Spurs: Erik Thorstvedt gets AVB’s praise for bootlegging Garth Crooks’ Beatles and a dead Elvis

AT the end of August, former Spurs player and current Match of the Day pundit Garth Crooks opined that Gareth Bale will be no great loss to Tottenham:

“Spurs have sold Elvis and signed the Beatles. Of course, the players now have got to go out there and do the business this season. But Daniel really has done the business for the club this summer.”

Nice line. But while some of the Spurs newboys wonder who gets to be John Lennon and who gets to be Ringo Starr, others were ignoring Garth; like Express journalsit Matthew Dunn, who writes today:

The summer’s longest saga needed to be ended in one satisfying punchline. Somebody, somewhere, was bound to provide it, but who would have thought a Norwegian would? During an on–pitch interview at half–time, former Tottenham keeper Erik Thorstvedt said: “We have sold Elvis and bought the Beatles!”

But he’s not the only one not listening to Garth:

Andre Villas–Boas reddened visibly at the observation, as embarrassed by the compliment of the way he has reinvested Bale’s world–record fee in a number of talented stars as he was tickled by it. “Erik is very creative,” he chuckled. “I like it… it sounds good!”

Tonight, AVB, Garth Crooks is Pete Best…
