What The Papers Say: Dec 9-16

Posted on 9 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).

Keeping an eye out for Spurs links in the daily tabloid press...

Sunday
Most Sunday's tabloids go with Darren Anderton from Friday's press call particularly his statement that he would never play for Arsenal. The NOW suggest Sergei Rebrov is now available for £1m while the Mirror say Chris Perry is hoping for a new contract.

The Star link us with Montpellier's Robert and Mansare and Arsenal's Ray Parlour.

Saturday
Henry Winter talks in-depth to Kasey Keller in the Telegraph's On The Spot slot.

Friday
Gus Poyet and Dean Richards preview Sunday's Arsenal game in the Mirror and Express respectively.

Wednesday
Just the one snippet today - the Sun claims we failed in a loan bid for Dane Benchmann.

Tuesday
Darren Anderton says we have the strongest squad in his time at the club in the Sun and Star. The Mail run a positive piece from Glenn from Sunday's post-match press conference while chairman Daniel Levy's quotes about the future of White Hart Lane - that initially appeared in the London Evening Standard - find their way into a number of newspapers.

The chairman is quoted: "There is no point in having a larger stadium where we are if fans cannot get to and from the ground.

"The local authority would like us to retain our presence in Tottenham but we cannot sit here for ever and a day waiting for the Government to take action."

Monday
Match reports today after Sunday's 3-1 win against West Brom. Baggies boss is quoted in most papers saying his side were 'not outplayed but out-finished'.
