Happy pseudo-match day, Spursland! An Audi Cup is out there for the winning but I don't care, just get on with this charade and come home healthy.

In other news: I'm moving, suckers! Cue up the Tombstone gifs all you like, but you can't stop me from #buzzing like a young Harry Kane.

Jose Mourinho wants Danny Rose--Express

He even kissed Roberto on the mouth while cupping his hands around his face at a party in Cuba after saying this. That means everything is cool, right?

Spurs target Kevin Vogt while Man Utd target Gareth Bale--The Sports Review

F*** you, Sports Review.

The Mail publishes something about Harry Kane that doesn't make him sound like a Manchester United player--Daily Mail

Now that the Mail is saying reasonable things about Harry Kane staying at Tottenham I'm very, very scared.

Are the newly promoted Premier League teams cut from the correct jib?--SB Nation Soccer

I have no idea what most of the words I used in my description mean because I was nervous just linking to the brilliant Andi Thomas, a writer who will treat the English language with the respect it deserves.
