It's Spursday Spursland! Time to brave that cold wet Russian weather and take some points back to the Lane. A little word of advice to all you Rubin players (who all read the Hoddle religiously), Joe Jordan is in charge today, and he doesn't take any guff. So, if you are thinking of doing some cheeky celebration around his technical area I'd think twice. Please see Gattuso, Gennaro for evidence.
