Apologies for the delay folks, but for some strange reason the PA chose to cling onto the photos from Real Madrid’s 4-0 pounding of Tottenham last night until mid-afternoon…

Aaron Lennon shuffles from the pitch shortly prior to pulling out of the match through illness

Lennon has since reacted angrily to suggestions that his excuse for dropping out was ‘bullshit’, tweeting that he will not allow himself to become a ‘scapegoat’ and claiming that he was originally taken ill on Sunday

    translation help: the second scarf says, “my mother made me pretty, smart, and… a whore.”

    Way to keep it classy, asshole! Sorry your team lost (I am assuming that’s the only reason for such vitriol), but seriously?

    “dc” is from Barcelona, as quite noted in another comments in this website.
    A couple days ago you had here in the site a glance of the bad fans in portuguese football (“Porto’s celebration in Benfica’s stadium” topic), now “dc” brings the usual classless discussions between Madrid and Barça. Welcome to Iberia, folks!
    Now you see why we’re in a shithole down here, people here only care about football and talking nonsense shit at other clubs… as a a friend of mine said: “Portugal can go bankrupt, but not my Benfica/Porto!” (same applied to Spain/Real/Barça I believe, by what I’ve seen…)
