Yesterday, Monday, December 16, there were two prominent stories circulating throughout the printed press and online football media: the draw for the first knockout round in the Champions League and how it affects Premier League representatives; and the departure of Andre Villas-Boas from Tottenham Hotspur.
For some Spurs fans, the two stories combined to mark a perfect start to the week. Villas-Boas polarised Tottenham support.
Some believed he required more time so that the player influx from the summer had time to settle and he could aim to improve upon his - and the Lilywhites' - fifth-place finish in the division last season.
Others claimed that after defeats to Arsenal and heavy losses to West Ham United, Manchester City and Liverpool, the Portuguese had already been suffered one blemish too many in the course of a domestic season.
What really made their fanbase's day, though, was not any in-house news to do with White Hart Lane but more to do with what was happening across North London, as local rivals Arsenal were drawn into a tough Champions League two-legged bout with the team who knocked them out last season; Bayern Munich.
The majority of those from N17 believe this spells elimination for the Gunners, that the club are 'screwed' and that, considering Arsene Wenger's run of fixtures in February/March, their season will likely be over due to a Champions League exit and Premier League pain.
See, Spurs are a bigger, more important club than Arsenal. We have the headlines! Never mind your CL draw agains Bayern Munich #COYS— Jamie (@jaybag123) December 16, 2013
