Happy Friday, Spursland!

The Magic of the Cup is about to return and I for one can hardly wait. I like magic as much as the next guy and, come to think of it, what kind of monster wouldn't?

So in honor of this glorious occasion I present a playlist, magic themed. Enjoy. Or not. Whatever.

This Magic Moment-The Drifters

Black Magic Woman-Santana

Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic-The Police

Magic-The Cars

Blue Magic-Jay-Z

And now for the "news":

Andy Gray predicts the Tottenham-Leicester match| The Sport Review

There is no mention of magic which is quite worrying. I don't want Andy to be scared when it shows up.

Wimmer is not going to Germany on loan and Andros isn't going anywhere on loan| Daily Mail

No, it's not a trick or even an illusion, Michael. Nobody has made the boys disappear; they just can't get a game. This is more worrying for Wimmer as he seems to fill a need for the club, while Andros' days are numbered.

Oh good Harry Kane is linked to Madrid| Express

It's going to take a memory charm of epic strength to shock this rumor from the dark corners of my Silly Season scarred cerebellum.

Watch our charming midfielder Dele Alli during a driving lesson| Daily Mail

Just when I think the Mail aren't as an atrocious rag as they used to be, they go and conjure a piece like this up. And all the obvious allusions to driving throughout? What kind of hacky writing is that?? Have they no self respect???
