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).

Michael Brown is back in the squad for Wednesday night's trip to Blackburn Rovers in the Premiership.


The midfielder is fit again after recovering from the foot and stomach problems that ruled him out for four months.


Otherwise, it's very much as you were from Saturday's win against Middlesbrough with a couple of players overcoming knocks and Ledley King (groin), Wayne Routledge (foot), Tom Huddlestone, Sean Davis, Noe Pamarot (all knee) and Mounir El Hamdaoui (ankle) all out but all improving.


"It's looking not too bad," revealed Head Coach Martin Jol at Spurs Lodge this afternoon. "Yesterday it looked a different picture but today everyone is fit and we don't have too many problems.


"We had a couple of knocks and bruises but for the rest we are just fine.


"Browny is back in the squad and fit for selection again, so that is a big boost for the team.


"Ledley is getting better but will not be involved at Blackburn. Sean Davis is still out, he needs another week but is almost 100 per cent fit now. Mounir El Hamdaoui started running today, so he's looking to be fully fit in a week, perhaps two weeks at the most.


"Tom Huddlestone is progressing well but it's still a knee ligament injury.


"Noe Pamarot needs another month after his knee injury and Wayne Routledge is a blow for us because he was doing well, he'll be out for up to two months."
