Our countdown of your top 10 moments of last season reaches number three and four...

NUMBER FOUR...
The atmosphere in the second half v Sevilla, UEFA Cup quarterfinal, second leg, White Hart Lane, April 12…

The fans find an extra gear to get behind the lads as they come out for the second half, trailing 2-0 and 3-1 on aggregate to Sevilla in the UEFA Cup quarter-final, second leg. We managed to pull two goals back, but it wasn’t enough.

WHAT THE FANS SAID...
Stephen Bailey: “The best moment for me was the crowd’s reaction just after half-time in the home match against Sevilla.We started off singing ‘we only need four goals’ which went around the ground like wildfire but then the best moment happened, for about 15 minutes solid after the interval the crowd did not stop singing ‘Martin Jol’s blue white army’. Everybody at the Lane was singing in unison. It was amazing and the hairs were standing up on the back of my neck. I looked around the ground and it was incredible - the whole Lane was ONE HOTSPUR.”

Edward Webb: “My moment of the season was the second half of the second leg against Sevilla in the UEFA Cup, not for footballing reasons, either. When the team came out after half-time needing to score four goals to progress, they were greeted with a cacophony of noise. What proceeded was the most incredible atmosphere I've ever heard at White Hart Lane and any other ground I've been to. The chant of 'Martin Jol's Blue and White Army' that kicked off the second half was still going when Jermain Defoe pulled one back 20 minutes later. The result of the tie was not necessarily what we deserved, but I'll remember the atmosphere that night for the rest of my life.”

Huw Neill: “The entire second half of the home leg against Sevilla. Despite going out in this leg, the support the fans gave the team and our almost successful comeback meant I left the ground hugely upbeat despite going out of the competition. More nights like this next year please.”

David Eacott: “My memory was the atmosphere at White Hart Lane for the UEFA Cup quarter-final against Sevilla. It was electric from the start and it was just such a shame we were down two in the first seven minutes which really killed the game. But the atmosphere was once again electric at the start of the second half and we willed those two goals in and bearing in mind that was after just 67 minutes it looked as though the miracle was on, alas it was not to be!”

Francesca Fiorentini: “My moment of last year would have to be the Sevilla game. I know we went out of the cup but the atmosphere when the boys came out at half time was amazing and that's what has stuck with me from last season.”

NUMBER THREE...
Jermaine Jenas’ equaliser against Arsenal, 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane, April 21…

Following on from the Carling Cup semi-finals, it looked like the Gunners had got the better of us again after we’d taken the lead only for ‘JJ’ to drill home a 20-yard leveller deep into injury time.

WHAT THE FANS SAID...
Ben Chapman: “The Jenas goal against Arsenal. I was in the pub and all the Spurs lads thought we had lost it. Jenas scored and the whole place erupted, jumping up and down, pints knocked over, I lost all my cash on the floor, broke my flip-flops - brilliant!”

Justin Turner; “It has to be JJ’s equaliser against Arsenal. I was at my brother’s house (he supports the Gooners) and he was telling me how great they are, then Mr Jenas shut him up. I don't think he said anything for about an hour after that! Thanks for a season packed full of memories!”

Catherine Daniels: “Having worked the five previous nights, having no sleep due to the kick-off being brought forward and the prospect of working with a Gooner on the night shift following the game it was all looking rather bleak...until that final moment when JJ hit the back of the net. Needless to say I went to work with a big smile on my face and spent most of the night explaining the finer points of the game to a rather subdued Gooner!”

Gavin Barnaby: “What made it a great moment for me is that I had interrupted my weekend away in Canterbury to travel by train to the game. The thought of travelling back to Canterbury having lost to Arsenal was sickening, I couldn’t see us scoring and it was always going to take a wonder strike to get an equaliser - and what a strike. I just hope not too many fans left before the final whistle to witness it."
