Biggest yet for Simon

Posted on 12 January 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).

Simon Davies says that Wednesday's Worthington Cup semi-final at Chelsea is among the biggest games he has played in his career so far - the biggest at club level.

Simon played in another new role, tucked in behind Les Ferdinand, and he feels the system worked well.

"It's probably up there with the international matches for Wales," said Simon.

"It was a good game, we played well and I thought we worked our system well - trying to get them on the counter.

"I suppose we've got to be happy with just a single goal defeat, we're very confident going into the next leg now."

Simon explains that he enjoys the variety of positions he is employed in but, in truth, he simply enjoys playing.

"I've played in a few different roles now and I'm enjoying it. Just to play in the games when the manager selects me is great.

"It was a local derby with a lot at stake - to get an appearance in Cardiff. So it was a massive game for us and hopefully we'll come out on top at home."

Simon laughs when reminded of the moment in the first half when he literally shrugged off the giant Marcel Desailly to put in a dangerous low cross in the Chelsea penalty area. After all, he is not the biggest of lads.

"I know, I didn't really know who it was when I was going for the ball. When I realised it was him I thought he would have made mincemeat of me! I think he might have been a bit off-balance and I just got to the ball first."
