It was always a two-way battle to determine the top moment of last season - here is what you voted for...

Paul Stalteri tapping home to beat West Ham 4-3, Upton Park, March 4…

A roller-coaster encounter saw us trail 2-0 at half-time, come back through Jermain Defoe and Teemu Tainio, go behind again with only five minutes left only to find another two goals, Dimitar Berbatov’s sublime free-kick and Paul Stalteri’s 80-yard dash to tap home the winner in injury time.

Dan Allen: “Seeing Paul Stalteri stampeding across the pitch to slot home the winner against the Hammers was the best moment of the season by a long way. It was quite simply the best game of the season and the ultimate way to win any game…brilliant!”

David Archer: “I was watching the game with my girlfriend (who is a big West Ham fan) and my Dad (who is Spurs). When West Ham went 2-0 up she was giving us plenty of stick! But it was well worth it when Stalteri popped up in the 94th minute to win it for us!”

Pippa Saunders: “I live in Minnesota USA and the game was on at 9am. When Paul Stalteri scored that goal I was speechless, yet making strange noises as I leapt about over the furniture. I'm old enough to have been at White Hart Lane during the Double season, so definitely an interesting sight! I was grinning all over the place and bored everyone I came into contact with with a blow by blow account of the amazing game."

Charlie Joseph: “The night before the West Ham game I had my final performance of a play with a cast I had grown close to but who I wouldn't see again. I was very sad to be leaving this and hoped that a Spurs game would cheer me up. When Zamora scored in the 85th minute I felt very low. Then Berbatov brought it back spectacularly and I felt a little better. When Stalteri scored I ran around my lounge screaming. As soon as the final whistle was blown I headed straight out the door and drove off to a Fratellis gig. A great night.”

Stuart Edwards: “It has to be the away win at West Ham! I was all but on my way out of the ground at 3-2 down! As I spent all my youth in East Ham and after the amount of grief I took after last years disappointing result at Upton Park, this is by far my best moment of the 2006-2007 season! I ended up a little bit drunk that Sunday night in a pub in Chadwell Heath!”

Stephen Frost: “For me, it simply has to be Paul Stalteri's injury time winner against West Ham. I cannot remember ever feeling sheer joy like it. I was right behind the goal and got carried about five rows forward, unbelievable!”

Barry Reed: “The two late goals against West Ham. It was all the more wonderful because the game was on Mexican television and I watched it in a packed bar in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We equalised and I was running around in concentric circles screaming and pumping my fist, then jumping on chairs and the whole place went quiet and people started pointing at me. Nobody else (mostly American tourists ) was remotely interested in the game and here I was bouncing off the walls when we equalised. A very surreal experience. So I sat down very red-faced and regained my composure for a couple of minutes then, of course, I did it all again only louder when the winner went in!”

Beating Chelsea 2-1, White Hart Lane, November 5...

Trailing 1-0 to Claude Makelele’s volley, we turned it around with goals from Michael Dawson and Aaron Lennon to beat the champions for the first time in the Premiership.

Roger Stakemire: “Leaving the ground after the final whistle was the best feeling all season, complete strangers were hugging each other, I was numb with happiness, I was walking back to my car with the biggest grin and shouting “YES” quite a bit!”

Grant Neofitou: “My son was born five days earlier and it felt like he was the lucky charm we needed to end all those years without a win against them! Ending the hoodoo they had over us and the fact that they were reigning champions confirmed we were back!”

Phil Hines: “The best moment was undoubtedly when Lennon hit the winner against Chelsea. I was stood directly behind the goal and when the ball fell at his feet and he took a step to the left I could just feel he was going to hit the winner. When it hit the back of the net I think I left the floor by about three feet!”

Bostjan Weldt: “It was the only game I saw live at White Hart Lane last term because I’m from Slovenia. In the following minutes my mobile went mad, receiving SMS messages from all my friends back home.”

Nicola Welburn: “The game against Chelsea wins because whenever I watch it, even now, the hairs on the back of my neck still stand on end. It’s not the goal that stands out, it’s the atmosphere and the pride the players showed when the goals went it and at the end of the match.”
