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"

Jesus, why don't you just hop a plane to Manchester and kick him in the balls? It would have hurt less.
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?
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.
