  1. Great result for Spurs and hopefully it augurs well for them for the rest of the tournament .

    It’ll be interesting to see what the other remaining Premiership teams do in the Champions League as well . As I firmly believe that the best soccer is actually played in UK !

      I’m an expat Brit now living here in the US but I still pine for Premiership soccer and the teams there. While I was in the military I got to see Man U and Chelsea in training as I was stationed all over the UK before hitting certain parts of N Africa , various parts of Europe and also a stint in Ireland during the troubles there.

      </p

      It’s going to be fun watching the latter stages of the Champions League ! Many of the big money teams should make it to the later rounds in the knockout phase. And then from thereon in it’s about who’ll want it the most.

      :P

      • Dude, I’m jealous. Utd is my fav. team and I’ve always wanted to see a match at Old Trafford. I used to live in Japan when I was a lil’ boy, and I’ve been to a few matches there. Kinda sad how I have no desire to attend an MLS match.

  2. ya it will be interesting to see how arsenal does this afternoon. They have a handful of players not starting that could hurt them in the end. should be an entertaing match nonetheless.

    I love the Far East culture especially that of Japan and China ! As to the remaining games in the Champions League it’s anyone’s to win just as long as that team truly wants it .

  5. I’ll probably do a post commentary piece on a couple of the games in due course but it’s all about time more than anything else.

    Marseille seek way past miserly United …..

    Olympique de Marseille are chasing a last-eight berth for the first time since winning the UEFA Champions League 18 years ago but face a Manchester United FC side with a formidable away record.

    Olympique de Marseille welcome Manchester United FC for the first leg of their round of 16 contest aiming to reach the last eight of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since lifting the trophy in 1992/93.

    • While United are seeking a fifth successive quarter-final appearance, Marseille have managed just a single last-16 appearance, in 1999/2000, since that solitary triumph.

    • The French champions reached the knockout phase as Group F runners-up behind Chelsea FC, recovering from two opening defeats with a run of four straight wins. Unbeaten United topped Group C on the back of the competition’s best defensive record with just one goal conceded
