It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Tottenham Hotspur Women play football. Their last two league matches have been postponed due to weather — their tie against Bristol City was canceled due to a waterlogged pitch at The Hive, while this past weekend’s North London Derby was postponed due to Storm Ciara.
But on we go. Today Spurs are back home at The Hive in Edgware to take on Everton, a club that is among their closest rivals in terms of ability in this WSL season. For sure both clubs are competing to be the Best of the Rest — finishing fifth behind the Manchester clubs, Arsenal, and Chelsea would represent a fantastic season. The Toffees ran out to a 3-1 win in the first meeting between the two sides in November, a match that Everton dominated comfortably and that Spurs would like back. Today is a chance to turn the tide, and a win today will put Spurs back in contention for a fifth place finish when all is said and done — Everton are two points ahead of Spurs with a game in hand.

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. Observe Wheaton’s Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- NO SPIDERS!!
- 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, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
Have fun, and COYS!
