Happy Thursday everyone. Tomorrow is Friday which means it's almost Saturday, and any other time of the year that would be awesome because that means football. But its summer so all it means is that today is another Thursday with nothing good possible to happen. So stock up on the beer (I'd recommend Yuengling, for English readers or those on the west coast, sorry it's not available for you, more for me) and tick off another day on the calendar until opening day.
Spurs Offer 8 Million For French Tween-Sky Sports
Well, he isn't exactly a tween, but he is certainly young at 16. Earlier today Kevin McCauley reported that rumors of offer about to be made were circulating in the gossip rags. But now that Sky is reporting it I think we can safely say that an offer was made. And this excites me. This is like signing Wickham only even more awesome because if he signs, Spurs can control how he develops. Keep him from being so French.
