Good morning, Spursland!

Another work week has started up, but soon we'll have actual matches to talk about to pair up with the rest of the silly season rumors. Can you believe we're less than two weeks away from the opener at Old Trafford? The time has flown by in this off-season, but there's still a little bit left to kill off.

Spurs flew into the States this weekend ahead of their match-up with the MLS All-Stars. There's all sorts of fun stuff going on in Colorado the next few days, so if you're near the area, be sure to try and make the trip.

And now the "news"...
