Seattle Sounders vs Tottenham Hotspur: Starting Lineups, TV Times and Open Thread

Tottenham Hotspur kicks off its preseason tour of the United States this afternoon with a friendly against Seattle Sounders in front of what is expected to be a huge crowd.

On Monday, the Sounders announced that they had sold over 52,000 tickets for the game. And it’s possible that it may end up being a 64,000 sell-out.

For Tottenham, this will be a good test to see how Mauricio Pochettino’s players adapt to his new system of play.
