    Thomas Vermaelen in a Barcelona jersey = gallons of tears for me. I mean, it’s a good move for his career, but for me? Sadness and woe.

    one thing is that all though yedlin is in contract with tottenham, its delayed, he wont be playing them until summer, maybe not until the begining of the 2015/16 season.
