Very disappointing display by Oxford, it will be a long time before they are selected by me again, time for a managerial change at the Kassam Stadium !

Excellent ideas in the UEFA Cup though, in addition to the two winners posted earlier on the blog, two further email selections also obliged, for a clean sweep in europe's lesser competition .....


This is a massive game for Spurs and especially Martin Jol. Last season they used the UEFA Cup as a launching pad to reignite their season and following 4 league defeats already, are looking for the same this time round. It is not that they are playing poorly, they are not, in the 3-3 draw with Fulham, they had enough chances to win 4 matches and were desperately unlucky to lose at Manchester United and could have scored 10( no exaggeration ) against Derby. They are making the odd mistake and getting punished for it.
Expect them to be very motivated tonight, put out a strong team and show no mercy ! Visitors are not helped by being without their starting goal keeper.

6 points Tottenham -2 goals 1.75 asian line. won 6-1


I have no doubt that the visitors are the better side and certainly have more european experience, with the Dons making their first appearance in five seasons. Aberdeen have won just once in the SPL and have a massive game at Rangers at the weekend. They have openly said that the most important thing this evening is to keep a clean sheet.

Dnipro also have a huge game coming up, with a trip to league leaders Donetsk, who they currently trail by 3 points. They will surely have one eye on that fixture. Very tight defensively, keeping 4 clean sheets in 5 starts, they will also be very happy to keep things low key and scoreless. All things considered I see the draw as easily the best value in the game, with a small stake saver on the visitors.

4 points draw 3.25 general quote. result 0-0
2.5 Dnipro 2.60 general quote.
