Tottenham will face European champions Inter Milan and Werder Bremen….
The draw has just been made and Tottenham have been welcomed to the Champions League with a draw that see’s us in a group with the reigning champions Inter Milan of Italy, Werder Bremen of Germany and FC Twente of Holland.
Manchester United face Valencia and Rangers while Arsenal look to have the easiest draw against Shakhtar and Braga. Chelsea should also make easy work of the group stages with a draw that see’s them in a group with Marseille and Spartak Moscow.
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, GROUP A
September 14 – Werder Bremen v Spurs
September 29 – Spurs v FC Twente
October 20 – Inter Milan v Spurs
November 2 – Spurs v Inter Milan
November 24 – Spurs v Werder Bremen
December 7 – FC Twente v Spurs
It is fair to say we could have had an easier draw but this is what it’s all about now, to be the best you have to beat the best and this is what we have been relishing. There is no more hiding the big boys are coming to the Lane.
All I can say is whatever the outcome of the group stage just go out there and do us proud boys and you will will be icons in our eyes. Lucky Arsenal have an easy group yet again and once again Manchester United are in a group with a Scottish team.
I dream that we can emulate what Leeds done and go on an unexpected run but whatever the outcome I know we just won’t want it to end. No more week nights of planning to watch Eastenders or Corrie, we can plan to watch our Tottenham in the Champions League.
All eyes on group A, between now and Christmas it’s going to be one hell of a roller coaster ride.Follow @TrfficTottenham
