Pinch, punch, first of the month and all that.

And pinching is something we've been doing a lot of since Saturday.

Did we really come from behind twice at a ground that has caused us so much grief over the past five years?

Dumb Tottenham Fans Abuse Wrong Man As Olympic Cyclist Chris Hoy Receives Twitter Barracking

One of these men is a Premier League referee, the other a gold medal-winning Olympic cyclist can you spot which is which?

In a story rather reminiscent (in a cyber kind of way) of that infamous paediatrician/paedophile mix-up some years back, irate Tottenham fans, angered at the officials' performance in their 2-1 defeat against Stoke on Sunday, have been taking to Twitter in their droves, but directing their (rather justified) ire at cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy, rather than the guilty official, Chris Foy.

What you see here is the latest front cover to adorn Manchester United fanzine Red Issue an image not mocking Fabrice Muamba, his collapse or his plight, but instead chastising the 'grief mongering' that has surrounded it for the past week or so...

It's near the knuckle, controversial, provocative and tasteless (that's the kind of material Red Issue tend to trade in) but there is a valid point to be made about the 'I care most' simpering that can permeate this kind of thing only Red Issue have set about eviscerating that point with a supreme lack of tact.
