Fulham vs. Tottenham Hotspur: League Cup game time, live blog, and how to watch online

Spurs start their quest for silverware today at Craven Cottage.

When Spurs finished where they did last season, I was actually secretly relieved because it meant, selfishly, that there wouldn’t be very many mid-week matches to cover, which are a pain if you live GMT-5 and have a day job.

Ah, well. Nevertheless. Tottenham Hotspur travel to Craven Cottage to play Fulham in the illustrious League Cup Second Round. It’s not the best draw in an early cup round, but it could be worse — Fulham have four points from its opening three fixtures, with a win over Everton and a draw at Arsenal to go along with a loss this past weekend to Brentford.

Ange Postecoglou promised rotation for this match, and I expect we’ll get it. The question is how much this will matter in a London Derby. At minimum we’ll probably get good looks at players such as Manor Solomon and Gio Lo Celso and if we’re lucky Richarlison breaks his duck.

As far as viewing — it’s not on TV in the USA or in the UK. It’s also apparently not streamed anywhere in the UK, so it’s BBC Radio 5 Live for our friends across the pond. American viewers can stream it on ESPN+ if you have a subscription (or the Hulu/Disney/ESPN Triple Play package). Despite that, please no links to illegal streams in the comments, they can get us in trouble. That that stuff elsewhere.

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!
