Happy Election Day (for Americans), Spursland! I had planned on a big long diatribe about why voting is important, but then I turned on my TV and realized that we have all been just crammed to the bursting point with election crap and you guys don't need to hear another go vote rant. Today is our day of jubilee -- no more political ads or emails! Let us celebrate in style, with the Jackal. Don't talk to Tobey during the Jackal.
And now the "news"
AVB Says Defoe Storming Off After Being Subbed Is Not An Issue- Sky Sports
I think what he meant to say was that it shouldn't be an issue, but it is. Defoereally didn't play well against Wigan and his skill set wasn't exactly what the team really needed at that time period. He should know enough about the game to see that it was the right decision and be mature about it. He was, however, less than mature, and this is an issue. We only have two strikers. What do we do if one of them goes full on Tevez? (Editor's note: We'd play him because Carlos Tevez is good)

So let's talk about it.
