Happy Halloween Spursland! Is it just me or were our boys scary good yesterday? Well except for that one time when our defense was frighteningly bad. Sick of bad Halloween shtick? Me too, let's get to the Harry quotes.

Harry Called Taarabt "A Piece Of Fruitcake"-Sky Sports

I need confirmation that Harry Redknapp knows what decade we are in. Does fruitcake mean the same thing in England it does in America? It's like he saw one episode of Mad Men and said to himself "look at al this awesome retro dialogue, we need to bring this stuff back"

Dawson May Need Surgery-BBC

ANIMATED:John Terry Falls On His Face-SB Nation Soccer

Sleeping with a teammates wife, being a possible racist. I'm totally OK with laughing at him.

VIDEO: Saborio With A Big Time Back Heel Of A Goal-SB Nation Soccer

Maybe the goal of the week.

ANIMATED:Rafa Marquez's Amazing Flop-SB Nation Soccer

There have been some bad flops in the world of football in the last three or four months but this one is painfully bad, if only because two players flop and one wasn't even close to being touched by the opposing team. The wrong player flopped!
