Friday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links November 8, 2013

Tottenham Hotspur News and daily links

Ian Walton

Happy Friday, Spursland! I am calling it right now.  Mark down these words, at this time and in this place (an ugly plaid sofa on a farm in Pennsylvania) that  am calling it now.  Lamela is about to go big.  How big?  Who is Gareth bale I forgot everything he has ever done .  That's how big.  Book it Dano.

And now the "news"

Defoe Breaks Scoring Record-Guardian

Bow down to him.  He will henceforth be known as The Game.

Holtby Feels Settled At Spurs-Sky Sports

Your bet your ass he feels settled.  Just look at any video from Tottenham's Youtube channel with him in it.  The level of happiness he takes from everything is insane.  His smile is such that it could bring joy to Ebeneezer Scrooge without having to go through all that BS with the ghosts.He gets visited by the Marley brothers, smash cut to a picture of Holtby's smiling mug, smash cut to him tossing the money to the beggar boy who I guess automatically becomes his servant (social rules in Victorian London were weird) to go buy the goose.

Hi Haters, It's Me Neymar-SB Nation Soccer

Who is a bigger troll, Neymar for just dribbling around 2 extra players he didn't need to in that GIF, or Captain Phillips in literally every interaction he has with the pirates in that movie.  I think Sleeping Chicken might actually be Captain Phillips.

The bigger Picture Still Doesn't Favor Arsenal-SB Nation Soccer

He is back dear readers.  Have you missed our bestest and closest friend?  I thought you might.  But here he is back in all of his wrongness.  How is he wrong this time.  Well first he confuse the turning points in both theaters of the second world war with the point at which Resistance is futile.  subtle historical thing after all.  Oh gee fellas we suffered one major loss better pack it up and go home like the Union did after Bull Run.  But you guys know that because you clicked the link and read this dribble.  Seriously how bad must it be when I am on Arsenal's side.  Also he put a typo in his link to The Short Fuse.  I mean really sir.

Timbers Army Camps Out For Tickets-SB Nation Soccer

I often times in recent months have grown depressed and saddened as I looked at my surroundings.  Nation in decline, political gridlock, and on top of that I have to deal with being surrounded by Philadelphia sports fans.  And I have wondered where should I go, clearly no place in America left hope for a great life with great people anymore.  Perhaps Japan or China would be the place for a new start.  But the more I think about it, the more I am exposed to the happenings there, the more I think that maybe in the pacific northwest is the place to be.  You can see simply from this story, that those guys get what life is all about.
