My neighbour is a Tottenham Hotspur supporter.
Over the past 12 months, there has been enough pulling of the leg between both of us due to our team`s performance of lack of. Although at the moment I seem to hold the upper hand due to consistent league position and the poor little spuds demise.
So before I left for the Emirates on Saturday, he pops over to have a quick chat, adding that he actually hopes he win against Reading to do Spuds a favour! He then announces the most shocking statement I have yet to hear from a spud in a long time.
"I have applied for the Ballot for Hampden Park," he gleefully tells me.
"What? Why?,' I curiously ask.
"Err for the UEFA final!'
'Erm dude your not there yet!'
'Yeah but its only 2 games' he points out.
'Actually its 4, both ties being home and away'
'Yeah but we will be there, most of my mates are applying already! '
And with that more ribbing followed.
I mean talking about counting your chickens before they have hatched! The sheer arrogance in these supporters thinking that they are already in a European Final is beyond belief; I was also amazed that you can apply already for a final which doesn't have any teams in it yet!
I figured because he was decorating, the paint fumes must of gone to his head!
