As 2-0 away wins go, you'd be hard pressed to find one with better goals than Real Sociedad's victory at Lyon last night. The Spanish side put themselves in the box-seat for Champions League goals courtesy of two absolutely stunning goals. Haris Seferovic's long range dipping effort would have been grabbing all the headlines today.

Twohundredpercent at related • 1 view

We continue our series of archived matches of the clubs of the Football League Championship this morning with six matches from the history of a club that has been generating a large number of headlines over the last few weeks, Cardiff City. Cardiffs position in the Football world as a Welsh club playing in the English league system is not unique but for many years it did allow them a route into European football through the Welsh Cup and our first two matches come from that competition.

Suzanne Vega sings "Luka"

Soccerblog at related • 0 views

The song is a haunting elegy to child abuse, a very serious matter. But a different Luka is hogging the football world's headlines at present and he's none too happy either. So here is the re-worded song.

"Luka"

My name is Luka
I work at White Hart Lane
I am on the TV a lot
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something
Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was

I think it's all because of Levy
I try not to talk too loud
Maybe it's because they need me
I try not to act too proud

They want to keep me till I die
After that, you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore

Yes I think it's going to be Real
I was ready to walk out last year
Well, if you insist this is what I'll say
40mil for me is chicken feed, hombre
But Levy, all you do is bitch and moan
With nothing gained, nothing thrown

Just don't ask me how I am [X3]

My name is Luka
I work at White Hart Lane
I am on TV a lot
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was

And they want to keep me till I die
After that, you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore

Morning all,

many headlines this morning regarding PHW's interview in the Standard screaming 'WE CAN'T COMPETE', which really doesn't tell the full story. We can't compete in some respects, we know that, and that's what the Chairman said.

"At a certain level, we can't compete"

And he's talking about the clubs whose resources are endless.

Tottenham's young strikers have shone during Spurs XI games in pre-season and after Souleymane Coulibaly grabbed our headlines last weekend, Harry Kane proved last night that he still possesses a great deal of potential.

Whether either of those players can build on that potential to forge a career at Spurs remains to be seen but both featured heavily in our 6-0 win over Southend United yesterday.

A crowd of 329 people turned out at Treyew Road yesterday afternoon to see Truro City beat Boreham Wood by two goals to nil in the Blue Square Bet South, but it seems unlikely that events on the pitch made for too much of the discussion amongst the clubs supporters. As has seemed to frequently been the case over the last year or so, goings-on in the boardroom have been hogging the headlines at this particular club, with Fridays announcement that it is to enter into administration throwing the future of Cornwalls most successful non-league club into doubt.
