Happy Wednesday, Spursland!

Many of you know this, but some of you may not: I love Dele Alli. I've loved him ever since last April when I did a little research and found a ridiculously confident young man with a big game to back it up.

Last night was his coming out party on the international stage so I dedicate this Hoddle to him. The pitter to my patter, the eggs in my batter, and the rungs to my ladder. Dele Alli.

And now for the "news":

The perfect night for the perfect player. Did I mention he is perfect? Do you all want me to link to the article I wrote in April about him again?

Roy Hodgson praises "faultless" Alli| FA Official site

I think you meant "perfect", Roy. Per-fect. Just repeat after me. Per-fect.

Wayne Rooney thinks Dele Alli should continue to start because he is perfect| Daily Mail

I don't care if he never said it. He thought it, and he's correct.

The crowd, English and French, took their cues from Dele last night and were perfect.
