We’re all probably sick of hearing that every match is a “must win” from here on out, but it’s the truth: Tottenham Hotspur’s quest for Champions League football is pretty simple. While it’s foolish to expect perfection, especially with Liverpool still on the fixture list, if Spurs win out that last spot is theirs! Heck, they might even jump Chelsea who look like a disaster right now.
But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves given the roller coaster this team has put us all through. Aston Villa are no pushover, and before their 2-1 defeat at the hands of West Ham, they had rattled off three straight wins and outscoring their opponents 9-0 in the process. It should be an entertaining match, to say the least. Let’s get all three points and keep the pressure on the red side of north London, shall we?
Lineups will be posted one hour prior to kickoff.

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!
