I can hardly wait to see how many dives it takes Tottenham to try and squeak by Tranmere...is Divey Alli playing?
I'm just going to focus this on the game tomorrow and not derail this thread! Basically its going to be Tottenham B though as we have a match against Chelsea on Tuesday. I think that Kane won't make the trip at all and maybe Alli is on the bench in case they need the firepower. Aside from that, some of the young guys make an appearance and likely Gazza##### in goal should be enough to handle the Rovers.

Truthfully though, it's these games that make the FA Cup enjoyable. I think it's pretty awesome to have the big clubs play in the smaller stadiums, despite the likely outcome. It's got to be pretty amazing for a young kid to go to the local pitch and see the big names.

Reminder that the game will be on sportsnet world at 12:30

Here is a nice article. Tranmere are still here.

Rovers will make £500,000 for a televised 3rd round game.

I love the BBC live text commentary

Halfway through the first half, still 0-0.

Tranmere 0-0 Tottenham

Tranmere have made two passes. Spurs have made 31.

League Two pitches aren't the battlegrounds they used to be but the Prenton Park surface is definitely a touch more bobbly than Spurs are used to. Spurs do win a corner early on here though.

I just love the British commentators in general. “I don’t want to be unkind, but it looks like the Tranmere captain is on the same diet as me!”

people saythat when they first saw him, they thought he was the mascot.

Rovers 0-1 Spurs at the half.

40th minute scorcher into the top corner by Aurier.

Spurs are up 6-0 and bring on Harry Kane.

That's just mean.

I really don’t know why they put Kane out there. At least no one was injured, because that would have been a brutal result to that decision.

For everyone jumping off the bandwagon now, there's a little club you can actually see live coming in April...

It would probably be cheaper to fly to Liverpool and watch Tranmere.

I figured I would take you to a game and for a change we could support the same team!

Being an Englishman, this reference has gone completely over my head...

Canadian Premier League?

Love that this thread is still going even it took a shellacking by Spurs to resurrect it.

Tranmere actually are the form team in the entire English football league right now. They are currently 5th in league 2, sitting in a playoff place.

Still love this team....

Hope you’re all doing well. (Locke, Girly and all!)
