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).

We knew it would be difficult but our confidence is high at the moment and we are playing good football, scoring goals and it's very enjoying to play in.
We have been playing well without getting the results we've deserved. we're creating chances, having that little bit of luck and we've started hanging onto the lead.
We're playing good football. There are a lot of good players in the team playing well at the moment. Confidence is high and if we can continue that it will be great. We played very well here again, especially in the first half, like at Sunderland where there is a big crowd that put you under pressure but we handled it quite well.

Potentially I would have to say this is as good as it'sbeen. When ytou look around the squad, not just the first team, it definitely has the potential to be the best team. There have been times when the team was nearly there and we've sold key players at key times. It seems like we're not doing that anymore. We've got great youngsters and we've brought good players into the club.
I don't think we will sell like that again. A lot of the players are tied to long contracts, that sort of thing and to me that's the biggest thing, that we keep hold of the squad and, of course, add to it.

We come here and believe if we play football we can get the right result. Once we were 2-0 up we grinded out the result. We're more positive away from home this season. The manager doesn't treat away games any differently. You just go out and play. Just try and play football and it doesn't matter. We'll look at their team and we'll try and play the best we can to get a result, home or away.

It's nice for it to be talked about in that way. I've had a difficult eight months and for people to be talking about England again is nice. I'm just happy to be fit. If people want to talk about that it's great.
It feels okay. Tendontis is a little sore at times but although I felt it out there it is not too much of a problem. I'm able to play without worrying and that's the main thing. The more I play the stronger I'll get.
I get more confidence the more I play. I can feel it sometimes but I just have to look after it.
