Happy Hump day Spursland! Hump day, the grossest name for the worst day of the week. Worse, we have no weekday game this week. What I am trying to say is that if Wednesday were a person I would throw a shoe at them.

And now the "news"

Gerrard Backs Harry For England-Sky Sports

Should Dan Levy just start interviewing candidates for Harry's job now? It seems inevitable that he will be gone very soon to the great black hole that is the England manager job. I think it wouldn't be the dumbest thing in the world, a nice long scout for the perfect person to step into the role rather than a rushed half-assed job looking for anyone available at the last minute.  

David Bentley Is Costing West Ham 90k Per Game-Knees Up Mother Brown

LOLz, good lord West Ham have gotten screwed on this deal. Click the link for the gory details.

Spurs IX Hammers West Ham

The Harry Kane show marches on behind closed doors as the young striker known for looking really awkward in action photographs punched in two goals. Unfortunately, with the team being out of the Carling Cup we will most likely be seeing much less of him in the first team for the time being.

Whats happening around SB Nation after the jump.

As Brek Shea Looks Abroad, It Is Clear That He Is Unlike Any American Before Him-SB Nation Soccer

Our own Ryan Rosenblatt writes a fantastic piece on FC Dallas' star and  Prince Targaryen doppelganger Brek Shea. I highly suggest you give it a read. Let's hope that Brek's eminent departure to Europe goes better than "the last dragon's".

Animals With Soccer Balls Is Adoracute: Fluffy Puppy-SB Nation Soccer

It's like my heart melted.

The Art Of Rationalization-SB Nation Soccer

A great read from Andi Thomas who definitely wins the SB Nation Writers "Most Ridiculous Profile Picture" contest. Is that a fake mustache?

Chelsea Unveil Three Possible Stadium Locations-We Ain't Got No History

I'd like to thank Chelsea for demonstrating to Spurs how to handle a stadium move without looking like a bunch of blithering whinny children. Don't get me wrong, I see the strategy behind what Dan Levy did, hedging his bets on the Olympic Stadium deal and drawing more public money for the Northumberland Development Project, but to the casual observer the team looks like petty fools compared the organized march of Chelsea towards a bigger ground.
