During Spurs’ 2-1 defeat of Manchester City last weekend in the Premier League, one of the off-field talking points to emerge from the match was the Tottenham faithful’s heckling of Oasis front-man Liam Gallagher.
The kerfuffle ignited after City’s Valeri Bojinov drew the Mancunians level in the second half. Unable to keep his emotions under wraps, Liam jumped up from seat in a private box and, according to reports, began laughing loudly and sticking two fingers up at the Spurs fans sitting below him.
Not ones to take such banter lightly, the Tottenham crowd turned on Gallagher, who was watching the game with his brother Paul, with chants of “Liam, you’re a c***!” and “You dirty Northern b*****d!”
Later, after Spurs took the lead through a controversial Robbie Keane penalty, the crowd were reported to have sung “Liam, what’s the score?” and “you’re just a sh*t Chas & Dave.”
