Terrible Taste Tuesday and match day become one.

Happy Tuesday, Spursland!

It was a quiet window for Spurs, meaning many striker-salivating supporters were left wanting more. You all know how I feel about the situation, and if you happen to not know, get ready to hear it. Sonny and Chadli are more than capable of holding that spot down in rotation, or if Harry gets injured in the short term. If he goes down with a season ender, that's probably trouble, but there aren't many teams in the world that can sustain an injury to a player like Harry and not miss a beat. Splashing 25 million pounds for a backup isn't going to change that.

Seeing as this is Terrible Taste Tuesday and match day, I've decided to make a playlist dedicated to the now closed window or tonight's match against Norwich City. See if you can figure out how and to what event each song relates.

If there is anything worse than a playlist, it's a playlist with mystery themes!

The last player Spurs reportedly wanted that ended up at Carrow Road was Ricky von Wolfswinkel. Maddison could quit football right now and have a better career at Norwich than ol' Wolfie.

A prediction should not be as oddly reassuring as this, but as long as Mark Lawrenson thinks Tottenham suck, the world isn't that different.

I don't claim to know much more than the average fan about tennis, but this guy is good, and a fun character. Watching him and Federer this past summer was one of my favorite sporting moments of the year.
