Spaced Out Spurs Sniff A Sparky Sensation

The funniest story of the week must be in Friday's edition of The Sun. Their journalist IAN McGARRY has written a piece whereby it is alleged City boss Mark Hughes has been approached by Tottenham officials about replacing their ailing manager, Juande Ramos.

The Sun quote...

TOTTENHAM have sounded out Mark Hughes about replacing Juande Ramos as boss.

Spurs officials contacted Sparky's advisors yesterday to offer him the job hours before Manchester City`s UEFA Cup tie with Omonia Nicosia.

They slapped a £20million, five-year deal on the table and would love the Eastlands chief to take over during next week's international break.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy decided to act after concluding Spaniard Ramos is now a lame-duck manager.


The only piece that could be considered believable about the above quote is when the author of the article writes...Ramos is now a lame-duck manager.

Why on earth would Hughes want to leave Manchester City, a club destined to be one, if not the biggest club on the planet?

The way Tottenham are playing, there is every chance they'll be playing in next seasons Championship. Would Sparky want to lower himself to such a fete? Of course not.

The Sun's article may have made back page headlines, but the only thing the tabloid has done in my household and that is made the nearest bin.

Spurs have issued a statement denying it. http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news/articles/clubstatement031008.html. Obviously done it before Hughes laughs his socks off in a live interview. Comical - just Like Spurs season so far!

That's beyond embarrassing. The Spuds fans who were on here crowing about City's upcoming implosion during Corlukagate must be in disbelief.

This article must have embarrased the Sun no-end. I bet they take the article down from their web page.

I am very surprised that such a garbage newspaper reaches the Tudor household.

I am very surprised that such a garbage newspaper reaches the Tudor household - alphieblues To be fair alphie the Sun doesn't pass my doorstep. It was a figure of speech!
Tudor
Thank goodness !!

As I thought, the Sun have removed the story from their web pages. I bet Tottenham officials gave them hell.
Tudor
never even worried it was going to happen......obvious dross...

what was it JB 'The Machine' I think its seized. Perhaps if we go down, Charlie might want to come back just like SWP. I wind up from the media against City, they must be really desperate.
Buzz Lightyear
An all time classic!

and we said you couldn't make it up

Yes "The Machine" has had to go in for an MOT. I think we should bid £1m for Charlie in the summer. He'll make good cover for next year's Carling Cup!

When the hacks have no real news to write about, they sip on a Pimms and dream whistfully about how wonderful the world would be if there was a never-ending story for them to pontificate upon. And get paid for. And how very clever they would appear to the rest of humanity hanging onto their every sage comment... Could it really be that you could get bored with the adulation? Or would the waves of pleasure sweep the messianic journalist higher and higher into the wispy clouds of ... no of course not. Lazy hacks once again making it all up as they go along.
