AC Milan

It wasn't pretty. At time you found your heart concealed in your mouth as the minutes ticked on and the game remained goalless. Milan came out as I'd expected; gave us little space in which to operate with and played the game in our half. A much stronger performance from that of the one back in the San Siro where we looked a lot more comfortable.

Spurs, on the other hand, found themselves chasing most of the game.. and the shadows of the Rossoneri. This was the first time in the Champions League in which we were favourites for the game. Despite being told to "attack 'em from the off" the boys looked nervy and unwilling to over commit. Strange how, inadvertently, the 1-0 lead almost worked against us.

Desperate for a goal, Milan engineered and dictated much more of the play. Although, they found shots on goal restricted with nothing clear cut opening up for them. This, due to the back 4 sticking their necks out and getting at Milan and Sandro helping out to protect Gomes between the sticks.

Sandro already looks a star. Right now. If this boy continues impressing he could go a long way in the lilywhite and sit in our midfield for years to come. Absolutely fantastic again tonight.

Heat-in-your-mouth stuff. It's in our DNA. It's the Tottenham way and how we love to make thing's harder for ourselves. The game showed that we can keep clean sheets when there is so much at stake and congratulations to the boys who battled all day and found their way through.

I heard Gattuso was found punching his kitchen floor back in Milan after the result?

Barca, Madrid, United? Naa, I'd take Schalke in the Quarters.
