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).

Jacques Santini will be without four players for our trip to Fulham in the Premiership on Saturday.

Erik Edman (head), Thimothee Atouba (knee), Anthony Gardner (foot) and Jamie Redknapp (suspended) miss out.

As usual, Head Coach Jacques will wait until the end of this afternoon's training session before finalising plans for Craven Cottage although he underlined that the lads were tired after their efforts against Bolton in the Carling Cup on Wednesday.

"The team is very tired because we played two hours with extra time and had a long trip," said Jacques on Thursday. "We now play at 3pm on Saturday!

"I hope after the last training session on Friday we will know more because a few players didn't play in Wednesday's game and three or four are not ready to train because they have taken a kick or are very tired."

Jacques pointed out though that the spirit of the squad couldn't be faulted after the 4-3 win at Bolton.

"It is very difficult at this moment but I'm happy with the spirit of the players," he added. "That is compensating for the players out and helped us win the Carling Cup game against Bolton."
