    Gattuso is already out of the second leg after being booked. Complete tool.

    Brilliant Spurs performance with Sandro being the surprise packet. Dawson and Gallas awesome again; Lennona and Pienaar superb tracking back. Plus, two excellent saves by Gomes.

    Ah, cheers, will remove the offending sentence. Such petulance, though. Odd.

    Agreed on Sandro, too, by the way. A revelation after half a season warming the bench.

    One of the peculiarities of supporting a team (Spurs) from half a world away (NZ) is that on nights (or our mornings) like this, we are at the mercy of the ‘creative’ scheduling of ESPN, who chose not to show this match live, but instead Valencia vs Schalke.

    Thank goodness for a little thing called The Internet and live text feeds aye?

    Spurs really deserved their win last night and despite being without their two most creative/ attacking players, packing the midfield with Sandro and Palacios limited Milan to few opportunities whilst frustrating them in the process. There is no doubt thatSpurs’ combative style in midfield also served to wind Milan up but ultimately Spurs were able to rise above it and deservedly took home the win.

    When I saw the starting lineups – I favoured Tottenham to get a result at the San Siro. Too many old and slow players to catch up with Aaron Lennon on the country attack! Peter Crouch has been clinical in the Champions League this season and Spurs got what I believe they deserved. Here’s hoping Gino Gattuso now gets what he deserves…

    I think Spurs will prevail in this tie – 1 up away from home is a great result.

    I’d like to know what Jordan actually said to ‘Rino’ to get him so riled up in the first place..
