That Life of Brian sketch with Cleese hollering ‘Oh yes he is. I should know, I’ve followed a few!’ must surely have had some footings in the world of football.
‘At 2-0 up everything was perfect, then at 2-2 the judgements changed quickly… we’re not interested in those voices. We’re going to London to qualify for the next round… best wishes to all those who really want the best for Juventus.’
Not my words, but those of the living legend that Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain thinks he is.
Look mate, ‘those voices’ are the ones that pay your wages. Two nil and you flipped it up!
I firmly believe that last night has damaged Juventus.
Spurs weren’t perfect last night, and that was the how deep the roots of the problem went. It was an utterly imperfect Spurs that pulled the Italian’s undergarments down in their own back yard.
Higuain will have more to worry about than ‘armchair critics’ when Juve land in London come March.
The spectre of Spurs will peer over the Old Lady’s shoulders for some time to come.
