Tuesday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links August 22, 2011

Good morning, Spursland. I hope your significant others gave you a hug after that steaming pile of suck we watched yesterday. I know mine did (although she did not really understand what was going on, sorry Emma Stone). Today we begin the process of getting ready for Hearts again, a process that I am sure will include drug testing Jermain Defoe to see if there is a reasonable explanation for his play yesterday, you know, like ketamine.

And now the "news"

Stadium Process Not Compromised-Sky Sports

Oh god, I cannot believe that this story is still going on. It's West Ham's stadium!  Everyone knows it will be West Ham playing there after the Olympics.

Harry Urges Levy To Offer Modric A New Contract-The Guardian

No new information on what the details of that contract offer could be but, Harry does admit that Luka and Levy  have had a falling out. So that is out in the open now, sort of. However our own Ryan Rosenblatt suggests that it is stupid to believe anything Harry says. So I guess that Levy and Luka are really just best friends who were late returning from a fishing trip.  

I Blame Howard Webb-Dear Mr Levy

So Dear Mr Levy takes a look at the match, and blames someone I have never heard of.

Cavani Is (Almost) Really Good At Football-SB Nation Soccer

Hahahahaha he thought he scored a goal, against Barcelona! You can't look good against Barca, they aren't human. They are like that group of other Norse gods that Thor (Messi for the purposes of this analogy) runs around with. Now this Ice giant (Cavani) thinks he can beat them? I watched Thor today.

Timbers Draw 10,000 Plus To Reserve League Match-SB Nation Soccer

And yet only two fans showed up to the MLS draft this year. Yes I was there, and yes I counted, they were both very nice.

Juan Mata Trolls Arsenal, Spurs-We Ain't Got No History

Trolling is a bit of a strong word. Think the brutal honesty that John Wayne embodied and certain attractive Republicans claim too but don't.
