Son played in the 1st WC qualifier win vs. Turkmenistan (2-0). A disappointing and lackluster effort from the squad (Turkmenistan is ranked #135 in the world) but Son escaped without any injuries.

Put me in the pro-banter camp. What are we really going to talk about if we can't go into each others threads and insinuate that Spurs have blown their chance at winning anything meaningful and will soon descend back into mediocrity, that Arsenal have become a second tier club led by the Spanish Brendan Rodgers, that United have experienced the most astounding fall from grace short of AC Milan in football history, that Liverpool still haven't won the league in 30 years, that Chelsea are nothing more than the unity of a famously racist fanbase and a bunch of Russian oil money, and that everything City accomplishes will always be accompanied by a massive asterisk because they're playing on highly unethical cheat mode, funding their pretty football with the blood of imported slave labor and the tears of human rights activists?
...and that Everton will finish seventh again.

This is excellent but if you were going for peak banter you, ahem, slipped up.

Nothing but good things to say about today's game. Spurs were the better side from the start and dominated the game, earning their most convincing result of the season. A few times a year, Son goes off and basically wins a game by himself and we were treated to that today. Aurier looked good in his first appearance of the season and Lamela continues his good form. Still waiting on seeing DESK together all at once, but at least today we did see the Belgians paired up once again.

It has been an odd first five games, the draw against City followed up by the crushing loss to Newcastle and then a draw with Arsenal, and then the international break. Today was a sign of how good things can be when this team plays up to its potential, and with Olympiacos in the UCL this week followed by league games against Leicester, Southampton, Brighton and Watford, a chance to go on a bit of a winning streak is in play.
