LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. We're up Wearside way for a match against Sunderland, and we really, really, really need a win. We're going up against the club at the bottom of the table, but this is a team with a new manager and a new belief, and Jozy Altidore. JOZY. #jozy. So we're gonna win this one, right? Right?
This is your match thread and OMG LOOK AT THIS:

Uh, whoa. This is not the lineup you were looking for. Capoue in the center of defense? Demblinho double-pivot? Defoe up top? What is even football? Somebody hold me.
We're Spurs fans, but please reign in the relentless knee-jerking and negativity. No vitriol directed at players or referees. Be nice to each other. Use of the c-word or t-word is an automatic time-out. Let's keep it clean and above the belt, people. Now KITH. And COME ON YOU SPURS.
