Happy Spursday, Spursland! Your regular deliverer of the Hoddle, theroosevelts, had to spend the whooooooooooole night with his lady friend last night, so I'm the man for the job today. I'm not finding you a holiday song to put here because I am the Grinch and I despise Christmas music.
Always the voice of optimism ahead of big games.
I didn't even read this, I just picked it for the hilarious headline.
Thanks for the endorsement, Ossie Ardiles!
I just don't even.

Our Sunderland blog does this feature after every single game, and it's excellent.
