Happy Thursday Spursland!  There was a time during the the second world war, known as the phoney war. The time when everyone was all like "Yo, it's on," but nobody did anything because it just wasn't time to make with the tanks yet.  We are currently in the footballing equivalent of that. The title is won, we know Spurs aren't making top four, we will probably finish 6th or 7th.  It's whatevs, bruh. Sure we still have the FA Cup, which we aren't in so who cares, and the Champion's League isn't over, but that's a big ol' shoulder shrug.  The summer has basically started but nobody is blowing stacks of cash on players they over value for dumb reasons.  Welcome to phony #batcountry.

And now the "news"

Spurs are the 13th richest club on earth-Sky Sports

Sooo I was under the impression this list was already released for the year.  So you know, this isn't anything new for Spurs, other than it basically lays out that Champion's League football really is the only thing holding us back from being able to recruit some of the world's best players. We won't get Messi to leave Spain but we got the money to buy and pay really good guys.  The most interesting thing is looking at how much Manchester United are worth compared to Real Madrid or Barca and then compare those three teams.  I guarantee you will start humming to yourself "one of these things is not like the others".

Lamela has a day out in London with the fam-Mirror

Just going by his choice in sweaters I would not accept a drink from young Erik if offered.

Vidal is a footballing machine, Sergio Ramos is a scarecrow-SB Nation Soccer

Well we have kind of known that Sergio is kind of just a super athlete and not some amazingly skilled defender, or footballer.  So this is no surprise, but he does have the haircut of a douche and someone making him look so dumb pleases me.

Patriots likely deflated balls in AFC Championship Game-SB Nation

ZZZZZZZZZZZZ [Editor's note: ]

Backheel Breakfast: Messi says he will back La Liga strike IF it happens-SB Nation Soccer

Have you guys heard of this thing?  The Backheel Breakfast is produced 5 days a week by CFC founder KevBro McCauley and is a lot like the Hoddle except it's written by a footballing mind and nobody comments over there.  Go out and explore this world, my lovelies, you might like it.
