FEATURE ATTRACTION NOT BASELESS DISTRACTION
Sorry, Jose, but you cannot treat Tottenham fans like mugs who can be bullied into his way of thinking.
Take his outrageous comments about the penalty decision in the north London derby that only an Arsenal season ticket holder would have been blinded enough by his passion to give it.
Actually, no. At best it was 50-50 decision – most people around the Emirates seemed to think it was a fair shout.
His diatribe made great copy, though, and were the headlines of the following day. Not Tottenham’s woeful performance.
But Spurs fans are not stupid and if he continues to send out the most exciting attacking force the club has assembled for decades to play like mice parking their little mouse bus, they will not make do with unfairly blaming Michael Oliver for long.
