Glory Glory Night At The Lane

The White Hart Lane Mystery

Well then. For 20-odd minutes at White Hart Lane, it looked as if Boro’ fans would be consigning their history books to, uh, history ahead of the latest reprint taking account of another glorious FA Cup triumph. But as Robbo’s tormented expression showed at the final whistle, this time it just wasn’t meant to be.

The finer details of the match may be nothing more than a footnote to the scoreline now, but why let that stop us from eulogising about them? It took two superbly taken goals from Jermain Defoe – a poor man’s Darren Bent (allegedly) – and Gareth Bale’s foot-led assault on Robbo’s boot for our esteemed opponents to win through.

Ah well. Time for the scores on the door:

Day7 – ‘Arry told Joe Hart after the game he won’t be needed at the Euros.
Henry7 – His grandfather won the Double, but he never won the Conference.
Ashton8 – In 50 years time, there’ll be a statue of him in central Stevenage.
King Robbo9 – The next generation of Boro’ fans will all be called Mark. Or Robert.
Darius7 – Solid (As A Rock). And nothing has changed it…
Wilson7 – Denied his much-anticipated “hair-off” with Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
The Essential Byrom7 – Accomplished penalty taker. Learned from Matthew Le Tissier.
Bossie8 – The only man in the world to be feared by Chuck Norris.
Robin8 – Pass and move, pass and move, pass and move. Ad infinitum.
Lairdy Cakes8 – During the first half, his girlfriend was worried for her liberty.
Beardsley7 – He’s still out chasing Spurs defenders. It’s ruining their training.
JMW6 – Lively start before Defoe put the tie to bed without supper.
Reid7 – Not much chance with high balls against Kaboul. Movement is superb.
