Happy Friday Spursland! I hope everyone enjoyed or at least didn't hate our little departure from the norm in the Hoddle Of Coffee yesterday. if you did hate it, then fear not, today we return to our regular format of depressing Spurs news and the like.
And now the "news"
Well it is nice to see that Woody is making himself useful after about half a decade. Maybe a little impolitic to help steal one of the few strikers the team that kept your career alive for three years, but its nice to see people accomplish things.
January cannot come soon enough.
While this article isn't exactly New York Times material, it does examine something that I am exceptionally interested in, the relationship between chatter box McGee, Harry Redknapp and Daniel "the Cerebral Assassin" Levy. While most websites of quality (such as this one) have held off on giving full coverage to this topic due to a serious lack of hard data, or good sources, it really has become apparent that there is something unusual about the relationship between these two. I want to know more, and for once I don't care if it from one of the rags.
7-1, I can't figure out if our academy is just that good or if Inter were just playing 9 year-xolds. Alex Pritchard was the star of the match both scoring and creating. I don't think I have ever heard of Pritchard, But I am now going to be keeping an eye out for him. We also had a goal from our favorite player with an unpronounceable last name, Souleymane Coulibaly.
Whats happening around SB Nation after the jump
I hate seeing athletes not go out on top, or at least on a positive note and while his career is not over, the end cannot be far off. Filippo was the man of the match in the very first Champions league final I ever watched and I, who constantly turn my nose up at Italian soccer, still remember his play in that game as truly outstanding. This is the end of an era. He has been a pro for 20 years and with Milan for the last 10. Filippo Inzaghi we salute you.
While I do not believe that Sir Alex's sympathy is necessarily the metric that the author Ethan Dean-Richards does, I do think that Arsenal have show a marked decline over the last few years. I really do think that Arsene's days are numbered in North London. Good.
I'm not sure who is spewing more BS semantics, this article, or mid 90s Bill Clinton.
