Third place is on the line as Tottenham take on West Ham. Come chat with CFC during the game.
Happy Spursday, Spursland. Today, Tottenham Hotspur take on West Ham United in a London Derby. Of course, this is not 'THE' London Derby, that comes on Sunday. Spurs have a chance to jump up into third place with a win tonight, thanks to Rafa Benitez and his merry band of derptastic derpers.
Reminder: Off-topic discussion is cool before the game and at halftime. In fact, it's encouraged, but try to keep on topic during the game. If you arrive late, Shift + A will mark all comments as read. Z marks a comment as read and moves you to the next unread comment.

West Ham team - Jaaskelainen, Reid, Nolan, Jarvis, Carroll, O'Brien, Collins, Demel, Diame, J.Cole, O'Neil— West Ham United FC (@whufc_official) February 25, 2013
Johnny Verts at left back is interesting. Benoit Assou-Ekotto is on the bench, so this must be a tactical or fitness-related move, as opposed to one that has to do with an injury. Everything else is as expected. Kickoff is at 8 pm local, 3 pm ET. You can catch the game on Sky Sports 1/Sky Go in the UK and ESPN2/Watch ESPN in the States.
