Football news, rumours and lies.

Tottenham Hotspur fans – renowned for being the pickiest in the world – are now irritating football supporters across the country with their constant blathering on about getting to the quarter finals of the Champions League.
One Leyton Orient fan told Inside the Sheepskin that a work colleague of his who supports Spurs had become the “bane of his life” with his constant bleating about a slight form of success in Europe.
“To be honest, I preferred it when he complained constantly about only having five top class strikers at the club or not having won the league that they have a god-given right to since 1961” said the fan. “I support a League One club and make the best of it. Now I have him emailing me 20 times a day asking me if I think they’ll win the Champions League, how much better Spurs are than Arsenal and how the Champions League is much more important than any domestic trophy.”
Spurs fans are snapping up t-shirts from their White Hart Lane club shop that read “at least the eighth best team in Europe” in their hundreds, and employers in North London have been deluged with requests for the date of the Champions League final off work from any Spurs fans that work for them.
Producers of the BBC’s “606” programme had to shorten the length of their programme last week to just half an hour. A source told us that “without Spurs fans calling in to complain about everything, the content of the programme was limited to one Manchester United fan from London, a couple of Liverpool fans using the phrase “nobody is bigger than the club” and a Manchester City fan weeping for three minutes before hanging up.”
It is thought that the current wave of optimism will be quashed once Tottenham are knocked out by Shakhtar Donetsk in the next round.
