Spurs & Liverpool Out of Europe, More Crowd Trouble, Weekend Previews, League Cup Final, QPR Movie, Sex at the Valley

Ugh. Sorry, folks. There was some snow yesterday, and when it snows in the southern United States, people lose their shit. This loss of shit resulted in schools being closed and SSN Staff refusing to make their way to SSN Headquarters. They are weak and will be disciplined.  Anyway, you probably are well aware of Arsenal doing an Arsenal and completely embarrassing themselves. They lost to Monaco 1 - 3. In the other Champions League match on Wednesday, Atlético Madrid lost in Leverkusen. Now that we're up to speed, let's move on.

In Europe's secondary club competition, winners included Inter, Zenit St. Petersburg, Ajax, Besiktas, Fiorentina, Sevilla, Everton, and Roma. Losers included Tottenham, Liverpool, Celtic, Bilbao, Salzburg, Guingamp, and Feyenoord. Yes, more woe for English clubs in Europe. As you might expect, The Fourth Estate is having a field day (see more from Ronay and White below). Regardless, here's your lot from yesterday's fun:

Fiorentina 2 - 0 Tottenham: James Riach at the Stadio Artemio Franchi
Fiorentina 2 - 0 Tottenham: Three Thoughts
Besiktas 1 - 0 Liverpool: Andy Hunter at Ataturk Stadium
Besiktas 1 - 0 Liverpool: Three Thoughts

Woop!? Are Inter Milan finally turning it all around? Richard Hall investigates. Right. Richard Williams has an article about a film called R’Story. Apparently, it's about QPR fans. Check it out.

Dynamo Kiev fans fight...amongst themselves.

We've not had a The Joy of Six is far too long. Appropriately, ahead of Sunday's What's In Your Wallet Final Clash at Wembley, it's...League Cup Final Goals!

And with that, we'll delve into the action in England and Wales this weekend. The Premier League (Manchester City vs. Liverpool looks tasty) and the League Cup Final are on deck:

League Cup Final: Preview
League Cup Final: Key Battles

What the hell else is going on out there? Well, for one, Dunkin' Donuts executives made a big massive offensive error. Idiots. Charlton Athletic have an interesting way of promoting a pitch rental scheme. Six at the center circle? Uhhh, really? 

On that note...
