A great tuesday night

Big Brits news and something about a football game

“Bye-bye, AC Milan”


Well, that was a bloody enjoyable night, wasn’t it? Tinie Tempah’s thrilling victory of the best British breakthrough act award and the gong for best single for Pass Out really made The Spoiler’s evening.

Rihanna looked totally hot in a weird dress, Chezza Cole flaunted her overgrown garden tattoo again and Plan B set fire to a fake policeman to represent something called ‘controversy’. Truly a return to the glory days of Sam Fox and Mick Fleetwood.

Oh, and there was also a pretty interesting game of football…

The Spoiler is normally the Switzerland of football blogs – as long as the game is the winner we don’t mind who comes out on top. But after all the hissy fits, horrendous two-footed lunges and pushing of assistant managers we REALLY wanted Spurs to beat AC Milan – and they did! – thanks to an excellent Aaron Lennon run and a neat Peter Crouch finish.

It may not have been the Greatest Performance in History that Graeme Souness seemed to think it was at the final whistle, but Harry Redknapp’s vagabond mix-and-match bunch were effing good. Sandro was good, Wilson Palacios was good and Michael Dawson was brilliant (is there an argument for him replacing John Terry in the England team based on their respective form this season?).

Potentially the best bit of the whole evening though, was watching Souness and Redknapp Snr indulging in a bit of ‘my dad’s bigger than your dad’ stuff by claiming that if Joe Jordan and Gennaro Gattuso were put naked into a room with no windows and only a razor blade each, then the Scot would end the Italian in five minutes.

Gattuso was totally out of order (as you can see below), but in all fairness he has apologised, saying:

“I lost control. There is no excuse for what I did. I take my responsibilities for that. I was nervous. We were both speaking Scottish, something that I learned when I played in his home city of Glasgow, but I can’t tell you what we said.”

It was a brilliant night for Spurs and should provide a nice contrast to Arsenal’s game against Barcelona tonight as they attempt to pass each other into submission while we stroke our chins and pretend it’s as exciting as an Italian going mental.

So, what did you make of it all? Were Spurs totally amazing? What should happen to Gattuso? Should Flamini be hung drawn and quartered? What do Spurs do in the next leg? We’re intrigued to know what you think, so let us know below…

    Love the fact that Joe Jordan didn’t even flinch.


    Gattuso apologised, so that should be an end to it.
