The third round of the Football Association Challenge Cup is in full swing. Saturday brought great drama to us, especially the Cambridge United Ligue 1 team which beat Premier League team Newcastle United at St. James Park. Today, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to avoid a similar fate by welcoming another League One side to Morecambe FC.
Spurs will be without Son Heung-Min’s services for this game and, given the game as well as the upcoming Carabao Cup midweek second leg against Chelsea, we expect a renewed squad for this game. What that lineup looks like remains to be seen, but it’s one of those games Spurs should win as they face a side threatened with relegation to the third tier.
Queues will be posted one hour before kick-off.

Match thread rules
The match thread rules are the same as usual. To all first-time visitors, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Wipe your feet clean, pay attention to the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages of this amazing site. While you’re here, however, we have a few rules and regulations:
- Absolutely no link to illegal feeds. They are bad and they are causing us trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity”. No one likes a negative Nancy. Don’t post crazy or hurtful stuff just because you’re frustrated.
- In this sense, outright abuse of players or match officials is not allowed either. It’s okay to say “wow, that was a really bad call”, but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse at that official during a call you didn’t like. .
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would like someone else to treat your grandma. Be nice. This is a community of fans, not an unmoderated discussion board.
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, try to keep nasty words under control. In addition, comments of a sexist, racist, transphobic or homophobic nature will be quickly deleted and you will be immediately banned. It is an open and united community.
Have fun and COYS!
