The demons, of course, are those preventing Tottenham Hotspur, despite an excitingly Shakespearean name, from winning at Old Trafford. At this point, they probably couldn’t beat the kids’ team (F365 points out that the last time Spurs won in Manchester Gary Linekar scored the winning goal). Oh, wait: they didn’t. They lost today 2-0 in the Carling Cup quarter-finals, thanks to Darron Gibson’s brace.
There really isn’t much else to say about this match other than that some fans need to chill about the youngsters. No, they can’t beat Chelsea yet but neither could Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes at age 22, either.
