Happy match day, Spursland!

With the team on a bit of a roll save our hiccup in Brussels a couple weeks back it would be nice to see a rotated squad tonight even though this match is crucial in terms of progressing to the round of 128 in the Europa League. I know that may not make a lick of sense, but it's at times like these that I like to give some rotation players a shot to see if they can focus and make the manager's selection difficult or fold at the added pressure and make their exclusion automatic.

Additionally, I want Tom Carroll to have an average to good game, Twitter to react accordingly, and Ben Daniels to scream at you all for being wrong. Those are very, very good days imo. I ask for so little.

And now for the "news":

Apparently the only thing Dele Alli can't nutmeg is the void of common sense surrounding the English national team.

This is like getting mad at the man who invented photography because your wife just found the cache of d*** pics you've been sending Svetlana, the down on her luck Russian girl you met on the internet who means nothing to you, you swear.

I really like the idea of this if only because I want to hear Skipjack butcher his name on Wheeler Dealer Radio.

Speaking for Tottenham, Arsene, here is our response: f*** you.
