Happy Tuesday that feels a little bit like a Saturday!
Ramble of the Day
This is one rare days where the Premier League does a Saturday schedule on a weekday, making the Hoddle a weird place. There’s a game seven and a half hours after this publishes, and a pretty small amount of time for anyone here to have conversations that aren’t related to today’s match.
As a result, I don’t have any large points to make today. I do, though, come with a tweet that feels on topic:
It’s a great snapshot of how big a deal Son Heung-min is in South Korea, which I’m sure surprises few of you at this point. It’s also just a nice thing to share on a Tottenham website, because being a part of the fanbase is creating a Son appreciation zone. (I hope he does get some rest today, though!)
tl;dr: The seconds are ticking until kickoff, so there’s no time for a full Hoddle. Here’s a tweet about Son Heung-min instead.
