Friday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links For July 6, 2012

I am so close to Spain I can taste the pealla
I am so close to Spain I can taste the pealla

Happy Friday, Spursland! A feeling of dread has come over me this day. It is a feeling that all Spurs fans know signals a level of pain that is borderline apocalyptic. That feeling is, of course, that the club has turned the corner and taken the next step up the ladder to football greatness. Anyone who has followed the club for more than 18 months knows that this feeling means that only hell can follow this sensation.

We have the new manager, we have signed a young player chock full of potential and the young promising players we already have are resigning. These are all great things that experience has taught us can only lead to a crap storm in the future, full on precipitation in the form of crap.

But I am sure that his time it is more muscle memory than anything else. PEACE IN OUR TIME!!!

Is Nesta that hard up for cash that he would accept just any contract that someone was offering? Does he know you can just go to China or Qatar and make five times that? Does he know how abysmally bad Montreal are? I feel like I am taking crazy pills, but I KNOW that Nesta is.
