The spurs Bigsoccer mob march through Enfield .
The Sanga TV coverage was the funniest, asian lads driving round Birmingham and giving lifts to coppers chasing rioters.
Nothing will top the millwall vigilante mob chanting "no loots us ,and we dont care" .
Was given a stream to that from COYS. Brilliant. Also, did you happen to catch the local Brum commercials? Specifically, the one about the Sofa Factory that had that amazing jingle? Local commercials are amazing.

Crouch went in to get a hair cut from that guy. Looking at that pic made me depressed. But, do note the autographed pic of Crouch by the mirror!
Carling Cup 3rd round draw: lots of all-premier league ties, some smaller teams could go a long way in this competition. Tricky tie for us up at Stoke.
Cardiff City v Leicester City
Wolves v Millwall
Chelsea v Fulham
Aldershot Town or Carlisle United v Rochdale
Arsenal v Shrewsbury Town
Burnley v MK Dons
Leeds United v Manchester United
Brighton v Liverpool
Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United
Manchester City v Birmingham City
Blackburn Rovers v Leyton Orient or Bristol Rovers
Swindon Town or Southampton v Charlton or Preston North End
Everton v West Brom
Crystal Palace or Wigan v Middlesbrough
Aston Villa v Bolton Wanderers
Stoke City v Tottenham Hotspur
One of the worst draws possible for us.
Tough draw but our record at Stoke under Harry is not bad.
Just read in Croatian media that young Tomislav Gomelt scored 3 goals and picked up a red card for Spurs juniors..Spurs defeated Inter Milan 7-1 in some kind of futures tournament..Maybe this kid has a bright future..
6-1 at half time and we were down to 10 men
The Ivorian kid Coulibaly apparently did well, too.
Maybe . . . do you know why he picked up a Red Card?
He fouled someone who had a clear path to the goal which is usually automatic red..
Lengthy but excellent book excerpt from a Spurs fan talking about his depression and how the game helps him through it. A mix of events and feelings we are all familiar with, and more harrowing stories of the poor guy's condition.

4 goalkeepers and no Danny Rose.
(Edit - guess he falls in the U-21 category, like Walker too)
I too was perplexed by the 4 goalkeepers thing. We seemed so desperate to clear out all these players, yet somehow I think we could have kept one additional outfield player that'll get more time than Alnwick.
what did they do with Falque?
Sandro signs a new 5 year contract, great news:
Love how this happens the day after he talks about how great it would be to play in Italy.
Any 'gentlemen's agreements' included?
The fact that gentlemen's agreements only apply to gentlemen definitely works in our favor.
Not sure where else to stick this, but a quick plug for a new-ish Spurs podcast called "The Fighting Cock"
Great fun and yeah, they are quite sweary, but I don't mind even if they are fond of the C word. It's on iTunes as well. Pretty much a polar opposite of The Spurs Show.
I know we talked about this previously, but I can't stand the Chicago Dan guy on there. He's trying wayyyyy to hard to fit in with the other guys, and it annoys me. Be proud that you're an American, is that not cool? 'kin posers drive me mad.
Well I suppose that when you move over there, you just start to talk like everyone else does just because of your surroundings.
If your name is Brad Friedel, you do.
There's a fine line between assimilating and sounding like a douche, though.
1 year to go on the new training site:
So in a year we could have new training ground, new manager, new spine to the team and possibly starting on the new stadium.
