HARRY REDKNAPP was in great form answering the latest batch of questions for his popular 'View from...' feature in hotspur magazine

Posted on 10 September 2009  - 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).

Highlights included...




Question: If all the strikers are on form, how will you decide who to leave out?
Harry: "I think I'll throw a dart at the dartboard..."




Question: Is it true you bought your local Italian restaurant?
Harry: "Yes - it wasn't the cleverest thing I've ever done..."




He then went on to say that on a couple of days break in the recent international break, he stepped into a restaurant in Spain and...'we'd only been in there a couple of minutes, not that many people in there when who walks in? Alex McLeish! He came in with his family and sat at the table next to us. Three days earlier we'd been sitting next to each other on the bench at White Hart Lane!"




Look out for the feature in full in October's hotspur, out at the end of the month.




NIKO KRANJCAR seems like a top bloke having met him for the first time at the Lodge on Thursday.




Perhaps it's because Xtra couldn't quite bring itself to mention what had happened at Wembley the night before...




Anyway, here he is pictured in training today.

THE AWARD for best contributed photograph to Xtra so far - and feel free to send your own - goes to the Edwards family.




Sent in by Bob Edwards, the picture shows brothers Billy, Jack and Alfie Edwards with their magnificent creation that took two hours to complete in a day out at Frinton-on-Sea.




Bob told us that there were no tide problems to ruin the lads' work but a family of West Ham fans were ready to pounce.




"We were all sharing good-natured banter - the usual stuff - but the boys were champing at the bit to flatten it, so the minute we left they probably did," he said.




Luckily, thanks to Bob, we've photographic proof.




As we said, feel free to send in your own photographs - any photograph will be considered (as long as it's Spurs related!) - email in a jpeg format byCLICKING HERE...

POSSIBLE conversations at Spurs Lodge.




Wilson: What happened with that penalty you won for Mexico that ended up beating my Honduras side in our World Cup qualifier on Wednesday?




Gio: Er, well, Wilson, it was like this...




Sure there were no hard feelings!
