Good evening and welcome …to whatever this is.
Tottenham Hotspur versus some Russians in the Champions League.
Perhaps the most important facet of this game is that it comes just days before we play Manchester United, which is a vital match, if we are to stand any chance of qualifying for next year’s Champions League.
THFC have clearly decided to get proactive ahead of tonight’s big game.
Bewilderingly, this initiative consists of asking Pav (who is Russian) to remind us how he enjoyed playing for us.
“I enjoyed every single moment during my three-and-a-half years there, because at every home match the stands were full of fans, even when it was a friendly game. This is great for the players, it’s the reason to play and my whole stay at Tottenham was full of pleasure for me.”
If you thought that was peculiar, then wheeling out Christian Zeige to predict a 3-0 win for us takes us into LSD sampling territory.
