Latics and Spurs On Top of the World

Latics and Spurs On Top of the World


Now I know the Premier League is popular but following Latics humiliating defeat at the hands of Spurs on Sunday we seem to have hit the headlines in some peculiar spots around the globe.

There are the usual suspects, The Sydney Herald, New York Times, we even made the North East with both the Sunderland Echo and The Northern Echo (Middlesbrough) but the strangest one for me has to be The Himalayan Times who report Tottenham Run Riot Over Wigan

`Spurs were only 1-0 up at the break, thanks to a goal by Peter Crouch before fellow England striker Defoe ran riot after half-time with Aaron Lennon, an own-goal by Chris Kirkland and Niko Kranjcar`s 90th minute effort adding to the North London club`s tally.`

The Himalayan Times


The Himalayan Times I ask you, the highest point on Earth and they are talking about the Latics, we are truly on top of the world.

I`m alright Yak!

your team was a disgrace, I would be ashamed of the team, they deserved to lose the wage and give it to charity for that performance ... obviously i am pleased as punch we thrashed your team but, disgusted at the fact Wigan would just fall away like that and show up you fans who pay good money to follow them. even portsmouth done you 4 -0 disgusting you have my sympathy ... careful you dont get dragged into a relegation battel as your confidence must be low now COYS!!!!

Infamy, infamy, they've all got it infamy. I'll get my coat. I repeat what I said on another thread - Tottenham fans crow almost as loud as the rags do and it doesn't win them to many friends now does it? E17YID, talk about kicking someone when they're down eh? Were you abused as a child, or do you just abuse yourself?

I feel sorry for you fans as I would hate to see 9 shipped past us ..... however after your stupid post I REALLY REALLY hope this is the start of your team falling away and getting relegated!!

E17YID, you're an embarrassment to the rest of us Spurs fans and are obviously one of the reasons we get a bad rep for being arrogant and obnoxious. If you came on here to brag your a moron and alternatively if you think what you wrote doesn't sound like bragging you're an even bigger moron. I noticed your comment on our forum about the game and you spent more time calling Keane a "Pikey" than actually commenting on the game. Idiot.
