Before I say anything about the game: Screw you Puma. Congrats on creating the worst away kit the world has ever seen. You're really that pissed that we signed with Under Armour? Whoever designed our away shirt should go take a bath with a toaster. Anyway, Tottenham Hotspur has a preseason match against Brighton and Hove Albion today in their beautiful new stadium, and this is your live match thread.

We have a complete firstish team starting the match, but Tom Huddlestone is nowhere to be found. Perhaps he picked up a slight knock in training and it's so not a big deal that the team didn't report it? In any event, he's the only player I am surprised to not see on the bench or in the starting XI. Harry Kane, who came off the bench against Leyton Orient yesterday, made the trip down to Brighton last night and is also on the bench. Here's your lineup.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup: Friedel; Corluka, Dawson, Kaboul, Assou-Ekotto; Lennon, Jenas, Livermore, Bale; Van der Vaart, Pavlyuchenko    

Substitutes: Gomes, Carroll, Kane, Townsend, Defoe

Who else is reading waaaaay too much into the fact that Brad Friedel is starting in goal over Gomes? The match kicks off at 10 am ET, 3 pm BST and cannot be seen on the real TV, but I'm sure the commentariat can hook you up with a place to watch the game in the comments. COYS!
