Ryan Nelsen went to Tottenham and it came as a shock to me, Ryan has been at the club almost as long asI have and I still remember the first training he had with us. We played on the same team and he did a really good impression, and on his debut came away against Portsmouth in the same game that I scored my first goal in the Premier League. Ryan is a really good friend and I will miss him both as a person and player. Had it been up to me Ryan would have stayed here with us, but it’s not and all I can do isto wish him the best of luck at Tottenham. I took this picture at the reserve game today and shows Ryan score.

Tomorrow it’s all set for a new game againt Newcastle, and it is the fourth game against them this season. We played well against them when we knocked them out of the Cup at Ewood Park. I hope we can play yet another a good game, and beat them in the league as well.
