Good Tuesday morning friends. If you live in London it is apparently free TV Tuesday if the last few days have been any indication. So do yourself a favor and stay the hell inside. You can go out for tacos tomorrow. And yes I am the kind of guy who would consider braving a riot for tacos. Not an English riot though, just an average American one. English rioting is on another level.
And now the "news"
Oh praise the lord there is a God. While what sure feels like every other writer here, thought that bringing in another class player at a position where we are loaded wasn't necessarily a bad idea, I though this was a ridiculous idea. Ruiz would have cost a ton, and Spurs aren't exactly free spenders. There is a limited amount of money to be spent, it should be spent on positions we don't have several world class players already. Editor's note: Ruiz is a striker, what are you on about?
Excuse me while I do a spit take. Does Dan Levy really expect anyone who isn't a Russian oil baron going to even entertain thoughts of that?
A player by player breakdown of the squad, it's awesome.
A nice thing to help out with.
What's happening around SB Nation after the jump
No funny quips on this subject. All I will say is that it is the right call to put football second to things that actually matter. To our London and Birmingham readers and community members, please stay safe.
I'm not sure this is a wise move for a team that is hundreds of millions of euros in debt. And yes that sentence was just a way for me to bring up how much Real Madrid are in debt.
Good...GOOOOOOD. He is the definition of too good for that team.
