With the euphoria starting to die down following our last sixteen triumph, it’s time to take another break before our next league fixture, at home to West Ham next Saturday.
The fixture gap gives us time to reflect and enjoy the success, but just where does that rank amongst our best European games?
For those that can remember, was the 1963 Cup Winners Cup Final the pinnacle of our European success, or was it either of the UEFA Cup finals in 1972 & 1984?
There were some great European games in the eighties, with crowds of around 50,000 squeezed into White Hart Lane. Particular favourites include Hoddle taking apart an ageing Cruyff against Feyenoord and the triumph over Bayern Munich, who were expected to make short work of us.
Then there was the semi final in 1984 when we squeezed through against Hajduk Split. The atmosphere that night was almost as great as the final itself.
One of my particular favourites was the home tie with Bruges the following season (well the first half anyway), where a sublime goal from Hazard, a tap in from Clive Allen and a Roberts howitzer gave us a 3-0 win.
So was one of our victories over the Milan clubs from this season the best of all? Or has there been a better game from our European past?
Here’s some videos to jog your memories.
