“April Fools Was Last Week” “New contract talks coming up?” The Latest Quotes Out Of Spurs Provoke A Mixed Fan Reaction
By Harry Hotspur -

By now, it’s quite possible that many readers will be aware of Eric Dier’s somewhat bizarre statement that he wants his ashes scattered at Spurs. I reminded of an occasion when a friend’s small child who was telling his dad that he loved him more than anyone else in the whole wide world, to which he replied, ‘That’s very sweet, but I’d be quite happy if you just tidied up your room now and again.”

Committing to having one’s ashes scattered is what one might call a grand gesture, and as per my friend with his messy kid, I’d be more interested in Dier developing a reputation for being a great player, than being promised the pledging to rest his mortal remains on our grass.

The dead cat strategy is the introduction of a dramatic, shocking, or sensationalist topic to divert discourse away from a more damaging topic. This stinks of a kaput feline.

Could it be that there are about to be some bad vibes from within the dressing room exposed, and Eric wants to get his evidence in first, in case his name is mentioned?

Again, the man with the real worry here is Daniel Levy. José Mourinho is an honourable enough chap, but he’s also extremely wealthy, and one might worry about just how watertight his non-disclosure agreement is?

These fans comments were typical of responses to Eric’s ‘solemn pledge’…

ps maybe inappropriate to mention it in this article but John White who was killed by lightning on Crews Hill golf course had his ashes spread on the pitch at WHL.

The next day they cut the damn grass!

I had this on good authority from my mate’s Dad who inherited White’s Spurs’ blazier. The chap was a carpet fitter and knew alot of the players in the 60s and early 70s.

Why?

Eric Diers ashes would be the only piece of history in the place. White Hart Lane I could understand but now? Can you even scatter ashes on a retractable surface?

It reminds me of a cartoon book of many moons ago by Simon Bond, “A HUNDRED AND ONE USES FOR A DEAD CAT”.

The most inventive idea was for a pencil sharpener…..ouch.

I’ll leave you to work out the fate I have in mind for Dier !

Yes, I can just imagine a stuffed Dier, perched precariously on the corner of Daniel Levy’s unicorn ivory veneered desk as He approaches from behind with a blunt HB pencil pilfered from WHSmith along with a bottle of Shoko Besakit.

“Your wish is granted Eric, well…… almost as He laughs unceremoniously through the tears”

I would like to see his ashes scattered on a wind farm personally
