Tottenham have a wheeler-dealer judas manager named Harry "back-hander" Redknapp, he pays over the odds for any player going and will leave his club at the slightest sniff of a better paid opportunity.
Kev (Spurs fan in denial): Yeah but we were playing our reserve team anyway (lies) so didn't care, just wait till they come to White Hart Lame.
Aaron: I'll wait and I'll laugh at you AGAIN you dirty yid.
This particular act originated in the tranny district of Montreal, located near Rue Ontario.
Famous for having won only two league championships (a bit like Chelsea, only worse). That's an amazing 6 times as few as local superclub, Arsenal. In fact, there are several notable events in history that happened just after the "mighty" lillywhites won their last league trophy: The Beatles had not even had their first hit, the Berlin Wall had not been erected and man was yet to set foot on the moon. They have been relegated a few times. Not like Arsenal, who have remained in the top flight of English football for ninety years now, regularly winning championships. Also famous for having mentally unstable fans that are unable to read and write and think they play a brand of football that can be witnessed at nearby superclub, and altogether classier footballing institution with more history, The Arsenal.
Sane person "What, the mighty Barnet?"
Mindless delinquent "Nah mate, Tottenham Hotspur, innit"
Sane person "Oh you dirty little poor person. Hear's the number of the nearest mental home. And get your hand out of my pocket!"
Have a great history and a long list of great players, but are habitually undermined by bad managers, bad luck, bad chairmen, bad referees or a combination of any number of the above. Oh, alright, bad players as well.
The sort of team that has the players and infastructure to step up into the Top Six of the Premiership, but have suffered several false dawns in the past 25 years to be wary of expecting achievments of note, at least until they win two games in a row, at which point we're edging towards the UEFA Cup with no problem whatsoever, despite the fact we are one of the most inconsistent teams in the country, even when we aren't being screwed out of goals, clear-cut penalties and countless other refereeing decisions each and every seasons, which racks up to the traditional 8-12 placing. Oh alright, and managing to fit in at least three liabilities into the squad, two of which usually in defence. And having Alan Sugar not funding us for the best part of a decade, allowing both Arsenal and Chelsea to overtake us and brag about their five minutes in the sun.
Easy target for superior Arsenal and Chelsea fans and other glory seekers, and genuine bile from West Ham and Leeds (local rivals 300 miles up the M1, obviously). Still, at least Charlton like us, which is nice.
