Musical theatre lover gets abuse for Tottenham loss

3:35 pm on 16 December 2013

A musical theatre lover who shares the same initials as under-fire Tottenham manger Andre Villas-Boas is tweeting song lyrics back to irate football fans who deluge her with abuse.

Ashley Van Buren from New York, who has the same initials as the Tottenham manager has been receiving a stream of abuse from fans of the London club in the wake of their 5-nil loss to Liverpool.

But rather than get upset, she got even saying if people sent her a death threat she'd send them lyrics from musicals.

Her most cutting riposte was to an Arsenal fan, where she referenced the song that has become Liverpool's anthem, You'll Never Walk Alone, a show tune from the 1945 Rogers and Hammerstein musical 'Carousel'.
