Monday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links For December 3, 2012

Jan Kruger

Tottenham Hotspur daily links

Happy Monday, Spursland! So it i that time of the year. No, not the time that Spurs are finally going on all cylinders. It's the time of year where I look at the list of people I have to buy gifts for and know what I am getting nobody. Like not "I haven't bought anything". I mean I look at the names on the list and just thing "oh f$%^" over and over again. And as we are all one big happy community, I figure I cannot possibly be alone in this problem so let's crowd source this and give out some gift ideas in the comments section.

And now the "news"
