Sound Offs: Worthington Cup 2

Posted on 18 September 2001  - 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).

Paul Delicata: The League Cup remains a competition that ought to be taken seriously. It is a route into European competition and thus is vital. If European football was not an incentive of winning the cup the importance would diminish massively. I loved every minute of the Cup 99 Final v Leicester, apart from Edinburgh being dismissed and a day out at Cardiff would be fantastic.

Daniel Zeff: To be honest, the Worthington Cup is pointless beyond qualifying for Europe. If we were Liverpool or Man Utd, challenging for the trophies that count, I dare say we wouldn't want to enter it at all. I hope we do win it, get into Europe, and make some money, then maybe Buchler won't mortgage off the ground's name for a few quid. Glenn is our only salvation.

Koonal Shah: Because it is overshadowed by the glorious FA cup, I reckon that the Worthington cup should be scrapped, so that the extra European place could be given to the next placed league side (thus providing more incentives for the likes of ourselves, Newcastle, Villa, etc). However, whilst the Worthington cup still exists, it IS worth winning. It is a trophy, it is a route into Europe, and it is a chance to win something whilst our neighbours Arsenal continue to come second!

Peter Agathangelou: Success breeds confidence and more success. Liverpool showed this by using the Worthington Cup win as a springboard. Also, favourite memory of recent seasons is Iversen's lob in the semi against Wimbledon... Not on the list but, please do away with the Spurs Sing Along before games. Inspurations was far better. Also please include some Ginola clips...
