Europa League Fun, Idiots in Rome, Southampton vs. Liverpool, Tottenham vs. West Ham, Sampdoria vs. Genoa, Winter World Cup 2022

Feyenoord "fans" in Rome...

There goes another one, folks. Snow, frigid temps, ice, all that crap. Makes it easier to watch matches, though, don't it? Sadly, some Feyenoord "supporters" weren't as interested in watching their team face Roma as they were in trashing the Eternal City. Idiots.

Meanwhile, good on Chelsea for responding to what their "fans" did in Paris. It's nice to be able to agree with The Special One every once in a while...

Back to the action on the pitch, though, right? Tottenham vs. Fiorentina was a dandy. End to end stuff with a cracker from Soldado. It finished 1 - 1. James Riach was at White Hart Lane and filed this report. Over at Anfield, Super Mario snatched the ball from Jordan Henderson and converted the penalty kick to give Liverpool the win over Besiktas. Andy Hunter was at Anfield and filed this report. Over in Bern Lukaku grabbed a hat-trick and Everton cruised past Young Boys. We think Mike Whalley was at Stade de Suisse. Regardless, he filed this report. Celtic vs. Inter Milan looked like it was fairly exciting. That finished 3 - 3. Here's a review of all of yesterday's fun.

It all begs the question: Does a run in the Europa League damage a team's chances in the Premier League?

Take a look at this. It would appear that Spurs will be able to build a new stadium now that Archway Sheet Metal Works has had (and lost) its day in court. Will a new ground allow Tottenham to be London's next big power, or will it be West Ham instead? Either way, Jim White thinks Pochettino is the perfect man to lead Spurs into the future.

After a bit of a break on behalf of the FA Cup, the Premier League will resume normal service tomorrow. Here's your prep:

We should tackle the other top leagues in Europe while we're at it. Germany? Ja. Italy? . Spain?

Good Week? Bad Week? Who had which?

And looks like 2022 in Qatar will be in the winter. That'll be interesting. Enjoy the weekend.
