The Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News and Links for Friday, October 2

Wheeeeee! It's Friday!

Happy Friday, Spurs fans! I wasn't able to watch the Monaco match yesterday due to work (though I listened via radio stream) and will probably get caught up on it this weekend, but it sounds as though it was a little disappointing, considering the strength of the side we put out. But that all goes by the wayside if we can grab a win in Wales this weekend. With the international break looming, Spurs have a chance to rest a little (that is, those who aren't called up to their national teams) and gear up for what could be a Brendan Rodgers managerial tenure-defining matchup against Liverpool. Or the first match against Jurgen Klopp wearing red. But let's not think about that.

And now, the "news:"

MK Dons boss misses Dele Alli | Milton Keynes Citizen

Yep, I bet you do. But instead of tearing up League 1/the Championship, Alli-cat is tearing up the Premier League instead. Don't worry, he'll come back in 2017 when we're ground-sharing at stadium:MK. #againstmodernfootball

Roy Hodgson says he's watched Dele Alli for two years | Citiblog Milton Keynes

Uh huh. Sure. That's why Alli didn't even make the preliminary squad for this past summer's U21 EURO Championships, right, Roy? I'm sure that the England setup was aware of him, sure. But history suggests that they didn't think he was going to be this good, or he'd have way more international caps at the U-levels than he does now.

Harry Redknapp: I almost signed Santi Cazorla | Evening Standard

LOLOLOLO! This is why I still love Redknapp. If you put together a team of players he almost signed, you could probably win the Champions League. In 2011.

Sunday defines Rodgers' and Liverpool's future | SB Nation Soccer

I'm torn about this. Rodgers getting canned would be so #banter worthy, and it would be schadenfreude of the largest order. On the other hand, Rodgers seems to be actively making Liverpool bad, and that's good for Spurs. And also, I really don't want to see Klopp at Anfield.
