Spurs Fan Creates Cap Celebrating VAR Offside Decision
Spurs fans really enjoyed VAR when it came to their rescue against Manchester City in the second leg of their Champions League quarter final and now they've decided to commemorate the moment by making hats.
For as good as Spurs have become under Mauricio Pochettino, and they've certainly come along way under the former Southampton manager, the big criticism is still that they are yet to fill their trophy cabinet.
Be it FA Cup, Carabao Cup or anything better the north London team are without a trophy since their League Cup win in 2008.
The only things that Spurs fans have been able to commemorate in those years have been the odd win or two over their rivals in big games and some of those games have ended up as commemorative DVDs, much to the amusement of rival fans.
Last Wednesday Pochettino's side took a huge step towards an unexpected potential Champions League success by beating Manchester City in the quarter finals.
They lost the second leg but went through on away goals but their win was in danger in the last minutes of the game as Raheem Sterling looked to have won it for City.
Instead the goal was disallowed by VAR for offside and now there's merchandise to celebrate the most recent famous victory:

I ain't city's biggest fan but this is weird. You ain't even on their level and only scraped through on the away goal. Win the CL then by all means brag- Legend Eski ( Matt ) (@LegendEskimoBoy) April 21, 2019
Spurs win did end City's chances of winning a famous quadruple and their first Champions League but they'll have to settle for the chance to win a domestic treble instead.
The Londoners are still fighting to finish in the top four come the end of the season but with a semi final against Ajax and potentially a final with Barcelona or Liverpool to come they can start at least dreaming about being European champions.
Maybe one day they'll be a trophy to put alongside the DVDs and hats.
