Who’s ready for some Caribou Cup? Everyone’s favorite Mickey Mouse competition is back, and this time Tottenham Hotspur are hosting West Ham at Wembley Stadium. For the Hammers, every match against Spurs is like a cup final, but this time it has a little bit more gravitas, as the Hammers have had a pretty disastrous start to the Premier League, and Slaven Bilic just might be managing for his job.

Maaaaan, it’s the League Cup. Sure, it’d be nice to win it, but Spurs are in the midst of a brutal stretch of matches, with upcoming games at Old Trafford, vs. Real Madrid, vs. Crystal Palace, and at Arsenal. If we’re going to punt a match, make it this one.
Yes, I’d love to get Slaven Bilic fired with our youth and reserves, but if we derp this one away I can live with it. Get some reserves some good minutes, get this match over with, and move on.
