A little luck

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn Hoddle is certainly hoping for a little more luck on the injury front next season.

The boss lost the services of Stephen Carr all season while Stephen Clemence, Gary Doherty, Goran Bunjevcevic, Steffen Freund and Steffen Iversen all suffered long-term injuries.

It was frustrating for Glenn after work on injury prevention proved a success - all of the above were crocked in match action.

Glenn pondered: "They haven't been injuries from training or muscle tears, there are a lot of good things, prevention, that have gone in.

"Goran fractured his cheekbone, Carry never got back from an original injury, Doc broke his leg, Steffen Iversen was injured after 10 seconds playing for Norway and missed three-quarters of the season.

"It was one after the other and that's not even half the list.

"That is out of the coaches' hands, the physios' hands and to a certain extent the players' hands.

"We've just got to hope for better luck next year. Last season would have been better and next season can be better with what we've added already."
