Spurs Fans Attack Manchester United In The Saddest Way Imaginable

by | 24th, September 2014

IN football, you define yourself by your rivals. And Spurs – who last won the league title in 1961 – have decided that the team they can rib and goad is Manchester United, who have won the league title in colour.

This T-shirt was spotted for sale outside White Hart Lane tonight, where Spurs were playing Nottingham Forest (league winners: 1977).

The TV show being lampooned by Wayne Rooney, Angel Dia Maria and Louis Van Gaal (two players who would walk into the Spurs side and a manager who declined the offer to manage Spurs) is Only Fools And Horses, which after peaking in the early 1980s, dribbled on until it excited only as a nostalgic tick, a Christmas treat right up there with adverts for Iceland’s frozen squirrels.

Does anyone buy one of these tops? Is there a single Spurs fan deluded and arcane enough to spend money on this  item so sad it could be the subject of a Digitas lecture on delusion?
