A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News and Links for Monday, December 6

Things are starting to look up.

Happy Monday, Hoddlers! Jake left his phone in a restaurant in Davenport, Iowa yesterday. Which normally is just annoying but not crippling, however SB Nation just implemented 2FA authentication for all writers, and unless you had the foresight to include Authy in your browser it means you’re tied to your phone if you want to log in to actually write stuff. And Jake can’t. Because his phone’s in Davenport.

So. Hi, everyone! How’s your day? Probably better than Jake’s

I can’t help but think that Saturday’s big win was the beginning of a turning point for Tottenham Hotspur this season. Yes, Swansea were terrible, but it’s felt like Spurs have been playing to the level of their competition for the past month, since Toby and Kane went down with injuries. This was the first time we’ve absolutely flattened an opponent in what feels like forever. It feels great.

The next four matches are CSKA at Wembley in the Champions League, at Manchester United, and home to Burnley and Hull City. These are all winnable games, and there’s absolutely no reason why Spurs can’t get a result against CSKA and take six points from the next three league matches, or more. A strong run and a few teams ahead of them dropping points, like what Liverpool and City did this weekend, and Spurs are right back in a solid position to finish top four.

Toby’s coming back soon, Harry’s back, and Spurs are scoring again. It’s hard not to start feeling a little bit optimistic.

Here are a few links to get you going today.
