Wrestling twitter wins

Happy Tuesday, Spursland!

That opening tagline is something I kept from the old writer of this feature, what was his name again? Tipping the cap to the past is a good thing once in a while, and we will do so today.

I assume many of you out there are on Twitter and go through the gauntlet every Monday night/Tuesday morning called "Wrestling Twitter", and no, all those people tweeting about "Vince" are not talking about me. There was just so much Wrestling Twitter in my timeline tonight that I couldn't think of anything else to write about, and instead of trying to beat them, I'm joining them.

Let's hear the best analogies of players and personalities on our current squad to WWE performers. Trust me, I would kick this off, but I haven't regularly watched WWE since the early aughts and really only pay attention to the Rumble.

Anyway, have fun, and if you don't know anything about wrestling, I guess there's always football to discuss.

And now for the "news":

Rumor has it that Daniel Levy has AVB's initials tattooed on his forearm, Memento style, so he never forgets how good he has it with Mauricio.

Tottenham and some other teams can make the Big Five pay for complacency| Independent

Now it's the Big Five? Seriously, I don't think any of those clubs became complacent. Two have been run poorly in the transfer market, one got old (even if it keeps winning trophies), one tried to break the Jose Mourinho three year curse and curses be real, and one is Arsenal, so being trash is in their DNA.

This Dembele fetishism is getting a bit out of control, isn't it?

Remember the days when we thought they might get relegated on goal difference? Good times.
