Friday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links May 15, 2015

Happy Friday Spursland! And I once again have a bone to pick, a nit to pick, (a nose to pick?) with the people running the Premier League.  You see the big game this weekend? It's available to be seen on TV in America. It's probably available in Australia (I refuse to do research) Japan, New Zealand, Canada and Qatar.  Like more than probably it is available.  But it is not available in England.  How? HOW is that possible? It isn't that there are logistical difficulties in putting this out there.  Even if it can't be on regular TV, put it on PPV Stream it online, people will....PAY YOU MONEY to watch their team.  Isn't that the thing we do here? We put on football matches in order to convince people to pay us money to see them. That's a pretty great strategy, it's worked well so far, HOW ABOUT YOU GUYS KEEP ON DOING IT.  It's an English Premier League game that can't be see in England. REDZONE CHANNEL, MOFO, DO YOU SPEAK IT!?

And now the "news"

So Levy better watch his ass if he knows what's good for him.

Warburton Backs Pritchard For Spurs Success-Guardian

OK maybe Pritch is safe.  Also Harry Kane and Bentaleb. And side note, doesn't "Warburton" sound like some sort of heirloom variety of carrot they only grown in Kent?

Suarez Could Miss Final-SB Nation Soccer

I don't think that is a huge worry, if you can't win the champion's league with just Messi and Neymar in the attack then you can't win the Champion's League.

Real Madrid Ensured Their Own Downfall Again-SB Nation Andi Thomas

I want to give sweet pleasure to the prose this man writes. How do you get the phrase "half magpie, half Macbeth" into an article about sports?
