WTPS: Derby countdown

Posted on 13 November 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).

The count to derby day starts in earnest in Tuesday's newspapers.

The Express, Mirror and Daily Star all report that Sol Campbell will be fit to face us on Saturday after missing out on England duty at the weekend with a hamstring problem.

The Mirror, Star and Sun all quote Dennis Bergkamp claiming that European games are now more important than the north London derby. The Dutch striker insists: "You have to realise Arsenal is a European club and the north London issue is less and less important to us."

Meanwhile, Glenn Hoddle's achievement of being named Manager of the Month squeezes into most papers.
