Happy Pre-Friday Spursland! Good lord, is it the weekend yet? All these positive feelings toward the team's current direction has me unnaturally cheery and optimistic. Let me save you some time, you don't even need to wait for the staff predictions. I'm calling it now, 7-0 win. Gomes with three assists.
And now the "news"
Thank God! I'll be the first to admit that when it was first announced that Spurs had signed him, I hated him, and the move. He was a Gunner, and he was old, two things I never like to see. But given that strange start to our relationship, I challenge any of you to be a bigger Gallas fanboy than I am these days. Gallas is like that older step brother you never wanted when he moved in, until you realized you couldn't live without him.
Our favorite sister site's new podcast is out. They discuss the domination of Liverpool and "docking" (if you don't know what that is do yourself a favor, don't google it). So there you go, two totally relatable topics for you, I can't believe I didn't think of this idea first. Maybe wheeler dealer radio can step it up next episode and discuss the Stoke match and using the grinder app.
Gareth Bale? 75 million? Where are my keys? I'll drive him to the mother f-ing airport myself and I live in Pennsylvania! 75 million for a player that hasn't done a thing except make my girlfriend wonder what she is doing with a pig like me and not someone with abs since Milan in 2010. And then 45 million for Luka from Chelsea, same deal pack your bags my small Slavic friend, it's been nice knowing you, enjoy the borscht.
What's happening around SB Nation after the jump
I love dead ball goals. If I had my way all goals would be dead ball goals.
It took me a good 4 minuts between writing the headline and beginging the description for this, I couldn't control my school girl giggles. Ronaldo, Kaka, Benzema, Ozil, Xabi Alonso, Altintop, Higuain...can't score goals LOLOLOLOLOLZZZZZ. I laughed more at just the concept of this title than I did from all of the Roman Pavyulchenko Memes yesterday, and then again today when Bryan Ashlock tweeted it again because without meme's and GIF's life has no meaning for him.
Somewhere around 6 weeks ago I seemed to be really in to swearing up and down that I would finally breakdown and watch the Mexican league this year. Well it's late September and of course I haven't seen a single game. But it's ok because FMF State Of Mind has compiled all the good stuff that I need to know about last weeks round of games. Thank you internets!
