Goal of the Season - Part 4

This week on tottenhamhotspur.com we are giving fans the chance to vote for their favourite Spurs goal of the 2008-09 campaign.

It was a season in which we managed to lift ourselves from the doom and gloom of relegation trouble to the exciting prospect of European qualification under the guidance of Harry Redknapp.

And there were a number of memorable goals along the way!

Every day this week we will be giving you the lowdown on each of the five contenders - here is your Option 4...

Aaron Lennon v Middlesbrough, Wednesday March 4, White Hart Lane

What a perfomance, what a goal! We were in scintillating form on this occasion, going 3-0 up before half-time, and this was the highlight.

One of our best passing moves of the season, which stretched from back to front, left a Boro defence that had been run ragged throughout the first half mesmerised.

Aaron had drifted out to the right to collect a ball and played in to Robbie Keane. As the skipper was faced with Robert Huth, the winger had made a cheeky run around the back of the defence.

With a deft touch through the legs of the German defender, Robbie had set Aaron clean through on Brad Jones' goal.

There was still plenty to do, but the finish was one of the coolest you will see, neatly side-footing inside the near post, putting icing on the cake of a magnificent first half.

Aaron added a fourth later on and, just days after our Carling Cup Final heartbreak, this result proved to be the kick-start for our late-season revival.

Following this, we were to lose only three of our last 11 games, and Aaron was to play a major part in our best spell of the season.

Visit tottenhamhotspur.com tomorrow for your next option, and we will have details on how you can vote later this week.
