Happy Thursday, Spursland!

It's been a pretty great year for Spurs, but in order for the drama of the current campaign to hit fever pitch, we must turn the calendar. That doesn't mean we can't look back at our favorite moments, however. I'll keep it short and sweet on this New Year's Eve; listed below are my top three moments of 2015.

1. Tottenham storm back to win the NLD 2-1 behind a Harry Kane brace.

2. We go through to the final of the League Cup behind an extra time goal from Christian Eriksen.

3. Daniel Levy buys Dele Alli from MK Dons in the January transfer window for five million pounds.

I look forward to reading your respective lists.

Be safe tonight everyone; see you in the new year.

And now for the "news":

Dele Alli signaled his arrival on the international stage| The Telegraph

What losers weren't on his train by that point? I wrote an article professing my love in April for the love of everything holy. Have I ever mentioned that?? Anyway, hurrah for Dele Alli!

Jamie Redknapp compares Dele Alli to Steven Gerrard| London Evening Standard

He's talking about pre-2009-10 Stevie G, who was a dynamo. They are both tough guys, too. Stevie with DJs who don't like Phil Collins, a noted Spurs fan, and Dele with other footballers who dare to do on his pitch. Anyway, hurrah for Dele Alli!

Harry Redknapp says it could be Spurs for the title| The Sport Review

Well he really went for it with that prediction, didn't he? Now, he was open as a barn door once he mentioned Spurs, but it's fascinating stuff, the prediction. Couldn't ask for anything more from him, though. Top, top prediction, that.
