What The Papers Say: Jan 13-19

Posted on 13 January 2003  - 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).

A brief daily look at all things Spurs in the newspapers...

Sunday
The NOTW reports that Sergei Rebrov is set to sue us for restraint of trade. We're linked with Bertrand Robert in the Star and Blackburn's David Dunn in the Express. The People suggests Les Ferdinand will complete a move to West Ham this week. The Telegraph runs a speculative piece quoting 'sources' at the club about the possibility of a ground-sharing plan with Arsenal, although it runs an old quote from chairman Daniel Levy saying there is 'no conversation taking place with Arsenal'.

Saturday
Sergei Rebrov's questioning of his Fulham move makes most newspapers. The Mail links us with a loan move for Ipswich's Marcus Bent and the link with Bolton's Michael Ricketts lingers on.

Friday
The Daily Mail carries our piece with Glenn encouraging supporters to get behind Steffen Iversen and also Thursday's item where David Pleat defends the club against Bolton's suggestion of improper conduct regarding Michael Ricketts. Also, the lengthy Spurs article links us with a move for Millwall's Steven Reid.

Most of the papers report that Sergei Rebrov is still wanted by Turkish outfit Fenerbahce and that he is set for further talks with Fulham.

The Star also links us with a move for Reid and reports that Les Ferdinand is now a target for Middlesbrough boss Steve McClaren.

Wednesday January 15
A few snippets around suggest that Bolton have rejected a bid for Michael Ricketts and Ipswich Town are looking at taking Lars Hirschfeld on loan.

Tuesday January 14
Fulham's interest in Sergei Rebrov makes most papers this morning, although the striker has suggested that he prefers Fenerbache in Turkey because of a better chance of regular first team football. Meanwhile, Steffen Freund tells the Star that he might have to start looking for a new club as the club has shown no interest in renewing his contract.

Monday January 13
The papers concentrate on match reports from Sunday's thriller against Everton.
