A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links January 22, 2016

Friday ftw

Happy Friday, Spursland!

Today marks the end of another long week, but also the first transfer rumor that actually made me excited! Yes, indeed, today is a good day. Also, something about beating those pesky Foxes the other day makes me feel that the squad is getting it together mentally instead of falling apart. Only time will tell, and we'll know the answer in the short term quickly, as we have a nervy little trip to Selhurst Park tomorrow.

In the spirit of seeing transfer rumors I didn't expect, but like, and feeling good about Spurs prospects in late January, I'll leave this song which I didn't play every time, but definitely turned to on more than one occasion during those good old door man days.

And now for the "news":

Morata could be Tottenham bound| La Gazzetta dello Sport

He's playing less for Juventus. He's young, talented, and scored in a Champions League final. I'm trained to resist rumors like this, but it feels so good to think about. Let me live, conscience; dammit, let me live!!

Wenger: Tottenham and Chelsea may suffer at Wembley| Sky Sports

This is totally different. We aren't doing this for more seats. There have to be home games away from North London while the new Lane is built; it's just a matter of where.

With Spurs' success has come more attention for our manager. Nice little write up.

Handsome Pards: Conor Wickham could be the talk of the town if he added goals| Croydon Guardian

Even Alan the Smug realized what he just said and was all "nah, not going to happen".

So Wickham brace tomorrow then, yes?
