Coach's Corner

Posted on 22 October 2003  - 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).

Chris Hughton revealed that Kasey Keller's half-time reaction to his mistake at Leicester on Sunday was typical of the man.

The USA international goalkeeper was in the first half spotlight at the Walkers Stadium when he let a speculative effort from former teammate Muzzy Izzet squirt through his legs, leaving the team facing a deficit at the break.

The first team coach said it was a source of great delight to the team that they were able to compensate for the slip and still register the full three points.

"Typical Kasey - he held his hand up," reported Chris. "We're all delighted for him that we got the result and, I'd have to say, he only made one mistake in the game.

"That is a goalkeeper's life. You make a mistake and you either get away with it or you don't."

The fact that Kasey is not a player to be affected by adversity and carry on in a game as normal is, according to Chris, an attribute of the leading goalkeepers.

"That is a trait of all the best goalkeepers. A goalkeeper will always make a mistake, even when he is having a good period."
