I like the format of the Swiss leagues, 10 clubs, wish Croatia can adopt something like that. Ok this year you have two teams out of their depth (Aarau and Bellinzona) but usually the relgation battles, European spots and even title races all come down to the end of the season. Its one of those leagues where a few positive results can boost you up the table and a string of bad ones will get you down to the bottom

As usual is cases of smaller countries getting a club in the CL, FC Zurich are struggling in the league, they were well over-matched in the CL as well.

Hi guys. Can you tell me about Rolf Feltscher? He is on the verge of signing for Parma.
Thanks!

I notice once again a Challenge League side has made the cup final...it always seems to happen in Switzerland where a second division team makes the cup final and represents you in Europe :D

FC Basel will take on Lausanne, a few years ago Bellinzona made the cup final when they were in the second division

FC Basel are the Swiss double winners after beating BSC Young Boys 2:0 to win the league. Congrats to them, they have some nice young talents there

BSC Young Boys to me seemed like a dirty team, I know emotions were running high but they should have had 3-4 red cards not only one. They were elbowing and sliding in late every chance they got. Basel had like 3 players injured...

BSC with a massive choke job as well, weren't they leading the league by 12 points over Basel around the winter break?

Threw it away did Young Boys, big lead at the halfway stage and even after choking so bad, they could still fix it all at home to Basel in the last match. Just simply crumbled under the pressure. Basel now with a young side look forward to next season while Young Boys best player Doumbia leaves for CSKA Moskva.

Basel stormed to their 13th Swiss Super League title on Sunday with a convincing 2-0 win away to nearest rivals Young Boys to complete a league and cup double.

With a far superior goal difference, Thorsten Fink's men needed just a draw at the Stade de Suisse in Bern to claim the crown after Young Boys relinquished control in the title race with a 5-1 defeat away to Luzern midweek.

The RotBlau put themselves firmly in the driving seat shortly before half-time when homegrown Switzerland international winger Valentin Stocker fired the visitors in front.

Basel then doubled their advantage on the hour mark when veteran Australian utility man Scott Chipperfield scored to put the tie and the championship beyond doubt.

Xavier Hochstrasser was sent off with just four minutes remaining to complete a miserable finish to the campaign for the hosts, who finish second for the second year in succession and have now gone 24 years with without league honours.

Basel's win guarantees them a place in the UEFA Champions League next season and ends the three year dominance of rivals Zurich at the top of Swiss football.

Lausanne is making some run :D funny considering they weren't even close to promotion.

To me, FC Basel don't have enough depth to me considered a serious European threat. They have some good young players, but not much off the bench

yup, these guys especially, Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka and Taulant Xhaka, future Kosovo NT stars.

They're not bad at all. Shaqiri is the best of the bunch. He's a sick talent.
ye they are pretty good and young, shaqiri(18yrs), G.Xhaka(17yrs), T.Xhaka(19 yrs)

Xhaka won't play much in reality, maybe a few games here and there. Shaqiri though is a key player and he is already on the Swiss NT. Not sure what the rule is with the Kosovo NT but I'm sure they will be playing full time by the 2014 WC qualifiers

They also got some good African talents like Inkoom and Tembo and even a young Argentinian David Abraham who used to play for their U20s.
