Hello, people of the Hoddle!
I’m Pardeep Cattry, the newest Hoddle writer! You might know me from some writing I’ve done for Carty Free before, most recently a review of that book that everyone keeps blaming Tottenham’s poor run of form on. I’m the resident female of the group, like to spend time watching Tim Sherwood videos, and I have quite the sarcastic side, which I’m sure will come out in the days and weeks to come.
Anyway, unlike my predecessors, I don’t really have a thing. Like many, I concern myself with plenty of random things, from Eurovision to the feud between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel even though I haven’t seen a single Fast and Furious movie. (For what it’s worth: I’m still bummed the latest edition was not titled The F8 of the Furious.) I make no promises about the type of content, except that I found it entertaining in some way. I’m hoping you’ll all come for the links and stay for the randomness.
Anyway, for my first bit of business, I share with you Benevento’s last minute equalizer against AC Milan yesterday. This isn’t exactly terribly random on my part, but I cannot get enough of this. You may have already know the whole story, but in case you don’t, here it is. Benevento, bottom of Serie A, scored in the final minute of stoppage time to tie AC Milan and earn their first point of the season. The best part? Their goalkeeper, Alberto Brignoli scored.
Going well for Rino Gattuso. Just conceded a last seconds equaliser, Alberto Brignolo the Benevento goalkeeper with the goal!! Benevento 2-2 AC Milan.— Li'l Ze (@LilZe8) December 3, 2017

This should cheer you guys up after what was a not so great weekend for Spurs — unless you’re an AC Milan fan. In which case, sorry to rub it in. (That apology extends to Gennaro Gatuso.)
Anyway, I’ll stop rambling and get you those links you folks like.
Another managerial change in England! Leonid Slutsky has left Hull City, with the club currently sitting 20th in the Championship.
Chapecoense have qualified for the Copa Libertadores after a grabbing a last minute winner against Coritiba.
Marco Silva and Sam Allardyce have a feud now. I guess it’s time to pick sides and get t-shirts.
For a longer read, German outlet Spielverlagerung (try saying that five times fast) had an interview with Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco in which he talked tactics.
