Tottenham fans are used to getting trolled by the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea supporters but not the Oxford English Dictionary (or the OED as the hipsters refer to it).
Mauricio Pochettino sees his team return to Premier League action away to Sunderland tomorrow afternoon and the Argentine says he hopes his side have learnt lessons from their 3-0 defeat to Liverpool last time out.
In fact, the Lilywhites’ defending that afternoon was so poor they made their way into the OED under the term: ‘lackadaisical’.
The definition for a word meaning lacking in enthusiasm and determination – carelessly and lazy – was described as follows:
“A lackadaisical defence left Spurs adrift in the second half.”
Perhaps tarnishing the whole team with the same ‘lackadaisical’ brush is a bit harsh though.
Couldn’t the ‘OED’ have just swapped the word Spurs for Younes Kaboul?
