Happy Wednesday Spursland! It is miserable and cold in London, but it is even more miserable and cold in the secret location that I have stationed the bunker that I write from. Winter! Got to love it! Bring on the yetis and Cheltenham Town, Defoe will slay them all!
And now the "news"
To train. False alarm. It is just to train during the MLS offseason, but admit it part of you panicked and part of you celebrated when you read it.
Ok guys, it's over. It was nice while it lasted, but we are finally getting to those speed bumps that come every season. Lennon out, Parker out, Parker's cover out, our center back with experience AND working knees is out. Unless we buy in the next few weeks our chances at challenging for the title are over. We can still make top four, but mostly because Arsenal are kinda crap, Liverpool are also kinda crap and Chelsea are pretty good, but not amazing. The point is we still rule, but only kinda.
The young lad has been keeping a lot of clean sheets while on loan at Celtic so you know he is at least as good as a german shepherd.
What's happening around SB Nation after the jump
This is your MUST read article f the day. It is a very interesting look at how we contextualize peoples actions on the pitch. it deals with the Suarez situation as well as Frank Lampard's recent bad challenge. I am not kidding, read this thing.
Oh look another big club is set to buy another teenage super stud. Hey, Dan Levy, how is that Leandro deal coming along? (buries head in hands and cries).
While the comments are not on the scale of Kevin's infamous (to the staff writers at least) Hearts preview, I found some of the comments to be kind of interesting in that it is pretty clear that a lot of them know he is right, but are kind of grasping at straws trying to convince themselves that their team is still fine. Much like Spurs fans had been going for many many years before we finished 4th a few years ago. So you see, there is more that unites us than divides us.
