Thursday is happening

Happy Thursday, Spursland!

Things are starting to move, ladies and gents. Striker targets are resigning in France, Adebayor is trying to get back into the Premier League, and 19 year olds, four months into their top level careers, are set to double their wages.

Wait, what? Man, Bone Thugs tried to warn me about this...explicitly.

Seriously, why are all my talents not recognized by capitalism at large?

I need the magic of the Cup to get here soon to soothe my cynical soul.

And now for the "news":

Dele Alli disappoints me by accepting new contract, proving he has human cares| Mirror

Ol' 'Arry: 'Utd. could win the title with Bale'| BBC

This headline made me laugh, considering what he actually said. It's almost as if the BBC was disappointed Harry was sensible and needed to tap into those sweet, sweet Manc page clicks.

Mon dieu ! Je ne parle pas français. Quelle dommage !
