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.

And it wasn’t just about football,

Spursy has already found a place in the urban dictionary.


To consistently and inevitably fail to live up to expectations. To bottle it.

My team only got to the last 16 they’re a bit spursy.


To have visions of grandeur / to be immensely deluded only to mess it all up again and again and again whilst pretending not to care.

With every passing year Spurs and their pitiful fans become more and more Spursy.

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.
