Happy Friday, Spurs fans! Here's your music pick of the day. Some of you may remember this from the first season soundtrack to True Detective, but I've loved this track for years.

Here's Steve Earle: "Meet Me in the Alleyway."

And now, the "news"

Spurs favorites to sign Breel Embolo - GiveMeSport

Hey look, another article about Spurs being linked to Breel Embolo! Except I bet we're not. This is another great example of Transfer Rumor Telephone (Purple Monkey Dishwasher): the GiveMeSport article references the Telegraph, which itself references another Telegraph article, which then leads back to... the original Mirror articlethat started all these rumors and is spurious enough to be why we haven't written about Embolo to begin with. For the record, Embolo is a crazy good prospect... but I doubt we're in for him.

Juventus is targeting Christian Eriksen - Gazzeta World

Sure, Juventus, sure. Trade you for Pogba, yeah?

Tottenham target Sofiane Feghouli signs with Fenerbahce - Turkish Football

And by "target" I assume they mean Paul Mitchell might have said "oh hey what about this guy" and Daniel Levy said "naa."

Can we guess which Premier League team you support? - The Independent

The quiz thought I supported Arsenal, which means that it is dumb and you should probably not take it.
