Happy Monday, Spursland! It's been a rough few weeks, hasn't it? Very up and down emotionally. Would it shock you to learn we are 4-1-1 in our last six? It shocked me.
And now the "news"
Sherwood Says Picking Him Is A Gamble- BBC
Gambling usually doesn't pay off. Like that time we gambled? We put all our chips on a slightly tarnished up and coming hotshot out of Portugal?
AVB Hints His Next Job Won't Be In England- Guardian

Real Madrid Set For January Raid For Paulinho?- Telegraph
Fuck this shit, man. I've had enough. Somebody find me a wet stone because I gotta sharpen my knives. I got first watch.

Anelka In Hot Water Over Celebration with Anti-Semetic Undertones- SB Nation
SB Nation, parent company Vox Media, Cartilage Free Captain, Kevin McCauley and my Jewish girlfriend in no way condone anti-semitism in any form.
Now that that is out of the way, my personal opinion entirely separate from those named above is that this is something a comedian started and no matter how cringe-inducing to some, nobody should be able to tell anyone else what is funny. That said, Anelka is a dummy for doing this, but it's very, very, have I mentioned VERY, likely that he meant no offense. Let us move on with our lives.
