The worst of the internet's 'Young Boys' gags

The Swiss beat Spurs – but are still on the receiving end of some questionable online wit. If you’re easily offended, don’t look.

Harry Redknapp: Probably not a massive fan of Young Boys.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR could face an ignominious premature exit from the UEFA Champions League after an embarrassing 3-2 defeat against BSC Young Boys of Bern in the first leg of their qualifier last night.

But the biggest talking point online last night wasn’t the football.

Instead, it was  the inevitable gags about the unusual name of Spurs’ opponents – as well as the fact that Young Boys play at the, ahem, Wankdorf stadium.

Here’s our (publishable) pick of how bad it got on Twitter:

On Boards.ie, meanwhile…

  • ntlbell: spurs could put these young boys to bed now
  • baldshin: Wonder if they’ll swap shirts after?
  • Mr.Nice Guy: If you allow Young Boys get on top of you you’re in trouble.
  • Raskolnikov: My favourite commentary moment from the first half from the Sky commentator: ”Can the Young Boys keep it up?”.
  • Nailz: Young Boys are toying with them
  • abouttobebanned: Has Harry Redknapp been watching any videos of young boys?

None of the jokes could come close, however, to Soccernet’s news piece about Young Boys’ new stadium being opened in 2005.

Spurs welcome Young Boys to White Hart Lane for the return leg in a week’s time.
