It’s been an eventful international break for Tottenham Hotspur Women. After starting off the season with just three points and no wins, Tottenham fired co-managers Karen Hills and Juan Amoros — with Hills having led Spurs for a decade and shepherding them through three promotions to the top flight of English women’s football — and brought in England assistant Rehanne Skinner.
It is what Spurs hopes is the first step in revitalizing Tottenham and turning them into a club that can compete at the top of the table. But there’s much more work to be done, and it starts today at The Hive with a WSL match against Brighton & Hove Albion. This is also the first match since March that will have fans in attendance at the Hive. Hopefully they make a lot of noise.
Alex Morgan is back with the squad after a solid 45 minutes with the USA Women’s National Team, her first USA action since the World Cup final. Will she get the start under Skinner? Will Spurs look different than they did under Hills & Amoros? We’ll find out.
@rehanne_skinner has named her first starting XI! #THWFC: Spencer, Zadorsky, Green (c), Harrop, Filbey, Percival, A.Morgan, Addison, Kennedy, Ayane, Neville. #SpurHerOn ⚪ #COYS pic.twitter.com/15B68m0Qs9— Tottenham Hotspur Women (@SpursWomen) December 6, 2020

Match thread rules
The match thread rules are the same as 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. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. 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 also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” 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. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, transphobic,
- or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
Have fun, and COYS!
