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).

Dean Richards is the main cause for concern as Glenn Hoddle prepares for Sunday's televised Premiership clash against Newcastle United.

The big defender missed our Boxing Day draw against Charlton with a sore Achilles tendon.

Glenn rates his chances of returning as '50-50'. "We've a few knocks in there," revealed the boss after Thursday's 2-2 draw. "Deano's got an Achilles that I hope settles down but it will be a late shout before I pick the team."

At least Glenn has been boosted by the return of Les Ferdinand and Mauricio Taricco, who were both on the bench against Charlton after toe and throat problems respectively.

That just leaves Jamie Redknapp (broken toe), Gary Doherty and Anthony Gardner (both knee) on the sidelines.
