Forever In Our Shadow

Forever In Our Shadow

As usual the superb match report will come from Mr Stillman, but I just can not let this occassion pass without comment.

Believe it or not (I don't care really) I fully intended to end this evening with a graceful article, whatever the result.

If we'd have won (which of course we did) I was going to show my gratitude to Spurs for their part in an enthralling cup tie, that over two legs has produced some scintillating football and many memorable moments.

If we'd have lost, through gritted teeth admittedly, I was going to offer congratulations to our poor neighbours and wish them luck in the final.

That was my intention.

However, considering Tottenham's belief that they have the greatest supporters in the world of football, they were easily out sung by the Ashburton faithful. That is until the 'fans' from the Lane boisterously sang the vile song that I will not acknowledge by quoting.

Considering the lengths both Arsenal & Chelsea went through to make sure Mr Cole wasn't abused in any which way by Gooners who travelled to Stamford Bridge, how the visiting Spuddies are consistently allowed to omit this filth in regular bursts is astonishing.

It is with the sickening thought of that song in mind that I say...........

GLENN HODDLE, MARTIN JOL, RICKY VILLA, JURGEN KLINSMANN, COCK AND BALL, ROBBIE 'THE POINTER' KEANE, HATETHEGOONS, JIMMY GREAVES, GARRY LINEKAR, PAUL GASCOINE........YOUR BOYS TOOK ONE HELL OF A BEATING.

Forever in our Shadow.

As soon as the 3rd goal went in they left in their droves, ive got the photo's to prove it! I hope this is the last we hear about their great support as its the 2nd time this year they have deserted their troops when their troops needed them most! As for that vile song....like ive said before anyone who can make a joke about child abuse does not belong in a football ground....there were 5000 of them to my left.

spuds fans were abysmal. Only offered token efforts at 'vocality' and decided to sing only once they'd scored. That didnt last long. If we have a library, they mave a morgue... »»Arsene Knows««
