It’s the Hugo Lloris concussion that’s sweeping the nation – and it’s proving to be quite the missing link in terms of blame circles.
The Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper, stern-stuff-based, was allowed to continue playing after briefly losing consciousness to Romelu Lukaku’s knee on Sunday, a move that has since been described as “totally f*cked up” by brain injury charity Headway.
FIFPro have also weighed in with sniffy disapproval, unwittingly bringing closure to a blame game that has recently seen:
- Spurs fans criticised for persistent use of “the Y word”
- Spurs fans criticising everyone else for trying to dilute their identity, or something
- Spurs fans criticising André Villas-Boas for spending a fortune on players who can’t score properly
- Villas-Boas criticising Spurs fans for being too quiet
- Jan Vertonghen criticising the club’s catering stuff for burning his waffles
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Vertonghen revealed that he has received an official apology and as such that will be the end of the matter as far as he is concerned.
He said: “They were practically inedible, but that’s all water under the bridge now.
“At this point we must all turn our attentions to giving 110% on the pitch, lest our fans bang their heads on the seats in front of them out of frustration and incur concussion from doing so.
“That is when they are most likely to chant ‘Y*d army’ at volumes so low as to be barely audible, which really would be the worst possible scenario in every respect.”
Lloris was unavailable for comment as he was busy pointing at Brad Fiedel and saying, “Mon dieu, il est Bruce Willis!”
