      Whoever it is, we have to beat them and Spuds knew that they were on the verge of elimination. They were up against a very very poor Ajax defence and if Spuds had push so high up, we will murder them.

      I really couldn't decide which team I'd rather we demolish in the final, but Spurs it is, the serial choke team.
      Ajax were more dangerous so I'm happy we got Spurs who we have a big advantage over the last few years.
      No complacency obviously but I really fancy us in the final.

      Great match that was. Spurs were very good. That forward for ajax is sum player love to see him at Liverpool

      Apparently, Harry Kane is claiming the match ball.

      I don't think us being ahead of the league by 24 points will mean anything come final day. They have shown they are more than capable of beating us or any big team out there.



      We have their number and this is our territory.

      Man for man we are better simple.

      Look.... after last nights performance we can beat any team on the planet..

      Tottenham dug in and scraped through against a poor and inexperienced Ajax team tonight.
      Good as they have been, Ajax are still a very young team who simply ran out of steam.

      The game was so open it was unreal.

      Tottenham will be up against a totally different team in Madrid on June 1st

      Gotto mark that Mauro guy tightly. They like to push through the middle and we need to plug those holes and we should be ok. Whenever Ajax attacked Spuds, their defence looks suspect.

      FairPlay to Spuds they have teetered on the brink of exiting this competition since it started. I’d rather be playing a European side but I also think Ajax are the dangerous sort of side who can cut through our press and score a couple of goals in quick succession. Hopefully our experience from last year stands us in good stead.

      As the game went on I was thinking I hope we got Ajax, the chances Spurs were creating we could have killed them.

      To be honest I'm more worried about Spurs as an opponent than I would ever have been against Ajax.

      I think it would have been somewhere around 80-20 against Ajax and it's nearer 55-45 against Spurs

      Still if we play as we can we win

      Spurs simply lugged it long to Lorente for the entire 2nd half of both matches and this young Ajax side couldn’t deal with it. That won’t work against us. I think Ajax would have created chances against us the way they play. However, I have got that little bit of fear in the pit of my stomach that you only get when you play another English side in Europe.

      really emjoyed both games for very different reason but a comeback with a last minute winner is really exciting to watch. Football no script needed just passion and commitment .

      Heavens above. That was as cruel as football can be. If it was a Madrid, Barcelona, Man City (or even us) you could pick yourself up in the belief that you right the wrong of that last minute in the following season. But this is Ajax - who are more than likely going to have all their best players picked off sooner rather than later. They know that in the long run they can't compete with the financial clout of other European clubs and any hopes of a European revival where they can rise again seems limited you would think?

      No doubt - Spurs themselves have done a fine job to get to the final given their own prudent approach (relative to the Premier League) in the market but they were always favourites for this tie and had far the better financial muscle. Pochettino has done a fine job there.

      But Ajax? Wow - possibly the cruelest thing I've seen in football! (though little love will be had for their goalie - what was he doing for Moura's second goal? And ultimately it was his time wasting that eeked out those vital few seconds that Spurs took advantage of.)

      Good thing the Final is weeks away and both us & Spurs will be off his 48 hour high that we as fans have witnessed from our couches.

      Game on I say!

      Agreed with that mate,

      would have hoped getting Ajax in the final, just an easier opponent to deal with.

      Tottenham are a good side, now I'm kind of worried.

      Guys how can anyone be worried? Just yesterday we played a game for all times to get in the final. Before that game if we are honest a lot of us were preparing to miss out on the final so shouldn’t we feel happy and hopefully that a team that did that will be just fine against Tottenham?

      I'm happy that we are in the final, but I just hate facing English teams in the CL. It makes me feel so worried.

      Spurs are the better team but Ajax were far more unpredictable. I'm happy we have Spurs, its a tough match but with our full strike force back, plus a few weeks rest we'll beat them, plus the occasion may well get to Spurs.
      We also have Spurs number in recent years,we know how to beat them.
