Even the dog felt low after Athletic Bilbao's performance against Valencia.

Sevilla failed to show up against a desperate Real Valladolid side. Mallorca could only muster a draw against Real Zaragoza at La Romareda. Athletic Bilbao knew that a win against Valencia on Thursday would ascend them to within one point of Mallorca for the final Champions League spot.

When the Racing de Santander board fired Juan Carlos Mandiá on November 9, the team had only won one game out of ten in La Liga, and they had lost the first leg in the Round of 32 of the Copa del Rey against UD Salamanca, a mid-table club in the Segunda División. This job was Mandiá's first in the top flight, as his previously managed teams, Logroñés, Hércules, and Real Madrid Castilla, were all in the lower divisions of Spanish football.

Everton - Spurs Preview: Time For Squad Rotation?

All Action, No Plot at related • 0 views

Around ten days ago I mused that I would have settled for eight points from our four Christmas-New Year games. Three games in and we already have nine, which means that the riotously good fun continues into 2011 – still not yet out of the title race, most definitely still in the Top Four race and looking down upon the rotters from Stamford Bridge, languishing beneath us.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to another Happy Hour. The majority of this past week I've been in the lab working on the "flux capacitor." While it's been a struggle trying to generate enough power to hit the magical 1.21 gigawatts, I am making some progress. My advisor walked in just the other day and asked me how it was going; inspired by my boy Doc Brown, I replied, "When this baby hits 88mph, you're going to see some serious shit!

OK, seeing as we're hurtling head first into another decade, (and still no flying cars, curse you Back to the Future films), and as I have a couple of hours left, before it's home time, I thought it would be fun to reflect on the previous decade as a Spurs fan, in which we reached 3 League Cup Finals, the sort of success that say Everton would kill for, and in doing so, look at the team that we put out in our very first game in this decade, and indeed new century and millennium.

At times I get the sense that Sepp Blatter and his FIFA cronies genuinely feel like Biff & Co. from the Back to the Future movies, spraying out unintelligent missives to the growing cacophony clamoring for goal line technology. I can't see any possible reason to hinder its growth, but then FIFA has always been obstinately opposed to voting in favor of its own interests.
