Happy Monday, Spursland! At what point do England move into full-on Chicago Cubs territory? When do we cross the line where isn't even funny to make fun of them because they haven't won in so long and it just becomes lame. Maybe even border line mean? I think the next World Cup is the dividing line, and I mean they have to win it. If they don't then it will be an even 50 years without a major title for a nation that by all rights really should be a world powerhouse (Editor's note: No it shouldn't). I think that is pretty reasonable. It also gives me two more years of making jokes about how crap England is. "They played James Milner on the wing!"

This, right here, this is the point where I just start throwing things into the air and screaming "I DON"T KNOW WHAT'S REAL ANYMORE". You know why? Because the strength of the "will they, won't they?" this managerial saga is such that it is causing my mind to cave in. Just pull the trigger. We have at least two top quality candidates who just about everyone likes in AVB and Martinez. Just pull the trigger. I want process to work like Prez's trigger pull. It takes zero time to fire.

I just can't quit you, Harry. Especially since the instant I imagined Harry hanging out in the United Arab Emirates I pictured him hanging out with that evil, rapist, sex slave owning sheik, but not exactly realizing the company he is keeping. "What do you mean he bought Liam Neeson's daughter from a band of Albanian sex traffickers"?
