Posted on 8 August 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 expressed his concern over pre-season injury worries Tim Sherwood, Stephen Carr and Teddy Sheringham.<P class=MsoNormal>All three are out of Bill Nicholson&rsquo&#59;s Testimonial against Fiorentina tonight and while Tim&rsquo&#59;s ankle knock is not deemed a serious problem, there are question marks over whether or not Teddy and Steve will make the start of the season.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;There is a concern there, without a doubt,&rdquo&#59; admitted Glenn. &ldquo&#59;Tim should settle down, Carry is one we&rsquo&#59;ve got to keep an eye on and he&rsquo&#59;s having X-rays and Teddy&rsquo&#59;s is an Achilles that needs good man-management to make sure it doesn&rsquo&#59;t become a long-term thing.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;There is a possibility that Teddy could be out for the next couple of games. Whether or not he&rsquo&#59;s ready for the start of the season we&rsquo&#59;ll have to wait and see.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Carry&rsquo&#59;s got a knee problem that he&rsquo&#59;s had for a long, long time and hasn&rsquo&#59;t gone away over the summer. We have to give him some rest. They all need treatment and rest.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Meanwhile, Glenn was pleased enough with the our performance against Luton Town on Tuesday night &mdash&#59; a late Sergei Rebrov penalty salvaged a 1-1 draw.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It was good for us,&rdquo&#59; he insisted. &ldquo&#59;We have a big game at home on Wednesday night against Fiorentina so this was always going to be a difficult one for us.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It was a chance to look at the squad players, a few of the lads who have been playing for the reserves when we&rsquo&#59;ve been playing. I haven&rsquo&#59;t had a chance to cast my eye over them.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;ve played better this pre-season but there were some good things to come out of it and some things we need to improve on.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
