Harry Redcrapp, cheeky cockney used car dealer and Spurs manager has announced that he is suffering from a nasty case of sour grapes. "I got the most 'orrible sour grapes, mate. And I really hate the Italians because they do not suffer from this. This Italian bloke wanted to borrow my King. But I really spat the dummy. Told 'im to fack off."
Indeed, Redcrapp was greatly angered by Fab Crapellio's attempt to use King. It is possible that Redcrapp is still smarting from failing to land the England job. The FA shied away from the Cockney spiv wheeler dealer style. Also suggestions of financial irregularity didn't help. However, Redcrapp denies any wrong doing. "I ain't no crook. If anyone says I am then watch out coz I'll kill you."
Crapellio hopes to ignore Redcrapp as the Spurs boss is irrelevant. Sour grapes is a particularly nasty football ailment that has blighted the game for years. Losers frequently show symptoms and it usually ends in tears.
The FA have declined to comment.
