Thursday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links June 4, 2014

Today in the Hoddle: some important questions.

Shaun Botterill

Happy Thursday Spursland! This is the calm before the storm my lovelies. The time when there is no real movement, nothing really "happening". The preparations are made and we can only wait for the eminent event to finally happen. Are you prepared?  Have you scheduled the appropriate days off of work? Do you have your shopping prep lists in order? Have you reserved the keg? And by the way did you hear that THERE MIGHT BE AN EIGHTH BOOK IN SONG OF ICE AND FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!.

And now the "news"
