Happy Spursday, Spursland! The first game of the season is here and I'm super pumped even if I am also super scared. If you live under a rock, Tottenham Hotspur have taken a long trip up north to St. James' Park to take on Newcastle United. They could be one of our direct rivals this season, so this game is kind of important. Here are your lineups.

Newcastle United lineup (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Davide Santon, James Perch, Steven Taylor, Danny Simpson; Jonas Gutierrez, Yoham Cabaye, Cheik Tiote, Hatem Ben Arfa; Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba

Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-2-3-1): Brad Friedel; Benoit Assou-Ekotto, William Gallas, Younes Kaboul, Kyle Walker; Jake Livermore, Sandro; Gareth Bale, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Aaron Lennon; Jermain Defoe

Gallas starts over Jan Verthongen and Michael Dawson? Okay!

Kickoff is at 5:30 p.m. local time, 12:30 p.m. ET. You can catch the game on FOX Soccer in the USA, ESPN in the UK and Sportsnet in Canada.
