Happy Sunday morning, Tottenham fans! Spurs are getting set to take on Newcastle United at White Hart Lane in a match with historic importance: Tottenham will recognize their legendary manager Bill Nicholson before this match, ten years after he passed away in 2004.
Spurs have had a pretty tough schedule in the opening weeks of the season, but Toon are, well, struggling. A win puts Spurs in a four-team tie for fifth place, and within striking distance of the top four. A loss... well, let's not think about a loss.

So what exactly does Harry Kane need to do to get a start in the English Premier League? Apparently more than "score a hat trick, play in goal, and adopt two gorgeous puppies." FFS LEVY.
How to Watch:
For our American viewers, the game will be carried on on NBC Sports Network and online at NBCS Live Extra. My sources say that this match is not televised in the UK (BBC Five Live Radio only) but I'm not sure I believe it. ENGLANDERS: post TV info in the comments. Aussies can find it on Fox Sports 2 Australia, and Canadians on TSN2.
