Breaking Down Tottenham Hotspur's Entire Roster, Looking At Roster Rules

You'll get nothing but a new central midfielder and like it!
You'll get nothing but a new central midfielder and like it!

All of the sales and loans in and out have caused some confusion for everyone heading into September, along with the new roster rules. As most of you know, the Premier League now has a 25-man roster limit. Players 21 or younger at the start of the season do not have to be registered, while eight of your players must be home grown in England if you opt to use all 25 roster places.

Here is the entire Tottenham Hotspur roster after all of yesterday's dealings.

Goalkeepers (3)

Brad Friedel

Heurelho Gomes

Carlo Cudicini

Left Backs (1)

Benoit Assou-Ekotto

Right Backs (1)

Vedran Corluka

Central Defenders (5)

Michael Dawson (HG)

Ledley King (HG)

William Gallas

Younes Kaboul

Sebastien Bassong

Defensive Midfielders (2)


Tom Huddlestone (HG)

Central Midfielders (3)

Luka Modric

Scott Parker (HG)

Jake Livermore (HG)

Left Wingers (2)

Gareth Bale (HG)

Steven Pienaar

Right Wingers (1)

Aaron Lennon (HG)

Attacking Midfielders (3)

Rafael van der Vaart

Niko Kranjcar

Giovani dos Santos

Strikers (3)

Emmanuel Adebayor

Jermain Defoe (HG)

Roman Pavlyuchenko

Total: 24

Home grown in England: 8

We can loan in anyone or buy anyone in January! Yaaaay!

"First Team" or Carling Cup/Europa League players who do not count against roster limits

DF Kyle Walker

MF Andros Townsend

MF Danny Rose

MF Iago Falque Silva

FW Harry Kane

Walker and Rose will all count as senior players next season and need to be registered. This means that Livermore and Rose are going to have to show a lot in their limited opportunities this season to avoid being sold this summer or loaned out next season. Iago Falque Silva will also have to be registered next season, should we choose to purchase him. Townsend has one year remaining after this year where he will count as a U-21. Harry Kane can be unregistered for quite a while.

(Other useful things about doing this post - showing me the three names I need to fix in the tagger!)

So, that's your roster. At least until January, unless we bring in someone on loan between now and October. Are you satisfied with it?

Edit: I had errors. I fixed them. Get over it.
