Crouchy can't wait

He scored the key goals to get us here - and now Peter Crouch can't wait to get stuck into the Champions League group stages as a Spurs player.

'Crouchy' secured fourth place in the Premier League last term with the memorable headed winner at Manchester City.

The striker who came through the Academy system at the club before returning via spells at QPR, Villa, Southampton, Liverpool and Pompey then scored a hat-trick in the second leg to win the play-off against Young Boys to book a place in the group stages.

Our Champions League dream is very much a reality and kicks-off against Bundesliga side Werder Bremen in the Wesrerstadion on Tuesday night.

"It is really exciting to be a part of it," said Crouchy, whose goalscoring record in European football now reads 18 goals in 41 appearances.

"I felt when I signed here that we had a fantastic squad and one capable of challenging for the top places and it has proved to be the case.

"Finishing fourth last year was a fantastic achievement but obviously we have got the added bonus this year of the Champions League.

"I was lucky enough to play in the Champions League before with Liverpool.

"It is such a fantastic tournament, it is the best in world for me and I think the experiences at Liverpool certainly helped me.

"I reached the final in 2007 and if I can give any of that experience to help this Spurs side then hopefully it will improve us.

"Certainly coming back to the club, being part of the first team and being part of such an exciting Spurs team is a great feeling."
