Tottenham’s win against Cyprus minnows may be all down to a cheeky ball boy! (watch it on video)

By 1970’s Gooner

So the 6-1 win that Spurs managed against the minnows of Cyprus, Anorthosis Famagusta, in the first round first leg tie at White Hart Lane last Thursday was not all down to good play.

Or even the weaknesses inherent in a team that has a budget which is about one hundredth that of Spurs.

A lot of the inept display by one of the Cypriot’s sides players was down to the cheekiness of a Spurs ball boy who decided his team needed a little bit of help!

He returned the ball to Kostas Loumboutis for a throw but not, as you would imagine, to his hands. He rather forcefully aimed it at the ex Twente player’s privates forcing him to wince from the pain inflicted.

Loumboutis gave him a very glaring look but decided to continue with the throw that was awarded to his team.

The crowd gave the boy, who was in the corner of The Shelf and the Park Lane, a rousing reception.

Last night’s performance means that Arsenal will win trophies this year
