Crouch- who in my opinion is one of the most under-rated strikers in the world (still beyond me how his lanky ass does most of things that he does) banged in 3 goals last night last send my second favourite footy team (and my pops’ first love) Tottenham Hotspur into the Champions League for the first time! Spurs went through 6-3 on aggregate after losing the first leg to Young Boys (a team name and not a group kid soccer players).
I’m soooo stoked about this as I believe they play some of the more attractive football out there under the guidance of HarryRedknapp and also due to the fact that we might see Crouchy do the robot (his pop and lock is mightier than mine- and mine is pretty mighty).
Joining Spurs in the Champions League group phase after qualifying are the likes of: French side Auxerre, Slovakian outfit Zilina, and FC Copenhagen.
Wednesday’s play-off winners go into Thursday’s group stage draw along with Tuesday’s quintet — Sporting Braga, Werder Bremen, Partizan Belgrade, Hapoel Tel-Aviv and Basel.
These 10 play-off qualifiers go into the pot in Monaco with the 22 European heavyweights who gained automatic admission to the group phase. As far as I am aware the draw takes place later today- as soon as we have details we’ll pop them up (thankfully no English teams can be placed in the same group)!
Real Madrid vs United anyone??? hahahaha!
