Little Britain Star Matt Lucas Changes Twitter Handle, Trolls Tottenham Fans

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterDecember 29, 2013


When you've got a bit of free time, a life-long love of Arsenal and a verified blue tick on Twitter, the best thing you can do with your time is to change your name and troll Tottenham fans.

At least, that must have been the thinking of comedian Matt Lucas, who changed his name in homage to former Arsenal great Martin Keown for the day (note the spelling of Martin, however).

And then the punchline:

I am going to buy a 3D printer and print out a league trophy for all my Spurs friends who were born after 1961.

He also had time to engage with Bleacher Report UK guest columnist Stan Collymore, this time with the helpfulness of Carol Beer, the "computer says no" lady in Lucas' sketch show Little Britain.

I predict football will be the winner. RT @StanCollymore: Want YOUR predictions for today's games!

Arsenal take on Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday, while Tottenham host Stoke City.
