“It’s absurd, the first time I’ve ever had a 12:30 game where I can just get out of bed!”….”I hope our fans wake up well,” Luton Town manager said during the game
Psychological warfare. Luton Town manager Rob Edwards has expressed his “bewilderment” at the time of his side’s English Premier League (EPL) eighth-round clash with Tottenham Hotspur.
Luton Town and Tottenham will kick off at 8:30 p.m. ET on July 7. That’s 12:30 p.m. local time in England. As Edwards said, it’s a strange time. It’s a midday game. The venue is Kenilworth Road Stadium, home of Luton Town.메이저사이트
Spurs sit in second place with five wins, two draws, and no losses, while promoted Luton Town are 17th in the league with one win, one draw, and five losses. Both teams need a win to move up and turn things around.
Speaking ahead of the game, Edwards said: “I’ve never played a game like this before, starting at 12:30. I don’t know how everyone will react. Some people might be just getting out of bed. I hope our fans wake up well,” he said.
The time of the match is already set. It can’t be changed. Edwards is determined to push forward to win. For Edwards, Luton Town’s biggest strength is the passionate support of their home fans.
“I think our home fans can be the difference in the game today,” he said. Our fans will shake Tottenham. Our fans will give Tottenham our power. There’s a power that’s hard to describe, and they’re going to experience a lot of noise. They are right behind us. We will find a way in front of them and we are confident,” he emphasized.
“We’ve already played against good teams, and we’ve shown that we can pack a punch against good opponents. We’re playing top players again. We have to handle the pressure. We’re going to enjoy it.”
