Love Thy Neighbour

Love Thy Neighbour

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!

Not surprising at all. if u've ever come across a bunch who cant learn from their mistakes, it would be the spuds followed closely by their excuse for a football team !! Man, when are they going to learn?

I'd have thought you would have said councting your cockrells before they hatch. Let's face it, they only got this far because they got a bye in the last round. Their form was pitiful when they were due to play those games, and would not have had a chance. Oh well, I guess they do see it as their bast chance of Europe for next season.

now thats a strange thing to do but i reckon he has a point, they will sell out as soon as they come on sale never mind who is in it... alot of people just go to the final regardless of whose in it.

I went to see Parma v Antwerp at Wembley in the ECWC Final and it was banged out with people not really supporting either team.
