A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links March 16, 2016

Where would you be without banter?

Good morning!

Now that we've answered the age old question of how many writers does it take to post a Hoddle when Vince is away, it's back to business.

Banter. It's all about the banter. Whether it's Dele Alli and Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane, Dele Alli and the whole squad via FourFourTwo interviews. Not to be outdone, I look forward to Mauricio joining in on the fun and sending out Ryan Mason and Tom Carroll against Dortmund again.

What a laugh we'll be having then!

And now for the "news":

We all know someone like Dele in real life. They're called instigators, and instigators are usually insufferable, so I'm happy he is on our side because imagine not loving him.

I would probably murder seven people to live comfortably in Malaga. All Bentley had to do was be a crap footballer.

Then in the next sentence he becomes a footballer again. He's right, though. The athletes aren't really the ones thinking about this stuff in terms of big picture. They have the actual job at hand to focus on.

Sonny barely makes it into the team and Clinton has been hurt for months so the glut doesn't seem as extreme as it is, but yeah, let's sign a non-world class attacking mid. Kicker or the agent who made this up need to go jump in a pond.

Those penalties were heroic!
