Spurs - So nearly the bonfire of the vanities in Bern!
Well that was very nearly hilarious. What was it, 25 minutes and Spurs were already 3-0 down to a bunch of Swiss no marks? How bad were the Cockyfools at the back - as bad as we were at Villa to tell the truth. Had the Kids of Bern taken their chances, they could have had six!
I loved the TV close ups on 'Arry's 'ead. At one point I was sure it was going to turn 360 degrees, Exorcist fashion, unscrew and fly off into space! His face was puce, his double chin grew ten more chins and developed into one mass of tortoise flesh and he was up and down from that bench like a guy with piles. If only the Infants from Bern had kept their nerve and attacked for the full 90 minutes!
How poor were Dawson and Bassong? How awful was Assou-Ekotto? And how well did the Swiss Toddlers take their early chances? Tottenham came, preened themselves and were cut to ribbons! If the infant substitute had taken his two chances in the second half, the tie would be all over bar the Tottenham whinging!
The pity is, at 2-3, Tottenham are favourites to progress in the second leg. If 'Arry swallows his pride and picks Keane from the off, I reckon Tottenham are nailed on certainties to go through. But who knows? The Tiny Tots looked impressive on the break so if Tottenham over commit...
You win nothing with kids apparently; well 'Arry will be hoping that's right! And watching Palacios tonight, you can see why he wants Parker! Dear God, watching Tottenham tonight, they should bid for Tomkins!
