Posted on 5 March 2001  - 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).

Just when Gary Doherty thought his week couldn't get any worse&nbsp&#59;- enter Branko Strupar. <P class=MsoNormal>Last weekend Doherty was harshly judged to have fouled Lee Bowyer in the box to hand Leeds United a late first half leveller from the penalty spot and the platform to end our unbeaten home record in the Premiership. <P class=MsoNormal>He then flew out to Dublin where his excellent form since the turn of the year was tipped to be rewarded with another full international cap for the Republic of Ireland in a friendly against Denmark. <P class=MsoNormal>But snow put paid to his hopes as the game was called off because of frozen terraces and he returned having managed very little training and feeling a little frustrated by the whole experience. <P class=MsoNormal>Doherty admitted: "I did nothing all week really. I flew out to Ireland and trained on Sunday, got a little session in on Monday but then it snowed and we couldn't do anything Tuesday or Wednesday. <P class=MsoNormal>"We were hoping to do double sessions but couldn't do anything. <P class=MsoNormal>"You'd be surprised the loss of fitness you can get after a week like that. Rory Delap found it as well. Not doing anything for a couple of days can actually take it out of you when it comes to the Saturday. <P class=MsoNormal>"It's strange and you'd think a couple of days rest would be good. But in the end it was a lot of hassle. <P class=MsoNormal>"When I got back I tried to get two good sessions on Thursday because you can't really do a lot on Friday. We couldn't train with Ireland because of the snow and it was a bit of a farce really. I'll need to get a good week in this week." <P class=MsoNormal><I>Listen to what&nbsp&#59;Gary had to say by clicking <A href="http://www.spurs.co.uk/news/ram/gd010305.ram">here </A></I><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
