Spurs fall at the feet of Young Boys

Very entertaining first leg of Spurs' Champions League qualifier this evening which they were expected to win in Switzerland. The game finished 3-2 and Harry Redknapp's side lead a charmed life to take two away goals and only a one goal deficit back to White Hart Lane. They were battered from the off and were 3-0 down within half-an-hour.

Bassong pulled one back before the break but Young Boys should have finished the tie off before falling victim to a Spurs break which saw Roman Pavlyuchenko hammer home from 15 yards having burst into the right-hand side of the box. Home advantage should be enough now but Tottenham will need to be careful because their opponents have proved themselves more than capable.

Can't help wondering what Young Boys call their youth teams? Young Boys Youth? Young Young Boys? Youth Boys U14's?
