A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links December 25, 2015

Merry Friday

Happy Christmas, Spursland!

I'll leave it at that because I assume there are a fair number of you who don't celebrate the holiday; and, to be frank, you all are probably healthier for it. There are a million ways to eat too much, but this holiday I ate too many cookies. Way too many. Which leads to the question: what is your favorite cookie, and what cookies do you all think our players like?

My absolute favorite are cucidati which are a type of fig cookie. I eat them like M&M's and am literally powerless in their presence. I wish I could tie this meaningfully back to Tottenham, but it's the calm before the fixture storm which will leave us with more than enough football to discuss. I'm comfortable with my pro-cookie focus in this Hoddle.

Again, don't forget to weigh in with your cookie takes below.

And now for the "news":

Free agent list has some high profile names including Ade| Daily Express

They call him a flop which...isn't true. Ade had a 17 goal, 11 assist campaign in a Spurs shirt and no matter how it has ended that can't be explained away.

Ex-manager thinks Dele ain't a dime| The Sport Review

No need to be upset, he likes him just fine, only as a different type of midfielder than he has been the last few matches.

Caretaker managers are pretty good| SB Nation Soccer

Andi Thomas wrote it so I want to believe it, but I wonder if he has ever heard of Tim Sherwood?
