Tottenham turn humiliation into entertainment
If you had offered most of Spurs’ players the chance to call off last night’s Champions League clash with Inter Milan at half-time there would have been plenty of takers. At 4-0 down and reduced to 10 men, it was not looking very promising for Harry Redknapp’s boys.
Luckily no such offer was made and the match continued, allowing us to witness a splendid hat-trick as Gareth Bale single-footedly fired Spurs back to respectability. They still lost the match, but 4-3 looks a lot better on paper than 4-0 and Bale really stole the show.
