What's beef?

Better than Ryan Mason?

Good morning!

Yesterday while Dustin was talking with the writer's room about Radiohead, Willie, GN, and I were relegated to non-entities as our lack of Radiohead love and knowledge was mocked and then, even more hurtfully, ignored. In my ploys to be noticed, I made a comment about how next week the ratings should be to the theme of best diss tracks/albums of all time, just because I think none of our lives will be complete until we've read Menno explaining the artistic merits of "Lemonade".

Although my dream will probably stay just that, it got me to thinking. Lots of you all are mad about or at Ryan Mason. For what it's worth, I'm not of the opinion that he was much worse than he ever is on Sunday; and moreover,  I'm just not inclined to beat a dead horse. But some of us are! So, instead of ranting about how he isn't very good at the things we all know he isn't good at and have for some time, why not channel that internet rage into something creative, dear readers?

Here it is, Hoddlers, you're chance to flex your inner-Rabbit and battle your way to the top. Best Ryan Mason diss track title gets a mention on my wee bitty Twitter account. Best 12 or 16 bars of Ryan Mason diss gets a shout from the big account. This is a creative takeover. Put away the flannels and trade the Doc Martins for Js. Hip hop is in the house today.

Good luck.

And now for the "news":

Don't tell anyone my theory, but I suspect that Tottenham are just as likely to buy high level attackers and move Dele back to the pivot from time to time as we are to get a midfield star during the summer. I'd like to be wrong, but only time will tell.

And tells Arsene that his claim that this Spurs dominance will be short-lived is, like, your opinion man.
