Cheik Tiote is Happy in Black and White Stripes

In a feature that deserves more than just a line in our Morning Links post, Louise Taylor of The Guardian profiles Cheik Tiote.

Tiote, who is quickly becoming a fan favorite on Tyneside, speaks about the differences between Dutch and English football, his manager, and his inspiration and heroes. Taylor also interviews Chris Hughton and Steve McLaren, Tiote's old manager at FC Twente.

This is definitely worth a read, so if you're like me and you're falling in love with Tiote's style of play (and if you're not, get with the program!), make sure you check it out.
