A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links December 1, 2015

Terrible taste Tuesday ushers in December.

Happy Tuesday, Spursland!

There isn't much to complain about with Spurs these days (not that I'm assuming this run is permanent) so I don't feel inclined to make the thematic content about the current squad. Instead I'd like to hear your thoughts on your most favorite "terrible" win. A terrible win counts as the team playing poorly or in an ugly fashion, yet still winning.

My favorite terrible win comes from a few years back when we were losing to Wolves and for some reason had to bring on Alan Hutton. That crazy Scot won a penalty and, against all odds, scored the third goal to kill the game with Roman Pavlyuchenko securing the win in between Hutton's goals.

If you are a newer fan than this, or had repressed the match in an act of self preservation, here is how it went down that fateful September 18, 2010.

I look forward to hearing your favorite terrible wins.

And now for the "news":

If you'll excuse me, I'm just going to imagine the lad in question comes from a working class town, likes radios, goes by his last name exclusively, and has a girlfriend named Marie-Laure.

Andros could go play for Newcastle, but that actually may be a step down from our U21 side at this point.

He also could go to the moon, Comicon, and Arby's. More at 11, Bob.

I have a bit of a soft spot for this academy product as he just keeps plugging along no matter where he is loaned.
