Spurs’ bye


My favourite football team Tottenham (nickname Spurs) should play against Feyenoord (Holland) in the next round of the UEFA Cup.

But there is a problem: UEFA decided that Feyenoord cannot play in the UEFA Cup this season. The reason is that Feyenoord supporters started fighting and damaging the stadium when Feyenoord played against Nancy (France) last month.

So Spurs have no opposition and UEFA decided that Spurs can have a ‘bye’ (they can progress to the next round without playing). Feyenoord have appealed to UEFA to change their decision, we’ll see what happens.

If Spurs progress to the next round, the last 16, they will play against Braga or Parma, two very strong teams.
