...champions. So that's Spurs' lot in the Champions League draw then, Italians, Germans and Dutch.
...yet again so close but so far. Just like his time with Spurs Big Martin Jol's Hamburg just fell short of making the UEFA Cup final with another refereeing howler to add to UEFAs list.
...just when you thought the Wally with the Brolly couldn't get worse...a new level of cretinism from the McClown.
