Santa, gifts and strippers

It’s hard to believe that a squad of world famous Premier League footballers could get caught at an unauthorised Christmas party, drinking and dancing with strippers.

It’s not like it’s never happened before.

So Spurs must be cursing their luck after telling boss Harry Redknapp that they were off on a golfing holiday, then seeing the gruesome evidence splashed all over the morning front pages.

It's almost as if new-fangled phones are somehow also cameras, too.

But Harry is no mug and has promised that he will deal with the entire team severely.

He’s not just a pretty face, you know.

Meanwhile, on the field Spurs are writing headlines for the right reasons: Peter Crouch’s two goals secured an easy away win at Blackburn, moving his team up to fifth place.

Sounds like a great excuse for a celebration.

Chelsea sit top of the tree this Christmas, but failed to fully capitalise on Manchester United’s loss to Fulham with a 1-1 draw at Upton Park.

Highlight of the match was Mike Dean’s effort to win over the West Ham faithful by ordering the always-popular Blues midfielder Frank Lampard-Deflection to take his penalty three times.

Tis the season of goodwill, especially at the City of Manchester Stadium where defences of City and Sunderland spent the afternoon offering gifts to their opponents.

City eventually came out on top with a 4-3 victory, and it certainly looked as though Mark Hughes’ Christmas had been saved by Santa as Roque Santa Cruz helped himself to two goals.

Sadly it was a little too late for Hughes, who ended up getting sacked.

You could see that coming a mile away - the joke and the sacking.


Merry Christmas everyone.
