Hoddle happy

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 was happy that the team emerged with a victory from a tough work-out against Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

Watford, only a week away from beginning their season proper, were, as you would expect, pretty much match sharp and provided a stern test for a patched up Spurs side.

The team travel to Holland today to take on Feyenoord so the first team playing squad was roughly split down the middle and very few players will feature in both games.

Two exceptions are Christian Ziege and Teddy Sheringham, who came on for half and hour and lifted the quality level of a sometimes scruffy game.

"We've got Feyenoord on Sunday, have got a couple of lads on trial and it was a good opportunity to have a look at them.

"Players are coming back from World Cup duty, a bit of injury and trying to get 90 minutes under their belts. It was a good work out all in all.

"They are starting next week, have other things on their mind and have got to be up to that tempo. We know that, we're well into our pre-season and our lads are expecting these games to be competitive up to a point."

Glenn was happy to get Teddy and Christian back into action and aims to have them ready for full games by the time of our pre-season climax against Celtic and Lazio.

"It was all about getting them 25 minutes, half an hour and the same will happen in Holland. They won't play the full game but will probably start and we'll look to see and gage how they are. What we don't want is another injury.

"We'll get them ready for Celtic and Lazio.

"They were very pleasing to the eye and it shows the quality they have got."
