Happy Wednesday, Spursland! Today we say goodbye, as we have done before, to players we hold dear to our hearts, but can no longer afford to play in our team.
Godspeed to you, Mr. Dawson. It seemed like nobody could ever fill our namesake Ledley's shoes when he hung up his boots, but Daws somehow stepped up and did as good a job of it as anyone could have asked. He was our happy warrior. Never perfect, but always killing himself trying to be, he is what all of us, limited frail creatures should strive to be in everything we do.
Go with our love forever, Michael.
And now the "news"

Seriously Anyone Is Better Than What They Got- The Busby Babe
Yes, MK Dons, by 4. Let the shame sink in, you Red Devils, which is a phrase used in that way sounds kind of like a racial slur.
