Happy Thursday, Spursland!

Welcome to the magical place known as "Cupland". Not all people see the value in a place like Cupland, but it's here for the immediate future so we best learn how to deal with it via solid international and domestic policies. Dealing with the Cuppies can be rewarding, but taxing so I say Minister Mauricio imposes strict rationing for the time being. No more minutes played than necessary.

While there may be nervous moments when we feel exposed or under the gun, just remember that because we haven't wasted our minutes, they will hopefully still be some left at the end, when engagement with Cupland is much more serious. So rationing of minutes now, and rationing of minutes for the foreseeable future. It's for the greater good.

And now for the "news":

Pochettino really likes English football| Express

I like the direct translation he made "play in the provinces". He's right, though. Go to the South Coast, the North, East or West Midlands and the crowds are there. It may be a Sky Six league most years, but that doesn't stop the masses from coming out.

Soufiane Boufal could be linked to Spurs again this summer| SportWitness

His agent is making his soon to be availability public. This will probably be a thing again come summer.

Also, didn't silly season just end? It's nice to be in a title race and not really worrying about transfers yet.

Spurs won't punt on Europa fixtures-Poche| Mirror

We can put out a rotated side tonight that will have more quality and be better rested than our preferred starting XI from last year. That's some sold their soul to the devil type s*** right there.
