News from the Lane

I know a lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans, but they are not my favourite team in the world (thinks: 1999 League Cup final; I preferred the one the year after). But no-one can accuse them of not mounting an international challenge. As tonight's Evening Standard reminds us, 'Martin Jol's side toured the country last summer and won a friendly tournament organised by the Korea-based Moonies religious cult.'* Way to go, Spurs. But how funny would it have been to read that they had lost the tournament?

* Raoul Simons, 'Spurs eye up Korea move for shirt deal', 3 November 2005.
(Admittedly, writing this means I can never pour scorn on the Pepsi Max Challenge Cup again...)
