More Fun At Spurs Expense


  • I hope this chef will be working in Paris next week - nice shirt that :)

  • Without starting some big row I find it distasteful how some Arsenal supporters are behaving with regards to this incident. It's not sporting at all. You should just keep your mouth shout and not take the piss out of the food poisoning.

    If you were a "mob", you would be the gutless shites who attack outnumbered scarvers. You're not acting like a man at all and I hope Barca gives you a right hiding.

    PS - I can't stand Spurs myself but you lot have crossed the line

  • Is it possible to keep your mouth "shout" or should one keep it "shut?"

    Also, where is this line located? Robbie Fowler's dining room table?

  • Yes, it should be "shut" - thank you.

    Fowler is quite erudite and I'm sure he has an engraving of this somewhere.

    In all seriousness. Arsenal legimately pipped Tottenham for fourth on the last day; the food poisoning should be a footnote. Unless Arsenal win the Champions League, they've won f$%k all this year. Yet, their fans are becoming insufferable.

  • Dear Miss Manners,

    I've read your column about insufferability and want to ask you to have some perspective.

    This is just a bit of fun about our rivals getting undone by a little food poisoning. It's not like we're making fun of a team's plane crash, a player having a heart attack, or a throwing around a completely insulting rumor about homosexuality or pederasty, or racially insulting. Save your high dudgen for something that matters.

    I can't see that were the positions reversed and it was Henry's head in the toilet and Pires' squeaky bum that Spurs fans wouldn't be having a field-day.

    The world is grim enough and now you suggest that you can't take the piss out of your sporting rivals?
    Schoolmarmish tat about having condescending praise for those plucky boys over at White Hart Lane for finally putting together a team that puts up a challenge for the first time in the history of the Premiership? So how many congratulatory notes did you lot from the Cottage send over to Stamford Bridge this year? Yawn.

    You enjoy the view from up there on your moral high-horse. I'll be laughing here in the gutter.

  • Well said Steve - its not like anyone is laughing at Spurs because some terrible tragedy befell them - its laughing at the Spuddies because its damn funny and yes they would be laughing back just as Scouse fans would laugh at the Teds and the Teds would laugh at the Scouse and i am sure Fulham would laugh at the er...Palace fans or whoever gives a toss. And Chris, it looks like it wasnt food poisoning but a virus they gave to themselves but I am still going to laugh at them.
    Footy is about banter - I just had lunch with a Newcastle mate who thought it was hilarious as well; granted I would be pissed if it happened to Arsenal but.. it didnt - it happened to the biggest bunch of whingers since you.
