Monday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links For December 10, 2012

Tottenham Hotspur daily links

Stu Forster

Unhappy Monday, Spursland! For years we have seen the kinds of collapses that we saw yesterday. And for years we have explained them with funny little sayings like "because Spurs", But this has gone on for too long. This is beyond dealing with heartbreaking loss by making the best of it and laughing at ourselves like this because late game collapses, while they do happen, have become part of this club's culture.

Now while these kinds of results are nothing new, they have been happening a hell of a lot more this season than in season's past. This is no longer something that I can laugh at. What is the solution? I don't know, but if I had to guess, if we could consistently view tape of training I'd say a lack of mentality. Mentality and character are sometimes born, but 99% of the time it is trained. It is drilled into an athlete. Something needs to changes at the club or no matter what players we bring in or we will never get over the hump into the elite. You must train to break your opponents, not just to beat them. You train to demoralize, not just out point them on the score sheet. That is the difference between greatness and a winning record.

And now the "news"

Thank You Manuel Marquez- Bad Left Hook

I don't like boxing. The sport has become to much about stars, titles mean nothing and everyone fights scared because they are afraid one loss will ruin their careers. This, however, was awesome. Even if, like me, you don't really like boxing, you like watching" big time fights" no matter whether it is MMA or boxing. This was a big fight that set up another big fight. It also put to rest the never-ending story that was "the will they or won't they" saga of Pac Man vs Mayweather. Also, the KO was pure violence.

Benson Henderson Beats The Crap Out Of Nate Diaz, Allegedly With A Toothpick In his Mouth For All 5 Rounds- Bloody Elbow

Now I have watched this video about a dozen times, and I watched the fight (which was awesome, and on it's own merits more awesome than that boxing match that happened later in the night) and I don't see a toothpick. But after the performance and display of incredibly skill Bendo displayed, I am not surprised how people could believe this is true. He was that good.
