  1. This Spurs match is extremely entertaining through 25′ – worth checking out on demand if you have FS2Go and aren’t watching live.

    I don’t know anything about this Swiss team, but they actually look pretty decent.

    1. Yeah Torres, get that out of your system now. That’ll be your goal for April. So nothing, then, in the Cup semi, hopefully.

    1. Unfortunately Carroll is not eligible to play on Sunday against his parent club Liverpool. So he cannot score this weekend, at least not on the field :-) .

  2. Basel are traditionally very strong at home in Europe while Spurs have failed to win an away match this season in Europe (not counting the pre-group stage qualifying). Should be interesting in the return leg though I still think Spurs will advance if they put a strong team. Though Bale did leave with an injury

    Chelsea are through, Newcastle are probably out
