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).

Martin Jol faces an anxious wait for medical reports this morning on the extent of Erik Edman's injury.


Head Coach Martin revealed that an Achilles injury forced the Swedish full-back off at half-time in last night's 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa.


"Yes, it is an Achilles problem but I can't tell you much more until the morning," said Martin at Villa Park.


"But at least Thimothee Atouba showed me that he could play at left-back."


Thimothee - his first start since a knee injury last month - reverted back to the position following Erik's injury with Reto Ziegler coming on at half-time and playing left midfield.
