Happy Thursday Spursland!

You’ve got a little bit of indie synth-soul from HOMESHAKE for your Theme of the Day today, and then below that your daily serving of links. Enjoy!


Spurs are apparently set to duke it out with Liverpool for the signing of Bremen’s David Philipp. Errr... to your preferred choice of search engine!
