Play Your Cards Right - Anthony Gardner

Posted on 14 August 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).

To offer more variety than the original 'Up Close & Personal' section, we've devised a new item in order to offer an insight into the personal tastes of the players. A pack of cards has been customised with a question on each and Anthony Gardmer is the next up to pick ten cards to determine his questions...

PLAY YOUR CARDS RIGHT: ANTHONY GARDNER

Do you prefer boxers or pants?
Boxers.

Who is the worst dresser at the club?
It was Steffen Iversen, good luck to him by the way. It has to be Goran. It wasn't the best before, but it has improved, I'll give him that.

What would you rather be, a footballer or film star?
Film star. I suppose film stars would say they'd rather be sport stars.

We had a little night out in South Africa after the last game.

A pair of trainers from America.

High Dior by Christian Dior.

What would you wear to a fancy dress party?
I'd go with a big afro, gold medallion chain, open shirt, flares - 1970s pimp style.

When was the last time you were nervous?
Before our last game - I'm always nervous before every game.

How did you become a pro?
I saw John Barnes play for Liverpool when I was eight and wanted to be a footballer. I started playing when I was nine, payed Sunday football, got spotted by Port Vale, played in the youth team, made my debut and then signed for Spurs aged 19.
