Still, if I were in Harry's shoes I would've done exactly the same thing. " Would you, though? Would you really? To think this was the club of Danny Blanchflower, a club synonymous with glory, doing things in style and with a flourish. What is the point of playing football at all, when it's come to this? And we're off! The ref crosses himself ostentatiously, waves to the crowd, then blows his whistle.

A decent opportunity to work the keeper at the very least is squandered. 42 min: Shakhtar string about 20 passes together. Finally they work some space for Jadson in the centre, just outside the box.

Bentley sends a dreadful effort sailing serenely towards Pyatov, who can throw his cap on it. But Rat has broken from the wall too early, and is booked for his trouble. Bentley gets a second chance, and if anything what follows is even worse than the first effort, clanking witlessly into the wall.
Does it symbolize the future of Tottenham's UEFA cup run, or is it a subliminal nod to Arsenal, also headed for the trashcan? " It's an Olivetti Valentine, designed by the late Ettore Sottsass.
