What the Papers Say: Dec 16-22

Posted on 17 December 2002  - 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).

Links to all things Spurs from the daily tabloid press...

The Independent talks about our options regarding where we'll be playing in the future - redevelopment of White Hart Lane, groundsharing or a new ground.

The Express reports that Sergei Rebrov can go on a free in January while the Times say Brent Council will not allow clubs (ie, ourselves and Arsenal) to share the new Wembley, when it's built.

The Star says West Brom are no longer interested in Les Ferdinand and Liverpool want to swap Emile Heskey for Simon Davies. The Observer links us with Salas and Bowyer.

The Express suggest Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle are all interested in Simon Davies.

One small snippet in the Express claims that Gary Doherty is a target of Cardiff City.

Just snippets regarding Les Ferdinand's imminent three-match ban in the Mirror and Sun while the Mail suggests no club, including ourselves, are interested in signing Lee Bowyer.

The Mirror and Mail report on Les Ferdinand's dismissal for the reserves against Arsenal last night, while several papers quote Steffen Freund on the key to doing well against the Highbury outfit.

Reports and some reaction from our superb performance in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Lane is the thrust of the morning sports sections.

The London Evening Standard reports later on Jamie Redknapp's unfortunate toe fracture, reported here on the official site on Sunday, while Teddy Sheringham defends Kasey Keller for his part in Arsenal's equaliser.

"I have no complaints about the penalty decision and there is no blame on Kasey Keller. He has kept us in games many times this season."

Later in the report it is suggested that Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp will step up his efforts to take Tim Sherwood to Fratton Park.
