Tottenham are selling half-and-half mugs ahead of the Champions League final vs Liverpool


Whatever the result on June 1, the fact that Tottenham Hotspur reached a Champions League final will never be forgotten. 

On five separate occasions throughout their European campaign, Spurs have been less than 10 minutes away from going out of the competition. 

Now, courtesy of Lucas Moura's sheer tenacity and brilliance in Amsterdam, they're off to Madrid to play Liverpool. 

While the Reds head to the Spanish capital in search of their six Champions League trophy, Spurs are plotting to upset the odds once again and land their first silverware under Mauricio Pochettino. 

Never before have the club reached a European Cup final, their last UEFA Cup triumph coming in 1984.

It's all the more impressive not least because of the constraints within which Pochettino has had to work. 

Fittingly, Moura was the last player to sign for Spurs all the way back in January 2018.

And only two of the Lilywhites' home European games this season have been at their own stadium, the earlier stages taking place at Wembley.

Spurs' journey is undoubtedly cause for huge celebration and it's hard to blame the club for cashing in as much as possible by releasing special merchandise for the occasion. 

However, in addition to a 'Madrid 19' t-shirt, some of it is going to be a little too 'modern football' for some. 

The half-and-half scarves were inevitable, but the north Londoners have also printed mugs in the same vein - yes, that's right, with their own colours on the one side, and Liverpool's on the other, all for £8:

You get the feeling a few of these might get smashed if it's Jurgen Klopp's side who emerge victorious. 

There will be fans out there who are simply so overjoyed that they'll want to lap up every single memento possible. 

Yet for all the mutual respect that's rightly being shared ahead of the showpiece, there will be no love lost on the night as Spurs look to upset one of Europe's most decorated clubs and make it the biggest night in their 137-year history. 

Who's winning the CL - Tottenham or Liverpool? Have your say in the comments.
