Look at his attempted goal line clearance against Stevenage, standing on the line, in the most blatant of offside positions, and deflecting in what would otherwise have been the winning goal. Derr Scotty!
And now, with a vital game against Man Utd on the horizon and the game already lost against Arsenal, Scotty gets himself a second yellow three minutes before the end of the game! Derr Scotty!
And why did he do it? Because he can't help himself. Because Scotty plays with his heart but not his head. Because Scotty is the Scarecrow of White Hart Lane. Because Scotty is loveable but brainless.
Captain of England? God help us! How many goals for Spurs so far? None. How many assists? Still only the one and its now the end of February! But he's the holding midfielder you fool! True, too true. And how many goals did Arsenal score yesterday?
