Spurs’ excellent European adventure comes to an end
The best bit…
It was fun while it lasted but, as Gareth Bale understatedly put it:
“Overall we probably lost to the better team over the two legs.”
We’re not going to mention the dreadful goalkeeping. However, we are going to mention a couple of outrageous d*ves from Bale and Luca Modric (amongst others) that would have had the commentators up in arms had it been one of those dirty foreign players with their dirty foreign club.
In all fairness, Gareth Southgate did mention the ‘D’ word at half-time, although it was done in the style of undercover reporter, Hugh Grant, playing a bumbling fellow trying to tell a lady that he, y’know, kind of, maybe, likes her. A Bit. Sort of.
The Spoiler also heard some swearing from one of the players, didn’t it?
Nobody else at Spoiler HQ noticed it, but one sharp-eared and dashingly handsome chap is sure that, at around 83 minutes, he heard someone say something like:
“F*ck off, you f*ckin…”
… before being cut off. Not much to add to it really, but what with all the swearing troubles of recent weeks, we thought it was worth a mention. We think it was Jermain Defoe.
Anyway, it was a rather boring game in which Spurs never looked like getting the four goals they needed and in which Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t break a sweat. His hair looked nice though.
It’s been a totally brilliant campaign from Tottenham though and – without wishing to be TOO patronising to Harry’s men – it was great to see them go out and have a go at teams.
With all due respect to all the lovely Man City fans out there, here’s hoping they get back in it next year. The Spoiler would rather watch Harry and his ‘go out and enjoy yourselves’ attitude than Mancini’s ‘four defenders and five holding midfielders’ stuff…
What do you reckon? Enjoy the ride? Let us know what you think about it all with a cheeky little comment below…
