Alan Partridge Pundit: “Tottenham Hotspur would be my flutter of choice”
Twitter funny man and digital DJ @partridgepundit gives his views on Tottenham Hotspur becoming betting favourites in this season’s Premier League title race.
In a season that’s becoming less predictable than an episode of Banged Up Abroad (seriously, some of the plonkers you’d find on that satellite-subscription-only program will make your boots tingle), things got even more weird last night as a sports team called Tottenham Hotspur from that little place they call ‘the lane’ became favourites to win the English Premiership.
Harry Kane, aka Citizen kane, aka the bloke who you’d probably find working at the back of Londis in the fruit & veg aisle (disclaimer: I’m more of a budgens man myself), has been living up to the billing of his last name ‘Kane’ by administering his own form of capital punishment this season (not literally of course, he’d be in prison).
Now, I Alan Partridge have never been one to get into bed with betting companies or companies that condone that sort of care-free behaviour, (my lost foray into the murky world of gambling back in 1987 ended when I lost half of my PA Lynn’s dead mother’s inheritance on a single game of pontoon) but I have to say if I were a betting man (which I’m not, I hasten to add to my darling ex-wife Carol) the mighty Lillywhites would be my ‘cheeky flutter’ of choice.
