recently, a story was featured concerning David
Beckhams engagement to Victoria Adams (commonly
known as Posh Spice). The presenter was heard
to say that the announcement had been made at a large
Cheshire hotel and they could hardly wait to show the
world their rings !!!!
noticed that Tony Gale (on Sky TV) seems to be turning
into Ron Manager from The Fast Show ??? He even said
Isnt it at the end of one of his
sentences. Further to this Gale has also distinguished
himself on GoonerGold, when after the Spurs v West Ham
match he interviewed John Moncur and failed to ask him
about the incident that resulted in Abou being sent off.
Probably because he knew the answer he would get.
Jonathon Pearces comments in the phone-in after the
game did him great discredit - insinuating that Vega
would cry off from the match at Upton Park next season
(bit hopeful there) and when reprimanded by a caller, he
said he would take it all back if Vega said he had
nothing to do with getting the West Ham player sent off.
It was all about foreign players making the most of
incidents such as this, but did he notice Moncur going to
ground after inadvertently being caught on the head with
a knee ?????? Oh, and Berkovic in the Blackburn FA Cup
game. Need I say more ??
The experts seem
to be taking great glee in Tottenhams present
predicament. Dave Bassett seemed very happy to state that
we would be one of the teams to go down. Well, he would
say that wouldnt he ?? As an ex-Womble hed
take any chance to kick us when were down (the
bottom of the league).
Is it just me or
on the same day that we lost to Barnsley in the FA Cup,
did Carlton Palmer get fined for making comments to the
referee in Southamptons Third Round tie at Derby ?
And it was that referee - Gerald Ashby - whos officiating that very evening provoked a quote from Les
Ferdinand that it was the worst display hed ever
seen from a ref and that included park matches. The next
week, after the Newcastle v Tranmere FA Cup match, John
Aldridge criticised the ref for treating his team like
second class citizens. Spot the connection.
Answers on a postcard to Lancaster Gate.
notice Ramon Vega trying to equal up the number of broken
jaws in the Barnsley FA Cup tie by swinging his arm right
on the final whistle ? Nice try Ramon, but do we really
need anybody else suspended?
Gullitt getting the bullet at Stamford Bridge, eh ??
Seems Basher Bates was glad to get shot of him. A message
to you Rudi; I dread to think what would have happened to
the club if you had stayed longer. They might have gone
bust and could have gone Dutch to share their ground !!
News of Alan
Shearer's alleged fight with Keith Gillespie tells of a
right hook that put the right winger in hospital. It
shows just what a top striker Shearer is !!
claims about the Monaco pitch being like 'a potato patch'
has struck a chord with the owners of the stadium. They
are to change the name of it from the King Louis II to
the King Edwards Stadium.
A recent edition
of Goal magazine featured loyal players including our own
David Howells. Shame they used a picture of Paul Moran
for a young Howellsy.
new manager of Aston Villa, allegedly, was a Spurs fan as
a boy. If that is so, how come that when he was a player he
was always so obnoxious to Spurs fans??
Glad to hear at
the Bolton home game that the people in control of the
Videoscreen have at last changed the music to accompany
the introductory pictures at matches from the dreaded
Eric Clapton's "Bad Luck" to Annie Lennox's
"Revival". Much more apt (he said hopefully).
West Ham are
allegedly short of funds for incoming transfers, so Harry
Redknapp was beside himself when he opened the newspapers
and read about the "Free Deidre (Barlow)" stories !!
The Leeds team
that were on the plane that crashed on the way home after
the West Ham match on 30.3.98 were grateful for George
Graham's defence first policy as he had told them that he
wanted every man at the back !!
notice that the Swiss manager, looked incredibly like
artist David Hockney ??
What if Les
Ferdinand's girlfriend, TV presenter Dani Behr, packed
him in and married ex-Spur, Teddy Sheringham, but refused
to take his name and made him have her surname?? Would he
be Teddy Behr ???
Manchester United fans does it take to change a
light-bulb at Old Trafford ??
Only one, but he
has to come all the way from Torquay !!
What if our
Swiss international centre-half was involved in a clash
with West Ham's French international goalkeeper, would
the headlines read "RAMON - LAMA DING-DONG" ???
One year after
the Labour government were elected into power in Britain,
perhaps it was some sort of synchronicity that Thatcher
of the blue team was sent off in our match at Selhurst
Park against Wimbledon.
In the latest
Walkers Crisps advertisement, featuring Gary Lineker, he
plays a "Mission Impossible" style agent, who
replaces a little girl's Walkers crisps with an inferior
brand, while suspended from the ceiling by a rope. How
many people recognised the "home" that the
little girl goes into when surrounded by security men ??
It is none other than Hackney Town Hall. My, my. How
Golden Gary has come down in the world !!!
that Clive Wilson, the 36 year-old Spurs left back, is
set to be offered a new one year contract, seems to be
directly related to the Spurs chairman hearing a story
about Willo laying on a hospital bed before going for
surgery on an injury sustained in the home match against
Everton. The defender asked how the team had got on and
his dedication to duty so impressed the Spurs supremo
that he wrote a one page article in the Spurs programme
about it. Get ready for a rash of our injured players
enquiring about the team's fortunes when at death's door
as this seems to be a sure-fire way of staying at the
Funny how Alan
Shearer gets a fast lane to Lancaster Gate to clear his
name while all and sundry have to sweat on Graham Kelly
sending out their invitations by fleet footed messenger.
Who said one rule for one ........
Lots of Beckham
jokes following the World Cup:
Q: What is the
difference between David Beckham and an Airfix model??
A: One is a glueless kit...
Q: What is the
difference between David Beckham and a pot of jam??
A: One is a petulant overpaid berk who dashes the hopes
of a nation and the other is a rather tasty fruit
Q: What is the
difference between David Beckham and Posh Spice??
A: Posh Spice doesn't kick out when she's taken from
