Tuesday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links For February 12, 2013

Tottenham Hotspur daily links

Richard Heathcote

Happy Tuesday, Spursland! After a quick glance at the calendar, our best intern (not you, Steve) here in the Hoddle Of Coffee newsroom brought to my attention that our next game has a bit of a complication. It's a big game against Lyon in the Europa League, you see, but it falls on Valentines Day. Specifically, right around the time that everyone who isn't being forced into depression is sitting down to an overpriced meal. With that in mind, I leave you with this ammunition to use against your significant other should they prove to be unreasonable about this. I mean, we have to have priorities right?

And now the "news"

EPL Clubs Doing Happy Dance After Eriksen Refuses New Ajax Deal- Sky Sports

Okay, it looks like we won't be able to make any of our funny funny jokes about how crappy Man United's midfield is anymore.

Spurs To Fine Adebayor Two Weeks Wages?- Sports Mole

Not the best source, I know, but it isn't something that would be that shocking. Especially since the Adebayor being a douchebag thing isn't exactly a new thing.

FIFA Fines Agent Over Gomes Transfer- Australian Yahoo

Oh, so this is how Dan Levy gets such great deals for players. He bribes people.

So You're Saying There's A Chance- SB Nation Soccer

The general story seems to be they both sort of suck now compared to where they were, lets see what's gonna happen. And if that doesn't sell some tickets I don't know what will.

David Villa Out With Kidney Infection- Barca Blaugranes

It is not a good thing to be David Villa's wee wee right now. Yeah, I called it a wee wee, because in this situation that is all it can hope to be.

Defending The Indefinable- SB Nation

The name is offensive, it should be changed and it makes no difference that it is used by exactly nobody in any way other than referring to the team. Just because mulatto has fallen out of favor with racists doesn't mean I can, or should, start an MLS expansion club and use that as the mascot.
