The Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham news and links for Wednesday, May 4

It’s a Sonny hoddle!

Goodness gracious, hoddlers. how is it only wednesday?

Well would you look at this: Son Heung-min is finally on Twitter! Yes yes, it’s real. Take a look:

He may have even broken the internet - 200,000 likes and counting!

It’s really about time, isn’t it? The world is in dire need of Sonny content.

Thankfully for us it appears Tottenham Hotspur are giving us just that. As some of you might know, a young Spurs fan by the name of Ryley Keys got the surprise visit of a lifetime not long ago from Ben Davies and Joe Rodon. But it appears he is a massive fan of Sonny, who ended up facetiming the incredible lad.

And remember that wonder goal Sonny scored against Leicester the other day? Well, he honoured young Ryley in his celebration. Take a look:

That video has four of my favourite things: Sonny, a wonder goal, a Tottenham win and a lovely tribute to a young fan.

(Don’t forget: Ryley will be taking a penalty at half time during the North London Derby on 12 May)

And now that Sonny is on Twitter, it means there are even more possibilities for him and Harry Kane to link up.

In the middle of typing this I made a half-attempted search for Spurs players who aren’t on Twitter, first suspecting Ben Davies doesn’t have an account. But, apparently, he does!

Here is his second-to-last tweet:

Why hasn’t Davies posted on Twitter in the last two years? It could only be a boon to the social media platform. And he doesn’t have one of those corny graphics, either. That’s a proper photoshopped headshot he got from his mobile.

So far as notable holdouts go, Hugo Lloris is the only one that comes to mind. Sure, Cristian Romero and others may not have a Twitter, but they still have the Instagrams and whatnot.

French Twitter awaits Hugo’s arrival.
