Well this doesn't need to be expansive, does it? Tottenham Hotspur and Heart of Midloathian play today in what is technically a UEFA Europa League playoff round fixture. Thanks to Spurs' 5-0 win away at Tynecastle last week, this has more or less become a semi-competitive glorified friendly. No disrespect to Hearts, who i'm sure will play a competitive side and put out a fight, but there's no chance that they're going to overturn that 5-0 score.
We all know what we want to see tonight. A random Sebastian Bassong run-out just in case he just needs a little confidence boost and he's not actually appalling. Another game for Jake Livermore to add to his experience. The blazing Andros Townsend. And last, but certainly not least, HURRICAAAAAANE...HAAAAAAAAARRYYYYYYYYYY...KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE.
(Yep, I just hired Bruce Buffer.)
This game doesn't need a preview. I'm not going into matchups and tactics. It's totally pointless. Let's just have some fun. We'll have some serious analysis for the Manchester City game, but for this? Psh.
HEARTS ARE A BIG TEAM.
