Wednesday night will go down in Tottenham Hotspur’s history as the day when Spurs reached the Champions League proper. Harry Redknapp’s men put the first leg of qualifying behind them and romped to a 4-0 win at White Hart Lane against Young Boys. Now they get to face some of Europe’s big boys, including last year’s Champions League winners Inter Milan. Tottenham have Peter Crouch to thank for their victory, the tall striker helping himself to a hat-trick and showing just how prolific his little and large partnership with Jermain Defoe is. Crouchy hasn’t had a great time of it recently, having disappointed along with the rest of the England squad at the World Cup in South Africa, and his relationship with Abbey Clancy looks to be on the rocks if tabloid tales of Crouchy playing away from home are to be believed. He may have let one of the Premier League’s hottest WAGs slip through his fingers, but Crouch wasn’t about to let his match ball go the same way. What do you think Crouch is saying to Defoe here?
