Today at the top is Tottenham captain Josie Green.
Ramble of the Day
We at Cartilage Free Captain are still feeling the high of yesterday’s very unique FA Cup game, and so you’ll see a little bit more about it at some point today. I’ll start, though, by making today’s Hoddle a recap of what actually happened, in images.
I managed to find a partial view of the Cartilage Free logo in the goalkeepers picture, and included the wonderful “Special One my arse” sign that I hope this person offers to a Tottenham supporters’ group in case things go badly during the José Mourinho era. I have to include one more artifact of the day, and that’s this:

As always, my thanks to the photographers above: Clive Brunskill, Martin Rickett, Paul Ellis, and whoever was taking the pictures for Tottenham.
tl;dr: Yesterday’s game was great, wasn’t it?
