Happy Monday, Spursland! Perhaps mildly overshadowed yesterday by our joy in Defoe's hat trick and that Dempsey "did something", we may have failed to praise Hugo Lloris for his performance. That my friends, was a deal. He was a wall that could only be beaten by the black magic that Andy Carroll whips out once a season so that the newspapers keep hyping him. The only way it could have been better is if he stopped a penalty while doing a headspin.
And now the "news"
If you didn't hear them where you were watching the game you aren't alone, I didn't hear them either. Apparently more that a few West Ham fans decided to go all Lazio at the game yesterday. Why, you may ask? Well, I am forced to assume that they are just as emasculated and empty inside as all other racists in the world. We won't print what was said here, but if you want specifics, the Telegraph has them.
Take note, Serbia. This is how the countries that want to run things around this world act when an international incident occurs.

Circle January 14th on your calendars as our first game against Harry. The showdown between the Dashing One and the Jowelled One. Oh, the drama! I can taste the English tabloid media mud slinging from here.
You know you are hated if one of the steps is to quit. Like wow.
Meanwhile, everyone who isn't from Long Island just asked, "Fireman who?"
He was THE man.
I liked to think of Hatton as boxing's Robbie Keane. I know that makes no sense, but that's how I like to think of him so deal with it.
