If the strap fits...

Rumour reaches The Rainbow Connection (to adopt a stylistic tic apparently beloved of bloggers) that Danny Murphy's recent exit from Charlton Athletic to Tottenham may have been hastened by a training ground bust-up he had with one of the female staff there, who had the audacity to disobey one of his orders and was thus splenetically informed by the binman-lookalike that: "My watch is worth more than your house...!"

Which understandably irked a few of his Charlton colleagues, and so one brief roughing-up later he was on his way north of the river to join the ever-increasing army of Spurs central midfielders (last update: 143 and counting...)

Excellent. If (if, if, IF) this is true, it seems we've finally signed an adequate replacement for Darren Anderton, whose charming chat-up line of choice was reputed to be: "I bet you can't guess how much this watch cost..."

When are we (spurs) just going to either cement fourth spot or mess it up and give it to Arsenal? Its the time in between that is annoying. Reminds me of a funny Futurama quote : "I wish they would just destroy humanity and get it over with, it's the waiting around I can't stand".

Indeed. Or as John Cleese's character so aptly put it in 'Clockwise': "It's not the despair. I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand."
