You might have heard already, but Spurs have a match today!

Happy match day, Spursland! Yes, I know it's preseason but who cares? Actual football will actually be played tonight and it isn't behind closed doors where we have to trust short Vine videos or grainy shots off of a video camera that was made in 1997.

Everyone should be upset that Spurs don't get the chance to tear apart a Gerrard-Lampard midfield. Also, ex-Tottenham striker Robbie Keane is out of the match, which is disappointing to say the least. Regardless, whoever starts for the MLS won't matter because the boys in Lilywhite are going to thrash them, right? Right.

And now the "news"...
