Happy Monday, Spursland! Oh gang, oh hoo hoo, hee hee. Oh, it's hilarious. Let me tell you this funny thing that happened. The people who run football, they had this great idea; Lets take a break one weekend from playing the league games everyone wants and instead play meaningless, vaguely organized international games instead. It will give national team managers valuable time to injure players that teams are counting on and paying lots of money to. And then -- AND HERE IS WHERE IT GETS HILARIOUS! -- after everyone comes back, to make up for the lost weekend there will be fixture congestion. For example, Spurs have a stretch coming up of six games in just 16 days. GENIUS!!!

For the record, that's just something one of the writers said, and longtime readers know I don't fact check things, I can't it makes me sleepy.

And now the "news"
