Tottenham's King Arrested - Set Up the Guillotine!
Staggered and amazed by Tottenham edging ahead of West Ham on the back of a lucky point at Everton, Tottenham's Ledley King allegedly could not resist a night of unbridled celebration and so headed for...ahem, Soho...where he promptly got involved in a fight.
Amazing isn't it? His knees aren't up to playing a game of footy for England but, allegedly, they are perfectly fine for giving somebody a good kicking!
Still, you can't really blame Ledley for his celebrations. Tottenham have won absolutely nothing again this season, fighting relegation rather than challenging for a place in the top 4 for most of the season. Pulling level on points with little old West Ham United is the only thing these cockerels have to crow about these days.
Two games to go, and the big question in football is not who will be relegated, who will win the Prem or who will win the Champions League but can mega spending Tottenham hold on to eighth place? Nails are being bitten to the quick, strangers are being kicked in the street, key players missing, 'Arry's 'ead is twitching...the tension is unbearable.
Can they do it? Can Tottenham cling hold of eighth place even without missing players? The whole of the football world is holding its breath in an agony of expectation and doubt. Two games and six points to play for, two games and eighth place hangs in the balance, two games and...it's no good, the tension is just too much for me, I can't take it any more! I say, give them eighth place and have done with it. After spending all the money, surely eighth place is the very least that could be expected?
Eighth place after sploshing all that dosh? Isn't that akin to West Brom being relegated?
