    That's true, but it seems like a guy playing for a mid-table League 2 club is probably just excited to be on the field with these guys and taking out some guy like that would be heavily, heavily frowned upon.

    Not to mention a potentially career-limiting move.

    Back in 2007 and likely into more recent years, Barca felt compelled to play Dinho and now Messi. Now, those are very different circumstances. Dinho was a party animal in 2007 having already achieved all of his sporting goals and asking him to play was likely deleterious to the club's performance on the field, whereas Messi is a competitive animal who gets upset if he doesn't start 60 matches a year. But I digress. It's very unusual to us in the US, but I think there is a certain amount of merit to the 'paying supporter' perspective, even if I don't agree with it. In Barca's case, 'Mes que un club' should be '[Messi,] Mas que el club'.

    Spurs with a 1-0 win at home over Chelsea in the League Cup semis. They were probably outplayed, but a Kane penalty got them the win and will be in good shape to advance if they can knick a goal in second leg.

    Spurs beat Chelsea 1-0 at home in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final. Kane converted a first-half penalty to score the only goal of the game. City will play League 2 side Burton tomorrow in the other semi-final.

    I'll take a largely undeserved first leg victory. They are going to need to play much better at Stamford Bridge to advance.

    Definitely, but keep Chelsea off the board is a big plus.

    VAR employed, and to great effect. Determined Harry was onside (lino flag went up) by the finest of margins and that Kepa fouled him for a penalty (which was pretty obvious).

    My favorite Spur and player overall for some time. Shame he never got in the Belgium side more regularly. On his day, and when healthy, an absolute beast and a joy to watch.

    Stating the obvious, but I really feel like this midfield needs significant reinforcement. Some will come next week when Dier is back, but they are getting run over in the middle by good teams.

    I must admit, there is a transfer fee number for our beloved Hugo that would make me perfectly fine with Gazzaniga as the #1 going forward. I love the Captain, but I my untrained eye has been very impressed with Gazza this year.

    Tottenham announces that the new stadium will not be ready for matches until March, so no Dortmund match there.

    As I understand it, if the Dortmund match is played at Wembley, so will any/all remaining CL matches be required. Even if New WHL is opened and available.
    Major bummer.

    This hasn't been confirmed and some reports are that if Spurs advance, Uefa is ok with the new stadium.

    If they don't make a big purchase at midfield or striker, their slim CL chances are now 0, and top 4 isn't nearly as much of a lock as it was. This is a big problem. This does suck.

    Also, Serge Aurier was arrested and released, so yeah, bang up week.

    Park the bus against Chelsea, run out kids against CP in FA Cup, hope for points against Watford, Newcastle, and Leicester.

    Feb 27 and Mar 3 against Chelsea and Arsenal are the big ones. We need to maintain a gap.
