A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links December 8, 2015

Terrible taste Tuesday.

Happy Tuesday, Spursland!

The theme this week was pretty easy to choose. We played a Tony Pulis managed side and the results were predictable. A 90 minute homage to borderline tackles and long balls; and while effective enough for the Baggies, it is annoying to play against at best, vein popping enraging at its worst.

I literally hate watching matches managed by him and can think of no worse style in the Premier League at this moment. It's taken me years to get over my hate of Stoke due to tactics employed under his watch.

So let's hear it: what's your least favorite team or manager to play against solely based on their style of play?

And now for the "news":

They want to sign Andros because the club needs more English passion, not end product, apparently.
