A Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links June 28, 2016

All the world's a stage for teams still playing football

Good morning.

They should have lost hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a turd.
Wayne Rooney, and Jack Wilshere, but mostly Wayne Rooney,
Creep in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of Roy Hodgson's time;
And all our disappointments have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief Euros!
Football's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, usually loses on penalties,
And then is heard no more (in England at least). It is a tale
Told by Ian Wright, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.

And now for the "news":
