Tottenham Hotspur fans are dimwitted twitterers

Football managers have big egos - Chris Foy gets verbal abuse
I see that fans of Tottenham Hotspur football club, or more correctly Tottenham Hotspur football company, have been bombarding Sir Chris Hoy, the cyclist, with rude and abusive tweets. They don't know the difference between him and Chris Foy, the referee. It was Mr.Foy's refereeing skills that they are most peeved about. They feel he made a string of incorrect decisions, including the sending off of defender Younes Kaboul in the London club's 2-1 defeat to Stoke City on Sunday.

Now I realise not all fans of Spurs are dim, but these ones are. Not only have they made themselves look foolish but they take it all too seriously. As the Premiership is now exclusively big business the scoring of goals is only to help boost profits. The fans are customers, not members and they are treated like a commodity. No amount of huffing and puffing will blow the house down. These fans should understand that this is an entertainment industry with a sporting element. If they want to sound off, it's those who run the show, not the referee who tries to see the game is played.


Don't worry Sir Alex, next red card for Kompany my friend.
