Not our best game but…

WE FUCKING DID IT! into the quarter finals after beating AC Milan 1-0 on aggregate – great team spirit to keep them out (they were the best team on the night) – Sandro is my man of the match πŸ™‚

I’m so fucking happy right now…my voice is gone, but we’re through to the quarter finals!!!!


And let’s hope someone kicks the fuck outta Flamini – the dirty ex-gooner fouling scumbag…he doesn’t deserve to get out of London tonight


We pwn the San Siro! totally took AC Milan apart in the first half and should have had a goal (or 4). Stunning run and pass to Crouch who had the simplest of tap ins to score…:) 0-1 Spurs

Milan’s players were a disgrace – Flamini should have had a straight red for his 2 footed challenge on Corluka (on crutches but came back pitchside to see his mates win), Gattuso…where to start? he started on Joe Jordan, then had a go at Crouch, then seemed to lose it at the final whistle…

The aftermath of *spits* Flamini's horror tackle...

They were scared shitless of the thought of Bale, but Bale stayed home – Lennon showed his class tonight πŸ™‚ Crouch played his socks off – he must be dying on his feet right now. Van der Vaart could clearly be seen saying “Sorry boss, thought that one was in” when he came off – fuck, the whole team played so, so well – Assou-Ekotto was just awesome, Palacios and Sandro in midfield – lovely πŸ™‚ ‘Arry got it right all across the board.



Bring ’em back to the lane with 32,000 rather than just 4,000 supporters…

AC Milan – pwned

Tottenham enjoyed another memorable European night with a famous victory over AC Milan in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash.

After bossing the first half at the San Siro, Spurs needed two excellent saves from Heurelho Gomes and some resolute defending in a second 45 minutes which was dominated by the Italian hosts. It was a spiteful second half, too, with Vedran Corluka carried off with a nasty-looking injury following Mathieu Flamini’s two-footed challenge while Gennaro Gattuso was involved in a running battle with Peter Crouch and Spurs coach Joe Jordan.

However, it was Harry Redknapp’s side who had the last word when Aaron Lennon led a lightning-fast break before feeding Crouch to sweep home in the 80th minute. Zlatan Ibrahimovic thought he had equalised in added time only to have his goal disallowed for a shove on Michael Dawson.

EDIT: I streamed the game and during the second half kept losing the stream (damned copyright!), managed to get the final moments but missed Gattuso’s headbutt on Joe Jordan (this was after he’d shoved him and Crouch earlier in the game – he deserves to miss the next leg).

All in all, AC Milan showed their petulance, they assumed a Spurs without Bale would simply crumble – we showed them that ‘Audere est Facere‘ (To Dare is to Do) isn’t just a throwaway motto for a club – it’s a mantra for the rapidly rising stars of N17…NOW, the big guns of Europe will sit up and take notice.

β€œWe pressed them, we closed them, we didn’t give them the chance to play,” – Harry Redknapp

Tuesday – and tonight is Champion’s League night! Spurs back at the San Siro…

Woop! Woop! πŸ™‚

And we’re still holding onto 4th place in the Premiership above Chelski after they failed to beat Fulham last night…

Last time at the San Siro, we were 4-0 down and down to 10 men at half-time – a Bale hat-trick in the second half saw us back from the brink. No Bale tonight though – he’s still out injured, but ‘Arry has said:

Attacking football is what got us here in the first place. We have had a go all through this competition so we will have a right go again at San Siro. We can score here. I don’t want to concede bags of goals for sure. We can’t afford to make the same mistakes and can’t start like that again but as far as shutting up shop goes it’s a non-starter because we don’t have the players here.


Back at work

What a great weekend πŸ™‚ Milan is a beautiful city – expensive though (some places wanted 16 euros for a beer!). As I mentioned, finding a restaurant that sells food (not just a sandwich) wasn’t the easiest thing…but the food was lovely.

The San Siro is a HUGE stadium – 85,000 capacity (not as big as Wembley then) – as you can see from the pictures, we went all over the place, Inter and AC’s dressing rooms, sat in the dugouts, stole a lump of turf πŸ˜‰ …that seems to be standard procedure for me now, everytime I go to a football ground, I end up with some of the turf.

The Duomo cathedral is very awe inspiring – a friend (Bruno) was talking about it before we went, saying we should sit in a bar opposite the cathedral and just look. Well, that part of town was VERY expensive, so we spent about an hour up on the roof (ok, much of the time was spent ogling the ladies).

The food – oh, the food…when you finally find a place to eat, the food is sooooo good. Dennis found out that ‘antipasta’ means starter, so while I had a lovely steak with potatoes and a delicious sauce, he had 3 slices of salami, some mushrooms all covered in olive oil – after this, he tended to order from the same part of the menu I was reading (hint: always follow my lead when food is involved – I do like my food…).

I mentioned Burger King – I know it’s a typical Brit abroad thing to eat English food, I refused to go into any of the McDonalds out there, and even directed someone to Burger King when they wanted McDonalds (heh, I’m sure they’d thank me…) – anyway, you can buy a beer there! πŸ™‚ and it’s cheap! (2.70 euros), and it’s open 24 hours! and it was opposite our hotel! all this is why it was the late night snack place of choice prior to going back to the hotel.

Of course, landing at Heathrow was a bit of a shock – Milan was warm (about 21 degrees), London was cold, wet, and well, London 😐 Must admit though, Terminal 5 is enormous. The baggage handling was impressive, took about 4 minutes to get from the plane to the baggage reclaim, and my bag was there already πŸ™‚ most importantly, the bottle of vodka in it was still intact πŸ˜€

Pictures are just about uploaded – off to go add descriptions now πŸ™‚

EDIT: Oh yes, Rik – there ARE MILFS in Milan, and they have lovely pert arses. I always thought Italian women tended to spread as they aged, but it seems the lack of food places there means they don’t eat, they just buy shoes and handbags.
