Spurs 3: Archway Steel 0. The legal inside story.

There used to be a Sheet Metal Works over there.
.
 The Greg Meyer Column.
.
The admission price was free for spectators with the only problem Season Tickets were not available and the venue itself had limited seats . Pitchside as in courtside berths were particularly restricted. Nevertheless a full house  rolled up and the home supporters were treated to a scintillating result.
.
In a match drawn out over 3 days the early tempo was decidedly slow, boring to all but the purists, but when the referee, one Ian Dove of Aston Villa by his own jocular admission took centre stage on Friday morning it was not pretty for the little team from Paxton Road.
.
Referee Dove, surely wearing shirt number five, given his lifelong association with No 5 Chambers of Birmingham, delivered a football thumping to the Steelers. All three grounds of appeal were dismissed and as to the chance of a replay, he ruled that out completely.
.
 Of course the little family team can ask the FA Court of Appeal, for leave to avoid relegation. Actually that should read relocation. Most legal scribes are suggesting given the completeness of the loss then leave to appeal is highly unlikely.
.
So let's take a quick look at the players who turned out in this ultimately devastating whitewash.
.
The Away Team.
.
Chief playmaker was Christopher John Lockhart- Mummery QC. You might think with a name that long there might be problems from the off. An expensive bit of lettering  on a supporters shirt.
.
 Mind the Chairman for the away lads, Mr. Josif Josif does seem to have deep pockets given the expensive team he has assembled for the big match. Certainly a good sprinkling of home talent given his three brothers and sister all turn out for Archway.
.
The football allegiances of Christopher John have remained hidden. Various Spurs wags have suggested a leaning to West Ham. Surely not. We do know he is a keen fisherman and loves the opera. Blowing Bubbles might not be in his kitbag after all.
.
The Home Team.
.
Again an expensively assembled team of QC’s have turned out to fight the forces of darkness, evil, and sheer greed. Opinions vary as to the latter of course.
.
The cornerstone of the Spurs team is the aptly named Timothy Corner QC. Recognised as pre-eminent in the CPO and planning field. Again his football colours have not been disclosed but for a man fluent in French and at ease in Spanish then the names Hugo and Mauricio leap from the page.
.
  Another major player for the home favourites is a Mauricio of sorts namely James Maurici QC. A very busy man, too busy to follow a football team seriously.
.
The final member of the Spurs starting triumphvirate  is Christopher Katkowski QC. Entrusted specifically by Daniel Levy to captain the Spurs team, Kit Kat as he is known around the legal traps, is a formidable opponent.
.
A quick look a recent Legal League tables shows him to be right up there. The 2012 Planning List of Top Silks had Katkowski filling the number 2 spot. Third before he took up officiating duties was Ian Dove.
 .
Tim Corner was sixth and perhaps somewhat illuminating Christopher Long Name fell in at number 24. As things panned out that old chestnut seems as right as ever. The League table never lies.
.
A great victory for the home team and one celebrated with gusto …
.
At A Kent Pub.
.
Our lawyer thought it had been an all round good week. Even the draw against worthy Italian opponents failed to dampen spirits.
.
However another difficult adversary looms on Sunday. Surely another home team victory will out. If our real Spurs turn up then it will have been a big week for Spurs. Doing the double over the Hammers would top it off nicely.
.
Cheers … my next season shirt has Justice Dove on it … Greg Meyer.      coys.

Our official Charity League Cup Final Song, with all Spurs goals so far this season. Sounds a bit dodgy at first but the pictures are good.
