Happy Tuesday, Spursland! So Rafa Benitez is a thing and I am told that I am supposed to hate this by the decision makers of the world (Kevin and Ryan, if you thought I meant the Bulderburg group you are an idiot). I don't really have any opinion on this yet as I don't really pay attention to things that don't directly affect me and thus I haven't watched a Rafa team play in years. It's all about me after all. I American to my core.
And now the "news"
