Oh, yeah, in case you haven't heard, next week is the Barclays New York Cup, because if we can't travel across the Atlantic to win some rather meaningless silverware, why not win some rather meaningless silverware in our own backyard!

Anyway, Tottenham Hotspur is the other team in all this, and they've released their roster for the game. I'm no Spurs fan, but it seems they're coming with a pretty good mix of players.

From the official site...

Goalkeepers: Jordan Archer, Carlo Cudicini, Brad Friedel, Heurelho Gomes

Defenders: Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Sebastien Bassong, Michael Dawson, William Gallas, Younes Kaboul, Kyle Naughton, Adam Smith, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker

Midfielders: Gareth Bale, David Bentley, Tom Carroll, Tom Huddlestone, Jermaine Jenas, Aaron Lennon, Jake Livermore, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Andros Townsend, Rafael van der Vaart

Forward: Harry Kane

Also, a cool thing, sort of in keeping with Chris Heck's promise that the friendly was a gift for the fans, the Red Bulls are going to sport numbers with the names of season ticket holders on them. Plus, two fans, picked by contest, will get to do the radio broadcast and supporters group members and season ticket holders will "be taking part in pre and post match ceremonies, including the medal presentation following the match."
