A close shave

My friend Iain Dale asked me if I wanted to go to the West Ham v Spurs match this afternoon but I would be sitting in with the Home fans. Thankfully I couldn't take him up on his offer because if I had I would probably have endangered my life and the lives of all those around me. There is no way I would have been able to contain myself as Spurs fought back from being 2-0 down with an injury time goal to win 3-4. It was end to end football and I think on the whole Spurs played pretty poorly - at 3 all I was ready to settle for the point but when Stalteri scored the 4th goal after Green spilled the ball and I ran around the living room cheering, it was then that I realised I would have been beaten up at Upton Park!!
I don't hate West Ham like some Spurs fans but I fear their fate has now been sealed. However, I hope that Sheffield Utd and Manchester City stay up - I think Neil Warnock and Stuart Pearce are refreshingly honest in their post-match commentary, something Wenger should learn.
