Happy Spursday, Spursland. Today Tottenham Hotspur travel away to Stevenage in the FA Cup. As we've noted a bajillion times, but the whiny opposing fans of the internet don't seem to get, we know very little about Stevenage other than the fact that their team is in the ascendancy and that their manager is Gary Smith, formerly of the Colorado Rapids. We're not big Gary Smith fans. Here's the Spurs starting XI.
I'm guessing that this formation features Walker in midfield, because if it doesn't and it's a 3-5-2 of some sort, that would make one of Bale or Rose a central midfielder. Whether this is a 4-4-2 with Walker in midfield or a 3-5-2 with Bale or Rose in the center, this should be interesting.
If you have the subs and the Stevenage team, please post them in the comments. The game kicks off at 9:00 a.m. ET, 2 p.m. local time. You can catch it on either FOX Soccer Channel or FOX Deportes in the USA, on Sportsnet World in Canada and on ITV 1 in the UK.
