Aldgate Girl Supports Spurs

Sources close to Martin Jol today revealed that they were especially pleased to hear 'S' would be watching THFC in their quest for European glory at the lane tonight. 'It'sch jusht vat I am liking.' said Jol. Whilst father and son travel to the lane to see Spurs turn around the 1-2 deficit (a la Man u?) from the 1st leg in Seville, S will be keeping an eye from the comfort of her sofa. Matt is particularly pleased: ' I can't believe that she actually a) wants Spurs to win, b) gives a damn, c) doesn't want me to shop for shoes instead. I have found my dream girl.'

The dodgy penalty decision that let Sevilla back into the game last Thursday means that Spurs will have to go at them from the off. Berbatov needs to find his feet again after a couple of disappointing games in an otherwise sparkling season. He also needs to avoid a booking if he's to see the first leg of the semi. An early goal will settle Spurs but, if it's anything like a lot of the evening cup games at the lane this year, Spurs will leave it late and make sure that everyone is obliged to stay to the end, even if they have to drive back to Yorkshire after the game. Extra time looks like the most likely 90 minute outcome though a strong performance from King if he makes the starting 11 could bolster a defence that's been depleted by injury for much of the season. Chimbonda back on the right, Lee out left and Dawson and King in the middle will surely worry the Sevilla attack. Spurs best hope is that Seville try to defend their lead. S predicts a tight match and says that whoever wins Lennon will remain gorgeous.

Meanwhile, reports that an army of wheelchair using fans have pledged revenge for an assault on one of their number during the first leg have been played down by Police. 'We have a special wheelchair stinger in place and, of course, we will continue to position these hooligans in the crappiest position in the ground where they are most likely to get hit in the face by the ball.' Rio Ferdinand is said to be on hand if things turn ugly.
