As if to separate boys from men, Tottenham Hotspurs hit 4 past hapless Swiss Young Boys at White Hart Lane. Blog followers know well there was never a question of if Spurs will proceed, but how much the Boys would suffer.
Peter Crouch was red-hot scoring a hat-trick, while Jermaine Defoe weighed in with a 2nd goal before half time. Young Boys, as expected were never in it, resorting to hard tackling and indiscipline that saw them concede a converted penalty and a defender sent off.
Crouch could have converted 2 easy chances in the second half. Gary Baile and Assu Ekotto looked sharp enough to suggest that the prediction of Spurs as the team of the season is not far-fetched. While Spurs were superb in defence, there was a concern as goalkeeper Gomes limped off at half time.
What a fantastic night for Spurs and the English game. Do you think Spurs will have an impact in Europe this season?
