Transfer window doesn't close until after the EPL starts, then the interlull comes 3 or 4 rounds in.  Nothing like breaking up the cohesion and momentum!

Agreed. Very herky jerky.

On a related but side note:
How to make soccer big in America:
1. sell the television rights to World Cup qualifying matches to a brand new sports channel that a majority of Americans won't get...and then only show the live version of that game on the Spanish language version of that sports channel.
2. ????
3. Profit.

Welcome to modern FIFA. Money trumps all. Hence why the 2022 World Cup will be played in 120 degree heat in a tiny nation that has no football pedigree, little/no grassroots and no stadiums as of right now. Rather than you know, one that is actually set up for it.

I am still shocked that Sepp is hanging on.  But maybe I shouldn't be that surprised.  That must be the slimiest organization ever. 

Chuck Blazer was the whistle-blower until we found out he was as crooked as the rest of them.

Lord Triesman blasting the shady deals of Russia and Qatar, but being secretly recorded by his mistress.

Maybe Jack Warner is the most honest out of them all!

As both an American and a relatively recent Spurs fan (I've been following them for about three seasons now) I'm very happy with the Dempsey move. Although to be honest, I thought the way he was acting at Fulham there was completely classless.

A lot of people jumped on that Spurs bandwagon toward the end of the season, but they couldn't deliver.  Duncan is getting up there - still productive, but he can't carry a team through the playoffs like he used to.

Wait, what's a Totten Ham?

It's kind of like a portable luncheon meat.  It's a long O sound.

That earns you a point.

It begins. I dreamt about my fantasy football team last night. I had Eden Hazard, who scored one and got 4 assists in one game. Awoke deliriously happy, until I remembered I don't have the diminutive Belgian in my side.

However, I do have Ji-Sung Park. So there's that.

Not EPL but soccer related:



That first half was brilliant. That second half, especially after the goal, woof.

I've noticed there are quite a few ex-Spurs around the league, and that was even before Harry's time.  Lots of turnover isn't always good.

I think Harry had Demba Ba (the third member of the currently unstoppable Newbridge AFC frontline) on a trial at West Ham, didn't he? Turns out you can build a nicely-functioning Fantasy Football team out of Harry rejects. *finds a way to transfer in Roman Pavlyuchenko*

Boosh!!  Deuce with the winner.  I'm feeling this makes up for the Carroll-Mendes No-Goal.

Finally Vincent Kompany manages to keep a clean sheet. That massive donkey Andy Carroll put the heart cross-ways on me a couple of times, though. That all my Sunday points are to come from Joe fucking Allen and Yohan Cabaye gives me pause, though.

Yohan Cabaye, I take it all back. You're all right in my book.

Joe Allen, on the other hand, can still fuck off.
