10-0 in the World Cup? Could be worse.

Happy Monday, Spurs fans. Salmon Chase is, well, let's just say "indisposed." We definitely won't say "drunk" or even "all-day drunk," nor will be we impugn his dignity by suggesting that 9:00 p.m. on a Sunday is not the most ideal time to let his editor know that there will be no Hoddle forthcoming, forcing him to stay up past his bedtime to crank something out when he should be enjoying a boulevardier and the company of his lovely bride of the past 13 years.

So yeah, we'll just go with "indisposed."

And now the "news"

Spurs targeting 33-year old former Wigan goalkeeper - HITC

I remember when Ali Al-Habsi was good. In fact, the Omani was very, very good for a couple of seasons when Wigan were still in the Premier League. But this rumor is crappy because it assumes that we're selling Hugo Lloris and that we're replacing him with a 33-year old former Wigan goalkeeper. I don't care that the article says it's a replacement for Brad Friedel; that's what Jonathan Miles is for.

Look, I know, I know, but come on, harsh non-Togolese manager dude. Ade's going through some personal shit right now. Cut him a little slack, bro.
