Happy Monday Spursland! This week the Europa League returns, and presumably so does Jake Livermore and the universal man crush himself, Harry Kane. It certainly makes senese to play the kiddies Thursday since we have ARSENAL AT HOME on Sunday! Gee, do you think this is a big week?
And now the "news"
Harry Would Like To Make Adebayor A Permenant Spur, Is Captain Obvious-Sky Sports
Harry Made Hutton Train With The Kids-Sky Sports
WHAAAAATTTTTT!!!!! I mean I know nobody, and I mean nobody who either writes for, comments for, or has ever glanced at this sight rates Hutton. But holy come on #areyouseriousbro! That is the biggest insult I think any manager could heap onto a player, if it is true. We have no evidence that Harry is kind of dick, and by no evidence I mean only if you don't click that link.
Would Bale Be Better Playing Center Mid?-Triffic Tottenham
Blew your mind a little bit there didn't it. While I disagree that Bale would be better served to play a more central role, this article does lay out a compelling case. My main sticking point is the idea that if moved to the center Bale would have more room to be Weezusy, and couldn't be marked out of the game like he could be on the sidelines. And while that is sometimes true I don't think it is always the case. The center of the pitch, especially the way Spurs play with basically three men in the center if you count Rafa is really congested. Our Welsh dreamboat need space, an open ponderosa to run into, that happens much more often on the wings

FIFA Bans Iraq From Hosting World Cup Qualifying Matches Over Safety Concerns-SB Nation Soccer
For once safety concerns don't have to do with hooligans or a crumbling RFK Stadium-like venue. Allowing more people than the venue holds and losing power during a match are all bad things but certainly not unheard of in the world of non first world international soccer. Things like this would appear to be the norm in many South American teams' venues. It just seems a bit harsh when compared to what shenanigans are regularly tolerated in world football to ban a national federation from planing home matches all together.
