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).

Stephen Clemence has underlined how important our last five games of the season are &mdash&#59; so players can impress new boss Glenn Hoddle.<P class=MsoNormal>Midfielder &lsquo&#59;Clem&rsquo&#59; didn&rsquo&#59;t do his prospects any harm by bagging his first goal of the season in our remarkable win at Sunderland.<P class=MsoNormal>Stephen&rsquo&#59;s goal, a clinical right-foot volley after a delightful one-touch passing move, kick-started our revival from 2-0 down to 3-2 up as Gary Doherty grabbed goals in the 74<SUP>th</SUP> an 88<SUP>th</SUP> minutes.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;At the end of the day each one of us has got to try and show what we can do,&rdquo&#59; insisted Stephen. &ldquo&#59;The manager will try to make signings in the summer and we all want to be here next season.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Clem&rsquo&#59;s strike was his first of the season &mdash&#59; he recently said he was due his &lsquo&#59;one for the season&rsquo&#59; &mdash&#59; and his record in front of goal is one area he admits he needs to improve.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I told you I&rsquo&#59;d get my one for the season the other week!&rdquo&#59; he said. &ldquo&#59;Seriously, it was important to get us back to 2-1 and then I thought we played really well for the rest of the second half.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;The manager and John Gorman had a bit of a go at us at half-time, said we weren&rsquo&#59;t really fighting for anything so we went out second half, had a good go and got the three points that I thought we deserved in the end.<P class=MsoNormal>"It was a great performance and always nice to get a goal late on - it&rsquo&#59;s happened to us a few times.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We looked better in the second half. We switched a few things around, looked more compact and dug in, made some good runs, good movement off the ball and it&rsquo&#59;s great we got the three points.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
