Ben's food for thought

Posted on 14 January 2003  - 12:00

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 admitted it was a shame for Ben Thatcher to miss Sunday's win against Everton after a bout of food poisoning.

The boss described the defender as one of few plus points from our FA Cup nightmare at Southampton the week before.

'Thatch' was a late withdrawal from Sunday's plans after suffering on Saturday night.

Glenn revealed: "Ben unfortunately was touch and go but had a bit of food poisoining on Saturday night.

"He couldn't eat, had a little food on Sunday but in the end I had to make a tough decision because he did well for us at Southampton, he was one of our brighter sparks in that game.

"But Gary Doherty came in, he's been out a long time and stuck at it and did well for us in the end. Ben understood the decision but it was a shame for him."
