Chasing a huge goal difference swing and needing POAK to beat Rubin Kazan elsewhere, the odds were against Tottenham making it through to the knockout phases last night, but they held up their end of the bargain by racking up an impressive drubbing of Shamrock Rovers at the Tallaght – Steven Pienaar, Andros Townsend (a real beauty, well worth watching the highlights for), Jermain Defoe and Harry Kane all bagging a goal apiece.

Sadly, POAK and Rubin’s mutually beneficial 1-1 draw rendered all Spurs’ efforts pointless, as both the Greeks and the Russians went through at the close of play.

C’est la vie, should make winning the title all that more easier, eh ‘Arry?
