how crap we are because it annoys me.

    So this is a thread for guys/gals that appreciate what we have achieved in the last 2 years since 'Arry took the reigns... I am one of these people that are thinking O well look where we got in the CL, we got further than Arsenal, we beat Inter Milan, we beat AC Milan, and yes we got out beaten by a brilliant Real Madrid side, that even with 11 men on the field we still wouldn't have won (IMO)

    So well done to everyone involved in the club for getting us this far, and lets show Real how good we can be if we perform well, and lets focus on the league and getting us into the CL next year...

    COYS!!!

    EDIT: would just like to add, its not as bad of a result as Inters 5-2 defeat at home!

    You've done us proud Yiddos!!! What an incredible journey. Lets not let it fizzle out a weeks time at The Lane and go out with one last famous victory against the greatest club in the World. Thrashing Twente and Werder Breman was fantastic, made them both look like second rate clubs. Then the two Milan clubs? Wow. The 3-1 win against Inter and the 1-0 win against Milan are two of the greatest performances I've ever seen.

    It's been a fantastic distraction, and we've firmly planted ourselves in the minds and even some hearts of European football.

    Couldn't think of a better manager in Harry, and a better set of players to support on such a great journey. Every dog has it's day, and we've had 4 or 5 of them in this competition.

    Serious business of the run in and getting back into the competition now. Stoke City is just as big as the match last night now. Not to mention certain games against Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea! It's still gonna be a fookin exciting end of the season.

    Cheers Yiddos!

    Good article from Jim White

    Gareth Bale was putting a brave face on things. There was some defiance among the wearied supporters gathering at Madrid airport. Someone even remembered that Real had once lost a two-legged tie after winning the first 5-1. But the fact is, everyone knows it is over: Spurs' Champions League foray is now in the past tense.
    There was no doubt it was going to be hard in the Bernabeu, but none of the optimistic platoons setting forth from north London could have imagined it was going to end up like that. Spurs didn't just lose against Jose Mourinho's team, they were hammered, humiliated, brushed aside with an ease bordering on contempt. That is what must hurt most for Harry Redknapp. After beating the two Milan clubs on the way to this meeting, he thought he was developing a side to be respected in the upper echelons of the European game. His own reputation had swollen alongside that of his team. Once regarded as little more than a chirpy chancer he was presenting himself as a fine tactician and man manager. Now both team and boss were swatted aside, treated like cannon fodder. That was not fun.
    Redknapp would have known that to match Mourinho, he had to have everything go right for his team. Madrid have such resources that if one player is unavailable or another doesn't spark, they can rely on a third to do his job. Last night they brought on as substitutes Miguel Higuain and Kaka. And Karim Benzema didn't even feature. Spurs, meanwhile, brought on Sebastian Bassong and Jermain Defoe. For Spurs to work, Redknapp needed the whole collective to purr. Every one of his top performers had to be at the top of their game. Instead, Aaron Lennon took sick, Peter Crouch went bonkers and Rafael van der Vaart - for so long the creative well-spring of the side - played as if someone had poured sand into his boots. Clearly unfit, instead of exacting revenge van der Vaart merely reminded his former employers that they were wise to move him on.
    Crouch, though, was the one who was particularly culpable. A player of some experience, his mental disintegration was as bizarre as it was unexpected. Not remotely renowned as a dirty centre forward, he suddenly,on this his biggest game in a Spurs shirt, started sliding in as if on a mission to conduct onfield surgery using only his studs. After receiving a yellow card for a reckless intervention in a pointless part of the pitch, he repeated the act five minutes later in an equally innocuous position. Since the entire Spurs tactical plan away from home in Europe has been based on finding the big man alone up front - a plan that worked brilliantly in the San Siro last month - his end signalled the end of the visitors' attacking possibilities.
    From then on, Spurs were undone. And no matter how indomitable Michael Dawson was as he repelled wave after wave of Ronaldo-inspired attacks, destruction was the only likely outcome. How relieved Redknapp must have been to hear the final whistle. At the rate his team was unravelling, they were on a course to ship seven.
    The question for Redknapp is where does he go from here. Rousing his battered, dispirited and weary players for the increasingly forlorn-looking battle for fourth place in the Premier League will take all his powers of persuasion. Which is why next week's second leg matters to him. He cannot afford his players to surrender. They need to remind themselves that they belong in company of the best in order to fight for their invitation to return next season. Crumbling at home would signal that the battle was over. They are not going to win the tie, but winning the game would restore a belief that was visibly ebbing last night, even as Gomes allowed Ronaldo's shot to slip out of his grasp for Madrid's fourth goal.
    The cruel gag instantly doing the text message circuit after the final whistle last night asked what the similarity was between Spurs and Heather Mills. For both, came back the answer, the second leg is just for show. Actually, for Spurs, it is a lot more than that. Yes, the end result may well already be decided. Yes, Jose Mourinho can contemplate for a second year running how he might out-fox his former employers in the semi final. But for what it means to the rest of Spurs' season, for the effect it could have on their morale, next Wednesday's second leg formalities will provide much more than a poignant coda to the adventure, a fond hint of what might have been. The game represents the most important foregone conclusion they have ever faced.

    For a team with no hsitory in the competition we have done fantastically well. It was an unfortunate result last night, but that doesn't take away from how well we did to make it here. Topped a tough group, the toughest of the 4 PL sides, beat the second most successful European side in the round of 16 without conceding a goal, and scored heaps of goals in the process getting further than Arsenal. Now all we can do is try to get a result at WHL next week, keep it 11v11 and show Real what could have happened in the first leg, just show them our football. That's what we'll be remembered for.
