Daz's Euro vision
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).
Darren Anderton sees no reason why he can't complete the missing link in his career at Spurs - playing European club football.
The midfielder has played and scored in World Cup Finals, played in European Championship Finals, Cup Finals at Wembley and has been capped 30 times by England.
But our longest-serving current player missed out on the only time we have been in European competition in his time at the club back in 1999-2000.
Darren pondered: "I've been here 10 years and enjoyed it but we've only got into Europe once through winning the Worthington Cup and looking back, that is a bit disappointing.
"It's a shame we didn't win the Worthington Cup last season or finish in the top five but that's gone now and we move on.
"Last year was definitely a step in the right direction and I think we can keep it going.
"I want to play European football, like anyone else, I want to play at the highest level possible. There is no reason why we can't get there at Spurs but it's up to us to go out there and do it."
Having drawn at Feyenoord at the weekend, Darren is now looking forward to our friendly double-header against Celtic on Wednesday and Lazio on Sunday - Gus Poyet has already likened it to a mini-European competition.
"You need games like this," Darren explained. "Feyenoord was very difficult but you get a lot more out of it. It's hard work and you are shattered but you need that before the season starts.
"Pre-season has been good so far. I was pleased with how last season went, disappointed as everyone else in how it ended but it's a new season now and everyone is looking forward to it."
