Spurs and Juane Ramos Secures Carling Cup Glory

Spurs have been extremely impressive since the arrival of Ramos. From the 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal at the Lane to finally lifting the cup. In a very long time they have not enjoyed the kind of run they current enjoy in cup competitions. Spurs' success is their fourth League Cup win and first since 1999, the last time they won a major trophy. It also means their boss Juande Ramos has still never lost a cup final as a manager after five triumphs in Spain with Sevilla.

From a goal down they impressively staged a come back to lift the Title and become the first team to do so in the new Wembly. Non of the goals came from open play. Didier Drogba opened scoring putting the Blues ahead witha fine free kick right into the left corner of spurs's net. Second came from a spot kick expertly taken by Berbatov to level scores and bring spurs back into contention before an extra time rebound from a Jermaine Jenas free kick was headed home by Woodgate.

This leaves Chelsea now with three competitions to chase after as they were before now the only premier league side still in four competitions.Which ever way one chooses to look at it, Avram Grant has done a good work with a team many thought will stumble following the exit of Jose Mourinho. With a good chance on the Premier League, Champions League and the FA Cup Grant can't be said to have perfomed badly in his first half season with Chelsea.
