£75k Bonus Spices Up Spurs’ FA Cup Clash
By Harry Hotspur -

Merseyside outfit Marine were drawn to play Tottenham in the third round of the FA Cup, and it has now emerged that the game at Rossett Park will be broadcast by the BBC, which will net the home side a handy £75,000 cash boost. A tidy sum for a club at that level.

According to the Daily Mail, fans are in for treat with this year’s competition, as every single one of the 32 matches will be shown live.

One running joke in football is referring to small status sides as ‘pub-sides’. In this instance life will imitate art, as Marine are actually named after a local pub.

The thought of Spurs in the cup normally recall fond memories of yesteryear, as we’ve not competed effectively in the competition in years. At least under José Mourinho, there exists a desire to win every match in every competition. Loose talk about Tottenham doing the double this season? It started here, folks!

I thought they were going to have to play at an alternative ground if they wanted 2000 supporters to attend due to social distancing,Anfield has been mooted? Anfield would suit our players better due to the playing surface.

It has been suggested that the game may be moved to Anfield, should Marine not be able to make their own ground Covid-19 secure.

Chairman Paul Leary has insisted that no discussions over any temporary move have taken place, however.

He believes his club are ready to host Tottenham and that they are looking forward to welcoming back a limited number of supporters.

‘We’ve not been in discussions to play at Anfield and all of the parties that have been involved in discussions have been focused on making sure we make the ground COVID secure,’ Leary said.

‘I read something that said we were unable to do this which isn’t true. We remain positive that the game will be held here at Marine and that is what we are working towards.’
