It's Thursday boys and girls! Do you know what that means? It's less than ten days until Everton. Have you stocked up on beer? Have you made sure the kegerator is fully cleaned and all the maintenence is done for this new season? Seriously, you haven't? Well get on that soldier. Just like Spurs need Sandro healthy to have a good season, you need to make sure all your tools of fandom are ready for the season.

And now the "news"

Independent Investigation Clears West Ham's Path To Olympic Stadium-Daily Mail

Of course this news has nothing to do with the work begun today on Spurs owned land on the Northumberland Development Project site. In an unrelated story, my small knowledge of medieval English geography tells me that London is not at all in the area known as Northumberland. Can someone explain the name to me please?  

Casemiro To Snub Spurs For Inter-Give Me Football

So a player I have never heard of but was apparently our big signing goal this off season has snubbed us.  Excuse me if I disagree about everything in this article.

Joey Barton And A Ten Foot Pole-The Short Fuse

Today's episode of Wheeler Dealer Radio and this article combined (I am Captain Planet?) have completely turned me around on Joey Barton. Outspoken is good. Being pissed off with silly mistakes is good. So let's beat Arsenal to his signature and call this transfer window a wash shall we?

Pato Not Interested In Chelsea Move-We Ain't Got No History

Good move by Duckboy there. I don't think he would fare well in England. On top of that, I am happy anytime someone tells Roman Abramovich no.
