International football disappeared up it’s own flue pipe some time ago.
Along with the domestic trophies it’s been eclipsed by the Champions League.
Beyond the ramblings of the urine stained Tony Adams, even Spurs fans who don’t own a tinfoil hat are wising up to the ‘Spurs Crash Out Of World Cup’ narrative that will inevitably be run should the English Lions make a mess of it in Moscow.
Harry Kane and Garteh Southgate spoke to AFP and Kane revealed that Spurs are second place to England!
“I’d be surprised if the majority of players did not say the World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world. I’d love to win everything with Tottenham, but for me personally the World Cup outweighs them all.”
Southgate has more than smattering of Alan Partridge about him, but I have say, he makes for an authentic sounding England manager.
“We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches. We know we are not the finished article, in fact we’re a long way from, but I think people see signs of progress and enjoy watching us and the manner in which we try to play.”
England were never a big draw for me because they always seemed hostile towards Tottenham. Perryman, Greaves, Crooks and Hoddle all ought to have had bigger international careers than they did.
If England are looking to entertain, the Spurs boys might just oblige them.
