A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links April 11, 2016

One does not simply walk off a bus into a competitive football match.

Good morning!

In honor of Tottenham Hotspur football club beating Manchester United football club at White Hart Lane for the first time in what seems like forever, I will dig deep for a topic today. By choosing this talking point I hope to point out how Spurs have not only surpassed the most outstanding English football team in history in their on field performance this year, but in organization, too.

As to not dilute the gravity of my thesis, and without further ado, I present my analysis of yesterday's match, in musical form.

And now for the "news":

Schneiderlin questions United's mentality| FourFourTwo

Not fun to be the fifth best team in England playing against one of the best, is it lads? :)

The wordplay is weak, but I don't care. Also, seriously, will any team remember how to kick the f****** ball in the penalty area against Leicester?

I'm not mad, more amazed. I watched Simon bleeding Cox hit a miraculous goal against us some years ago from 20 yards out when we gave him and inch and I remember thinking gave him an inch, we deserved that. Conversely, Jack Rodwell can't hit the target from six yards out with nothing but a prone Kasper Schmeichel in front of him. C'mon universe, it's time to play your part.

If it's the hope that kills you, it's the belief that keeps us alive.

Although disappointed Nacer Chadli did not play as a libero, Tim found nice things to say about his former club on a day when Louis van Gaal did his best to channel his inner Sherwood.

Championship reads| Guardian

No, this isn't about a certain team in blue. The division below the Premier League is winding up their season, too. Get acquainted with who is going down, going up, and working their way into the play-off.
