Clive happy

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).

Clive Allen was more than satisfied with the performance of his team following the 2-0 reserve victory over West Ham.


The reserves have now banked four points from two games this season, although the cast was considerably different at Broadhall Way to the one that gained a point at Fulham in the opener.


"I thought we did well, with it being this stage of the season, the first home game and the team having changed dramatically from the first game," reflected the Development Coach.


"The senior players were excellent, which helped the young players and we saw some excellent performances.


"My only disappointment is we didn't get more goals because we created chances. If we had taken them we could have really killed the game off. Overall though, I was very pleased."


Even though Clive was able to name a side containing the likes of Anthony Gardner, Goran Bunjevcevic and Michael Carrick, he did point out beforehand that strong looking teams do not necessarily translate into wins and big scorelines at reserve level.


"I did say that, I knew West Ham would be very keen as a young side and worked very hard. I thought we showed the quality we possess and that is what you need in these sort of games.


"For the senior boys it was very important for them to get 90 minutes and they have gone about it in the right way. I can't ask for more than that and, if they perform like that, they will obviously give Jacques a problem and myself.


"This is exactly what you want at a football club."
