Spurs boss, Harry Redknapp was shocked this morning, to find a DVD arriving in the post, and even more shocked when he played said DVD in his Blu-Ray player.
According to reports, the DVD contained an urgent appeal for help from beleaguered former Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.
A Spurs insider, who has seen the DVD, relayed to the press that it contained a message from Gaddafi imploring Harry Redknapp to send immediate assistance, as the Colonel was 'having a spot of bother' with some revolutionaries.
The insider told us:
"Old Gaddafi was well upset when he seen on the goggle box that his hat and his bling had been looted. He was appealing to the Boss to send weapons and fighting men to Libya, to give him a bit of back up like. In his time of trouble. Gaddafi reckons the club owe him one, as he's been an avid supporter for years. Going all the way back to Dave MacKay, Jimmy Greaves, Pat Jennings and Cyril Knowles. He even remembers Martin Chivers and Garth Crooks. He said he used to stand on the Park Lane End, or the Shelf, and he was always up for a bit of naughtiness in support of his beloved Spurs. He seems to think it's payback time."
A man claiming to represent Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, stated that the club's business is football, and not warfare, revolution, rioting, looting, or stealing wigs to order, and that they'd like to keep it that way.
One reporter caught Mr Redknapp on his way to his car, but he wouldn't speak at length about the SOS DVD.
"I ain't 'avin' no truck wiv this load of old pony," Redknapp said. "I'm orf up Brick Lane for a bagel, pie 'n' mash, and some luvverly jellied eels. Nah piss orf fer fack's sake!"
More as we get it.
