I could write a few hundred words about the plastic pitch, our injury problems up front and how Tom Huddlestone needs to boss the game, but sometimes you can say more with less.
This is the sort of game that evokes the sort of ‘glory, glory nights’ that White Hart Lane is famous for, yet only the older Spurs fans will remember such evenings.
So instead of a normal preview, I felt that the best way to get in the mood for tonight is to remind you of some of those great European triumphs and let’s recreate that magic atmosphere at the Lane tonight. Come on you Spurs!
