Glenn: Get behind us

Posted on 15 November 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).

Glenn Hoddle has urged fans to get behind the team on Saturday and 'rise above' the Sol Campbell issue that has dominated the build up to the first derby of the season.

Tensions are high following Campbell's switch across north London and Saturday represents the first time he has been back at the Lane in the red and white of Arsenal.

Pressed by the massed media on Campbell throughout today's press conference, boss Glenn threw down the gauntlet to the fans.

"Can we rise above what has been said this week? I challenge them," he declared.

"I would rather them be behind our team and give us the support they've given us so far this season. Why change now?

"This season our fans have been fantastic. There have been periods in games when

we've not been doing too well and they've turned it around for us.

"I don't want them to have one eye on the front door and the thieves to come in at the back door and nick the three points. I want them to get behind out team.

"I want them to lift the roof off for 90 minutes.

"Our incentive, surely, as supporters, certainly everyone in this club, is if we get the three points on Saturday we go above Arsenal.

"That is more of an incentive than Sol. If they are true Spurs supporters that has to be the incentive.

"All I'd say get is behind us and give us the support you've given us so far this season."
