Happy Thursday, Spursland!

While our boys in Lilywhite dropped the match to the MLS All-Stars last night, 2-1, there was plenty of positives to come out of that match. Who else was impressed with Dele Alli in the midfield, looking calm and collected? Kevin Wimmer also looked like he'd been playing for this club for more than just a few weeks. Kieran Trippier kept pounding cross after cross into the box. And, of course, there's the Hurrikane, who unleashed a missile from his right foot. I think it's safe to say he's itching for the season to start.

And now the "news"....
