I’m not one for harbouring any hatred towards the north Londoners, it’s just football. But this widely held media led belief that Tottenham are some stylish, rampaging super team does wear a bit thin.
Yesterday, Spurs were beaten by a pragmatic Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final, not the first team to be overcome by a stubborn Jose Mourinho side. It was their eighth consecutive semi-final defeat. Chelsea could themselves, lose to Southampton this afternoon. It really just is football, it’s just banter.
Following the game #Spursy was trending on Twitter.

Salah scores again and you lose the semi-final but cheer up Harry that beards coming along. #Spursy

And it wasn’t just about football,
This evening I dressed up real nice, drove into town in the sun, parked up and strolled leisurely to the restaurant. It was full and now I’m hungry at home #Spursy

Spursy has already found a place in the urban dictionary.
I could go on and on. Let’s hope Chelsea make it to the final this afternoon. Certainly their Wembley record is better than Tottenham’s. I don’t want to see #ChelskiFail trending this afternoon.
