A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links March 1, 2016

Terrible Taste Tuesday rings in March

Happy Tuesday, Spursland!

As we move on from our scintillating victory over the weekend, the reality of more matches sets in. And not just any matches. We've got two derbies this week to make an already intense title race feel even more pressurized.

And no, these are not Palace or QPR level derbies; these are the real deal. We've got the famous North London derby and what I like to call the Half Cocked Cup, West Ham's biannual final for glory, a Cup final that goes off with its context unbeknownst to our players and support.

Frankly, we don't like them, and they don't like us. It's fair to say that we can all get along as human beings on an individual basis, but on the club level, it's as close to real hatred as it can get within the realm of sport. So I'm digging deep into Cartilage Free memes today as I pose a question.

What's worse? a) Arsenal b) West Ham c) Drake in the Hoddle

This hurts me more than it hurts you, trust me, so I need you all to really think about this. If you need me...

And now for the "news":

As Spurs fans everywhere are talking themselves in and out of optimism, Claudio Ranieri begins to prepare his mind for the inevitable second place finish.

Manchester United's win over Arsenal was an apology from LVG| SB Nation Soccer

We accept, and are glad to know you know that you all didn't deserve to win in August, too. This was a fine apology. Long may they continue.
