I thought you supported the bestest football club in the world.

At least your team play with the big boys. My team play in a league so bad, at least according to Europe cup results, that it is considered one of the worst leagues in Europe.

Bet it's a lot cheaper to get in, though. When I was (much) younger I used to watch non-league football (the then mighty Newquay AFC in the then Jewson South Western). Great laugh, far more fun than the pros and you spent more on the after-match pasty and chips than on admission. The odd long-distance trip in the FA Cup or Vase was even better. It took us a week afterwards to sober up.

Close to 30$ per ticket to the long side and that is not the most expensive place there. So I am sure it is cheaper but I am not so sure it is a lot cheaper.

Perhaps I should have said that it is the premier league in Sweden that my team play in but our success in Europe is so abysmal that the ranking is abysmal as well (for both the league and teams).

Sounds fun.

But I do not think I would survive such a wet long-distance trip. I am to old for that stuff.

Lovely sunny day yesterday, and spent it at the beach (well mostly in the sea) with the
girls

Two sour notes to end the day on however 1. I didnt put enough sun cream on OUCH, and 2. Got home to find Spurs had lost. I hate football

Apparently this did not help since we lost with 0-1.

But when we focused on the return game instead we managed to win with 2-0 with the last goal made in the last minute. CSKA had over 30 shoots against our goal but somehow we managed to defend the goal. With this heroic win we are in the Group Stage in the Europa League and with some luck we will get the Spurs in the same group.

Nice one AIK Stockholm!!

Well, we'll find out tomorrow. They do the main draw (for the Europa league) tomorrow, having warmed up the crowd today with the Champions League nonsense.

Good work Spurs! We've sold Modric and Van Der Vaart and now, with time running out, the deal with Moutinho has hit trouble. Excellent work boys

What do you think of your Europa League draw Orm? We have a real toughy Lazio, Panathinaikos and Maribor..... Maribor will hopefully be okay, but the other two? Tough. Especially with no players (see above post).....

So we've signed Hugo Lloris when we already have a decent keeper in Brad Friedel. I guess Brad is coming to the end of his premiership career so probably makes sense......BUT

...... what about Moutinho???? About 1 hour and 40 mins to go.......nail biting stuff.

Well well well...maybe its not Moutinho after all.... Clint Dempsey, who appeared Liverpool bound all summer, is now a Tottenham player!

So that will save us some money

I suspect that it was a good trade when you consider the money involved. But they left it close to last minute?

It looks like a managable group to me. I think Spurs will advance from this group.

But it might just be that I down value the Greek team. I might do that because the way they used to play...

I think our group is tougher. But it might have the weakest team in the tournament in AIK.

PSV Eindhoven (Ned)
SSC Napoli (Ita)
FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk (Ukr)
AIK (Swe)

I am a grumpy old man. We do not think positive.

I am actually trying to be realistic. That we knocked out CSKA Moscow (rated 18th best team in Europe) was truly amazing. I do not count on yet another miracle this year.

Yes I know what you mean. I have more chance of being crowned Miss World than Spurs have of even reaching the final.

Huge game today for Spurs - at home to Norwich, who took us apart earlier this year. Anything less than 3 points and AVB will find himself on all the back pages tomorrow.

Important match today for Tottenham. A 1-0 lead for Tottenham at the moment but that feels to close for comfort.

The premier League looks interesting this year.

Good that you won since you now can focus energy on improving the team performance. I suspect that if you lost points in this match then the focus would have been on replacing the coach and such things.

That was always going to be the problem with replacing 'arry with AVB - the knives will be out again before too long no doubt...

Maybe the travails of Liverpool will take a bit of heat off AVB - no wins in four premiership matches is not what the Anfield faithful expect...
