Happy Monday, Spursland!
This is a little bit of a true manic Monday for me as I'm taking part in the time honored tradition of holiday travel. When you're reading this, I may very well be 30,000 feet in the air, eating a bag of peanuts, definitely not worried about the airline messing up my luggage.
Then I have 35 minutes to connect to my next flight so I don't miss it. No big deal.
So in honor of missing things (which I hope not to do) today we pay homage to Virgil van Dijk's epic swing and miss on Harry Kane's brilliant goal on Saturday with a series of gifs. You'll make a hero's clearance or get a straight red card with a similar challenge one of these days, Virgil, keep swinging for those fences.
And now for the "news":

He will only break your heart. Or be the personification of existentialism. Definitely one of those two, though.
