Jude Law at the Lodge

Actor and huge Spurs fan Jude Law paid a visit to Spurs Lodge on Thursday.

Famed for his roles in The Talented Mr Ripley, Enemy At The Gates, Road To Perdition, Cold Mountain and, more recently, playing Dr Watson in Guy Ritchie's remake of Sherlock Holmes, Jude met boss Harry Redknapp, skipper Ledley King and the rest of the lads before watching training as the lads prepare to meet Wolves on Saturday.

Twice nominated for an Oscar (The Talented Mr Ripley, Cold Mountain) and a BAFTA winner for his role of Dickie Greenleaf in The Talented Mr Ripley, Jude's love of Spurs came via his grandfather, Eric Law, and he's been a regular at the Lane since his first game all the way back in 1981.

He's seen some ups and downs in that time but like every Spurs fan, Jude is relishing every moment of our involvement in the Champions League this season.

"It's a tournament everyone loves to watch but now we're in there, it's all the little accessories - the ball, the programme, the music - that make it so special," said Jude, who was nominated for the prestigious Olivier and Tony Awards for his performance in the lead role of Shakespeare's Hamlet in the West End and on Broadway earlier this year.

"It's the most exciting tournament in the world and we deserve to be in there.

"And we look confident, calm and I absolutely believe, on our day, we're capable of beating anyone.

"It's going to be a really exciting adventure and I really believe we're going to have a really good run in it."

Look out for more from Jude in our official matchday programme and next month's Hotspur magazine...
