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).

England's most talented modern-day midfielder unfortunately beset by injury and ill luck. Made his name at Newcastle before big-money move to Spurs and then hit the heights in the 1990 World Cup. Lazio came in for him but after inspiring our run to the 1991 FA Cup Final - including that free-kick - he badly damaged knee ligaments. Still moved to Lazio where he broke his leg and cheek. Returned to Rangers, lit up the Scottish scene and then helped England to semi-finals of Euro 96. Later played for Everton, Middlesbrough and Burnley before a spell in China. Won 57 England caps.
