Police Look For Lovenkrands' £30,000 Watch
By Footy Mad - Editor
Updated Thursday, 7th February 2013
West Midlands police have appealed to the public in a bid to return an expensive watch to former Toon winger Peter Lovenkrands after the Dane was mugged.
Two hooded youths tackled him outside his house in Solihull and made off with his £30,000 diamond-encrusted Hublot watch and also attempted to snatch his wedding ring, but apparently it wouldn’t come off his finger.
Lovenkrands was unhurt in the incident, but police have urged anyone who is offered the watch to come forward and have issued a photo of it.
Detective Sergeant Andrew O’Keeffe, from Solihull Police, said:
“The watch that was stolen is very unique and we would ask anyone who is offered a watch of this kind to contact us immediately.
“Fortunately the victim was unhurt following the robbery but this was a frightening attack and we are appealing for the public’s help to find the offenders.
“If you have any information that can help our investigation, please come forward and call us.”
WHITE HART LANE - TOTTENHAM
What Is It Like For Away Supporters?
Away fans are housed in one corner of the ground in between the South & West Stands, where up to 2,900 supporters (if demand requires it) can be accommodated, in the lower and upper tiers. If you have a ticket for the upper tier then prepare yourself for quite a climb to reach the away area. You are though rewarded with a great view of the action from this section and the leg room is ample. The facilities in this modern stand are above average. On the downside there is little space between the away and home fans. As you would expect there is plenty of banter between the two, but the stewards tend to take a tougher line on the away support. On my last visit a number of fans were ejected from the ground, plus there were repeated warnings to away fans to remain seated.
One strange aspect of sitting in the upper tier is seeing the Police Control Box directly above you, where a number of uniformed faces can be seen peering down on the away supporters. Although I have not personally experienced any problems at White Hart Lane, it may be wise to exercise caution around the ground and you may consider keeping colours covered. Expect to be searched by stewards on entry to the away section.
Where To Drink?
Due to a number of pubs going out of business in the area around the ground, the choice for away fans is now rather limited. Simon Hornby informs me; 'The best place for away fans to get a drink is the Harringey Irish club on the Pretoria Rd which is opposite White Hart Lane station. It has two large bars showing Sky Sports, offers reasonably priced food and you can also park there for £10'. Dean Palmer adds; 'When you get off the train at White Hart Lane, go straight out of the metal gates and walk straight down the road in front of you. After a couple of hundred yards there is a car park on the left hand side, and the social club is in there. There are always a few away fans in there, and kids are also allowed in there too'.
Tim Pick a visiting Wolverhampton Wanderers fan adds; 'We drank at the Elmhust on Lordship Lane, which is about a ten minute walk away from the ground. It is large mock tudor style looking pub with 4 or 5 Sky Sports screens. There were home fans and away fans in colours mixing with out any problems. Prices were okay too (for London)'.
Carsie a Spurs fan from Belfast recommends; 'The Three Compasses which is situated in Queen Street (behind Middlesex University), which is a five minute walk from White Hart Lane Station'.
It may be an idea to drink in Central London before the game and then take a train to White Hart Lane Station. There is a Wetherspoon outlet at Liverpool Street Station from where you get the train to White Hart Lane. If you decide to take the long walk from Seven Sisters tube station to the stadium, then there are a number of pubs along the way.
Steve Dobson adds; 'I also suggest that visiting fans with a thirst for real ale, consider catching the train from Liverpool Street and stop off at Hackney Downs to visit the Pembury Tavern. Good beer and quality food. From there it is only 10 minutes on the train to White Hart Lane. The pub is only a couple of hundred yards from Hackney Downs station on Amhurst Road'. The pub which is featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide has no less than 16 real ales on offer! The question is, will you still then make it to the match?
Inside the ground alcohol is served in the refreshment areas. This is in the form of plastic bottles of Carlsberg (500ml). But please note that alcohol is not served in the away section at half time.
How To Get There By Car And Where To Park
Leave the M25 at Junction 25 and take the A10 towards Enfield. Continue on the A10 through Enfield and at the roundabout with the Northern Circular (A406), turn left onto the A406 (Sterling Way). Turn right into Fore Road (the A1010) which becomes the High Road and you will come to the ground on your left.
On street parking is virtually non-existent around the stadium on matchdays as a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) is in operation which means that only local residents who have a parking permit and blue badge holders can park legally. The perimeter of the zone is up to a mile from the ground and this has led to some private car parks near to the stadium charging up to £15 for the privilege. If you do park around the area, make sure that you take notice of the advisory parking notices attached to lamp posts, as otherwise you may find that you car gets towed away.
By Train Or Tube
White Hart Lane Station is the nearest to the stadium, which is only a few minutes walk away. It is served by trains from Liverpool Street. Located at Liverpool Street is a handy Wetherspoons pub, plus a cornish pasties outlet opposite. Richard Crouch adds 'The best station to get to White Hart Lane from is Northumberland Park. Come out of the station and cross the road and you are in Park Lane. It is a ten minute stroll to the ground'.
The nearest London Underground station is Seven Sisters which is on the Victoria Line. The ground is about a twenty minute walk away, but there are plenty of buses running up Tottenham High Road to the ground. Chris Knibs informs me; 'Although there are plenty of buses, not many of them go past the ground. Those that do mostly have numbers that end in a 9, so take 149, 249, 279 or 349. You can also get a normal overground train from Seven Sisters to White Hart Lane station.
