Happy Spursday Spursland! It is go time boys and girls big time (sort of) cup football is here and it is about to be all glory glory up in here. Oh the drama! Will Tom Carroll get his shot? Will Steven Caulker prove to us that he still exists on this plane of being? How many goals will Gareth Bale score after totally demolishing whoever is unlucky enough to be slotted in as right back? Find out on today's episode of "Tottenham Are Clearly Better Than You".

And now the "news"

Defoe Hails Current Squad-Sky Sports

So JD thinks that this is the best Spurs squad he has played with. You know what that means. Hey Croatians, are you just gonna sit there and take that? He came at your neck (whatever that means) bro! Defoe was all like get on your knees and lick me in the naughty place Croatians because you are not good at kicking balls!

Gareth Bale: From Spurs Jinx To World Class-BBC

This is a great read. It is completely flabbergasting to think now that Bale was once the ultimate jinx. 24 appearances without a win, in a row. I will fully admit during this time period that I, feeble football mind that I am, said some incredibly mean things about him. I think at one point It might have been Kevin said something that let me know what a moron I was. I was wrong, and Bale is awesome.

Intent does not matter, it is your responsibility to be in control of your body and be aware of your surroundings. Definitely a card, a borderline but not egregious red card. Play fair and play safe kids.

Sturridge Ready For Tottenham-Liverpool Offside

You see, you say that now, but I don't it will prove true. It doesn't matter when if you are ready, if you play on Liverpool and your name is Reina, Suarez, or Gerrard then you don't really figure in that much to the result.

Bould vs. Wenger: Who's The Mole-The Short Fuse

I find it shocking that people would say that Wenger is a thin-skinned prima dona who has to make it all about himself, shocked i tell you.
