RIP San Jose

We've formed an extensive partnership with the MLS soccer team, the San Jose Earthquakes. This is an extract from the official site announcement:

The agreement will focus on football and commercial development that will see the implementation of a best practice exchange programme, with the objective of creating a lasting bond between the two clubs.

Tottenham Hotspur will invest time and resources into the development of San Jose Earthquakes on and off the pitch as well as working across charity and community based initiatives.

Invest time and resource into the development of San Jose? How about spending some time and resource in Tottenham fucking Hotspur? You know, bottom of the Premiership Tottenham. The announcement gets funnier, if you hadn't guessed already.

Our aim is to support the development of MLS by using our wealth of experience in the game on a number of levels. Football development will certainly be an integral part of the partnership, but other areas of our infrastructure will be beneficial models such as the work we do in the community with the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

Ok, let me ask the question. What wealth and experience? Wealth, sure. All the money we make accepting bids for our top players. But experience? On a number of levels? Tapping up managers? Forcing clubs to make donations to the Tottenham foundation? Introducing a DoF system that undermines the coach?

Fuck me, are San Jose any good, because the shit is about to hit the fan for them?
