SOMETIMES football really is a funny old game. In 2005 Shamrock Rovers had to be bailed out by their supporters — now they’re playing in Europe against Spurs.
Which means by the unwritten laws of the game every fan in the land will be hoping they give the Premier League side a bloody nose — except Tottenham fans, obviously.
And it’s not completely hopeless. They managed to knock out Partizan Belgrade to qualify for the group stages, although they lost their first game 3-0 against Russians Rubin Kazan.
Still, “Come on you Rovers”, to be sure.
