Happy Monday, Spursland! Okay, okay I lied. It isn't very happy, but screw it. Tradition is tradition and we are going to have a happy Monday. Or ELSE!
And now the "news"
AVB Heaps Praise On Chelsea- BBC
You two bit, no good Judas, Benedict Arnold traitor! I bet you wish you could go back there, don't you? Wish you would be back hanging out with that creepy Russian, maybe be an assistant to Southern Europe's answer to Daniel Levy's creepy head? I thought we had something, AndreI
The Guardian Calls Out UEFA On Racism- The Guardian
It is seldom politic to call a spade a spade, but we are not talking about gardening equipment here. We are talking about racist intimidation and harassment. It is always okay to call that exactly what it is -- unacceptable.
Gareth Bale And Lady Partner Give Birth To Undoubtedly Beautiful Child- Daily Mail
The Daily Mail has long been banned from the Hoddle Of Coffee due to the odor of rotten eggs and old Thai food that follows each and everything that it produces; however we are inclined to make a one time only exception for this.

Congratulations, you Welsh devil, you.
If Your Club Isn't Playing Well, Shoot At Them With Paintballs- SB Nation Soccer
I think it is safe to say that we can skip over the entire paintball thing and move onto the really really stupid ass, ignorant part of this story. The dropping of leaflets threatening foreign players. Racism, blaming of foreigners for all of societies ills is not a new thing for Europe, nor did it end with the eradication of the fascist regimes. See, Greece.
Can't we all just agree that the logic that "things aren't going well, and gee wiz, that group of people over there sure didn't used to be here so there their existence around me is the reason my life sucks", logic is flawed? I mean, you don't even need to expend the energy to think about it, just look around the world. You just might find a country that is kind of kicking the rest of the world's ass (and making the very bestest choices in friends right, British people?) in everything from economic output, to military power, to
space exploration, to reality TV and you will find a nation that literally lets people in from everywhere. It has worked out really really well for us. Maybe Russia should give it a shot.
Arsenal Beat The Crap Out Of Spurs In The Race To Suck The Most This Weekend- The Short Fuse
Oh look at you, you shinny little lining of silver you.
A Look Back At The NWO- Cage Side Seats
I said something nice to Bryan Ashlock today so I am contractually obligated to put something in the Hoddle that he will absolutely hate. Cheers!
