*Goran's winter call

Posted on 3 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).

Goran Bunjevcevic is nearly through his first experience of the English game's punishing festive schedule and suggests that a short break would not be a bad idea.

Our programme took us to Manchester City the day before Christmas Eve, a Boxing Day clash with Charlton Athletic followed by trips to Newcastle United and Southampton. The relentless run of games concludes with a return to Southampton on Saturday in the FA Cup.

It adds up to five games in 12 days and often, given the time of year, played on heavy energy-sapping playing surfaces.

Goran, who missed out on last season's festive run through injury, points out that our Christmas-New Year challenge was slightly tougher due to four games being away from home.

"It's very hard, especially for us as we play four away games over the Christmas period," said the versatile defender.

"It is very, very hard for the players. I like to play football but playing every three days is really hard for everyone.

"I'm not used to it. Even the players from England want to stop and have a little break over the Christmas period.

"I think the people who are leading this league will discuss it because it is really hard.

"It is not really a case of the conditions - whether we are going to play or not because of the weather. Taking a break would be a step forward for the league."
