Balague's tip to beat Madrid: Leave out vdv

I'm sure the name needs no explanation. Guillem Balague, Spanish football's answer to the late Andy Gray, has had his precious words of advice for our boys as they travel to Madrid. Whilst watching Madrid fall flat at home against Sporting and, at the same time, see Mourinho's 9 year unbeaten home run slip away faster than West Ham's lead on Saturday, Balague tweeted his insight into what he believes Spurs have to do to stand a chance against Los Blancos.

"Spurs should look to exploit the space behind centre backs. Clearly their main weakness. If fit,Crouch, Lennon and Defoe should start.No vdv

"Goodbye Mou 9year home record, goodbye Liga. 0-1 Sporting won.But steady,Spurs fans.U gonna c a different Madrid. Still very much favourites"

I never read to much into what's said pre-match. We just have to look at this as another game. It is vital that the back four and Gomes perform as well as they did on the latter trip to the San Siro. Whatever happens in Spain tomorrow night, this season we have played against some of the greatest names in world football. We have competed against some of the greatest players to ever grace a football pitch and have proven to the world that we are capable to cut it in the big league.

The Champions League has shown our progression as a club over the last few decades, and the fantastic building (or rebuilding) process that has taken place under the close eye of Levy and Redknapp.

But it doesn't have to end at this stage.
