Hey, everyone!

If you want to take your mind off this beyond miserable managerial serach for just a moment, the Hoddle is here for you. (It’s also fine if you don’t — you have truly earned the right to complain in the comments section.)

Ramble of the Day

The last few days, and yesterday’s Denmark-Belgium match especially, have seen a number of touching tributes to Christian Eriksen. Today’s Hoddle will be dedicated to those tributes (check the links, too) and to Eriksen himself, who is thankfully doing well.
