A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links March 14, 2016

Manic Monday

Good morning!

For all the worrying we've done over the years as Tottenham supporters, I think yesterday put things in perspective. When I started to follow Premier League football, Aston Villa were good. At least on level, if not higher, than us in terms of talent. They, as the article I linked last weekly aptly noted, are now a rotting corpse of a club.

Maybe it's sad and maybe it's not, who am I to judge, but I know this. I'm never going to complain about a Europa League lineup as long as I remember Villa's slow descent into embarrassment.

To segue from the sad show in Birmingham, I want to go on record for being pro-Kyle Walker for selection against Dortmund. Kieran Trippier sends a nice cross, but that's about it. I think it was reasonable to buy him last summer, and I'm sure we're seeing the best of Kyle because he hasn't been run into the ground, but just this once, I'd like the rotation to be broken.

Let's keep this bounce back going.

And now for the "news":

I have no idea what to do with this rumor. All my feelings are cancelling each other out, creating a void of cogent thought. All of my ex-girlfriend's dreams have just come true. I'm at a loss for words.
