Coach's Corner - The Hughton View

Posted on 7 April 2004  - 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).

We are talking about another narrow defeat, this time against Chelsea, but I think we can take some pleasure from the performance - one that didn't warrant a defeat.

I felt we certainly should have had a penalty and, with regard to goalscoring opportunities, we felt we had as many if not more than Chelsea and as much of the general possession.

The fact is we didn't get the three points that is frustrating and disappointing for us, but certainly we can gain something from the display.

We haven't scored a goal of our own recently and this has come under a bit of scrutiny. You must continue to do the things you believe in on the training pitch and these things come in phases. There might be a time when you are not doing as much attacking work and it is likely to be the time when you are scoring more goals when it comes to the games.

All you can do is believe in the way you want to play the game and the training you do on a daily basis. You hope that what you see on a match day is a reflection of this.

If I look at the goalscoring aspect of game, we have four very good strikers in the squad and we have enough confidence in the ability and they will score goals when we hopefully soon come through this patch we are going through.
