Happy Humpday Spursland! Today we cover the continuing trend of the asskissery Spurs have been encountering around the EPL in the last week. I know I am not alone in feeling weird about it so do us a favor other clubs, if you don't have anything mean and contrived to say about us, please keep it to yourself.

UEFA, Clubs Teams Agree To Reduce International Fixtures From 12 To Nine Next Year- SB Nation Soccer

This is great for people like me who feel guilty for not caring enough to watch the meaningless national team games in November that have no bearing on qualifying for any competition. It is also a BIG win for clubs and a big defeat for UEFA in terms of the shifting the balance of power in European football.
