Happy Wednesday, Spursland! Alas, this is (probably) my last day of filling in for Roosevelts on the Hoddle. Don't cry for me, Argentina. For while I depart and will no longer compare Roosevelt's life to various Dustin Hoffman films, I'll just continue to do it in the comments and draw the ire of Uncle Menno. As the old saying goes, "you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here." Well, I mean, I guess I'll be here, but not here. Whatever. Screw it. Go out with a bang I always say. I'll just try to annoy Ashlock as much as possible with this Hoddle by making fun of him at the mention of kids.
And now for your Tottenham news and links...
Levy Should Look at Himself Before Swinging AVB Axe
The writer is big on his alternate history, saying that sending Rose to Sunderland was a bad move at the time because he was a more natural left back than Naughton (which at the time was ludicrous). Worth a read, though.

BREAKING NEWS THAT I'M EDITING IN NOW AT 04:00 AM BECAUSE, JUST, GOD SOMETIMES GOOD COMEDY WRITES ITSELF!
Chelsea Sack Roberto Di Matteo
Wow, just, wow. I mean, what the hell is the point of this? They're third in the table and all they have to do is crush a Norwegian side at home and just expect Shakhtar to continue being awesome. Just, Jesus Christ you guys, what the hell is the thought here? Who the hell is even available right now? Pep won't come back until the summer, Harry Redknapp is available I guess but his preferred tactics don't jive with the current team at Chelsea at all. Chelsea, you are real dumb, you are so dumb.
