Ramble of the Day
Let’s keep things light and fun on this Thursday, a rare day where we collectively celebrate the fact that Tottenham actually won yesterday. Anyway, a prompt:
Get your Willian Jose name by combining a player that Spurs tried and failed to sign and the first name of a Spurs manager.— ЯicheyЯevol (@RicheyRevol) January 22, 2020
I’m Rivaldo Andre.
Some answers, in the order of when I thought of them:
- Leandro André
- Leandro Harry (aka Leandro ‘Arry)
- João André
- Jack Mauricio
- Paulo Mauricio
- Jadon Mauricio
- Eden Harry (aka Eden ‘Arry)
We could also play the game of Guess Which Country This Fictional Player Might Be From! - some of those seem easier to figure out than others.
tl;dr: This isn’t a long ramble, figure it out yourself.
