Sound Offs: Worthington Cup 4

Posted on 26 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).

<B>Michelle Taylor:</B> It would be nice to see them win a cup as the last time was 1999 when we won the Worthington Cup. It would be nice for Glenn Hoddle's men.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><B>Ian Norsworthy: </B>We can win the Worthington Cup. Simple as that. We should take it seriously, but also keep up the league campaign. An issue I MUST mention, PLEASE PLEASE KEEP Sergei Rebrov, recent reports of a move are worrying me.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><B>Andy Hills:</B> I think that we can win the Worthington Cup, but for our team to stand above the others in the tournament surely we will need to play Sergei Rebrov, If Glenn doesn&rsquo&#59;t start to play him soon he will leave which will be a great disappointment, especially if he isn&rsquo&#59;t even given a chance.</SPAN> <P><STRONG>John Smithers:</STRONG> Win any cup. League or FA - next year it will be the UEFA!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>Nicholas Perrot:</STRONG> I Firmly believe the Worthington Cup is a competition as important as any others. It just lacks the bit of magic that makes the FA Cup. But at least, it allows to reach European Football and we all know how much Spurs would need that. Remember how delighted we were when Neilsen scored the winning goal against Leicester in the 99 Final. I hope Spurs will take this cup seriously and bring it back to WHL.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>Gina Gatland:</STRONG> After following Spurs for over 40 years I am glad to see us win any cup, especially when it gets us into Europe.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>John Effle:</STRONG> With Glenn and Teddy spurs can start to win things.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>Shane Wyatt:</STRONG> Of course a place in Europe next season is something we all want and some of us expect and, well if we have to win the Worthington Cup to get there, then lets go for it. If it&rsquo&#59;s good enough for a club like Liverpool then I&rsquo&#59;ll take it. Talking like this is all good but I think we've got just as good chance in the FA Cup. We're a good cup team and now we have the quality to push through those final rounds. Ziege is class, and so is the Welsh wizard! "Davies". I&rsquo&#59;m sorry but Richards has to replace Perry, he&rsquo&#59;s served us well but he is the week link. Ledley, who is twice as good as Campbell was at that age, him and Richards at the back will be stylee wicked!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>Rosemary Eisenstadt:</STRONG> With our present team it is our only realistic chance to win a trophy and qualify for Europe. However, if we had a team that could compete at the highest level then it would be an irrelevance. Talking of which - why have we no cover for Steve Carr? Taricco is clearly a left sided player. Also, is Les really still up to scoring 20 goals in the Premiership? It was not that long a go that we would have snapped up Kevin Phillips, Francis Jeffers etc. Come on let&rsquo&#59;s not settle for the Worthington Cup as our ambition!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>Tom Anderton:</STRONG> My name is Tom, I&rsquo&#59;m 11 and the Worthington Cup is important for us. Glenn has realised this and it could make the trophy cabinet better (when we get rid of the cobwebs) and we would be in Europe.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp&#59; </SPAN>MISSION ACCOMPLASHED!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>Neil Mackay:</STRONG> I think that it is good for the fans and the club to take it seriously. Any passport into Europe needs to be taken seriously and being the squad game that we now have, it is also an oppurtunity to give others first team experience which will be vital. The club needs to be in Europe and with Glenn in charge it will be very soon. Come on you Spurs!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><EM><STRONG>And a mixed bag…<o:p></o:p></STRONG></EM></SPAN> <H1></H1><STRONG>Adam Gardiner:</STRONG> I wonder if I&rsquo&#59;m alone in thinking that, given our current defensive crisis, a certain Les Ferdinand would provide more than adequate cover? He has all of the attributes required by all the top defenders - a good reading of the game, strength and he is excellent in the air!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><B>Robert Andrew:</B> Good going boys, three points in the bag against Sunderland. I would like to ask Glenn and the boys to save the best for Nov 17th when we face Arsenal at White Hart Lane. I am hoping to be one of the lucky fans to get a ticket as it will be my first time seeing you all at the Spurs. I will be coming over from Ireland to see this match to do everyone proud and prove Sol Campbell that he should have stayed and that our defence is just as good, if not better without him. Tell Ziege and Sheringham that they will make the best strike team in the Premiership. PS. Glenn, WHY did you only give Teddy Sheringham a short contract? The man has at least 3 years minimum, sort it out he is the best striker we've had since you left to play in Europe.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><B>John Vinh:</B> oHey, How about giving Kasey Keller a chance to play more often, especially on games during midweek......Sullivan is not better than Keller.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><B>Colin Brice:</B> Ledley King has been outstanding this season (and much of last season!) and I am keen to see him team up alongside Dean Richards. With Chris Perry, Goran Bunjecevic and Gary Doherty fighting over the third centre back slot, surely it is time place some attention on our attacking players. Davies looks like a real prospect in the middle of the park, but I don't see inspiration anywhere else other than the full-backs (and then only once Carr is back to partner Ziege!) At 35 Teddy can't carry our attacking threat all on his own!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P><STRONG>James Crank:</STRONG> I think that Ledley King has been our best player this season, he has held together a inexperienced defence and I think that he will learn a lot from Dean Richards and will be capped by England before the end of the season.
