And one point between Spurs and Man City after today and they play each other Wednesday which should decide fourth. I'm pulling for Tottenham as I like the way they play and I can't stand Tevez for some inexplicable reason.

No, wait.


Spurs have played well all season and they're a hungry young team who deserve to be in Europe next year (and they did it without the unlimited check book of City).

p.s. I hate to see a team kicked when they're down but Liverpool today, oh dear. Looks like it's Chelsea's league barring a catastrophe.

What?!? Spurs ensure fourth, and could take third, and nadda??

I see, Spurs are only mentionable when they fail?

Well, I for one (go figure) and mighty proud of the Spurs. Good match, though a few of the challenges some of the Spurs laid in had my heart in my throat for fear of a red card. AND, one or two attempts from Man City were nerv-wrecking affairs, but in the end they pulled it off....

I was waiting for your post.

p.s. Looks like half of the England team could be Spurs players.

Good result for Tottenham. I'm suprised at how well they have done under Redknapp.

38,250 attendance for the Leeds game.

2-1 and watching the line by line commentary on BBC World on the net. 90 minutes+

I think the reporter has fallen asleep. Nothing for the last five minutes. This is not fair.

Leeds are promoted. Jeez, it's not easy supporting this lot. They took that to the wire

Just finished watching it on Al Jazeera. Great advert for the lower divisions and hats off to the crowd foe getting behind em when 1-0 down and 10 men. Idiot Gradel though. Should have hurt Leeds. Congrats.

They didn't have it on TV over here. The game was Qatar v Saudi.

I thought we'd thrown it.

It's a salutory and rewarding experience when your team comes back after falling from grace.

Championship next season

What a start to the year

Chelsea look unbeatable (and don't they look smart getting rid of Cole and Ballack).

The wheels are coming off at Man. U. (Rooney to City anyone? ) - I think he should give Mourinho a call as Madrid could always do with a number 10 even with the divine M's magic (and how long before Liverpool or Man U. beg the Marvellous one to save them)?

And the best hat trick of the year was Gareth Bale's against Inter tonight. Shame Tottenham let four in. I guess you can't have everything.

p.s. Barcelona is still poetry in motion.

p.p.s. okay, Sid. The jokes over, enough is enough.

I know this thread has, like Sid, died but it has to be stated for the record that today's El Classico witnessed the finest display of club football I have ever seen.

Barcelona roled over Mourinho's Real Madrid 5-0 with a display of soccer that I have no doubt will be used for years as a training guide to how the game should be played. Beautiful.

Watch it again on-line HERE.

p.s. Surely the Messi - Ronaldo debate is over in Messi's favor.
