I’ve got a 3000 word Tactics Tuesday post going up in a few hours, which is why the Hoddle is delayed today. Sorry about that. Hopefully the tactics post makes it worth the delay. :)

I’m hoping to find something more in-depth soon, but for now this is a nice (HAR) little piece on surprise Ligue 1 leaders Nice.
