The Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links for Monday, September 21

I have nothing to say, so here's some Dumbledore.

Happy Monday, Spurs-land!  As I sit here with a glass of bourbon beside my keyboard, I'm finding myself strangely without anything really to say. It's one reason I didn't want to do the Hoddle regularly after Salmon Roosevelts retired... the ability to come up with a different little vignette to open the links section every single day would wear me down within a week. It's a testament to Salmon that he did it for four years.

So instead of wracking my brain and coming up with something witty, insightful, prophetic, philosophical, or clever, instead I'll just share a few words from my one of my favorite literary characters, Albus Dumbledore.

Nitwit, oddment, blubber, tweak.

Thank you.

And now, the "news."

#wellactually... Look, I'm on record as liking Ade and wishing things had turned out differently between himself and Tottenham Hotspur. And he's probably going to go down in history as one of the more under-recognized strikers in modern Premier League history. But the dude burned his own bridges, and he didn't need any help.
