Happy Thursday, Spurs fans. There's only so much one can take when you're a blog manager with a day job. Three matches in a week is just about it. Here it is, nearly 11 p.m. my time. I should be in bed. I'm old, I can't handle late nights anymore, but here I am still writing your Hoddle while Salmon Chase continues to, I dunno, swim upstream or something.

Please God hurry up and start the season before I crack.

And now the "news"

Tottenham Hotspur linked with Raul Mierles because reasons - Gianluca DiMarzio

DiMarzio may not have TANCREDIBILITY but I don't buy this for a second. This simply says that Mierles is on Tottenham's "wish list." Well, I have a $500 coffee roaster on my Amazon wish list, but I doubt I'm going to be getting that anytime soon. Although, this would up Tottenham's hair and beard game significantly, so maybe it's not such a bad move after all.
