Proof That Spurs Have The Slowest Stewards In Football

Pitch invaders are normally dealt with by burly stewards before they've run ten yards onto the pitch, but not at White Hart Lane.

During Tottenham's Europa League match with Partizan Belgrade, a plucky spectator thought he'd liven up proceedings by having a jog across the pitch. Despite being a portly fellow who wasn't exactly setting a pace to make Linford Christie blush, Tottenham's stewards just couldn't get near him.

As if this wasn't bad enough, another two cheeky chaps tried the same trick, prompting the referee to take the players off the pitch on the 40 minutes mark.
