Elizabeth Lambert is seen punching, kicking and, in one instance, pulling an opponent down by her hair during a game for University of New Mexico Lobos against Brigham Young University. Team coach Kit Vela said: Her actions clearly crossed the line of fair play, while a grovelling Lambert said: I am deeply and wholeheartedly regretful for my actions. My actions were uncalled for. I let my emotions get the best of me in a heated situation. Incredibly, the 20-year-old was only booked during the game for kicking the ball into a tumbling opponents face. But following an uproar, the University of New Mexico suspended her indefinitely from all athletic facilities and programmes.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: Wehaveassembledwhatwebelieve tobeoneof themosttalentedsquads we have had during our time in the Premier League. The trading profit of 56.5m is derived from the sales of players based on the value the club assigns on its books, not simply what they were bought and sold for. That is because profit is booked as a one-time gain, whereas the value of players is written down over the life of their contracts. For example, a player that comes up through the youth ranks would be nominally valued at almost noth- ing and sold for pure profit. During the year, the club sold players for a total return of 72.5m, while it spent a total of 119.3m on players such as Luka Modric, Heurelho Gomes and Roman Pavlyuchenko. With Harry Redknapp in charge, the club finished eighth in the Pre- mier League last season, following their worst-ever start under Juande Ramos. Media and broadcasting revenues increased by 11 percent to 44.8m. The club said leasing of corporate boxes and lounge memberships at White Hart Lane had fallen because of the recession.
