Happy Friday Spursland! Look, I know i forgot to include the holiday song yesterday and I had been saving one just for the day of the Dublin trip too. Not that you don't already know what's coming.
And now the "news"
That's not what you said the other day. Those shifty Croatians!
First he very politely told the truth about the officiating in Stoke. That lead to an official warning from
overbearing grandparents The FA. Now he has landed in "hot water" for allegedly making a fist and then pointing the fist at Shamrock supporters (in respone to them chanting about his upcoming trial). In other news, Shamrock supporters are the most easily offended people on the planet.
This is the first I have heard of this link, but getting out of North London is not the worst idea from Verdan's point of view. But if I could send Curluka one message this holiday season it would be this.
What's happening around SB Nation after the jump
I think it is great that the best American player ever is getting more playing time in one of the big leagues. And I like it even more that Ryan Rosenblatt hates it because I am just that kind of asshole. But this two months then back to MLS thing is just BS. Do or do not. There is no half a season option. People who do that just piss people off (cough Roger Clemens, cough cough Brett Favre). It's like Landon is playing the "just the tip" game with Everton. And the just the tip game always sucks for everyone until the moment you decide to just not play that particular game.
This is a team that knows how to thank its supporters.
Good thing it happened during a
meaningful game the Club World Cup.
