Why sorry Spurs can’t win a league game before Christmas
It’s all gone a bit Pete Rubbish
Oh dear, it was all looking so promising. The young Dos Santos chap, that Modric bloke – these guys were world beaters, damn it! But now Spurs are languishing at the bottom of the table, and after an in-depth gander at things like facts and statistics, The Spoiler has been shocked to find fourteen stonewall reasons why they won’t win before Santa Claus’ next visit. Perhaps they will never win again?
