Wednesday is for winners.

Happy Wednesday, Spursland!

Basking in the glow of a good performance away to Norwich City, Spurs fans are starting to dream of something a bit more. Add on top of that an Arsenal mini-funk and it's all good times in N17 at the moment. All this commotion at the top of the table is leading me to hunker in for 100 days of madness because that is what this season has become.

I'm all in, that's a given, but I'm also not letting my guard down because that's the exact moment when Simon Cox hits a worldie and I'm left devastated. I have no idea if that metaphor worked, but those of you who watched that game know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, up the Spurs, but let's not mistake the first week in February for May. Let's get ready for this next 100 days.

And now for the "news":

MP: You, Dele, go score a goal.

Dele: Okay, skip!

MP: I told him to do that.

Spurs didn't get a backup striker this window because the transfer market is now pants on head crazy. What kind of world am I living in when Jackson Martinez is sold for the price of almost one whole Sergio Agüero?

So un-English of Friend to reply with sarcasm. Shocking turn of events, this.

Fairly convinced the people asking these questions are memory charmed every week by their bosses and sent back out to ask the same thing. It's amazing.

She is just starting to resemble every Italian grandmother ever. Make no mistake, she's still young and good looking, but all the warning signs are there. If she doesn't look like my Grandma Maria in thirty years, I owe you all milkshakes.
