The Reds are invading our home! We must protect ourselves from those who would threaten our way of life! In a scene taken straight out of a 1980s Patrick Swayze movie (obviously), Liverpool is at White Hart Lane to battle our beloved Hotspurs, protectors of truth, justice, and the American way... or something. But never mind all that, there's a soccer match to play.

Spurs are lining up with the same personnel as last week against QPR, which, y'know, worked pretty well. Liverpool, perhaps surprisingly, are giving Mario Balotelli his first start in what probably is another version of the midfield diamond.
Some ground rules: ABSOLUTELY NO links to illegal streams. Curtail abuse towards match officials and players, please. Try and reign in outright negativity, because that's no fun and you suck if you're always negative. And finally, any CFCer who goes over to The Liverpool Offside to troll will be perma-banned without mercy. And no, I'm not kidding.
Come On You Spurs!
