Carlo Cudicini's career hangs in the balance this weekend after a horrific motorcycle crash that saw him fracture both his wrists and badly injure his pelvis. The 36-year-old Tottenham Hotspur 'keeper was pulled from the mangled remains of his BMW motorbike after a collision with a Ford Fiesta.

Yes, the game is that massive...

For a start, there were more red cards dished out in one weekend than ever before, Rafa and Liverpool were well beaten at Fulham, while Spurs learned what life is really like at the top.
There were a couple of big stories this weekend, the most notable being the Reds succumbing to defeat at Craven Cottage which, in turn, rendered their only victory in October, against Manchester United, almost meaningless.
Their tilt at the title is all over...