PLEASE VOTE -
Liverpool want Hatem Ben Arfa in any deal that will see Andy Carroll rejoin Newcastle in the summer.
Let's be honest - both players are injury prone and not the sort of pair you can build a team around.
The French international has missed much of the season through injury but over his time at the Magpies he has convinced Reds boss Brendan Rodgers enough to take him to Anfield according to the Daily Mail.
Although the winger did not put in a transfer request during the January transfer window, he has made a lot of noise in recent weeks saying his ambition is to return to France.
Liverpool is NOT France, but let's not forget David Ginola's plea to Kevin Keegan back in 1997/8 when he said he was desperate to return to France because he was home sick ... and ended up in London at White Hart Lane!
Ben Arfa's affiliation with Newcastle is is not as committed as we thought and he has stated a desire to play for the rich, Qatari-backed club Paris Saint-Germain.
Carroll has been on loan at West Ham after the £35million signing found it hard to make a mark at Anfield, and would walk over broken glass to return to Tyneside.
He has scored twice in 12 appearances for the Hammers so far, the latest coming on Saturday when he headed the winner against Swansea having returned the side following a two-month injury lay-off.

I wasn't particularly convinced we had turned the corner with the win at Villa Park ... but this went a hell of a long way to banishing our relegation concerns.
Moussa Sissoko made a statement at St James' Park that he is a class act and he ready to 'rock and roll' in the Premiership.
The France midfielder marked his home debut with a 68th-minute strike to level the game at 2-2 and then blasted home a brilliant winner to further boost Alan Pardew's survival mission.
Chelsea looked to be on their way to a first victory in four attempts in all competitions when, after Frank Lampard had cancelled out Jonas Gutierrez's first-half opener by scoring his 10th Barclays Premier League goal of the season for the 10th successive campaign, Juan Mata curled home a superb 61st-minute effort.
But a rejuvenated Newcastle refused to accept defeat and Sissoko snatched a dramatic win which was secured when Steven Taylor blocked Lampard's goal-bound effort deep into injury-time.
It was meant to be striker Demba Ba's day as he returned to St James' Park, where he had given sterling service in his 18 months in a black and white shirt.
But having arrived to a less than harmonious welcome, with some Newcastle fans accusing him of chasing the money by heading for Stamford Bridge last month, he departed prematurely with a bloodied nosed to more catcalls after just 42 minutes.
The Magpies followed him down the tunnel just a few minutes later with the advantage at the end of a thoroughly entertaining 45 minutes of football.
While Ba's departure from Tyneside might have come as a major blow to Pardew, the early signs are that the recruitment drive launched in response was astutely conducted.
The confidence gained in Tuesday night's 2-1 victory at Aston Villa with new boys Mathieu Debuchy, Sissoko and Yoan Gouffran in the team was in evidence as the home side set about their task with some relish.
Papiss Cisse, the man Pardew hopes will supply the goals which once came from Ba, saw a fifth-minute effort blocked by defender Gary Cahill, but then failed to test returning keeper Petr Cech adequately when played in by Sissoko after 20 minutes and then Yohan Cabaye 16 minutes later.
Cabaye and full-back Davide Santon both sent rasping volleys just off target in an end-to-end contest in which the Magpies gave as good as they got.
However, Chelsea might have gone in front twice, Lampard blasting high over from Ashley Cole's 15th-minute pull-back, and then Ba forcing a 32nd-minute save from Tim Krul before heading the rebound inches wide under pressure from Fabricio Coloccini, whose boot caused the damage which forced his exit.
The opening goal eventually arrived four minutes before the break and from an unusual source.
Newcastle's final ball had at times been ordinary, but Santon produced a telling cross to allow Gutierrez to glance a deft header across Cech and into the bottom corner to send the home fans into raptures.
They were equally pleased to see the back of Ba seconds later but, as the whistle sounded, there was a general acceptance that they would need to produce a much better second-half display than they did at Villa Park if they were to hold on to their advantage.
Chelsea returned in determined mood to pin the Magpies back into their own half, and as Pardew's men retreated, Cisse found himself isolated in attack despite the best efforts of Sissoko and Gouffran.
They were back on terms within 10 minutes in stunning style when Lampard controlled Cole's pass on his chest, took another touch and then lashed a dipping shot past the helpless Krul.
Things might have been worse for Newcastle on the hour when James Perch gifted the ball to Oscar and the visitors broke at pace for Mata to cross for Lampard, but he headed straight at Krul.
The Dutchman was not so fortunate seconds later, however, when Torres laid the ball back to Mata, who curled a superb left-foot shot over Krul and into the top corner.
John Terry only just managed to prevent Cisse from connecting with Santon's 65th-minute cross in front of goal, but Krul had to back-pedal hurriedly to keep out Branislav Ivanovic's speculative effort from his own half a minute later.
However, the home side dragged themselves back into it with 22 minutes remaining when, after Cech had parried Gouffran's effort, Sissoko steered the rebound home.
Cech had to be at his best to palm away Sissoko's searing drive after he had run away from Cole down the right, and the former Toulouse midfielder tore the Blues open once again seven minutes from time before cutting inside Cahill, only to toe-poke his effort straight at Cech.
But the Czech Republic international could not deny the Frenchman in the final minutes when he exchanged passes with Santon before drilling a sweet drive past Cech to win it.
