Edit: Tottenham 2-0 Stevenage, final score. You can find full video highlights right here. And if text-based content is more your thing, here are our post-match observations.

Happy Spursday, Spursland! Yeah, there's a game today, not that anyone wants you to know too much about it! I'll never get over the fact that every preseason game isn't very easily accessible. It's 2012. Sort it out. Tottenham Hotspur are playing Stevenage today, and this is your starting lineup.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Cudicini; Naughton, Dawson, Kaboul, Walker; Livermore, Jenas; Lennon, Pienaar, Bentley; Kane

Available substitutes: Friedel, A. Smith, Gallas, Vertonghen, Bassong, Carroll, Huddlestone, Sigurdsson, Falque, Townsend, Coulibaly, Luongo

Obviously, I'm not in the stadium so I won't be able to tell you what this formation actually looks like or who plays where. I'm very surprised that Steven Pienaar, who everyone assumes will be moving to Everton shortly, is playing. Because David Bentley and Aaron Lennon are both playing, he'll be playing in the center.

I'm also a bit surprised that Harry Kane is starting ahead of Cameron Lancaster because he just returned from Under-19 duty, but it's been six days since he's played.

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET, 7:45 p.m. local time from the Lamex Stadium in Stevenage. If you have means by which the game can be viewed, knock yourselves out today.
