Happy Deadline Day Spursland! Welcome to the jungle. No, we aren't spending much time on yesterday. If I did this would be two or three thousand words. Like that one time I wrote fifteen hundred word MMA rant. Let's not have that happen again. And besides, it's deadline day, there is going to be so much content going up here that if you are reading this your probably have a strained tendon from scrolling so far down the front page.

This is the day Daniel Levy owns. Let us rejoice.

And now the "news"

AVB Takes Positives From Derby Defeat-Sky Sports

This is a team of a ton of completely new players all coming from different leagues with very different styles playing together for the first time. Combine that with a large number of young players getting serious starts in serious games and you get a team that just needs to gel and play its self into chemistry. I am not worried.

The History Of The World Transfer Record-BBC

Hmmm looks like a graphic pretty similar to this one of the growth of the world human population. So I guess If you believe in the theories of Thomasus then you would know that humanity and football are about to go extinct independently of each other. Yes I know that doesn't makes sense but that first graph certainly calls for some Malthusian alarmism.

How Will Bale Fit In At Madrid-Telegraph

Who gives a fuck?

What To Expect On Deadline Day From The BPL-SB Nation Soccer

And what can you expect from us here at CFC? Content. Lots of it. So if perhaps you get annoyed by us posting a few say 4 articles in the span of 10 or 15 minutes. Maybe Monday just won't be your day.

VIDEO: Scissor Kicks Are Fun-SB Nation Look It

Yes, yes they are.

Now That Madrid Have Bale, What Do They Do With Them-SB Nation Soccer

A part of me, the part that hates other humans, wants this move to be the thing that fully brings Spain crashing down, financially. A nation with 20% unemployment and barely solvent banks allows a loan to an entity already HUNDREDS of millions of Euros in debt that is in 9 figures. "Seems like good business sense to me" said a coked out Bank of Ashmerica (see what I did there) executive over lunch at Craft New York.

HS Footbaw Coach Fight-SB Nation

I coach high school sports. This is completely unacceptable and it is doing their students a disservice. That said, there is one dude I would pay SO much money to be given one shot at.
