Good morning!

I'm the follow up to Skipjack's "How to Explain Dele Alli and Eric Dier to Your Children". Great. Faced with the lamentable task of going on after his hot set, I have two options 1) raise my level 2) pack up my things, like a baby, and quit.

And now for the "news":

This duo have been great| The Sport Review

Yes, there are other duos besides Dele and Eric. Who am I kidding? Despite what this article says, no, there aren't.

Kevin Friend taken off Tottenham-Stoke duty| Daily Mail

As a Foxes supporter, he was deemed too controversial an appointment for this match. I, for one, think this is a little much. It's the referees in the Leicester matches that let them defend with their hands, and hex the ball that are clearly the issue.

Diversionary tactics here from the FA in a Machiavellian long game.

Tottenham interested in Juventus forward| Forza Italia Football

I can see him wanting to come to Spurs, but I can't see Mauricio, Paul Mitchell, and Rob McKenzie looking at him and nodding their heads in agreement.

Callum Wilson is on Spurs radar| Metro

Apparently, he is also on West Ham's radar, too. So weird!! That's no less than three or four players that we are scrapping with them over. Like, that almost seems completely improbable. Made up even, if we didn't know that the press would never break our trust in that way.

Somehow losing to Kimbo Slice is still worse.
