Ben wishes it wasn't all over

Posted on 11 May 2002  - 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).

Ben Thatcher admits he's disappointed the season is coming to an end at Leicester City on Saturday.

The tigerish defender has been in fine form in a run of 13 starts in our last 16 games.

Ben recognises we haven't always seen the best of him in a Spurs shirt - especially in his early months at the club last season, followed by a lengthy injury absence - but he is delighted to have showed fans and boss Glenn Hoddle what he is all about.

"I'm a little disappointed the season is ending now," said Ben. "I've had a run of games, felt I've done okay and the results have gone well.

"It has been nice to turn around my poor performances and show people who perhaps doubted me that I can do a decent job.

"The main thing is that I've got myself in the gaffer's mind for next season.

"Glenn Hoddle is a quality manager, bossed at the highest level and you just want people like that to think you are a decent player.

"If I can be in his plans for next season then that's great news.

"I've got three years left and the mood I'm in, I'd love to extend that. It's a fantastic club and I'm just pleased I'm doing myself justice now."
