Who’s the mug now, Spurs?

Still recovering from the disappointment of Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League victory, Tottenham Hotspur have been left with effectively worthless mugs celebrating their ‘qualification’ for the 2012-13 tournament.

Spurs qualified for the world’s biggest club competition after finishing fourth in the Barclays Premier League last season.

But Chelsea’s historic win in Munich saw the Blues advance to next year’s competition as England’s fourth representative, relegating Spurs to the second-tier Europa League.

So what are Spurs to do with their Champions League paraphernalia?

Undeterred by their misfortune, they’ve decided to sell their Champions League mugs anyway, at a discounted price.

The mugs are available to purchase for the bargain basement price for £1, down from the original price of £5.

Rather than be embarrassed by the sale, Spurs seem to be having a joke at their own expense.

“Great for use at home or for starting banter at work,” the club’s website says.

So if any Arsenal fans want another way to celebrate the misfortune of their neighbours, or if any Spurs supporters want to ponder what could have been as they sip their morning cuppa, head to Tottenhams website to snap up a bargain.

Buford Balony says: Sucked in Spurs, you suck.
