Happy Friday, Spursland! And thank god we are here. The summer is over. Sure, it's probably blisteringly hot where you are (or cold I know it's winter for the Aussies, but I'll be honest -- I have no idea what that means down there). But let us rejoice for the game we love is back and no longer draped in the cloak of nationalism, jingoism, and ethnocentrism. We are Tottenham, and we are Groot.
And now the "news"

Tony Pulis Leaves Crystal Palace, Because They Don't Like Trying or Something- SB Nation Soccer
Thanks for saving our season, but we won't give you any tools to compete this year. Tony deserves a better job.
Suarez Ban Upheld- Barca Blaugranes
I am almost surprised FIFA didn't knock it down, because in a world were it is obvious that humanity is people with upright walking examples of utter shit, FIFA are the leaders in the clubhouse of the sporting division.
