Spurs are tempting fate by having a separate shirt sponsor for their Champions League campaign – risky business from Daniel Levy given that his club still haven’t qualified for the competition proper. Anyway, modeled by the aesthetically-challenged Gareth Bale, here’s what they’ll be wearing against Young Boys Bern:

Peter Crouch, The City of Manchester Stadium, May 2010. ‘Maybe Tottenham…but they always let you down don’t they’ – Mark Lawrenson. Utterly forgettable when taken out of its context, but one that the white side of North London will never forget. Kaboul stumbled past Bellamy on the right, and thumped in a deflected cross that […]

So. Many. Reasons. Since arriving in August 2002, Senegalese international Diouf has spat, cheated, and smirked his way through eight years of Premier League football.
