That was a fun Champions League group stage, wasn’t it? (Remember the old days, when this team couldn’t get out of a group with Monaco, Bayer Leverkusen, and CSKA Moscow? Sorry, I’ll stop.)
First things first: the mystery man in the image from yesterday’s Hoddle was Dele Alli. I saw a bunch of you (or at least one of you) guessed right, so well done!
Secondly, I’m going to skip the ramble for today. Instead, I will take a suggestion dropped in my very first Hoddle, and I’ll do an AMA! So, drop your questions, but know that I’m on the East Coast of the United States and five hours behind those in Britain, so I won’t be answering these right away because I like to sleep. I will, however, wake up at a decent hour to answer your pressing questions and possibly ramble there.
Now, for some links!
