It was a great day to be a Tottenham Hotspur fan. First the team brought England striker Jermain Defoe back from Portsmouth for a reported £15m, one year after he left Spurs to go to Portsmouth. Then Spurs went out and hammered Burnley 4-1 to all but book their place at Wembley for the Carling Cup Final. Buy Carling Cup Final Tickets
Defoe, who scored 17 goals in 36 games for Portsmouth will be a good addition for Spurs, who have looked weak upfront since Robbie Keane and Dmitiar Berbatov left in the summer.
Defoe was paraded to the Spurs fans before the Burnley game and then sat down and watch Burney dominate the first half and take a deserved lead into half-time. I don’t know what Harry said at half-time but it worked as Spurs came back to score four goals and all but end the tie. They still have to go to Turf Moor for the second leg, but it will take a miraculous effort from Burnley to reach Wembley. Buy Burnley – Tottenham Hotspur Tickets
With Manchester United heavy favorites to beat Derby in the other semi-final, this win all but ensures that Spurs will be playing in the UEFA Cup again nest season. Now they can concentrate on staying up! Buy Carling Cup Final Tickets
