Happy Tuesday Spursland!

It’s going to be a slightly skinnier Hoddle than normal today on account of me having a busy morning mourning the end of Gigi Buffon’s Italy career at work- so let’s dive straight in shall we?

Theme of the Day


Shade! Young Chelsea star and Crystal Palace loanee Rueben Loftus-Cheek’s dad has said some very nice things about the way Mauricio Pochettino develops academy kids, backhandedly criticising Chelsea’s youth policy in the process.

Rumours! talkSPORT (citing the Sun, who I will never link to) claims that Spurs are interested in signing U17 World Cup-winning midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, who is currently plying his trade in the Championship at Wolves.

Pride! Gareth Southgate will allow Eric Dier to retain the England captaincy in the team’s next friendly against Brazil.

Elsewhere in football...

Triste! Italy are not going to the World Cup.

Inquest! Christian Pulisic doesn’t think US soccer is doing enough to help young talent develop.

And finally...

LOL! Honduras’ coach Jorge Luis Pinto is standing by his accusation that the Australian team attempted to spy on one of his team’s training sessions with a drone, despite the device turning out to be a toy belonging to a child.
