WTPS: Carr's setback

Posted on 21 September 2001  - 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).

Most of the tabloids go with the news that Stephen Carr will be out for up to four months after undergoing knee surgery in America.

The Daily Star, Sun, Daily Mail and Mirror all go with the story with Andy Dillon quoting him in the Sun's story, headlined 'Carr revs up for Cup', as follows: "Throughout all this I've had next year's World Cup finals in my sights and I'd be lying if I said the thought of missing out hadn't crossed my mind.

"It was bad enough not being able to play a part in last month's win over Holland, which guaranteed us a play-off place at worst.

"So even the faintest possibility of not being in contention for selection for the finals themselves would have been unthinkable.

"Like any other player, I have always dreamed of playing in the World Cup.

"That's why I had to go to America now rather than a few months down the line when it could have been too late."
