Happy Wednesday, Spursland. We play Qarabag from Azerbaijan tomorrow, and we actually managed to find someone who supports them to talk to about the game. Amazing scenes. It's incredible, Geoff.

Have you ever slowly realized that you're staying up later than you want, waking up later than you want, ignoring the problem, until suddenly you can't fall asleep until 2 a.m. and you're wondering what the hell happened to the person who used to go to bed by 11 p.m. and wake up by 7 a.m.? Because this happens to me frequently. Is there a good way to correct this other than doing an all nighter so you pass out at like 9 p.m. the next day? And by a good way, I mean one that doesn't involve drugs? Because I'm not about that drugs life.

With that, here's the "news."

"We believe we can develop his game and I think we need to be patient with him." Yes, but this is year three of The Erik Lamela Experience. Despite the assist last weekend, lots of people are all out of patience.

I'm sharing this because it's the big story of the day and I trust y'all to be responsible in discussing it. Don't say "why is everything always about race?!?" or anything like it because you'll get banned, k?

Finally, we close with Fallon d'Floor nominee Sergio Ramos.
