    These things never stay up for long, but the football unlimited front page included the quote ``Seems as if Kasey Keller wasn't the only one taking his eye off the ball at Spurs recently...''
    The story is about a pounds 20 million debt at spurs, and the story doesn't talk about Keller at all. Interesting, though, that hye's at least enough of a presence in the game to merit a cheap shot. Up in the air: Compliment to mentioned, or an insult to be insulted?

    Considering how badly they make fun of Davd Seaman and Emile Heskey, I wouldn't think much of their joke about Keller either way.

    It refers to that horrendous gaffe of his in the game against Leicester. It's just a convenient parallel, with a smidgeon of humour - "cheap shot"?

    life in the big time - I've seen larger sections of media in UK turn on players like Giggs and Heskey for periods of time. Nobody's immune. Well, maybe one player is...........

    A cheap shot would have involved Rogaine.

    Matt Clark was right. The ball rolls between your legs and into the goal, that pretty much warrants being made fun of IMO. I remember when Marcus Hahnneman (spelling) did this at Fulham in one of his only starts. :D

    Exactly. That's the jab I always give when I make fun of France and Zidane.
