Monday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links For June 9, 2014

Tottenham Hotspur news and links, with some OH MY GOD.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday, Spursland! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! It's here, it's here, it's HERE. If you don't have a sports boner (yes, ladies have sports boners too) for this week then you are probably as big an uninformed asshole as Michael Wilbon.

With every football reporter on earth in Brazil, expect it to be cool on the Spurs news front for awhile, with the exception being when our boys do things in Brazil for their national sides. I fully expect to see stories about Bentaleb being sold for £25 million within the next two weeks.  Book it, Dan-o.

And now the "news"

FIFA Sponsors Concerned About Qatar Wold Cup Bribery Investigation, May Take Human Rights Reports Into Consideration In The Future- SB Nation Soccer

What moral fucking leadership that is. May take human rights abuses into consideration ... in the future. Fuck you. I have this joke in my act about people we look at as the moral compass of the country through the lens of history. For example, in his diary sometime in his early 30's Washington wrote something that boils down to, "no man has the right to own other men" and then he continued owning massive numbers of slaves for decades until he died. My point is that you either walk the walk or you issue a press release limply indicating your concern. Eat shit.
