Spurs have drawn Feyenoord in the next round of the UEFA Cup after stuffing Dinamo Bucharest 3-1 last night at White Hart Lane. Some good performances all round, and some more goals from Berbatov and Defoe who are now forming an effective partnership. The draw could have been kinder, but Feyenoord are currently 5th in the Dutch league, which is weak anyway, and they only scraped into third place in Blackburn’s group. If Spurs get through that round then they will play the winners of the Braga/Parma tie in the quarter finals. Crucially in both cases the away leg is first, allowing things to be completed at the Lane. It has been a job well done by Spurs, who can now concentrate on domestic matters until March, safe in the knowledge that European competition awaits next year.

The Waddler.
