Hi, all!

Fresh off their Gold Cup win over the weekend, the USMNT really nailed the brief on winning a trophy in Las Vegas.

Ramble of the Day

Moving on to Tottenham’s actual manager, the club’s social media team have officially moved on to the content phase where we get to know Nuno Espírito Santo. Last week, the club shared a series of videos that has him answering some very important questions. He seems pretty likable, honestly.

Thoughts, in bulletpoint form:

  • Asking about the beard was absolutely the right call, another smart move from the Spurs social team.
  • He has the right opinion on the away kit. I’m glad he isn’t creating unnecessary issues between him and the fanbase.
  • I think it’s funny that he just had “chicken” for dinner, but I prefer details. How was the chicken cooked and seasoned? Was it paired with anything?
  • Calling his coaching staff his role models is honestly very sweet.
  • I respect Espírito Santo’s preference for smooth jazz. I don’t listen to smooth jazz but it’s an interesting pick that does not offend me.

That was a nice little introduction to Espírito Santo for the Spurs audience, wasn’t it?

tl;dr: Brief thoughts as Spurs’ social media accounts begin to introduce us to Nuno Espírito Santo, the person.
