Happy Saturday, Spurs fans! Tottenham trek to the West Midlands to take on West Bromwich Albion as EPL action kicks back into high gear. Spurs are coming off a hard fought draw (but really, win) against Sheffield United in the Capital One Cup, and now they're up against a tough Tony Pulis-led Baggies team that will not roll over at home. Will it be another post-Cup match hangover, or will Spurs find a way to put everything together on the road?
Huh. Not quite sure what to make of this lineup. Rose starting at left back is... interesting. A pivot of Dembele and Mason is... interesting. Paulinho starting at #10 is... very interesting, considering his *cough* performance *cough* against Sheffield. I'm also told this is his first Premier League start? That can't be right. I've got a bad feeling about this.
How to Watch:
Match time: 3 p.m. (U.K.), 10 am (USA ET)
Venue: The Hawthornes, West Bromwich, England
TV: This being a regular run-of-the-mill Premier League match, Americans can catch it on NBC Premier League Extra Time (i.e. the "extra channels"). If you're out and about you can also stream the match live on NBC Sports Live Extra, depending on your cable package.
If you're in the UK, you're out of luck because it's apparently not televised today. England, man. What's up with that? Willman and his Canadian brethren can find the match on Sportsnet World, and the Aussie contingent can find it on Fox Sports 3 Australia. If you're in Macedonia, find it on SportKlub 5 Serbia. Other countries can find your local TV listings here.
Yes, we are aware of such things called "illegal streams." No, we're not going to help you find any, sorry. No, you can't talk about them in the comments, either.
Match thread rules:
The match thread rules are the same always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We're glad you're here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you're here, though, we have a few rules and regulations.
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They're bad and they get us in trouble.
- We have rules against "relentless negativity." Nobody likes a Negative Nancy, even when we're losing to West Brom. Don't knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you're frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is verboten. It's fine to say "wow, that's a bad call, match official," but it's NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton's Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don't have a rule against profanity, any language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you may lose posting privileges. This is an open, supportive community.
