Here’s Tottenham Hotspur’s matchday squad for the game against Newcastle (Courtesy of the Guardian’s Scott Murray):

Tottenham Hotspur: Friedel; Walker, Dawson, King, Assou-Ekotto; Kranjcar, Modric, Parker, Bale; Adebayor, Saha.
Subs: Cudicini, Bongani, Nelsen, Rose, Livermore, Lennon, Defoe

Yes, that, in bold, is Stanford-educated New Zealand defender Ryan Nelsen. I wasn’t even aware he’d signed for Spurs. I have no idea why he has barely featured at Blackburn this season, but if he performs at all decently, he’ll make Steve Kean look very stupid indeed.
