Terrible Taste Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, Spursland!

I think it's time for an old fashioned poll. We need to cut through the bull**** and deal with the pressing topics of the day. What's a worse take: a) Josh Onomah wasn't good on Sunday or b) losing in the cups is a good thing?

The cheeky part of my brain wanted to call today "Terrible Take Tuesday" but even I thought it was cheesy after one second of consideration.

The questions may seem mean spirited towards those who may actually believe those things, but that isn't my intent. I'd like to see people explaining why they hold these opinions despite probable pushback. Beliefs unchallenged are seldom worthwhile beliefs after all, and it always makes for good conversation.

And now for the "news":

He also says he was happy with la Viola's performance, showed the lads were up for it. If you don't like my abridged translation, well then, you go and learn to read Italian.

I think Harry Redknapp is really the overlooked answer here. Come on, Woodward, do it.
