Midweek TV Preview: 2 - 4 February 2010

Tuesday 2 February

19.45 Crystal Palace v Wolverhampton Wanderers, FA Cup 4th Round Replay, ITV4
A week of cup action lies ahead with some matches that are mostly of parochial interest only. Starting with this FA Cup replay at Selhurst Park. The Eagles have lost Victor Moses to Wigan but had not been playing him in the Cup anyway. They were set to lose Danns and Clyne to Southampton and Wolves respectively but both declined the move. This either means that that a massively rich sugar daddy is about to take over the club or the wages offered was hardly worth the travel. Hmmm.

19.30 Kilmarnock v Celtic, SPL, ESPN
Will Robbie Keane start for Celtic? You bet he will. Tony Mowbray's team maybe 10 points behind Rangers but the ex Spurs striker is Celtic mad and will score a bucket load of goals this season, starting tomorrow.

Wednesday 3 February

19.00 FC Twente v Heracles Almelo, Eredivisie, ESPN
A rare midweek foray into the Dutch League and a chance to catch up on an old chum.

19.45 Rangers v St Johnstone, Co-operative Insurance Cup, Semi-Final, BBC1 Scotland
A Scottish League Cup tie only available and of interest in Scotland to be frank.

19.45 Leeds United v Tottenham Hotspur, FA Cup 4th Round Replay, ITV1
Definitely the most intriguing tie of the week for neutrals. Yours truly confidently predicted on the Sound Of Football podcast a couple of weeks ago that Spurs would end Leeds' cup dream convincingly. Now that my prediction has gone the way of Palace's play-off chances I can easily see the League 1 club pulling off a shock. On the other hand, Spurs are really good so you never know. Promises to be emotional.

20.30 Sevilla v Getafe, Semi-Final 1st Leg, Copa Del Rey , Sky Sports 2/HD2
Sevilla must see the Cup as a relatively easy way of picking up some silverware since Real and Barca are out of the picture. A stonking home win is definitely on the cards against an average Getafe side.

Thursday 4 February

20.30 Atletico Madrid v Racing Santander, Semi-Final 1st Leg, Copa Del Rey, Sky Sports 2/HD2
With Atletico on the rise, the Madrid club will have thoughts of picking up a cheap pot and salvaging their hitherto disastrous season. Having said that, a cursory glance at Google News reveals that Sergio Canales is still at Racing. Perhaps the young whizz kid is dreaming of cup glory before his inevitable Summer move to CF Somewhere Else.
